Reviewed on 26 Feb 2022 by Emily DuvallThis was an excellent trip. We are thinking of coming back and I would definitely use the operator again.

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 and peopleOur sightseeing tours are operated and led by local guides. We use local drivers and all tour arrangements are made by local staff. In addition we use locally owned hotels and restaurants and all their staff are employed locally. Part of the entree fees to all Egyptian historical sites contributes to local conservation. We encourage our clients to visit a local charity called Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi. Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi Organization (NGO) tries to improve the quality of Education in Egypt in government run schools, especially primary schools. The organization also helps to reduce illiteracy as well as bringing up and educating orphans.
Through our environmental responsibility, all historical places visited are to be left as we found them without touching the sites or dropping litter. We always advise guests to conserve the environment and not to smoke at the historical sites. Our local staff are prevented to smoke during work. All our modern air-conditioned minibuses are provided with bins for rubbish and have all been fitted with environmental filters to reduce carbon emissions. Our transportation manager regularly inspects the vehicles to ensure their cleanliness.
Concerning the social and environmental responsibility of the cruise, first of all, all the staff employed on the cruises are local. There is a continuous check from the Egyptian ministry of environment on all cruises in Egypt concerning environmental responsibility and the conservation of the River Nile.
During your visit to the historical sites of Luxor and Aswan, there is a souk (Bazaar) where you can interact directly with local people and buy there wares with the help of our local guides. During the trip, we give a brief description of Egypt from Pharaonic time until the time of the revolution in 1952. We also give out information about the Arabic language, local religions and appropriate dress (particularly for women).
