    Hubby and I are booked as well. We’re both 31, flying in from Chicago on 11/26. Thought we’d take a day to see Alexandria before the tour begins. We can’t wait!

    Hi Brenda,
    WoW Chicago, I love the states, have not made it to Chicago yet though.

    Im so excited, Im 24 from Gold Coast Australia. I am going to do a day trip of Alexandria the day before, I think Ill book it right before I leave.

    Hoping to have my trip all booked up by this weekend. Flying in from Louisiana and thinking about either going early or staying late. Have either of you traveled with Contiki before? This will be my second trip with them, and I have taken another trip to visit contiki friends in Australia and New Zealand. Should be a great time.

    Hi David,

    First trip with Contiki, will be doing a second one a few weeks after this one through Europe with a friend, will be going on my own for this one, getting to Cairo 2 days before planning on a day trip to Alexandria the day before contiki starts as I fly to Holland the day the trip ends…. SO excited! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> are you travelling alone?

    Good news! We have “Definite departure” status – an agent confirmed today! Hope to see more people on this forum before we fly. Can’t wait. November will be here before we know it!

    Jamie Lee, did you book your Alexandria trip already? I am emailing a company called Egypt Excursions to set up a day trip on Friday, 11/27. I will post details, pricing, etc., when I hear back in case you or David or anyone else wants to join us. The more, the merrier!

    HI Brenda, I have not booked Alexandria yet, if you could send me the info that would be great! The countdown has begun!!

    What is everyone planning for 11/28 ? It looks like it will be a free day until that evening.

    This forum has gotten quiet. I hope everyone is getting as excited as I am about this trip. There are some great videos on youtube from previous tours if you are wondering what to expect.

    Got everything finalized today. There will be two of us coming on the trip, arriving in Cario on the 27th and staying around a couple days after the tour. Anyone else staying around after the tour to explore more?

    I just booked mine for this trip too. 31 male, traveling solo; from Vancouver.

    Question – Is anyone else going to Alexandria for a day trip before the tour starts? I’m thinking of reaching Cairo on 26th Nov evening and then going to Alexandria on the 27th.
