Learning about Ancient Egypt and seeing the extraordinary relics with a group of people who were equally interested. Also the variety of this trip in particular.

Don't expect luxury, but do expect variety, fun and great fellow traveling companions

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


Very much so. We were a small group, we ate at the homes of locals on two occasions, we travelled by train and boat and we stayed at local hotels.

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


Fabulous - better than I had anticipated.

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

Egypt is an extraordinary country and exploring it will get you travelers there with the locals, learning about their way of life and supporting as many local communities as possible. Most of the accommodation is in locally owned, small guesthouses. Local group leaders provide a perspective on life in Egypt and local guides are used at major sites.

The itinerary includes a boat trip on the Nile River in a traditional felucca. This supports an ancient mode of transport as well as supporting the Nubian crew in their way of life. The trip also includes a visit to a Nubian village where we share a traditional meal. Travelers can see local women baking sunburnt bread in the same way their great grandmothers would have and listen to men play traditional music.

Travelers visit Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) in Luxor, an organisation promoting the care of all animals from dogs to donkeys. ACE provides veterinary services as well as teaching local animal owners how to care for their animals to give them a longer, healthier life. Travelers are encouraged to donate to the charity so they can continue their work and education.
