If you have confirmed a booking on any Products with more than one client named and booked on such booking, you shall be deemed to have accepted these Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) on behalf of all clients named in the booking (including minors and those under a disability) and travelling on or otherwise participating in any Products (hereinafter “you”, the “Client(s)”), and by such travel or participation all passengers indicate their assent to these Terms. The client who confirmed the booking is deemed to be the designated contact person for all other clients named in such booking. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the Client and YET concerning the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, representations and understandings of the parties, written or oral.
A booking is confirmed and these Terms shall apply when YET, or an authorized agent acting on YET’s behalf, has received the applicable deposit from the Client and the Client has received written confirmation from YET of such booking. The Client confirming the booking must be no less than 18 years of age and agrees to provide full, complete, and accurate information as requested by YET to confirm such booking.
Any Client confirming a booking on any Products with more than one Client named and booked on such booking represents and warrants to YET that:
i) they have all requisite consents and authority to make such booking on behalf of all other Clients named on the booking and have communicated all necessary information to the other Clients for them to give free and fully informed authorization to do so.

iii) they will inform all other named Clients on the relevant booking of the applicability of these Terms to the booking and the Clients’ relationship with YET.
At any time before a booking is confirmed, YET reserves the right to increase or decrease brochure prices of any Products. YET or their agents reserve the right to decline any booking, at their sole discretion.
All Clients should consult their physician regarding their fitness for travel. YET encourages all Clients to seek their physician’s advice regarding necessary or advisable vaccinations, medical precautions, or other medical concerns regarding the entirety of the Client’s travel with YET.
YET does not provide medical advice. Clients must notify YET in writing before the due date of their final payment for their booking of any medical conditions, pregnancy, disability, or any other mental and or physical condition which may impact the Client’s fitness to travel, and/or any continuing medical condition. Full disclosure of such information is a condition of traveling on any Product or in any capacity with YET.
Certain Products may not be suitable for all people due to restrictions posed by limitations in mobility, physical or cognitive disability, pregnancy, or various other physical or mental conditions. It is the Client’s responsibility to assess the risks and requirements of each Product in light of such Client’s limitations, physical and mental fitness and condition, and any medical requirements or issues of such Client.
YET may refuse to carry pregnant women over 24 weeks or Clients with certain conditions, if suitable accommodation or alternate Products or services cannot be arranged. Certain Tours, as offered by YET, by its nature involve visiting remote or less developed regions, where medical facilities may not meet the standards of those found in a Client’s home country.
YET will endeavor to accommodate the special requests of Clients, such as dietary and accommodation requests, but such requests do not form part of these Terms or the contract between Client and YET, and YET is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.
Travel with YET may involve visiting remote or developing regions, where medical care may not be easily accessible and medical facilities may not meet the standards of those found in your home country. The condition of medical facilities in the countries you may visit on your Tour varies and YET makes no representations and gives no warranties about the availability or standard of medical facilities in those regions.
Any special requirements must be disclosed to the Tour Operator at the time of booking. The Tour Operator will use reasonable efforts to accommodate special requirements or requests but this is not always possible given the nature of the destinations visited and the availability of options outside a planned itinerary. Certain activities may be inaccessible to you if your mobility is limited in any way.
All food allergies and dietary restrictions must be disclosed to the Tour Operator at the time of booking but the Tour Operator cannot guarantee that dietary needs or restrictions can be accommodated. Any special requests or requirements do not form part of these Terms or the contract between you and the Tour Operator and the Tour Operator is not liable for any failure to accommodate or fulfill such requests.
Clients aged 18 at the date of travel are deemed to be adults. Anyone under the age of 18 on the date of travel is considered to be a minor. Minors must always be accompanied by an adult. One adult may accompany up to two minors. Unless otherwise indicated in the Tour description or by the Tour Operator, the minimum age for minors traveling on any Tour vary based on the tour style.
