Important remarks

- Egypt is a Muslim country and the month of Ramadan is of major significance to its residents. During Ramadan, entertainment and alcohol will be restricted in most of the country. The sale of alcohol will be restricted in many places, although some establishments will offer alcohol for sale to tourists. During this period, local businesses may also have shorter opening hours.

- The tours include cultural stops at local workshops so you can learn about the production of traditional crafts.

- Mandatory payments and optional excursions are payable in cash once in Egypt.

- Triple rooms in Africa are generally rooms with twin beds or a double, in which a folding bed is installed to accommodate the third person. Due to the inconvenience this causes, we advise against using this option as far the possible.

- Check-in at hotels is from 12 p.m.

- Mandatory payments at destination (service fees and/or general tips) must be paid in cash.

- Cruise on the Nile: The category that we publish corresponds to the official categorization of the authority of the Ministry of Tourism of Egypt. However, this category does not correspond, in most cases, to European quality standards.

- The order of the itinerary may be altered for logistical reasons, without prior notice, but no scheduled trips will be cancelled (except in the case that adverse weather conditions prevent its realisation).

- A credit card is considered a guarantee, so sometimes you will need one for check-in at hotels.

- Prices are calculated based on admission fees to the sights as of the date of publication. If there is an increase in these prices, you will be promptly informed.

- If you are a person with reduced mobility, please contact us to confirm the suitability of the trip.

- Consult the necessary documentation to enter the destinations visited and for transit in the countries where air stopovers are made.
