    Planning on going on that tour – will be travelling solo as the majority of my friends are all teachers.

    Jess, I am considering doing the same two tours as you – how are you traveling from Turkey to Egypt (airline?)? The flights are killing me right now so I am trying to figure out different alternatives.

    Hi Tara,

    Sorry, I have been fighting with this website for days to be able to write back to you!

    I am flying – I booked a round trip ticket from
    Brisbane – Brisbane – Istanbul – Cairo – Brisbane. I am going with Turkish Airlines – affiliated through Emirates – leave the day of the 2nd, which is the day the Egypt trip starts.
    My airfare to Cairo from Istanbul was $240.
    What other alternatives have you come accross?

    cool, small world! are you flying directly to Istanbul? I’m flying through London, so on the after breakfast our last day on the tour, I’m spending most of the day in Istanbul since my flight out isn’t till the evening

    Hi everyone Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I am arriving the night of the 24th – so will have the day of the 25th in Istanbul.

    I am leaving for Egypt on the 2nd of October, pretty much straight after the tour finishes.

    I am staying at the Erbil Hotel where the tour leaves from, so if anyone is going to be around it would be great to meet up and have a look around before the tour Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I should be getting into Istanbul by noon on the 25th, I think my flight leaves at 6am or something from London, so I’m up for exploring during the day if you’re around Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Just booked my trip! I’m from from LA, can’t wait Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Still have to book my flight this week…kind of a last minute trip decision. I think I’m gonna stop somewhere in Western Europe before or after, not sure what’s good.
