What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Very Different Cultural Immersion

Each Vantage Adventure is designed to help you fully experience local culture and to get out and explore while keeping active. We find these are the two most fulfilling and rewarding ways to transform any trip into an adventure, and into the experience of a lifetime. To that end, we’ve rated each trip to indicate the level of cultural immersion and physical activity, with “1” being the lowest and “3” being the highest. 

PACING

  • This trip is moderately-paced
  • You will visit 7 destinations in 14 nights, with 4 nights in Cairo in a centrally located hotel before your cruise, two nights in Alexandria after your cruise, and a final night in Cairo’s Heliopolis neighborhood, closer to the airport. In addition to embarkation and disembarkation in Luxor, you’ll visit 3 distinct ports of call during your 7-night cruise. 
  • There are two internal flights (from Cairo to Luxor and back). 

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

  • This trip is moderately-paced and not wheelchair-friendly
  • You must be able to walk 2-3 miles unassisted in order to fully experience every destination, such as exploring Old Cairo and the archaeological sites at Luxor and elsewhere
  • Entering tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens may involve descending a narrow, somewhat steep walkway at a crouch, and may not be comfortable for some. Sightseeing focuses on guided walking tours at various sites around Cairo and at archaeological sites along the Nile River
  • The m/s Nebu does not have an elevator and the ship and the tours are not suitable for wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy for further information

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION

  • You will spend 7 nights aboard a deluxe Nile river ship
  • Steps and cobblestones are to be expected, as well as occasional steep and/or uneven terrain
  • At most ports of call, the m/s Nebu will dock at the pier so that you can walk from ship ramp to shore. Occasionally, side-by-side docking will be necessary along the Nile, so you will be required to walk through another cruise ship to reach the shore

CLIMATE

February is a fabulous time to visit Egypt, as temperatures are mild and pleasant. Be prepared for warm temperatures and bright sun, with daily average temperatures of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Nights will be noticeably cooler than the daytime.

Since the weather is unpredictable, please check weather sites online for 10-day forecasts closer to your departure date to plan your packing accordingly.
