Had a great experience on Encounters Travel "Discover Egypt" tour. Small group, everyone very friendly. Excellent guides (Big Mo and Sherif). All hotels were very nice. It is an active trip, but you see all the main sites and monuments in Egypt.

Hi there Janet, Thanks for reaching out! I think the best way to answer would be to first find out in which country the 10 day tour is as this will help us to give you the most accurate information? Thanks Dan
