TOUR REVIEWS

The service from our tour guide Ahmed Aboudy was amazing. Many people from home warned me not to go to Egypt due to it's safety, however our tour guide made me feel safe and secure throughout the entire trip. I always felt as if he was looking out for us and being extremely protective of us. This made me feel safer and also reassured my parents back home when I informed them about all the safety precautions our tour guide was taking for us.
The only issue I had was with the hotel in Cairo. I really did not like how there were many men smoking heavily in the lobby area. Especially as it was often unavoidable as our meetings and gatherings were located in the front lobby on numerous occasions.

This trip was about the same price as competitors but Encounters included the transfers and many meals. Some people may prefer to travel in local buses and stay in small hotels, but Encounters offers a more luxurious experience. On long hot days, the air con on the coach kept me going and I was delighted to take a swim in the hotel pool. The guide was brilliant, funny and engaging and managed to squeeze in some bonus excursions too.
Turkey was much greener and more modern than I expected. The historic sites were impressive and the tour went at the right pace. The hotels were all good quality, in good locations and had some impressive buffets. Of course there are plenty of ancient ruins, but each tells a different story so there were plenty of wow factors. My only regret was not giving myself more time in Istanbul.

The responses were quick when I had a question and there was helpful suggestions along the way.
The tour guides were amazing! They really wanted to show off Morocco and its deep history. The one draw back was the food. It was not what I expected and I feel like we could have had better. Overall everything was great and I couldn't have been more happy with my experience.

I found your service very good but I think that you should provide a more personalised pre tour info email. Apart from that very good. I had a query which was responded to and resolved very quickly and efficiently.
The driver and guide on our tour were both excellent and my whole party very much enjoy the tour. The hotels are not very central which particularly in Marrakesh made free time sightseeing especially at night less appealing. That would be my suggestion to make it perfect but it was excellent overall.

The service was generally prompt and courteous with many details provided for the questions. The service was very good!
This tour program was excellent in value for the price. I would recommend to all who are interested in touring these countries. Tour guide and other staff were all friendly and responsible. Two thumbs up!

Egypt: Smooth sailing

We glide listlessly aside from a gentle about-turn each time we approach the river.

Nepal, more than just a mountain range

In Nepal

When I think about Nepal, the first thing that springs to mind is the image of a snow-covered Everest shooting into the sky with strings of multicoloured prayer flags.
