1. Nile & Beyond has a trek in the desert on days 12, 13, and 14. This occurs on March 7, 8, and 9 for the Tour that starts Feb 24 in Cairo.
2. Since March is after the winter schedule ( Dec - Feb ) I certainly trust that the trek follows the full Summer schedule and not the abbreviated short stroll in the desert. This trek appears to me as one of the highlights of the tour and is the reason why I selected this tour.
3. I suppose these are the alternatives: [a] the full trek summer route already established ( yeah! ) [b] the group leader shall decide at the time depending upon actual weather conditions on those dates [c] the winter schedule shall prevail even with clement weather.
4. As an aside, I am solo at the Indiana available on the morning of Feb 23 to join other Feb 24 tour members for a preview of Cairo in such places as major museums.
