Heather Previll review 21 Mar 20094 star rating

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The Nile cruise on the Movenpick; all the monuments, temples, tombs, and the Pyramids.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Do your own research on hotels so you can chose the ones that suit your preferences best.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Good to excellent. Some feedback - for the most part, well organized, great customer service, appropriately scheduled. In our opinion, hotel choices could have been better, hotel rooms themselves not 5 star although paid 5 star prices. Still, friendly service and safety never a concern.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The people - specifically the Egyptians - they are amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


I would suggest going thru this operator and if they can afford it - do a customized trip with a guide - much better than a large group.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I hope so - but can't say for sure.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent, Brilliant, Amazing! The touring company was the best.

Read the operator's response here:

We always use local staff from the cities and towns that travellers are visiting. In many occasions the local expert or the guide who will usually be in charge of paying the local service providers directly. The only occasion that we do not use local service providers if it is not available in a certain town or village.
