IF I Book a tour, will be travelling in a group, or will it be a private tour?

Unless stated otherwise, all our tours are “private tours” which include your own personal guide and driver. If your tour includes a Nile River cruise, this leg of your tour is not private, although you will have your own private cabin on board the cruise ship.

When is the best time to book a tour?

Tours can be booked all year round, although some people do find the heat a bit uncomfortable during hot summer months, from June to August. This is especially true if your itinerary includes spending time in the desert, in which case we recommend visiting during the cooler months of the year.
