Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Our sightseeing tours are operated and led by local guides. We use local drivers and all tour arrangements are made by local staff. In addition we use locally owned hotels and restaurants and all their staff are employed locally. Part of the entree fees to all Egyptian historical sites contributes to local conservation. We encourage our clients to visit a local charity called Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi. Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi Organization (NGO) tries to improve the quality of Education in Egypt in government run schools, especially primary schools. The organization also helps to reduce illiteracy as well as bringing up and educating orphans.

Through our environmental responsibility, all historical places visited are to be left as we found them without touching the sites or dropping litter. We always advise guests to conserve the environment and not to smoke at the historical sites. Our local staff are prevented to smoke during work. All our modern air-conditioned minibuses are provided with bins for rubbish and have all been fitted with environmental filters to reduce carbon emissions. Our transportation manager regularly inspects the vehicles to ensure their cleanliness.

Concerning the social and environmental responsibility of the cruise, first of all, all the staff employed on the cruises are local. There is a continuous check from the Egyptian ministry of environment on all cruises in Egypt concerning environmental responsibility and the conservation of the River Nile.

During your visit to the historical sites of Luxor and Aswan, there is a souk (Bazaar) where you can interact directly with local people and buy there wares with the help of our local guides. During the trip, we give a brief description of Egypt from Pharaonic time until the time of the revolution in 1952. We also give out information about the Arabic language, local religions and appropriate dress (particularly for women).

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

Quality of the Egyptian guides - superb historical and local knowledge

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

Explain clearly what pace of trip you want - in hindsight we could have left out some places in Cairo to avoid long drives in traffic across the city. We would have focused on one or two places (such as the museum) and spent longer there.

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

It benefited local people but not the environment or conservation. Personally I would prefer not to take tours using animal rides and also suggest that the tour company ask clients to refill re-usable drinking bottles from a larger one that they keep in the minibus ( rather than handing out new small plastic water
bottles each day) this is true of all tours not just this operator!

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

It was superb, I travelled with my elderly Aunt who required a wheelchair and the operator provided excellent support and were extremely kind and patient.
