    5.0 - Excellent

    This trip was absolutely amazing. Our Egyptologist, Aboudy, made the trip incredible! The trip was the perfect length for us because we got to see everything we wanted without it becoming too repetitive or boring. The Egyptian people were so incredibly lovely and welcoming. When we do and up in Egypt again, we will definitely ask Mr. Aboudy to be our guide again!

    4.5 - Excellent

    This fantastic holiday takes the form of a road trip from Cairo to Luxor. Over a number of days I visited places of historic interest that are rarely seen by tourists but are the equal of more famous sites. I would like to give special mention to the impressive pyramid at Meidum, the very beautiful tombs at Beni Hassan and the well preserved temple at Abydos. The organisation by Encounters Travel was flawless and the Encounters guide Mohammed very friendly and informative. On route you also get to see a snippet of Egyptian rural life.
