What are the hotels like?
We will be staying in a variety of accommodations during our trip. These accommodations range from four star hotels, to quaint but well equipped local "camps". All accommodations include beds, bathrooms, and breakfast. Rooms will be shared doubles and triples. If you would like to have your own room, we can arrange this at an additional cost.
What is the food like?
Egyptian food is delicious and we'll be eating a lot of it! You can expect a mix of meat and vegetarian dishes. Included in the trip price are 12 group meals - the rest are independent. We feel this gives you the best opportunity to try as many different foods as you'd like, while also keeping the trip price affordable. Many meals in Egypt can cost as little as a few dollars. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies so we can accommodate you!
