Other important information

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Egypt:
There is never a shortage of sunshine in Egypt, with averages of 11 hours a day during the summer and 8 hours a day in winter. From April to October the average temperature ranges from 21-28C while between November and March this drops to 13-20C. This does vary along the Mediterranean coast which, while still warm, is more prone to periods of cloud and rain in winter. Generally, winters in Egypt are warm enough to allow pleasant and comfortable travelling all year long, though travellers should be prepared for cold nights.
 
Jordan:
For ideal sightseeing conditions, the best time to visit Jordan is during the spring (March - May) and autumn (September to November) months. At these times of the year the temperatures are cool enough to spend your days exploring Jordan's iconic sites.

Istanbul
Temperatures in May/June and September/October are between 22 and 30°C. January/December has an average temperature of around 15°C.
 
Cappadocia
Cappadocia has a continental climate characterised by dry summers and sometimes snowy winters. Rainfall is sparse and the region is largely semi-arid to arid. There is a sharp difference in the temperature between day and night and it is not uncommon to have cold nights interspersed with hot days. 
 
Kusadasi
There are two main seasons in Kusadasi: the cold season and hot season, which basically correlate with winter and summer in other parts of Europe. The shoulder seasons, autumn and spring, experience weather patterns that are a mix of both the cold and warm seasons.
