We have a friend who has been to Egypt 2 or 3 times and she suggested either of these two trips:
Beyond the Pyramids
Nile Valley & Red Sea
It looks like with the first you travel in feluccas for 2 days, whereas with the 2nd you travel on a cruise boat for 4. She said with the 2nd trip you spend a lot of time just travelling whereas with teh first you have more free time. She also said that Dahab is a city I must visit, which is only in the first.
There are many more comparisons. The first trip doesn't include entry fees, and you stay in simple hotels. The 2nd includes entry fees, and you stay in tourist hotels.
Can anyone offer advice on which to take? They are 15 and 16 day trips. I would like to know which is preferred: cruise or felucca, and if there is a major difference between simple and tourist hotels.
