Important Notes

1. Guides
Please note that you will have a different guide for the Jordan and Egypt sections of your trip. You will say goodbye to your Egyptian leader at the port in Nuweiba (Egyptian border) and your Jordanian leader will meet you on arrival at the port in Aqaba (Jordanian border) to assist you with Immigration and Customs procedures.

2. EXCURSION RECOMMENDATIONS
If you arrive a day or two early in Cairo and wish to do some excursions, we recommend that you wait until you get to the joining hotel and contact our local staff for more information on available tours and excursions. Tourists are frequently over-charged for excursions bought from vendors on the street or at the airport.

3. RAMADAN
According to the lunar cycle, Ramadan will fall between May 15th and June 14th, 2018. Please note that Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims throughout the world, during which time the followers of Islam should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. There may be some limitations to services and disruptions to schedules during Ramadan, but generally our tours still operate effectively during this period and food is available to non-Muslims throughout the day. It is very important to display increased cultural sensitivity during Ramadan. Please wear loose fitting clothes, that cover knees and shoulders, and try to avoid eating, drinking or smoking in public out of respect for those who can’t at that time.

4. MONEY
US Dollars that are series 1996 or earlier are not accepted and very difficult to change in regions of East and Southern Africa, as there are a lot of forgeries in circulation.

5. FELUCCAS ON THE NILE
Feluccas are very basic traditional Nile sailboats and make for an extremely relaxing and enjoyable way to travel down the river. You sleep on the deck of the boat (mattresses and blankets are provided, but if you prefer something between you and the blankets, you will need a sleep sheet/sleeping bag liner of your own). Please note that the Felucca itself does not have toilets or showers, however we will have access to a private support boat, travelling in close proximity to our Felucca. This support boat is equipped with toilets and a shower (please bring a towel) and an area to eat your meals, leaving you stress free to enjoy this tranquil and traditional experience on the Nile. Feluccas are traditional wind-driven sailing craft, and therefore subject to the unpredictability of wind, weather and river traffic conditions on the Nile. We will do our best to follow published itineraries, but they must be considered tentative in all cases. We reserve the right to modify or cancel any sailing itinerary as conditions warrant. In case of insufficient wind, weather danger or difficult river traffic conditions on the Nile or through the Nile locks, we reserve the right to transport passengers between some sites by motor vehicle on land, in order to be able to keep up with the itinerary.

6. HORSES IN PETRA
Please be advised that we do not in any way encourage travellers to ride horses in or out of the Petra siq. While this service is intended to be an initiative to help local Bedouin people and is included in the price of your entrance ticket, there have been numerous safety incidences on these horses and we do not believe it is a safe activity. If you do wish to ride a horse into or out of Petra, please be advised that this is at your own risk and we will ask you to sign off tour for the period of this ride.

7. ITINERARY CHANGES
Please note that sometimes groups visit the Citadel on Day 8 when you return to Cairo, however this isn’t always the case, so if you do want to visit the Citadel, we recommend you go on Day 1
