Note: It may be necessary to amend the itinerary due to prevailing local circumstances. We will endeavour to provide you with as much notice as possible. As so many sites are visited, a Nile Cruise may not be suitable for the very elderly, people with walking difficulties or children. Please note that some excursions may take place very early in the morning. Optional excursions shown may be available to pre-book, and where a tour is capacity controlled and participants are limited it may be advisable to do so. All tours/activities/excursions are operated by local, independent suppliers and your contract will not be with us, but with them, subject to their terms and conditions. When booked locally we are not responsible for the availability, operation, or any risks that may be involved with these tours/activities/excursions.