All bookings with a minor are subject to review and approval by YET. If the consent of a parent, guardian or any other person is required by applicable law for any minor to travel, the accompanying adult is responsible for securing all consents, and documentation and ensuring that they and the minor(s) meet all legal requirements to travel, to enter into and depart from applicable countries and regions. The Tour Operator will not be responsible for any fees, damages, or losses incurred as a result of any failure to secure necessary consents, permits, and approvals.
YET reserves the right to restrict the number of Minor Clients on any given Product where it deems necessary. If the adult accompanying a Minor Client is not the Minor Client’s custodial parent or legal guardian, then a "Parental Consent Guardianship Form" must be signed (along with other documents provided as requested by YET) by the Minor Client’s parent or legal guardian and must be received by YET along with or before the final payment made in respect of the Minor Client’s booking.
Each adult on a booking with a minor or minor(s) is jointly and severally responsible for the behavior, wellbeing, supervision, and monitoring of such minor(s), and jointly and severally accepts these Terms for and on behalf of any minor(s) on their booking, including all assumptions of risk and limitations of liability. The Tour Operator does not provide care services for minors and expressly disclaims any responsibility for chaperoning or controlling any minor(s).
YET Products are available for purchase using several global currencies including, but not limited to (Euro (EUR€) or United States Dollar (USD$)). The currency applied to the Client’s booking will be determined by YET, in consideration of the booking location of the Client. The Client will be advised of the applicable currency before making any payment to YET.
YET may provide a feature through which Client (s) may view Payment for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Payment are for informational purposes only and are not the official Payment for the Listings. If you (as a Traveler) request a booking, you will be charged with the amount of Payment in United States dollars (USD$), if your booking is confirmed. The currency in which you will be charged may be determined by YET based on the payment method you select. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by YET to receive payment, YET will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that YET has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the "Applicable Exchange Rate"). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although YET would update the Applicable Exchange Rate regularly, it would not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, YET would retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate.
The published price of the Tour and any products or services offered by YET is subject to change at any time, before or after booking confirmation, up to 30 days before departure. Tours are priced and advertised exclusive of applicable sales taxes. After a confirmation invoice has been issued by YET, YET reserves the right to impose surcharges on any products or services booked for reasons arising from increases in transportation costs, fuel costs, dues, taxes, or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airport charges, local operator costs, currency and exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes, or government action which impacts the price of the applicable products or services provided.
Where the increase the original price of the applicable products or services (excluding add-ons, insurance, and taxes), you may choose to either:
You must notify YET of your choice within 14 days of receipt of notice of the increase or you will be deemed to have accepted the price change and will be liable for payment of the increase.
From time to time YET may offer reduced pricing on certain products or services. The reduced pricing applies only to new bookings. Bookings, where payment of at least a deposit has been received by YET, are not entitled to the reduced pricing.
The prices of Products advertised in YET brochures and on the YET website are based on costs in effect at the time of printing the brochure or posting to the website. YET reserves the right to alter the prices of any Product at any time before the receipt of payment in full for such Product. All dates, itineraries, and prices are indicative only and the price quoted at the time of Booking shall be the applicable price, subject to the surcharges that may be levied by these Terms.
Changes, revisions, or other amendments may be made to the particulars contained in any YET brochure or on the YET website before a contract is concluded, and such changes, revisions, or amendments shall be incorporated herein as of the date of such amendment.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for keeping up to date on the specific details of your Tour and any other products or services, including, but not limited to checking YET’s website at least 72 hours before departure as minor changes may have been made after the time of booking.

YET will collect the deposit and/or the total cost at the time of booking confirmation. The Balance of Payment (defined as the Total Cost minus the deposit) will be payable directly based on the Payment Terms as stated by YET on the booking page.
The deposit displayed on the booking reference page is generally based on YET Terms as outlined on the booking reference page. Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Tour Cost.
