1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Difficult to single out one part, as it was all good. The combination of temples and other activities such as the Nubian village and felucca, was good.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The train from Cairo to Aswan is very basic. Unless one really wants the experience, an upgrade to the flight would be advisable.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The use of local guides and the benefit generally of tourism to the local economy is beneficial.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

An excellent vacation. Really pleased that we went.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We loved every aspect of our vacation. It was all so memorable and exciting thanks to the excellent organisation and knowledge of all staff.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for lots of early starts and if possible stay at the Red Sea for an extra night to relax.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It benefited local people as all tour guides and reps were local. Some environmental impacts could be reduced by taking the land option rather than flying.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Our vacation was just amazing, we saw, did and learnt so much about Egypt and Egyptian History. Our tour guides Honey and Mohammed were both incredible. I think now we are home we will look back and reflect on our trip and think Wow, what an incredible experience.

review 29 Mar 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

All the sites and experiences were amazing, but what made the trip most memorable was the extensive knowledge and personal attention provided by our guide Big Mo - nothing was too much trouble.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The tour notes provided by the operator were very accurate and helpful in preparing for the trip. If something isn’t quite as you expected it, remember our guide, Big Mo’s, phrase “It’s all part of the experience”.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The benefit to local people was that the trip provided jobs and anyone who provided a service to us was appropriately tipped. The trip did not reduce environmental impact but increased it, particularly by the extensive use of plastic (most of which seems to end up on the banks of any water channel in Egypt) and by energy and food wasted in some of the luxury hotels we stayed in. No evidence of nature conservation in Egypt, but certainly conservation of historical sites.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Am amazing experience.

review 15 Feb 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was all memorable from start to finish. There was only my sister and myself in the group so having a personal guide made it even more special. All the temples were different but all amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

You have to be prepared for very early mornings and lots of traveling from place to place. The hotel were great but there wasn’t a lot of time to enjoy their facilities.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Egypt relies on tourism and during Covid it has been very difficult for many of them. They are so pleased to see us all returning and were friendly and helpful.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I would have liked more interaction with the local artisans not just the shop keepers who were selling products from China. The personnel from the operator were very helpful pleasant and knowledgeable
