Christine "I loved my trip visiting all of the historical sites. Nothing to dislike. I appreciated the time the group had to themselves so I especially could be out and about and meet with the locals which was the primary motive for my trip.

    Only criticism was that the initial meeting time and place was not clear. But from that point I couldn’t fault anything, the trip exceeded expectations. Special thanks to Mohamed who couldn’t do enough for the group.

    Trip of a lifetime. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and really helped our group connect and have fun. The trip packed in a ton of activity, but there was always time to explore on our own and even a few mornings to relax by the pool on the Nile River.... Read more

      The website is very user friendly and the selection of tours far exceeded that of traditional travel agents. I wanted to visit 3 specific countries that are close to each other and one of the only places I could find such a tour was through tourradar.
