Kola Nut Travel will be offering four travel programs to Egypt. Your journey will focus on Cairo, Upper, and Lower Egypt.  The four-night Nile cruise will depart from Luxor, stopping along the way in Upper and Lower Egypt, ending in Aswan.  In Aswan,  you will stay in a Nubian Village at a Guest House.   The rates are based on current pricing and are subject to change without notice.  Your Nubian guide will highlight the historical contributions of the Nubian Civilizations with the tour ending up in Aswan with two nights at a Nubian Village.  This tour does not include the cost of international flights.  You can arrange your air or we can arrange it for you.  Air from LAX, for example, will start at approximately $1100 round trip.  Kola Nut Travel is a full-service travel agency, and if you would like us to reserve your air, we will be more than happy to do so.  All travelers will be expected to arrive and depart at the same time in Egypt.  Domestic flights, within Egypt, are included in the pricing and arranged by Kola Nut Travel.   This tour program will be using Giza's newest hotel for all 2020 tours at the Helnan Dreamland Hotel.

Your hotel accommodations will range from 5 Star in Giza and on your Nile Cruise and a 2 Star Guest House owned by a Nubian Family in Aswan.   We have included pricing for single and double room arrangements.  We do not recommend triple rooms unless the third passenger is a child.

Please note that some excursions require some climbing and walking, it is not uncommon for the cruise ship not to have an elevator.  Please notify us in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangments if you require special assistance.
