Make the most of your time away! Listed below are the optional activities that are available on this trip. Please note that you will need to book these prior to travel as we cannot always guarantee availability of these activities once you are on holiday.
|An aerial adventure awaits in Luxor! Imagine drifting silently over temples, ancient sites, ruins and villages in the early morning sun. See ancient Thebes from a different angle as you float above the River Nile and wave down at the locals as you drift a few metres from their open rooftops!|
|On our Jewel of the Nile, Family tours and many tailor-made itineraries we include the Sleeper Cabin Train as part of your journey. On all other tours (taking the Nefertiti Seater Train) we offer the option to upgrade to a sleeper cabin on the Sleeper train. Cabins are lockable, equipped with 2 bunk beds, linen, washbasin and towel, allowing passengers to relax and stretch out.|
|The World War II cemeteries of El Alamein. In 1942 the Allies under Britain’s field Marshal Montgomery halted the German- Italian advance towards the River Nile. Marked as a major victory for the Allies, though not without loss of life, with some 11,000 killed and 60,000 wounded. We visit the Commonwealth cemetery and recently erected memorials funded by the Australian and New Zealand governments. Through the arches and beyond the gardens, 7,000 white headstones commemorate the Australian, New Zealand and British soldiers who fought and died here.|

So thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hi On the Go,
I just returned from the Pharaoh's Adventure tour (June 4-9) and had a fabulous time! On the Go really went above and beyond and exceeded all my expectations. Our tour guide, Haytham Youssry was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, and accommodating. It was the little things that Haytham did that made us feel like valued customers - he purchased us water, ice-cream, and papyrus bookmarks, taught us the tricks on how to avoid the hustlers, and supported us in bargaining with the shop assistants. In addition, the ground support for the tour made everything for us so easy. We were taken to and greeted by an On the Go rep at the train station who also ensured our luggage was secured and taken to our bus, and we were guided through the airport and check in process with no hassle at all.
Thanks On the Go!
I wish I booked a longer trip. Everything was amazing .
