My friend and I are planning to go on the Nile Valley and Red Sea excursion at the end of Feb. The tour offers a free day to visit Abu Simbel from Aswan. I read in earlier postings that this should be done through personal travel agents, who can book flight tickets. My confusion however lies in the fact that while I am flying from Bombay, India, my friend will be joining me in Cairo from London, England. We are to meet and take the tour together starting in Cairo. Does this mean we must co-ordinate the date of the free day in Aswan and ask our individual travel agents to book us separately (but on the same flight) to Abu Simbel? It would involve a lot of planning and co-ordination from both our ends... Isn't there a simpler way to do this? Perhaps get to Cairo and have an Egyptian travel agent book both of us on an internal flight from Aswan to Abu Simbel? This is a matter of some confusion to me, and I would appreciate any kind of facts, or advice on this!
