There are so many chances to interact with the locals and experience a slice of contemporary Egyptian life. You and your family will dine with Nubian village folk in a house in Aswan
Sleep under the stars, feast on hearty cuisine and be dazzled by the riverside scenery on a felucca sailing trip down the Nile
The overnight train from Cairo to Aswan is a fun activity for the whole family, with comfortable sleeping quarters and good food – not to mention the thrill of waking up in an exciting new destination. Whilst bedding is supplied some families opt to bring their own sleep sheets
There is a fair amount of walking involved in exploring the pyramids, and it can get very hot in the summer. Be sure your family has appropriate clothing, sun protection and plenty of water to drink.
Evenings can get quite cool, so it's best to bring warm clothes too. Wearing layers is the best way to deal with the disparity in day and night temperatures.
Cruising down the Nile on a felucca is an amazing experience, but keep in mind that facilities will be basic. You'll sleep outside under the stars on a simple mattress. There is a nice clean toilet on board.
