Mariana "It was generally a successful but exhausting excursion due to very early awakening (3-5am). I think the night transport with the train on long distances is better than the plane, which involves a night without sleep. Packed meals replacing breakfast or lunch were very poor and inadequate. In Cairo should be reserved more time for visits, 1/2 day is absolutely insufficient. on the last day it was p..."

    The tour was amazing! It was well organized and we got to see all the places I wanted to see of Ancient Egypt! On the trip we always had a guard with us which made us feel very safe. Medhat was super informative and kind! By the end of the trip, we all felt... Read more

    This was a faced paced on the go tour, not for those who want lots of free time to lay about. Early starts and some late finishes but ... it was truly well organised, well supported, covered all the must see sights plus more. Did get some free time here... Read more

    Everything about the tour exceeded my expectations! Saw so much but still had enough down time and optional things to make it a relaxing adventure. Plenty of fun to go along with it. Highly recommended!

    Overall tour was good but pulling me and my wife from the original group and putting into another group and a bus in Aswan was humiliating, then we were given a makeshift cabin in the cruise ship at the water level, musty damp,horrible dirty carpets,... Read more

    It was very fast-paced, with early mornings (often 3 a.m.), which necessitated box breakfasts (which were awful, so bring your own snacks). But we saw everything, thanks to our very informative, nice guide, Miriam. However, I wish she had spent more time... Read more

    Overall it was good. I wish we did not have to end each place we visited in a market! The vendor's are rude and relentless. They ruin the time in Egypt, can't there be a way to make them understand we don't want to be treated that way? There is too much... Read more

    Original itenerary was excellent, but really our ship left Aswan just at 4:30 pm, and as result we saw some temples in darkness and to be awake at 5:00 am it was really upsetting

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • I'm a single traveller; will I be charged a single supplement?

      Generally, the tour accommodation is based on a twin-share basis and if you are travelling on your own, you will share a room with another Timeless Tours traveller of the same gender. However, some of the tours have a compulsory single supplement as it is not possible to share a room with another solo traveller. To find out more information please contact our team of Travel Experts.

    • Do your tours include international airfare?

      Travellers arrive from all over the world to begin the tours so it is not possible to include international airfare. You will need to make your own arrangements to get to the meeting destination for the first day of your Timeless Tour.

    • Are airport transfers included and how do I arrange it?

      Most of the Timeless tours include airport transfers. If stated on the itinerary that an arrival transfer is included, you will be picked up from the airport by a representative holding a Timeless Tours sign at the airport on the first day of your tour, at any time you wish. To organise an airport transfer please contact our team of Travel Experts.