If you cancel your booking, and that cancellation is not a result of nonpayment or any other breach of these Terms, the deposit amount will be held as a “Lifetime Deposit” with YET, subject to these Terms. Lifetime Deposits have no expiry and may be applied towards payment of a deposit on any other Tour offered by YET. The Lifetime Deposit is transferable and may be transferred by you to another individual of your choosing by providing notice to the Tour Operator in writing.
For the avoidance of doubt, only the deposit amount will form part of the Lifetime Deposit. The Lifetime Deposit has no cash value. Only one Lifetime Deposit may be applied per person per product booked. A Lifetime Deposit must be applied to a new Tour booking that is of equal or greater value to the canceled Tour for which the Lifetime Deposit was originally received. A Lifetime Deposit may not be applied to the same or similar dates of travel.

The cost of a tour of Egypt can vary significantly depending on a number of factors such as the length of the tour, the time of year you go, the type of accommodation you prefer, and the mode of transportation you choose. Some tours may be as inexpensive as $500 per person for a budget group tour, while others can cost $5000 or more for a luxury private tour.

Don't drink the tap water - it is highly chlorinated. However, with enough time in Egypt, you could potentially grow accustomed to the water. This doesn't mean that the tap water is polluted, it simply means that you are not used to it, and you might get stomach problems. This happened to most people when they visit a country for the first time. They were simply not used to water there. It's a similar situation here. It is advisable to drink Bottled water during your entire holiday. That is why it is strongly advisable that you don't drink the tap water, and use it only for washing and brushing your teeth.
Enjoy Egypt Tours From September until March. It is the perfect time when the weather is good and mild. From September until mid-November, when it is very nice and the temperatures are pleasant for all activities - around 25 C to 15 C. mid-Nov until the end of February is wintertime when temperatures during the day are around 12 or 15 C, and at night can drop to about 7 or 8 C. In March and April, the weather is still so nice and travelers can enjoy the Easter vacation.
From May to September is the summer season. Spending summertime in a desert climate does not appeal to most travelers. Average daytime temperatures hover in the high 80s and low to mid-90s, although they can jump up into three digits in the South as in Luxor and Aswan. Summer is really hot here, prices go down and it is a good chance for travelers with a tight budget.
The weather in Egypt is generally warm and dry, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. The country is located in the northern hemisphere and its climate is influenced by its location in the tropics and its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea.
In the summer, temperatures can reach up to 40°C (104°F) or higher, especially in the desert areas of the country. The humidity is also quite low, which makes the heat more bearable.
In the winter, the weather is mild, with temperatures ranging from 15°C (59°F) to 25°C (77°F). The humidity is higher during the winter months, and there is also a chance of rain, especially in the coastal areas.
Overall, the best time to visit Egypt is from October to April, when the weather is cooler and more comfortable.
Safety and security are our first and foremost concerns! Egypt is a very safe country with a low crime rate. Now with the coronavirus outbreak, accommodations and sightseeing nationwide have finalized sterilization and disinfection in light of the Egyptian government's efforts to implement precautionary measures against the COVID-19. In addition, our company has followed the same procedures to make all our staff, guides, and drivers are well-trained with the current events to prevent and stop the spread of this outbreak. Traveling the world is a joyful experience and we want to do our part to keep the anticipation stress-free.
There are many interesting and exciting things to do in Egypt. Some popular activities include:
Visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza: The pyramids are one of the most famous landmarks in Egypt and a must-see for any visitor.
Exploring the ancient city of Luxor: Luxor is home to several important ancient Egyptian sites, including the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings.
Cruising down the Nile: A cruise down the Nile River is a great way to see the country and visit some of the smaller towns and villages along the way.
Visiting the Abu Simbel temples: These temples are located in southern Egypt and are known for their impressive size and intricate carvings.
Going on a desert safari: Egypt has a large desert region, and going on a safari is a great way to experience the unique landscape and culture of the area.
Visiting Cairo: Cairo is the capital of Egypt and is home to many interesting museums, markets, and other cultural attractions.
Snorkeling or diving in the Red Sea: The Red Sea is known for its clear waters and abundant marine life, making it a popular destination for snorkeling and diving.
