Grand Circle Travel - Egypt

I recently received the email report from Alice, which is quite informative to say the least.
We are planning a trip to Israel and Egypt in Oct 01 with Grand Circle Travel. Has anyone taken their trip to Egypt, and if so, would appreciate any information you have for us.

Many thanks
Howard G.

Just know this: What ever itinerary Grand Circle gives you for your time in Egypt, plan on them changing it the day you arrive. You'll still get to do all the things they said you'll do, but the order and sequence will not be the same. Don't plan anything with anyone outside your tour group until you hear what the REAL schedule is.
Good luck.

Took Grand Circle's 14-day tour (7-day Nile Cruise) in November 2000.

Great trip. Loved it. The order of things did get changed around a bit, but so what! I wasn't doing anything else. We loved our tour director and the other Grand Circle group who we kind of interacted with loved theirs. There were the two groups of 30 or so on our (old fashioned, rather dated, but appropriate for Egypt, we thought) boat. And we stayed at the same hotel, etc. But each group did their own thing. We got held up at the locks on the way from Luxor to Aswan for 30-some hours. But that was neither the fault of Grand Circle or Presidential Nile cruise lines. Oh, and Grand Circle has since November gotten its own ship, so chances are you wouldn't have the creaky one we had. It was sort of an Agatha Christie-era boat. Hotels were top drawer! Good food. Highly recommend them. A lot of lecturing at museums and temples. But we wandered off on our own.

Debating between using a tour or pulling together a 'do-it-yourself' trip to Egypt. Did you feel that the Grand Circle Travel provided good value for your trip?
