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 the last two years ago, personally and for our group Yatra.
Once you have registered we will send you their contact for further arrangements.
We start the course on November 11th on the boat after lunch, time TBA.
You should arrive by the night before in Cairo in order to make an early morning flight on November 11th, unless your international flight lands early the morning of the 11th.
You will receive further information regarding flight times to Aswan once you register.
You will be welcomed at Cairo International Airport by an Egyliere Travel tour coordinator with a followed escort to your connection flight to Aswan, providing you arrange with them and not a different travel company.
For those of you who are arriving before November 11th, 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. You also can arrive a few nights early if you choose to.
When do I depart?
We check out from the hotel after breakfast by on November 22nd and you can transfer to Cairo Airport for final departure. We highly recommend you stay in Egypt a day or two longer to enjoy the markets and a little more of shopping or more sightseeing in Cairo. Egyliere travel can arrange all for you.
You will need a passport that is valid for 6 months after the end of your trip (May 22nd)
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 warm yet comfortable in Egypt in November. Average is around 75-77 degrees Farenheit (25 celsius) and cooler at night. Good for swimming at the pools at the hotels. 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.
All our meals on the boat are vegetarian. Once we get to the hotels there will be vegetarian options.
