Steve "There was a marked difference between the two parts of this tour. The Jordan half was notably inferior with poor hotels and a guide who was knowledgeable but rather disinterested in any sort of engagement and gave the impression that he'd rather be elsewhere. Egypt couldn't have been more different with caring contacts throughout. I was extremely well looked after from only a few minutes after lea..."

    Overall, this was an excellent tour. I have only got good things to say about the tour. The jordan part was almost like a private tour with excellent driver (Mohammad Al Tobohe) and Guide (Mr Khalid). They were extremely helpful whole time, particulary... Read more

    Everything was fantastic. Both of our guides, Big Mo in Egypt and Ibrahim Bunz in Jordan were amazing, their knowledge on everything was a pleasure to listen to. I definitely recommend both of the tours and EncountersTravel as a tour operator.

    Encounters Travel commented on this review
    Dear Traveller, I'm sorry that you had issues with our tour itinerary changing, though I am pleased to see that you did enjoy your trip and were able to give us a 4-star rating. We did make a change to the Jordan section of this tour earlier this year and at the time we contacted all customers to inform them of the changes we had made. We would consider the changes we made to be improvements with the addition of the Wadi Rum overnight camp which was something many of our previous customers had requested. Unfortunately we don't see a passenger name on your review, however we would be happy to receive any feedback you might have about your tour or customer experience. You can contact us regarding this on tours@encounterstravel.com Thanks again. Encounters Travel

    The tour was amazing. From the first minute since we got to Jordan till the minute our flight took off from Cairo, we had fabulous time. We had a last minute change of the hotel, but the Niroukh hotel staff was amazing. They fulfilled our every wish and... Read more

    Dear Diana, Thanks for taking the time to get back to us with your feedback, I'm really pleased that you had such a good time on the tour and that the unexpected closure of the Dead Sea area didn't impact upon your overall enjoyment of the tour. I'm pleased to hear that our alternate option of taking the group to Aqaba for some beach time was well received and that you enjoyed being able to snorkel in the Red Sea. I hope that you'll decide to travel with us again in the future. Encounters Travel
