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

Traveling on the Nile - both sailing on the Felucca and going to the Nubian village for dinner. It was beautiful and very relaxing.

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

To plan ahead as to what optional extras you would like to do - there are lots of options and extra trips that can be added on at the start or the end.

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

I think the trip worked with local guides both in seeing sites and in arranging the Felucca and Nubian village tours.

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

Excellent - so many impressive sites to see, tour guide was fantastic, I would highly recommend this trip

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

I cannot single out a particular part since everything was so exciting and wonderful: the pyramids and other ancient sites; the museum; the guide Mohammad Kemir, second to nobody; the superb food, both Nubian and Arab; the quality of the hotels; the night on Nile on board of felluca; the lovely people in the group - all these made the trip truly unforgettable!!!

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

The company wants to show their country and cares for the tourist, so go ahead and book a tour! Do not pay attention of rumors and prejudice about safety: yes, Egypt is a safe place in this time!

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

I hope part of our money went to local people, working in the industry. Given the tremendous number of plastic bottles for water thrown away I see negative impact on the environment - maybe the hotels should offer clean water in bulk and the tourist to refill their own bottles?

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

Excellent experience!

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

The sheer size, age and wonder of the things we were taken to view on this vacation was AMAZING!

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

Check the weather before you go. Cairo in Feb 2016 was as cold as a European deep winter. Everybody on our tour did not pack enough warm clothes.

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

Not really, to be honest.

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

5 out of 5! Amazing vacation!

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

We visited Jordan and Egypt to take in the cultural and historical aspects of the countries and we were not disappointed. Amazing wonderful sights in perfect weather.

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

If you book with this vacation provider you'll get unrivalled service, especially in Egypt and the experience at present due to lack of tourists is fantastic.

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

Not really

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

Magical

review 23 Apr 2013

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

The 3 day cruise on the Nile and the history

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

Be prepared for some fierce heat, hat and sunscreen essential, also the local stall holders can be very persistent..one has to rember it's their livlihood and not take offence.

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

yes, Egypt is desperate for tourism at the moment and those depending on tourists are really doing it tough. Not sure about 'reducing environmental impacts' that's a tricky one in Egypt...tourists are the cleanest and most careful about litter...it is a very dirty place sadly

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

Encounters Travel had organised the tour brilliantly. We felt safe at all times and the guides were knowledgable. Every detail was undertaken with great care and the transfers were executed very smoothly..eg Airport meet up, being dropped at the train station etc etc. I am about to visit Turkey with the same company and hope they keep up the same high standard..highly recommended!
