    stop doing that, you cant expect someone to reply within an hour.
    if you look at it, a guide isnt included for lots of it, it seems to be mostly hotel and travel costs. and the overnight train you might just have a seat, not a bed.
    i wouldnt say its too good to be true but it will probably be very basic.

    Seems very good to me, even bearing in mind that's just the cost of the tour - it says that these are not included;
    * Entrance fees
    * Flights (airfare), visas and insurance
    * Extra meals, snacks and drinks
    * Tips and any tour specifics not stated in the itinerary

    Why wouldn't it be real? As the post above states, flights, entrance fees, meals etc are not included.

    Hostels are £5 per night approx (and probably even cheaper with in-house deals) for example. It's not a bad price actually for a "package".

    Well, it sure isn't going to be luxurious if the accomodation is only that amount.

    Not at all. Egypt is pretty cheap. I've never heard of the Canadian hostel tbh so I wouldn't expect anything luxurious if I were you.

    Thats your usual fare out there. I got offered a similar tour for $200, so a bit cheaper. It just seems cheap because western tourist agencies charge a fortune. These agencies provide insurance, often better accommodation and transport, and much better guides though, so really you get what you pay for.

    Sounds like a very good deal tbh. Ok your air fares etc are not included, but its still good and something I would love to do one day.

    Yes but air fares, return are £180 in July. Spenders an extra £250. So for £600 it sounds brilliant
