On your trip you will stay in tourist-class and three-star hotels, selected for their good locations and services. Rooms are shared on a single, twin or triple-share basis, depending on what you have booked.
The 'More Inclusions' section on this document has a full breakdown of all accommodation.
Feluccas are traditional Egyptian sailing boats that have been used as transport up and down the Nile for centuries. A felucca ride is very relaxing, as it’s a simple boat with no engine or modern conveniences. You sleep on cushioned mattresses at all times of the year under a canopy for protection against the elements. No linen is provided, so bring a sleeping bag! Cooking is done by the felucca crew on the boat.
During winter months it can get relatively cold on the river, especially at night. It can even rain! We advise passengers to bring a jacket or warm windcheater during these months. Daytime temperatures during these months are, on the whole, very pleasant.
You should be aware that there are no toilet facilities on the felucca, nor on the banks of the Nile where we stop regularly. Bring toilet paper with you and leave your modesty at home!
Please note: While we believe that felucca sailing is a relaxing and traditional way to experience the Nile, it may not be suitable for all travellers. Please be aware that we do offer the 9 Day Nile Discovery trip, featuring a five-star Nile cruise ship. However, this trip must be booked in advance.
Breakfasts are included every day on most trips (except on the first morning). A typical breakfast may consist of cereals with milk or yoghurt, bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese and a range of spreads with fruit juice, tea or coffee to drink. It is rare to get a hot breakfast, though on some occasions there may be some hot food available as well.
Included evening meals are in local restaurants or your place of accommodation. In most cases table water is provided with the meals, and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense.
If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Customer Service Consultant when you book. However, please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.
Your included meals are detailed in the 'More Inclusions' section of this document.
Important note on 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.
