[ACCOMMODATION]

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.

Felucca sailboats

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.

Meals

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.

Your Topdeck crew never expect tips themselves and will not ask for any; that’s not what friends do! We also know how much tipping can cost you. So go ahead, spoil yourself with the money you will save by travelling with Topdeck (just don’t forget Mum’s souvenir).

Our travel app has landed! With a range of awesome features including a Currency Converter, Budget Tracker, Check-In tool and Social Timeline you can plan your trip like a pro. Think of it like your very own Topdeck Trip Leader, always on call with the latest info, weather, maps and city guides to give you the trip of a lifetime, all in the palm of your hand.

Please note: The Topdeck Travel App should only be downloaded once you have booked onto your trip. You will not be able to log in unless you have a Topdeck Booking Reference Number.

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:

When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated.

In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.

It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
