    The tour was awesome! Our tour guide Sam was so knowledgeable, and was able to answer any questions we had. He also took us to some great local restaurants. We felt safe the entirety of the tour, and were well taken care of. Would definitely recommend to those wanting to explore Egypt!

    My partner and I had a fantastic time in Egypt with the TravelTalk crew; especially with our guide Sam! We were at first apprehensive about traveling to Egypt for the first time but with airport pick-up/drop-off and friendly TravelTalk staff at every corner, our worries were put to rest! I highly recommend this trip as there is something for everyone and they are very flexible to ensure you get the most out of your trip (such as staying that little bit longer at the markets to enjoy a shisha)!

    I have just returned from the Essential Egypt tour with Sameh. This tour has definitely exceeded my expectations. Sameh was exceptional with his detailed knowledge of Ancient Egypt. Sameh was very informative, fun and always looked after us by always making decisions on what is best for us. Not to mention Sameh is quite the comedian and never hesitated to socialise with the tour group, which brought us together. I wish I could do this all over again. Well done Sameh! What a trip!

    I had an amazing tour of Egypt traveling with the tour guide Sam and a group of lovely people on the 15 day tour!! Sam was an amazing guide, very informative and always very friendly. He helped make the tour a lot of fun with his extensive amount of Egyptian knowledge and his willingness to never turn down a laugh! Great job Sam!

    I toured through Egypt with the amazing Sam! By the time it was over I was sad to leave, his knowledge of his homeland is as great as him friendliness and charisma. I will definitely return to Egypt and tour again with him. Thank you Sam, you made my time very enjoyable and I learnt so much. All the best.

    The Tour was incredibly well planned and organized. This was my first travel talk tour and I was not sure what to expect, but given the language and cultural barriers visiting Egypt we thought it would be best to get a tour. What resulted was one of the best trips! Every day was extremely packed from early morning to late at night, Some thing I appreciated as I felt I truly saw the country in a short amount of time. Our guide was very knowledgable about Egyptian history and current Egyptian politics, and was very entertaining along the way. The 35 and under crowd made the tour an easy way to meet new friends around the world as well. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wishing to experience Egypt.

    Sameh was the best tour guide I've ever had, he made us feel so safe and welcome and he was so organised. One of the most knowledgeable men I have ever met. It was a pleasure spending 9 days with Sam, and I will definitely be back to Egypt. Thanks Sammy! :)
