    The biggest 2 differences is the style of tour. The UE is a budget tour, meaning you’ll be staying at campsites and in hostels as opposed to hotels. There are several discussing about the differences. The other question is do you want to do the UE with the Egypt option – obviously not an option on the Explorer.

    that’s true however i did change my tour to the UE and yes i do stay in both hostels and hotels at times but not campsites, as writtin in the itinerary. On the contrary the UE is more expensive then the explorer by over $800 funny enough.
