At present, due to restrictions imposed by the Egyptian Government, foreign visitors are not permitted to travel on the First Class trains between Cairo and Aswan, and from Luxor back to Cairo. Foreign nationals are being required by the local authorities to upgrade to the sleeper train, at an additional cost of £90 per person, each way.
The situation is improving, and we are hopeful this will soon change, but at present for this journey tourists are required to either take the Sleeper Upgrade at an additional cost of £60 per person We are monitoring the situation and will update this information as necessary. If the First Class sitting train becomes an option on your departure we will notify you and be able to refund you this cost in full.
