I am doing the Nile and Sinai tour which departs Cairo on 30th July 2006.
I am travelling alone so I was hoping to start talking to some other people who will be doing this tour before I head over.
Also, I would like some advice from people who have been to Egypt before. The dossier's all suggest that a backpack is the best luggage to travel with. I am against this as I will be away for 9 weeks in total (only 2 in Egypt) and have been told by other travellers that a suitcase is easier for Europe.
Is it a big drama taking a suitcase through Egypt? Would there be many occasions on this tour when I would have to carry my bag for much longer than from the hotel to the bus etc?
Hope to hear from you soon.
