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.

    9 day tour around Egypt with Sameh was AMAZING!! He is brilliant at keeping everyone so informed, his passion for his country and it's history really shines through in all his talks. He is a humble man with a warm heart and such dedication that he not only deserves tour guide for the month, but of the last 10 years or so that he has been a guide. My reasons for this being that everyone I know or people I've meet that have had friends on his tours speak extremely highly of Sameh. Also his family should also get some recognition for sharing such a brilliant man with all of us x

    I just got back from a Travel Talk tour to egypt and had an amazing time! Our guide Adham was the best and extremely knowledgeable. Although the tour covers a lot of ground and monuments, everything was worth seeing and the day and a half of sailing on the felucca was a much needed and very welcome break in the trip! Overall I would highly recommend this tour!

    Amazing trip that I 100% recommend. Sam the tour guide was awesome! Lots of driving but all worth it for the places you get to see. The felucca on the Nile was a highlight of my 3 month trip. I never felt unsafe. Food was great. Hotels were awesome. Just book it!!!

    Felucca Odyssey, Egypt: what an amazing trip that everyone MUST do!! Shady was the most knowledgeable, fun and down to earth tour guide I have ever met. His love for his country is contagious. Safety was a major concern for me initially when booking, however I have never felt so safe and comfortable throughout the whole trip. It is perfectly fine! It was honestly one of the best trips I have EVER done. I have a new love and knowledge for Egypt, something everyone should experience. The pyramids, Abu Simbal, numerous temples, Egyptian culture, wow what a week ... thanks again Shady for a trip of a lifetime!! #shadyisthebest

    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.
