Absolutely loved this vacation! The price was extremely reasonable and included so much! The hotels were luxurious, the scheduling very well done and the guides made our vacation amazing, specially Hany, the way he explained all the facts and the mythology transported us to ancient Egypt. This was a magical vacation that we will never forget. Big Kudos to your company for making it happen.

How well the tour company and all of Egypt took care of us and made us feel safe and welcome. It's hard to choose a favorite activity. Every site was so incredible to see.

My family and I had such a great time visiting Egypt. The country itself was incredible, and our tour guide, Islam, made the experience so much more enjoyable. Islam was full of knowledge - he was so great at explaining the history of each site we visited and answered all of our questions. We learnt so much and also laughed so much with him! Islam also took such great care of us throughout our stay - he made sure everything ran smoothly and that we were always comfortable and happy. Such an awesome tour guide! We were also able to meet another amazing guide during our stay in Hurghada - King Mo. He also took great care of us and taught us so much. We had so many fun moments with him. The country of Egypt is incredible and I still can't stop thinking about it, 2 months after returning home. Encounters Travel have organised such a great tour here, with really awesome tour guides. It's definitely a trip of a lifetime. So much culture and history here that you definitely need to experience!

At first we were nervous go to Egypt for vacation. After a couple days,we felt so safe in Egypt.Every hotels we stayed were truely international 5-stars standard,exceeding my expectation.We love the experience that sleep on the Felucca. Hahaha for one night is good enough, more than that is too much .We went visiting many countries in Europe and Asia,but Egypt is the most interesting country that we spent our leisure time there.My sister and her family visited Egypt a few years ago.By comparison with their tour,I think ENCOUNTER travel tour is better.
