    Travel Talk Felucca Odyssey with Sam! This trip exceeded my expectations, as a solo female traveller I was keen to join a group tour and was pleased our group was generally like minded 25+ year olds. The hotels were pretty good for the limited amount of time we spent in them. The bus could be more comfortable as we spent many hours on it including 2 x 9hr trips but it is Egypt I suppose. The couple days spent on the Felucca chilling out on the Nile River was possibly my favourite as was happy just to relax for a while and it's super peaceful. Too many sales stops IMO. Now to the icing on the cake was the guide Sam (Sameh) whose been working for travel talk for over 10 years! As an Aswan raised, Cairo living local whose been working with Aussies & Kiwis for years I was thrilled at how funny and cheeky he was to help us all enjoy ourselves. As an expert egyptologist he was incredibly knowledgable and informative without boring us. Just know that the Egyptians were the first of everything! Sam must make a group of friends everytime he runs a tour and he'll always have many hosts if he was ever to come to Australia. Keep up the good work.

We were a group of 44 and it honestly was extremely fun and there were activities for everyone. DO NOT MISS THE Felucca ride it was a highlight for me.

    Sameh is an absolute legend. Super knowledgeable, funny and has good banter! Everything was well organized and he's definitely everything you could ask for In a tour guide. Anyone who gets to do a tour with him is incredibly lucky. One of the best tour leaders I've had.

    This tour was everything and more! The most amazing experience of my life. Sam was awesome! He was down to earth, had so much knowledge, and made us feel at home. The hotels were beautiful and clean; the nubian locals were friendly and kind and the Felucca trip was unbelievable! Although the bus trips could be long it was definately worth it. Highly recommend!

      I am about to book one of the 9 day egypt tours and I was wondering what the difference is between the Essential Egypt and the Felluca Odyssey tours?

      The only difference would be the accommodation during the Nile cruise.
      The accommodation will be made at hotels on the Essential Egypt tour, or you'll stay at the Felucca with Feluıcca Odyssey tour.

      Some trips don't have a local payment listed. Does this mean there is no local payment at all?

      Each month we have flash sale that influences these payments. For this departure, there is no local payment required.
