I really enjoy the people I meet in the small group travel adventures booked through your vendors. Also, of course, Egypt is amazing and full of cultural wonders

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

Temper your expectations about some of the accommodations. And prepare for very aggressive merchandise hawkers.

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

Yes. Egypt is definitely not up to Western Standards on conservation/environmental issues.

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

excellent.

review 4 Jun 2019

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

Visits to Abu Simbel. Valley of the Kings tombs. Edfu, Kim Ombo, Karnak and Luxor temples. Cruising the Nile. In fact all of the tour was memorable and special.

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

It was very hot indeed so try and visit on cooler months. Also wear cover up loose clothing against the heat. Take tummy medication just in case.

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

Water was provided so we reused same bottle throughout. Opportunity to support local school and children and also to use local businesses.

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

The tour guide was great. Wished we could have had more time at each place we visited. A lot was crammed in to the time we had.

review 27 Feb 2019

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

For me, the Nile Cruise and also the visit to Karnak temple.

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

Enjoy watching the vegetation on the Nile Cruise, it is fantastic. Take as many optional tours as you can, but I am not sure about the Abu Simbel one (which I did not take), it was a very long trip and there were enormous crowds making the same trip.

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

To a point, I would like to benefit them a bit more on the vacation, but am not sure how.

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

Very good, the only thing I wonder about is how fresh the air in the boat cabin was, as it was imossible to open a window, so I am not sure how fresh it always was (air conditioning).

Accept the early starts they help you see things before it gets too hot.

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

Yes, I liked the fact we were supplied with drinking water.

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

Excellent.
