Our Shoestring tours have been designed to offer great value for money along with an exciting and fun mix of historic sightseeing, interactions with locals and some more adventurous activities. These could involve an overnight felucca sailboat cruise, some desert exploration, or camel and jeep safaris. The level of accommodation is generally a little lower than our small-group tours, however upgrades are usually available should they be required. The maximum group size of our Shoestring groups may also be a little higher, though in practice there's often little difference. We may also include a few less activities and sightseeing tours in the set itinerary, instead allowing these to be booked as optional extras, either before travel on when on the tour.

All these tours may also be used as a base for a lower cost private tailor-made itinerary.
