Comments: We are 2 middle age men who are planning a trip to Egypt 3/01/2014
Returning to Brisbane on the 16/01/2014
We are from Brisbane, Australia and are having Christmas in London in 2013 then flying to Cairo via Istanbul.
We would like to experience the "real" Egypt as well as the usual tourist sights, a boat trip [deluxe+]and overnight train. we would like also to go to Abul Simbul.
We also would like to see the Commonwealth war graves at Alamain and go to Jordan mainly to see the Dead Sea and Petra but other sights as available.
We do not like to be herded with a lot of other tourists and rushed from sight to sight and we like to be off the beaten track seeing the country and how the people live. Private car.
We like special boutique/ Heritage hotels [5 star]. We both HATE to be taken to buy goods at inflated prices, we would much prefer to see the sights. We are not shoppers !We are NOT interested in riding camels or horses.
I would welcome some suggestions from you with regards to a tour we may take with your company with PRICES please. I am presuming it would be a "work in progress' until we make a final decision and pay a deposit.
We have both traveled extensively, but neither of us have been to Egypt so we are looking forward to it very much.
Again I look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.
