Egypt will be awesome!

only other tour before that atarts on may 18th????
how are you going with visas? my travel agent says us Aussies only need a visa for Egypt, which can be bought on arrival, but I’m getting it before I go to save the hassle. My travel agent also said Aussies don’t need a visa for Turkey if we are staying less than 90days – has anyone else heard this? I just don’t wanna hold up the coach if I have to buy one at the border. <!--graemlin::rolleyes:-->
Do we need any vaccinations?
Can’t wait to get started!
yeah i spoke to my travel agent and she has told me (after checking with contiki) the only one i’ll need is into turkey and you can but it at the border?
i know they will unload the bus and luggage to search it at the border so we are going to have plenty of time to (few hrs maybe?) to purchase a visa.
Vaccinations? I have no idea?
Egypt will be awesome – race you to the Sphinx!!!
Sweet! Thanks Karlos, I didn’t realise they have to unload the bus, we should have heaps of time to buy one then. If more than 1 of us need a visa, all the better.
You definatley need a visa for Egypt if you want to race to the Sphinx lol! I applied for mine today, but you can purchase it on arrival for US$15 apparently.
yeah i’ve read it in a few travelogs that the border security is tight there. They aren’t part of the european union or something???
oh and join up to the facebook group ok, link here:
hey guys, who is going to be in london a few days earlier want to catch up in a pub or bar somewhere? bels is counting down the days now will be here before you know it!
yeah for sure that sounds like a plan.
I fly into heathrow at 5:15am! :/ on the fri 30th may. staying at the royal national the fri 30th and sat 31st then the tour leaves sun 1st June.
i’m all up for a bit of exploring and drinking, sounds good! <!--graemlin::D-->
two full days back in the national after the tour aswell.
2months and 3 weeks – ohh baby!
hey karl we arrive at heathrow at about 8 am friday the 30th and are stayin at the royal on the 30th and 31st and then for one night after the tour, after that we will find a backpackers accomodation if we stay in london any longer as the royal is fairly expensive and we have 3 weeks after tour that is unplanned at this stage.
how bout we organise to catch up with any other peeps on the tour on the friday/sat party nights?
