Egypt is an extraordinary country and exploring it will get you travellers there with the locals, learning about their way of life and supporting as many local communities as possible. Most of the accommodation is in locally owned, small guesthouses. Local group leaders provide a perspective on life in Egypt and local guides are used at major sites.
The itinerary includes a boat trip on the Nile River in a traditional felucca. This supports an ancient mode of transport as well as supporting the Nubian crew in their way of life. The trip also includes a visit to a Nubian village where we share a traditional meal. Travellers can see local women baking sunburnt bread in the same way their great grandmothers would have and listen to men play traditional music.
Travellers visit Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) in Luxor, an organisation promoting the care of all animals from dogs to donkeys. ACE provides veterinary services as well as teaching local animal owners how to care for their animals to give them a longer, healthier life. Travellers are encouraged to donate to the charity so they can continue their work and education.
