Travelling with a local operator

This holiday is operated by a company based in the holiday destination and they will be able to provide expert local knowledge. They will be able to tailor make your holiday to suit your requirements not only concerning the dates of travel but also typically the standard of accommodation, and thus price. It is rare for local operators to be able to help with the booking of your flights.

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.

Environment
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.

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.

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. Moreover; 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.

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. 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).
