Up to off this trip

Trip Overview

The pyramids, the Sphinx, the Nile... they're all here. But where are you?

You've seen them in books. You've seen them in documentaries. You've seen them in movie after movie after movie. But experiencing them in real life = a whole different level of AMAZING. Ancient, archaeological and wall-to-wall ICONIC, this sure as hell isn't your average holiday. But then - you're not your average traveller.

Tonight, meet your fellow Topdeckers and get settled in. You’ll all be mates in no time! Please note: On arrival an airport representative with a Topdeck sign will be waiting to assist you with the visa and immigration process. The cost of the visa is not included. For those eligible for a visa on arrival, this will need to be paid in cash in USD (please check the eligibility for your passport). You will then be transferred from the airport to your hotel to check in.

OTHER INFORMATION

FELUCCA SAILING 

Feluccas are traditional wooden sailing boats that have been used as transport up and down the Nile for centuries. Meaning? No motors. No cabins. No hairdryers. The boat’s broad canvas sails offer shade and protection from the elements by day. And by night, we’ll sleep outdoors on comfy mattresses – so don’t forget a sleeping bag. And for other…things? DW there’s a toilet and shower on board. All meals are prepared by the felucca crew aboard the boat.  

During winter months it can get cold on the river, especially at night. So, it’s a good idea to bring a jacket or warm windcheater during these months.  

RAMADAN 

As many Middle Eastern countries are of Islamic faith, it is important to remember that lots of restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours during Ramadan. As a result, some optional and included activities on your trip may be affected. 

Ramadan, which takes place in either April, May or June, is an incredibly important and sacred month for Muslims. When equipped with some basic knowledge, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in this special tradition and experience all its highlights.

    I wish I had been told before about hotels and stays. Although I loved Felucca sail I wasn’t sure about some of the hotels. If I had more information on this I probably would have chosen better
