    5.0 - Excellent

    My husband and I took the 10 day encounters tour of Egypt in February 2017. Waleed was our tour leader, friend, brother, teacher, host and by the end of our trip, he was family. Waleed spent every minute of our trip sharing his vast knowledge and caring for the entire tour group....we didn’t have to worry about any travel or logistic details. And I learned so much!!!! Waleed was the most knowledgable and passionate tour leader I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and now he is a life long friend. A+

  • Elena21st December 2017
    It was easy to browse and book. My queries were answered quickly and the staff was friendly and very helpful. I would recommend Tour Radar without any hesitation. I recommended it to my son and he booked a trip to Colombia through Tour Radar.
