It depends on the number of participants whether you make this excursion in an airconditioned taxi, minibus or in a so-called Coaster (20-person bus), but you will always have your private driver and (if you choose to hire one) tour guide. We don’t like large, impersonal, groups, so you won’t find Nile Valley groups in a 50-person bus. Traveling to and/or from Aswan can also be done by train.
Included in this excursion:
- Transport by your own personal driver,
- Your hotel in Aswan,
- Your lunch on the first day..
- Entry Fees (as these tend to change often),
- Drinks during the excursion,
- Tips for driver and guide,
- personal expenses (such as souvenirs)
- An English-, German- or French speaking guide,
- A lunchbox.
The price for this excursion depends on the number of participants and the rates in Egypt at the moment of booking.
