What Is The Budget Of This Tour?

Dear Clients Please know that the tour price covers the services stated in the “Inclusions” section only and there are many other personal expenses which will occur during your trip are not included in the Tour prices such as Optional Activities, Tipping etc …

Gratuities and Tipping:

How much is the average Tipping and when to give it?

Nile Cruise Crew:

On Average there are about 15 to 18 persons working in the Dahabiya boat. The Guest sees only 5 or 7 persons of the crew. So it is unfair to give tips to people that you see and forget other people. That’s why there is a rule in all Nile Cruise boats that Guest should not pay any tips for anyone during the Nile Cruise Trip. All Tips must be given at the end of your trip. You put your tips in an envelope and write the amount on the back then leave it at the Reception of your Nile Cruise. All Tips will be collected from clients and divided to the whole Cruise Staff. This is a Fair solution for everyone.

The Tips is about 7 to 10 US$ Per Person per Night. For Example, if you are 2 Person and having a 4 Nights’ accommodation board the Dahabiya Tip Amount will be:

8 US$ x 14 Nights x 2 Person = 224 US$.

So you Leave 224 US$ in an Envelope at the Reception on the End of your Nile Cruise Trip.

For The Drivers, Representatives and Guides:

The following amounts are Recommended and on a Per Person Basis (in American Dollars USD).

Aswan Representative 3 to 5 US$ per person per Day

Luxor Representative 3 to 5 US$ per person per Day

Guides 5 to 10 US$ per person per Day

Drivers 3 US$ per person per Day

Please Note:

Tips are not an obligation on you. It is redemption for a good service. However wages in Egypt are very low. So most people depend on tips to survive, but this is not an excuse to give a bad service. If you feel that the person is not offering you a good service or stressing you to give him tips, DO NOT GIVE TIPS or REDUCDE THE AMOUNT. But please tell him why you did that. In most cases if you don’t give tips, people such as Driver, Cruise Staff, Felucca Captain or Carriage Car Driver will think that you gave the tips to your guide to give it to them and will start a Hard Talking with him about that and waste your time.
