Egylière Travel is a privately-owned luxury travel agency based in Cairo, Egypt. Egylière Travel will take care of all our logistical needs for our Yatra. We selected Egylière because of their excellent and trustworthy services during Siri Sat's travel last April.
Once you have registered we will send you their contact for further arrangements.
We start the course on March 31st on the boat after lunch, time TBA.
You should arrive by the morning of the March 31st (or before) in Cairo in order to make a connection to Luxor. The group will be on an afternoon flight at 14:30 in Cairo.
You will receive further information regarding flight times to Luxor once you register.
You will be welcomed at Cairo International Airport by an Egyliere Travel tour coordinator who followed escort to your connection flight to Luxor.
For those of you who are arriving before March 31st, Egyliere Travel will welcome you at the airport and can arrange your hotel stay and airport transfer round trip for one night additional in Cairo in one reasonable rate. You will have to coordinate with them.
When do I depart?
We check out from the hotel after breakfast by on April 11th and transfer to Cairo Airport for final departure. If you would like to stay in Egypt longer you can arrange more travel with Egyliere.
You will need a passport that is valid for 6 months after the end of your trip (August 26, 2018).
You need a visa to travel in Egypt, but Egyliere Travel will handle that for you as it is retrieved at the airport. The fee is $28 USD per visa and can be paid to Egyliere upon arrival or beforehand. They will need all of your information in advance to prepare it.
Will I get sea sick?
The water of the Nile is not rough at all, but very smooth. Also the boats are wide and do not rock or sway, so sea sickness normally does not occur to those who are sensitive. Siri Sat went last April and tends to get sea sick and was fine. If concerned perhaps bring some extra seasick natural medicine.
It will be hot in Egypt In April. Good for swimming at the pools at the hotels. It can get very hot elsewhere. Please check the weather before leaving. You will need sunscreen, a sun visor or hat and to stay hydrated.
What to Wear in Egypt
Our modest yogi clothes usually does the job! When we are on our boat or at the hotels we can wear whatever we want, including shorts. When we go out, it is important for women to not expose their shoulders or knees. Most people who travel with wear slacks or capri pants and short sleeved t-shirts (as long as they cover the upper arm). Shorts are not appropriate in public places for either men or women. It is not necessary for women to wear a head scarf in public. Good walking shoes and a hat or sun visor are a must. Bring a swimming suit for the hotels (our pool in Cairo has the most incredible view of the Pyramids!)
All our meals on the boat are vegetarian. Once we get to the hotels there will be vegetarian options.
