    Hi Alison,

    My name is Kaelie I’m also doing this tour. I get in pretty early on the morning of the 26th so I’m looking to do a day trip or something before the official tour start. Let me know if you’re interested. Hope to hear back from you!

    This is my first Contiki trip and I’m doing it solo, so I’m hoping for great things! I’m coming in via London so I’ll arrive in Cairo pretty early (12:35am on April 26). So I’ll have a whole day to play with if jet lag isn’t horrible.
    Thanks for sharing that link really helpful. Can’t wait to meet you guys.

    PS. Where are the rest of folks for this tour?

    Hi all,

    My name is Abby and I’m from Ontario, Canada. This will be my second contiki tour, though my first time going solo. I was apprehensive of touring alone in a country where english isn’t prominent (Hopefully their washrooms goes by images and not words – lol). It’s a great comfort to hear other people will be in the same situation, and I can’t wait to meet you all! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I’m to arrive a day earlier, and would definitely be interested in meeting up with people to see the city.

    Hi Everyone,

    This is going to be my third Contiki experience. I am also doing the Great Britain tour from 12 – 19 April.

    I arrive in Cairo on 25 April. I will be staying at the Oasis that night. Would certainly be interested in doing a city tour before the tour starts.

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Hi All,

    It appears many of you are arriving early in the morning on April 26th (12:15/12:30AM?). lol – That sounds familar! I was looking at those flights too then decided to fly in a day early. Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->

    Temporarily excluding the possibility of a day tour, I’m guessing that most people just want to tour the city(??). I propose that everyone who’s interested in meeting up to come to the front of the hotel lobby in the morning at 9:00am (Gotta get use to getting up early anyways…) We can have a quick breakfest together and still have plenty of time to explore. Bring ideas, maps and energy – assuming jet lag hasn’t sucked it out of you yet. haha

    Sound good? (I.E. Got a better meeting location or time?)

    Can’t wait!
    ~Abby

    PS. If anyone has information of a day tour, please share! I wouldn’t mind hearing more information regarding this Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I’m on this tour, this is my second Contiki tour! My first one was 6 years ago (European Discovery) so I’m really psyched to be doing this again. I am leaving Las Vegas (where I live) on April 24 and getting to Cairo around 8pm on April 25. I want to do something on the 26th before the tour leaves!!

    Hey guys

    I’m from Alberta, Canada, and I’m on this tour as well. I get in the night of the 23rd so I’ve got a couple of days kicking around Cairo ahead of time.

    Haven’t done a Contiki tour before, but this looks like it’s going to be a blast.

    Hi guys,

    Really good to hear from some more folks. Anyone else on BA0155 out of Heathrow on April 25th.
    Abby,
    A friend told me about this tour agency so I contacted them about their day trip to Alexandria.
    http://www.eoltours.com/
    They were pretty prompt in their response and in answering my questions. The price for just a single person was US$100. Pick up from the Oasis was slated for 6am and they would get me back to the Oasis in time for the 7pm group meeting. If more folks are interested we might be able to get a better rate per person. So I’m just putting it out there. Take a look at the site it has more details of the stops in Alexandria.

    Hey guys,

    Just a reminder to email me at lvchrisb+trip@gmail.com if you want to join me, Abby, and Kaelie on a daytrip to Alexandria on Apr 26! Right now it’s $60pp but that may go down if we get more people. We will leave early and be back in time for the orientation meeting that night.

    See y’all in Africa!
