Nile Cruise - Oct 17

Hiya,

I was wondering if anyone else who is doing the Nile Cruise trip in October, was planning on doing any of the optional extras? In particular, the trip to Abu Simbel......any advice on whether to fly or go by road?

Thanks!!! :)

Hi Sarah, I'm Catriona.   I  was swithering about whether to make the trip to Abu Simbel, but two sets of friends who have been have said it is totally worth it,  so I definitely want to go.   Both flew and said the plane was tiny, which doesn't thrill me, but it was quick.   I dont' know anyone who's been by road.

As for the other optionals, I am sure I will do some / a lot of them, as I want to make the most of the trip.   I guess my plan was to play it by ear and take the advise of the guide as to what's worth it and what isn't.   Can't wait  to find out! 

Look forward to meeting you next week.  

Hi Catriona. From advise from friends of mine they are saying flying is better, so I am angling towards that option at the moment. 

I am in the same attitude about optional extras, I think I will do as many as I can as i doubt I will ever get the chance to do this trip again, so make the most of it!

Now its just a case of packing!!!! Look forward to meeting you on Saturday :)

Hi! Would also lI’ve to go to Abu Simbal. Am torn between going there by plane as it’s so quick, and going by road to add to the sense of adventure and see more of the area. I thought I’d make up my mind after chatting to others and of course the guide.

Just read that the visa is 25 US dollars and they’re not keen on accepting sterling.

Really looking forward to this trip  - been wanting to go for ages!
