Personal tips

** B.B means we will have Breakfast only inside the hotel

** H.B means that we will have 2 meals inside the hotel, breakfast & Dinner. But lunch will be at the site

** F.B means that we will have the 3 meals inside the hotel or Nile Cruise

** We will have7 nights aboard the Cruise (Luxor / Aswan & Aswan / Luxor) so we will stop twice at Kom-Ombo and Edfu but we will visit each site only one time. I can’t promise to stop at Esna but if I have a chance I will do it.
