Was good. Certain aspects like 2 days on the Felluca could have been just 1 night. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. I enjoyed Egypt more.

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for taking the time to get back to us with your feedback about the tour.
I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your trip and found the guides to be very knowledgeable and accommodating, that's exactly the type of feedback we hope to hear.

I'm sorry though that you didn't enjoy the 2 nights onboard the Felucca as much. We have actually made a number of changes to this trip for 2020 with the aim of making it a more experiential tour. This includes reducing the felucca cruise to just 1 night and adding in a night in a Nubian guesthouse in Aswan, plus new visits to Abydos and Dendara and removing the overnight drives. We hope that these updates will make the tour even better!

Again, thank you for taking the time to write your feedback and for joining us in Egypt and Jordan.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We know that making the positive difference we aim to achieve will not be an easy task. However, our enthusiasm and commitment towards our travel responsibility mission is far stronger than any obstacles. We believe that in order to achieve any objective, the company has to have accurate policies and procedures for the employees and the guests to follow in order to reach our goal.

We have decided that the environment is a major component of any local community and any negative effect on the environment would directly have an impact on the lives of the inhabitants of the local community. Therefore, we have drawn up a strict environmental protection policy that all our employees and travelers have to abide by. For example, we recycle empty ink cartridges, as well as the usual materials.

Egypt is already know as a country with excessive waste by the locals and we encourage all travelers to not follow this by throwing their trash in inappropriate places. Our bus drivers have an arrangement with travelers to leave their empty food wrappers and water bottles in the bus where they will collect it afterwards and dispose of it in an appropriate manner.

We implemented a facilities boat for the use of all felucca tours. This enables the travelers to get on the boat for toilet use. Through this initiative, we completely eliminate stopping on the banks of the Nile for toilet stops in the fields, helping to keep all waste in one place where it can be disposed of properly, and also using less fuel for stops.

On this trip we also make use of the most environmentally positive forms of transportation between the two countries.

For us, Responsible Travel is the only way to travel.

People

Throughout our long tourism business journey, exceeding 15 years of travel operation in the Middle East, we have succeeded in establishing strong links with the communities we are dealing with in the host destinations.

We believe that the Responsible Travel concept has to be a two-way strategy with both the travelers and the local community gaining benefits. We benefit the local communities we visit using a wide scope of activities that have a positive impact on the local economy, directly by donating money to charity organizations, financially supporting some local communities and by recruiting employees who belonging to the local community. We encourage our guests to buy local products and make use of services that people local community offer. We help indirectly through capacity building projects we implement with our employees and through the experiences and culture exchanges that take place between the locals and the travelers during our tours.

We promise to support the local community of every destination we take our travelers to. We will do this by employing local guides, using local handicraft shops and recommend shops to our travelers so that their vacation spending contributes to the people of that country.

We have also considered the social aspect of the local community and how to respect the customs and traditions of the inhabitants helping us operate our tours. We always provide our guests with all the information needed to understand the community they are visiting and we create valuable opportunities for the travelers and the locals to mingle and exchange ideas and thoughts.

The first objective is to operate our tours in the most perfect way possible. Our second objective, but not second in importance, is to benefit the local community, protect the environment, and have a positive social impact on the inhabitants living in our host destinations. One of the ways of doing this is to inform and educate our travelers on the cultures of the destinations. By doing this we aim to create a form of respect between the travelers and the local citizens who they will face along their tour.

We attempt to accommodate clients in our own hotels which will allow us to not only provide work to our own staff, but also have the bargaining power to provide clients with the best rates.

We educate all our staff on the real life situations of each destination. Sales consultants will use this information to inform potential travelers of the correct information and threats that they may face. By creating long lasting relationships with our local ground handlers, we are able to establish what needs the community has and through their information we can inform our travelers what they can contribute to the local community from their home countries.

Tipping is a custom in Egypt and more than that, people who provide services as waiters, bell boys and representatives rely on tips as their only means of topping up a very low income. We encourage and explain to our travelers that they should consider this when people provide them with a decent service.
