Annawall "Egypt via Felucca Odessey was hands down the best trip I have ever been on. The sites, the weather, the history, the people...all of it. However I have to admit none of this would have mattered though without Sameh as our guide. It was Sam who made his trip what it was. Sorry Travel Talk, the trip is great but Sam’s greater!!

    I had Mohammad as a guide and he was very knowledgeable. I do wish we were given more time to shop and use the bathroom. Everything was always rushed, but we did cover a lot of things. Also would have like a little more communication on what was going on.

    We did so much in a short time! Adham was excellent in explaining all the culture and temples to us! He made all the stops memorable. I was surprised how organized travel talk was. From the moment you come out to the airport to being dropped off they are there and ready to help!

    I have always wanted to visit Egypt, but the country has been on the Canadian High-Risk list for many years. However, I saw that this tour generally had great ratings so we decided to book the Felucca Odyssey trip. Traveltalk handled everything fantastically, even picking us up at the airport and getting our Visas (that you just get on arrival). There was not a single moment of the trip where I regretted booking a tour group. Our tour guide Mo was incredible and deeply knowledgeable about Egyptian history. I was grateful for the TL:DR history briefs before each attraction so we could go in and actually have an idea of just what we were looking at. Hardly anyone in Egypt speaks English and even driving around involves going through multiple armed security points, so this is not a country to visit [without a guide] if you don't speak Arabic and have some experience with 3rd-world countries. Going with a tour group definitely shielded us from any potentially unsafe experiences. I would highly recommend going with Traveltalk if you are planning a trip to Egypt and looking for a good balance of knowledge and fun!

    It was so nice to see how passionate Sam is about Egypt even after all the years he has been guiding for. He sure passed on the love to us. I had a wonderful trip!! He helped us understand everything really well. And answered all our questions even the silly ones! Highly recommend Sam as your guide

    I have done multiple tours with different companies and Sam is the best tour guide that I have ever had. He was patient, knowledgeable, funny and went out of his way to make sure that we had a fantastic trip. My tour of Egypt was made amazing by Sam. I feel lucky to have had him as my guide.

    Sameh was such an amazing guide with a great knowledge of Egypt and was always down to have a laugh. He went above and beyond to accommodate everyone and really helped ensure that we were taken care of for food (a few of us are vegan). The tour itself was also amazing and so much content and many areas were covered in such a short space of time!

    Thank you Sam for taking us from Cairo to Aswan and back. The tour packs a lot into 9 days and wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable without your enthusiasm and energy guiding us the entire way. How lucky we are to have a qualified Egyptologist showing us through a country with such immense and complex history. Thank you so much for your passion, your knowledge and your humour, it made my trip to Egypt something I'll never forget. Thank you Sam! ❤️

    Traveling all over Egypt was an amazing experience, but what really made it unforgettable was our tour guide. Sam was so caring, fun and full of knowledge. Regardless of what the topic or story was, he had a way to make everything interesting. If we ever had questions or needed anything, he was always more than happy to help. Sam is hands down the best tour guide I’ve ever had throughout my years of traveling. If anyone has the opportunity to explore Egypt with him, I would 100% recommend them to do so. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime, Sam!!

    Egypt via Felucca Odessey was hands down the best trip I have ever been on. The sites, the weather, the history, the people...all of it. However I have to admit none of this would have mattered though without Sameh as our guide. It was Sam who made his trip what it was. Sorry Travel Talk, the trip is great but Sam’s greater!! Ancient Egyptian history is hard to grasp at best due to the complex timelines and stories we’re not too familiar if you haven’t studied Egyptology. Sam however had a unique way of teaching things which had us hanging off the edge of our seats to find out more and absolutely enthralled into what Sam was saying. He would breakdown complex stories by drawing them in the sand or even had us act it out in a play where we played the characters (funniest and best way to teach ancient mythology ever) just so we would pay attention and help the story stick in our minds. He was funny, kind, VERY patient (which with 37 kiwis, Aussies and Americans was not a easy thing!), SUPER smart and treated each and every one of us like one of his own tribe. He started the trip as our guide but I can honestly say he left that trip with 37 friends. Thank you Sameh for everything you did for us!!

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
