review 7 Oct 2006

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Hot air ballooning at sunrise, meeting the donkeys on landing to ride to the valley of the Kings & going into the tombs, all on the final day!! Cruising the Nile on Egypt adventure holiday

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

a) Do all the side trips, including the long trip to Abu Simbel (the early rise & long drive there & back are more than compensated by the temples) b) expect to be hastled constantly but join in with them sometimes, you'll get a good response back. c) the Egyptian people are warm & friendly & I never met any animosity towards us. d) try & get lots of small change, you'll need it for constant tipping!! e) take some hand cleansing gel, especially for the felucca trip!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

We all used local shops & restaurants that we wouldn't have on a cruise liner trip, as well as staying in the local hotels, etc. so I would expect the local economy to benefit & also traveling overnight on the trains will help. There was nothing I saw which I felt would impact on the environment.
