Rates are based on double occupancy. Tour prices do not include airfare, trip insurance, optional add-on activities, personalized tips, alcohol, and entrance fees to a limited number of attractions. Group flight arrangements can be arranged with our experienced travel agent so that participants can fly together. 

There is an expression in Egypt - ان شاء الله/Inshallah - that means "God willing" or "Hopefully." This often translates to the best laid plans changing with little notice, so it's best to be flexible and willing to go with the flow. Because in Egypt, when one plan changes, another magical moment is waiting around the corner. And particularly in Cairo, we will follow a loose itinerary in order to accomodate those very special (and often last minute) special adventures!
