    4.0 - Good

    The overall tour was excellent. Mostafa was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. The oasis hotel was not a good hotel. It was too far from Cairo city and the rooms weren't as clean as the other hotels. Food wasn't the best quality during the overall tour. The group felt that there was not enough time to look around at the sites, especially at the museum, Karnak temple and the Khan el khalili bazaar. The felucca experience ended up being more focussed about drinking alcohol rather than enjoying the peace and quiet on the Nile. Rather than having the entry fees in the small print, the whole group felt it would be better to have them included in the overall total cost of the tour. It felt a bit misleading as the total adds up quickly. The cost for Abu simbel didn't make sense as the price on the ticket was significantly less than £65. Travel can't cost that much per person. The Nubian dinner wasn't a good experience. It just felt like we were put in one room and given a crocodile to hold. To sum up, it was an enjoyable experience but I would have gladly paid for the entry fees before the tour so that way I could budget spending money properly and everyone in the tour felt pretty much the same way.

    Having just done the Egypt tour by felluca, I have been raving about it to all my friends! Not having done a traveltalk tour before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but have heard good things from friends. Sam has pretty much made the tour for me. He was so knowledgeable and passionate but also kept it at a level so not to overwhelm us. And he was just as much fun to talk to and really looked after us during the bus trips and on the felucca. Some of the bus rides were just long and tedious but it is what we needed to do to see so much of the country! Thanks Sam for an amazing trip and please take care of my friends when I send them your way!

    It was my third tour, first with Travel Talk. It was alright, the guide was nice and the hotels very good. I was very surprised that we had to pay a lot of extras (we had to pay for all the entrances, to visit Abu Simbel, to go to the Nubian village, etc.). But the worst part of the tour was our bus. We spent a lot of time inside the bus since the tour covers a lot (I think I can say more than a day in total) and transportation was very uncomfortable. I don't recommend this tour.

    Sam was amazing and set the bar really high. We had a ton of fun. I will say that we weren't aware that it would be somewhat of a younger crowd (early to mid 20's) and some in their early 30's as well, which was great and fitting for us but just something we weren't exactly expecting which could have just been naive on our part. Just be ready for a lot of action and fun and the trip of a lifetime! I would even do this tour again... Although I might choose the cruise just because I like my comforts and a bit more privacy, however the Felucca is still epic fun! Felucca is just a bit more of a party and you all sleep in an open area on the Felucca. Both are great options that just depends of what type of experience you are going for. There is so much to learn from the history of Egypt and Sam is SO filled with information that I could go again and learn so much more. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. Even the bus driver added a lot of fun to the trip! We fell in LOVE with Egypt! Thank you Sam and friends!! xoxo

      I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
