    The tour was fantastic, Sherif was the best guide ever! You could tell he was absolutely passionate about his job, his craft, his country and the people. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable, safe and having a great time. My only... Read more

    Encounters Travel commented on this review
    Dear Phuong, Thank you for taking the time to get back to us with your feedback, it's very much appreciated. I'm really pleased to hear that you were happy with the service Sherif provided you with, he's one of most experienced and loved guides so I'm sure he'll be happy to read your comments, which we'll be passing on. I'm sorry you found that your Gluten Free dietary requirements weren't catered for perhaps as well as they could have been. In general we haven't found this to be a problem with the hotels we use as there will normally be a good selection of options to suit all dietary requirements in the hotels we work with, though we do always still pass on meal requests such as yours. On the sleeper train in particular options can be more limited as the train operator doesn't offer a large selection to choose from, though again, we do always pass on dietary requirements when reserving the tickets. I agree that we could have communicated this better so you perhaps could have taken some food on board in case the included meals were not suitable for you. Overall I'm pleased to hear that the meals didn't spoil your overall enjoyment of the tour and that you're still able to consider the 'best trip ever!', that's exactly the type of feedback we aim to receive. Thank you once again for your constructive feedback, I hope that you'll decide to join us on another adventure in the future.

    The Nubian Adventure from Encounters Travel was exceptional. Big Moe, our tour guide and Islam, Encounter’s manager did everything possible to make our small group happy and comfortable. We highly recommend this company and this trip. March 2918

      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
