Looks pretty good, a nile cruise, stay in luxor and then cairo to see the pyramids. I had seen this earlier for about 1100. I think there are a couple of extras but it still looks quite good its on Travelzoo's HOT DEALS if you don't subscribe then you probably wouldn't have seen it.

Sorry if this is rubbish but its my first post and it seemed amazing to me ?!

5* Cruise! Hehe. Don't think so! Prepare to be squished.

However, good price if you haven't done Egypt and Luxor/Valley of the Kings is amazing!

hot literally, though you are gonna be roastin on the selected date, we went in may and it was around 36-40 degrees everyday, luxor is awesome, nile cruise will be just out of this world, cairo is really really busy, enjoy, enjoy

Cairo and Luxor are both great.................FOR A DAY TRIP! Other than that I really wouldnt bother. Cairo is the most disgusting place I have ever had the displeasure of visiting and would never go back! If you want to go to Egypt do yourself a huge favour and stay in a nice hotel on the Red Sea and then take a day trip to Cairo/Luxor to see the Pyramids, Karnak Temple, Valley of the Kings etc etc.

So you won't be going to London, Manchester,Ireland, Spanish mainland, Majorca, Turkey etc etc etc.
Shame, you're prepared to miss out on some amazing places then. Hope you live somewhere totally immune from terrorism.

Luxor has so much more to offer than you could possibly see on a day trip. It's my favourite place & I wouldn't hesitate staying there for 2 weeks( which I regulary do). I have been all over the world including the Red Sea which I also love but it's a different type of holiday. As for Cairo, yes it's busy & dirty but it's a working city like London (though the traffic is much much worse in Cairo) amazing for a couple of days. We flew over from Luxor for a couple of days & the price of flights was very reasonable with egyptair. The Red Sea is not the real Egypt like Disney Orlando is not the real USA.

I can't comment on Luxor, however two years ago my wife and I went to Cairo, and was vowed we'd never go back again. Apart from having our taxi hijacked, caught up in a massive street brawl, trying to be sold crap art work and trinkets, having to ride upto the Pyramids on horses that only had minutes to live (and would be better off dead), and also kids being brutely whipped by the Tourist Police out on the sand dunes, the only positive thing I can say about Cairo is the internal flights are pure luxury compared to our poxy planes we have in england with zero leg room!

If you like chaos, no value on life, no morals, and the possibility of never being seen again or picking up a potentially life threating plague then please do go! Oh and for my troubles of going to Cairo, I caught Giardiasis Lamblia and was quarantined for 3 weeks when back in england...

On the whole a good time was had by all!!!

[SIZE="2"]This is a great deal for anyone wanting or needing someone else to do the planning for them. :thumbsup:

That's the positive aspect to this Deal, now for the whingers and whiners.

Well peeps, this has to be the most frivolous set of negative comments I have read in quite a while.:x

It seems you negative people must have visited a completely different Egypt from the one that I know and love (would have been there now, if it hadn't been for the BA strike) and would suggest that you return to the Costa Brava where you will be safe from most everything except alcoholic poisoning.

Have been visiting Egypt for several decades and have NEVER had any of the problems that you describe and I've travelled by every sort of transport available and met people from all strata of society, I don't speak the language but make an effort to and I find the Egyptians are a warm-hearted, friendly bunch and only change personality when they are touts trying to sell you something or are children after baksheesh (but that is largely the same the world over).

Basically, if you don't want to deal with conditions that don't match those that you enjoy in the place that you normally live, don't go and that will mean that I wont have to cross paths with whinging Brits in Egypt, India, Nepal, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria or any of the other places that have a different view on life and a less than Western European standard of living.[/SIZE]

The point I was trying to make is that as far as City breaks go Luxor and especially Cairo would be right down at the bottom of my list. Luxor is decent enough with some amazing things to see but 2 weeks? Sorry, no! For what it will cost there are much nicer Cities around the World, save your money and try somewhere like NY or my personal favourite.....Toronto!

The Red Sea as you say is a totally different type of holiday but it is the only type of holiday I would go back to Egypt for and this was what I was trying to convey to those who might see this deal as a bargain. As for "Real Egypt" I am afraid that if this equals Cairo then you can keep it!

Obviously everyone has an opinion, you have been to Cairo/Luxor and loved it and I am sure others on here will feel the exact same as you but I think it is only right that people who have not been before and are considering this deal get given as much info as possible!

Im sorry for "whinging" as you put it but all your post does is back up what I have said in my previous posts. If you as a holidaymaker are happy to go somewhere that has a standard of living that is well below that you are accustomed to then fine but some of us are not!

