    My partner and I enjoyed this tour. The guide Peter was fantastic, he really went above and beyond to look after us! I think it is important for anyone going to Egypt to understand that tourism has been down in Egypt over the last 5-10 years and the country... Read more

    Loved the tour! Miriam was very knowledgeable & was always there for us. She even taught us a few Arabic words. I would recommend this tour if you want to do as much as possible in Egpyt. Also recommend adding the sunrise hot air balloon ride in Luxor.... Read more

    It was a jammed packed itinerary and we saw a lot! Beware that there are many expenses that are not included in the tour price. We had to pay for each entrance fee, which didn't cost much, but was very annoying. Abu Simbel was an extra, and quite costly.... Read more

    Timeless Tours commented on this review
    Hi Carol, Thanks for taking the time to get back to us with this feedback; we very much value your comments and will definitely be taking these on board when looking to make improvements to this tour. First of all, I’m pleased to hear that you were satisfied with the amount of sites visited; that’s exactly the aim of our Egypt tour - to include all of the main highlights in minimal time with great value for money. In regard to the extras, it is clearly mentioned on our website: ‘As per the itinerary, entrance fees not included’. After checking with our sales and customer services team, they have confirmed that you were sent the pre-departure information to help you budget for the trip; the pre-departure information is also available on our website. Most of the extras and optional activities such as Abu Simbel are available to book prior to travel. To suit every customer’s requirements we have a number of tours available, some of which include entrance fees, internal flights etc. whilst others do not, in order to give travellers the choice. Regarding your comments about the Nubian dinner, we are of the opinion, as are many of our customers, that this is very much a cultural experience as you have the opportunity to visit the home of local Nubian people and try food that they have freshly prepared in their own home. They may not socialise with travellers due to the language barrier however we feel that they are always very welcoming and hospitable. Timeless Tours Team
