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.Show detailed ratings
- LauraWritten on January 9, 20175.0 - ExcellentThe 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!Show detailed ratings
- KevinWritten on January 5, 20165.0 - ExcellentMy 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!Show detailed ratingsEncounters Travel commented on this reviewThanks for your amazing review and we are so happy you loved Egypt, and Sheriff!
- BrittanyWritten on December 8, 20154.5 - ExcellentI 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.Show detailed ratingsEncounters Travel commented on this reviewThanks for your amazing review and we are so happy that you enjoyed our Nubian Adventure tour and Waleed! Looking forward to helping you plan your next Encounters Travel adventure! The Encounters Team
- AnonymousWritten on April 9, 20155.0 - ExcellentI haven't stopped raving about this trip since it started. Everything was so organised which made for a hassle free tour. Our guide, Waleed was inspirationally passionate for his country and its history, infecting us all with that same passion. His friendly nature made the farewells harder. I could go on and on about this trip and I imagine I will for years to come. It truly was an experience of a lifetime.Show detailed ratings

- AAnonymousWritten on November 1, 20115.0 - ExcellentI have to say my trip to Egypt was the best....The pyramids were awesome and were more than I expected, we had the best tour guide his name is Sam. He was so imformative, and didnt let us down with anything we threw at him… I even got to ride a camel around the pyramids, loved it.
- AAnonymousWritten on November 1, 20115.0 - ExcellentWe had a very memorable trip! Everything was extremely well organised, and the leaders went out of their way to ensure we were happy. We felt like individuals, not members of a group, and we felt really well looked after. Hotels were excellent. Our guide couldn't have been more knowledgeable, and effortlessly passed on his passion of Egyptology to us. Value for money is an understatement!