You state that the locals attitude only changes when they are trying to sell you something, you should have taken this a little further and added "unfortunately they try this on every street corner"!

You also fail to mention that if you are an attractive young lady or a gentleman who will be accompanied by an attractive young lady then Egypt is not the place for you as you will be hassled constantly. I had only just reached my hotel when the 2 locals carrying my bags to my room were asking for photos of my girlfriend because she was in their words "a princess"! We then had 2 weeks of similar comments!

As for your Costa Brava comment, I ahve never been there but if someone gave me the ultimateum "Costa Brava or Cairo" it would be a simple decision!

Went to Egypt last year - including most of the components of this deal. Best holiday we have ever had.

Looking to book a holiday to Luxor and Cairo. Not particularly interested in a cruise, which I find boring. If anyone has any pointers, would be appreciated.

I went on a cruise break on the Nile for a week and then to the red sea for a week and the cruise was hardly boring. We had many stops and scheduled trips out and about to all the sights. We were waited on hand and foot. Really enjoyed the 2 weeks we had there!

Have to agree.
Great for the first couple of days but Egypt is a dirty place, you have to tip for EVERYTHING.
We even got asked to buy stuff from a guy in a boat banging on our cruise ship window at 3am! They are poor, the people who visit are rich(er) - do the maths as to what type of time your going to have!

Also don't go if you don't want to be blown up or pulled out of a coach and shot.
Our guide took some joy in showing us the spot that a group of German tourists had been shot by the side of their coach, which was nice.....

Six months after we got back from our trip, there was also the massacre at Queen Hatshepsut's temple (I stood in the very place that these poor people lost their lives - even then there were armed police everywhere)

I'm not scare mongering here, just be sure you have your body armour on before you go.

And as for the flippant comment that those who don't like Egypt must be alcoholics in Costa Brava, I simply like to go to places were coming home is more than a 50/50 chance.

I have never been to the Costa Brava (or any of the other places your extremist mind is telling you to mention) so get your facts right before you suggest those who don't enjoy being killed on holiday must be boozed up Brits aboard.

You must have travelled long ago as the massacre at Queen Hetshepsuts temple was long ago and before the tourist police were introduced.

People quite happily holiday in Northern Ireland now with no fear of the IRA - although things are by no means peacfull there - times change;

By all means people should consider the risks but silly talk of body armour is ridiculous and no matter how you protest IS scaremongering.

My limited experience of Egypt was only positive the people I found to be genuinely friendly more honestly so than most european holidays.

I travelled with three very attractive ladies (my wife and two daughters - 16 and 14 at the time) - yes there were repeated offers of camels and proposals of marriage and and an entire school party (about 200 teenage girls) insisted on photos with my eldest daughter (facinated by her hair and far from conservative dress); but (apart from the school party) that was not much different than recent holidays in Greece, Turkey, Spain or Italy.

I personally have in all my years managed to get out to visit Spain, and at this point in my life have now have no desire to go there, and see the usual tourist spots (although that's nothing against the Spanish as I here there are some very nice parts). I also seldom drink to excess or use it as my primary motive for a holiday.

As for Cairo, yes there will be vast differences and don't expect anybody would expect the same kind of conditions as a western city, but just like any part of the world that a person travels too, you should expect a reasonable amount of safety, which unfortunately we didn't there. We are well travelled and have actually been to other parts of Egypt, including El Gouna and Taba which I would both recommend to anyone for different reasons.

Late 90's.
Oh, and now they have 'tourist police'? I feel a lot safer.
Do the terrorists know they aren't allowed to kill people now because of the 'tourist police'.

I'm afraid the 'tourist police' (of any kind) won't be able to repress a systematic hatred for anything other a muslim way of life. I witnessed european women being spat on in the street because they chose to wear less clothes that what they maybe should have done (in a 40 degree heat I didn't blame them).

So it's up to the individual I guess. If you want to be one in a long line of people being forced onto a conveyer built and shuffled round these historic monuments whilst being constantly pestered for cash and tips from underprivileged kids then go for it.

Having been there, I'd rather sit in front on the History channel to get my fill of Egypt. in future.

You seem a little OTT on this with your "systematic hatred" comments etc. - but as you say it's up to the individual.

In my experience and (most others reading the comments) tourists are not made aware of any hatred of westerners in Egypt and I very much doubt it exists except for an extemist minority. Yes you will be pestered almost constantly by beggars / street vendors, yes women (and even men) dressed (in their eyes) as someone with loose morals will receive unwanted male attention and may be reviled or ignored by others and yes outside of the tourist resorts you'll see extreme poverty.

Awesome - that's amazing. Was that all included in the package or did you have to pay extra for these experiences. Where can I book this one?
