    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 negative regarding this trip is my glutenfree dietary needs were not catered a majority of the time. This aside, best trip ever!

    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

    The trip was more than expected. Waleed, our guide, was nothing less than excellent. His had that rare combination of a wealth of knowledge and the gift to explain it while engaging the group. The trip between locations were well organized and all went smoothly.

    The most carefree guided tour I've ever had (in 40+ countries). Every little detail was taken care of. One of the best guides I've ever had, warm and friendly from the get-go, and knowledgeable beyond belief. His making sure everything was taken care of was one reason the tour was so carefree. It was the first time I've used Encounters and they certainly set the bar higher for other companies I've used in the past, including other British companies like Explore and Exodus. Well done!

    My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. I can't speak highly enough of Sherrif and the others from Encounters. We were taken care of the whole time, from arrival to departure. Sherrif went far out of his way for us, making sure we had everything we needed. His knowledge of the Egyptian sites is outstanding and his sense of humor kept everyone laughing. Best tour ever!

    I just got back from Egypt with Encounters. I can't even begin to explain how wonderful this trip was. From the ease of booking (and affordable price) to the amazing people on the ground in Egypt. I always felt like we were being taken care of and were in great hands. Every single bit of this tour was planned to perfection. Nubian Adventure is not a tour for relaxation, but really, who goes to Egypt to relax? I really felt like we saw as much as we possibly could in the time we were there. And our Egyptologist, Waleed, was the star of the trip. He was so knowledgeable, so kind, and so smart. We all cried at the end of our trip. We felt like we had known him forever. For those who are concerned about safety in Egypt, I never once felt unsafe. There are police and security guards everywhere and more importantly, smiling faces everywhere. The Egyptians so very friendly and very happy to see tourists. I can't express how magical this trip was. I can't wait to go back.
