We finally selected the perfect itinerary for all we want to see and do in Egypt this October: the Sailtrek & Sinai tour. We understand that this is an Adventurer class tour, but would like to upgrade some of the accomodations along the way if possible. While these are not "make or break" issues with us (we're happy to go low-budget and will love every minute of it!), we're just curious as to what could be available.
So, before we purchase, we have some questions:
Can we upgrade the two overnight train trips from seating to sleepers?
Can we upgrade hotels in the cities (Cairo, Luxor, Aswan)?
Can we upgrade the sailing from the felucca to the AMY? If we cannot upgrade the sailing, how cold does it get at night on the felucca (we don't want to overpack and tote around heavy sleeping bags the whole trip, but we don't want to underpack either!)?
Is an optional excusion to Lake Nassar and Philae available while we're in Aswan?
Will our guide be able to help us make excursion arrangements in the various locales? For example, we want to rent bikes and ride to Karnak in Luxor.
We've heard many good things about Imaginative Traveller and can't wait to take our FIRST EVER international trip together (we're in the US and mostly go camping, snowboarding, or visiting relatives) -- this is so very exciting!
Very kind regards, and we look forward to hearing from IT and its travellers --
