  • Travelling on a felucca is a unique Eqyptian experience. The deck area is covered with comfortable mattresses that will be used for relaxation while cruising along the Nile. They are also used for sleeping over night. Spending the night like this on the Nile will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Enjoy the nighttime ambience of the river and starry sky before turning in for the night. Sleeping on a spot near the outer mattress area will allow for some extra space.
  • As this is ancient Egypt, walkways around many Egyptian ruins can be dusty, and rocky. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to get a bit dusty! (You can look forward to a shower at the hotel afterwards).
  • Some hotels in Egypt don’t have lifts so you may need to carry your bags up stairs. It can help to avoid overpacking and bring a bag that you can maneuver easily. Or keep an eye out for hotel staff who can help with luggage. You may even have some helpful fellow travellers who can assist!
  • Temperatures in Egypt can be extremely hot. Travel during slightly cooler times, to avoid the heat of high summer and enjoy more pleasant sightseeing conditions. If you do travel in summer, be sure to pack sunscreen, wear light and airy clothing and stay hydrated.
