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


All the sites and experiences were amazing, but what made the trip most memorable was the extensive knowledge and personal attention provided by our guide Big Mo - nothing was too much trouble.

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


The tour notes provided by the operator were very accurate and helpful in preparing for the trip.
If something isn’t quite as you expected it, remember our guide, Big Mo’s, phrase “It’s all part of the experience”.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The benefit to local people was that the trip provided jobs and anyone who provided a service to us was appropriately tipped.
The trip did not reduce environmental impact but increased it, particularly by the extensive use of plastic (most of which seems
to end up on the banks of any water channel in Egypt) and by energy and food wasted in some of the luxury hotels we stayed in.
No evidence of nature conservation in Egypt, but certainly conservation of historical sites.

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


Am amazing experience.

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


It was all memorable from start to finish. There was only my sister and myself in the group so having a personal guide made it even more special. All the temples were different but all amazing.

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


You have to be prepared for very early mornings and lots of travelling from place to place.
The hotel were great but there wasn’t a lot of time to enjoy their facilities.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Egypt relies on tourism and during Covid it has been very difficult for many of them. They are so pleased to see us all returning and were friendly and helpful.

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


Excellent

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

On this tour we have recently replaced the internal flight from Hurghada to Cairo with an overland drive. This makes more efficient use of the tour vehicle removes the extra CO2 from the use of the flight, and takes about the same time overall now that the new road on this route is completed.

Drinking water and the waste associated by single use plastic water bottles is something we are working hard on in Egypt as well as other destinations. All travellers are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and we are rolling out a program of providing large water canisters in our vehicles on group tours to take refills from. We are also offering water filtering bottles to travellers, all of which which can vastly reduce waste generated by our customers both during the tour and on an ongoing basis.

Our Egypt guides are strict in monitoring and preventing littering to protect the sites we visit and waste bins are provided in all vehicles.
Many of the sites we visit are incredibly important historical and natural wonders, and we encourage our travellers to treat these sites as such, sticking to marked paths, not climbing on ruins, picking wild plants or flowers, and avoiding disturbing the local wildlife as much as possible.

People

In Egypt, we support local crafts makers and artists by visiting a couple of carefully selected local shops. Here travellers can learn about the historic methods of producing papyrus, alabaster and perfumed oils,, as well as purchasing souvenirs if they wish. All products sold in these shops are sourced from the surrounding local communities.

On our Gods of Egypt Tour we only work with local Egyptian guides, all of whom are trained and qualified in Egyptology. We feel this gives our clients the best possible experience of the country in which they are travelling.

To provide a more in depth experience of Egyptian culture, we also take a walking tour through the Nubian Village we stay close to outside Aswan, and through the less visited back streets of Old Cairo before reaching the more touristy sections of the Khan-el-Khalili bazaar.

We make a donation for every customer who visits Egypt which is split between supporting a children's orphanage in Cairo which we have helped for nearly 20 years, and also in doing litter/waste clean up programs in some of the desert areas we visit.