Visiting the Siwa Oasis: The Siwa Oasis is a beautiful desert oasis located in western Egypt. It's a great place to relax and escape the heat of the desert.
The high season for tourism is all year with winter and spring being peak season for cultural travels with lots of sightseeing. Weather in Egypt is perfect for many kinds of tourism, and if coming in June, July, and August, head for the seaside resorts. Those months are very warm with temperatures that can reach around 45C. and the humidity is about 70 to 80%, but it is bearable with the sea and large swimming pools nearby.
So the period of the high summer season is also a bit busy as hotels fill up with tourists from all over the world looking for a bargain, lots of sunshine, diving, snorkeling, etc. It is also a primary vacation time in Europe. If you come in the deep summer season you can still enjoy it because you can always sightsee early in the morning and go again at night when the sunsets. You will definitely need good sunscreen and a lot of liquids to drink with a nice hat on your head. Summer is a good time for people looking for good rates in accommodation and other services.
Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it’s really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.
You can get your visa when you arrive at Cairo Airport. It is an easy process for USA, UK, Canadian, Australian and European citizens. The visa is simply a stamp (like a mail or postage stamp) that you buy from the visa office, at the port of entry just before the immigration booth. The visa will cost you $25 US Dollars and after buying it; you just stick it on any empty page on your passport. Once you have bought your visa you then stand in line to get your passport stamped by the immigration officer. You can also apply for E-Visa via the official electronic visa portal: www.visa2egypt.gov.eg
Egypt has many historical sites that you can visit and enjoy. Each tour is different and unique. If you go on a Nile cruise, you can visit Abu Simbel, Aswan, and Luxor in the South and enjoy the temples, tombs, and the treasures of the Nile. In the North, enjoy the Pyramids of Giza, The Egyptian Museum, Sakkara. Mosques, churches in Cairo, and many landmarks located in the city of Alexandria. On the East, Enjoy a beach tour for diving, snorkeling, and swimming in the Red sea. Every city has its charm, history, and flavor where you can do many tours and activities.
The amount of time you will need to spend in Egypt depends on your interests and the specific activities you want to do while you are there. Here are some factors to consider when determining how many days you should spend in Egypt:
What you want to see: Egypt has a lot of cultural and historical attractions, and the more you want to see, the more time you will need. For example, if you want to visit the Great Pyramids of Giza and the other ancient sites in the Cairo area, you may want to spend at least a few days in the city. If you also want to visit Luxor and the Nile Valley, you will need even more time.
Your travel style: If you prefer to take things at a slower pace and spend more time exploring each place in depth, you will need more time in Egypt. On the other hand, if you like to pack a lot of activities into each day and move quickly from place to place, you may be able to see a lot in a shorter amount of time.
Your budget: The longer you stay in Egypt, the more it will cost. If you have a limited budget, you may need to be more selective about what you see and do, and plan your trip accordingly.
As a general rule, I would recommend at least a week in Egypt to get a good sense of the country and see some of the major attractions. If you have more time, you can explore more of the country and see some of the smaller towns and villages as well.
There are many companies that offer Nile River cruises in Egypt, and the best one for you will depend on your specific preferences and needs. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a Nile River cruise:
Length of the cruise: Nile River cruises range from a few days to a week or more. Consider how much time you have available and what you want to see on your trip.
Type of vessel: Nile River cruises are offered on a variety of vessels, including traditional feluccas, modern riverboats, and luxury cruise ships. Choose the type of vessel that best fits your budget and desired level of comfort.
Itinerary: Different Nile River cruises have different itineraries, with some focusing on ancient sites and others on more modern attractions. Consider what you want to see and do on your trip and choose a cruise that matches your interests.
Price: Nile River cruises vary in price, and you should choose one that fits your budget. Keep in mind that you may be able to find discounts or special offers if you book in advance or travel during the low season.
It can be helpful to compare the features and prices of several different Nile River cruises before making a decision.

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
