Very nice to have "hand holds" throughout, especially at Egyptian airports and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
Fantastic tours and guides with good knowledge - the holiday does go at a pace however, to get everything in - no lie-ins if you really want to see everything! Egypt is a place I wouldn't really want to negotiate/navigate through on my own - Encounters saved a LOT of time and stress.
Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Great tour company, would 100% recommend this tour to other. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!
Very efficient, helpful and knowledgeable tour leaders and guides, we learnthink alot!! Loved.our tour, we wished we had booked a longer tour though as we loved Egypt so much! Would 100% recommend this tour to others. Felt safe in Egypt the whole time!
The booking process was easy and simple
My only complaint was that the first hotel we stayed at in Jordan, the JAD Hotel was not the hotel in the itinerary. It was supposed to be the Imperial Palace, which looked like a substantially better hotel
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
Encounters was very professional and made sure we were happy throughout our tour. Sheriff, our tour guide, was amazing - he went out of his way for us several times. He is an expert guide with tons of knowledge. My wife and I had a great time thanks to the people at Encounters Travel.
My wife and I had limited time so the 9-day tour seemed perfect. I still can't believe how many sites we were able to see and activities we were able to experience. Sheriff's knowledge of Egyptian history and sense of humor made this trip informative and fun. We did many of the add-ons so the schedule was hectic, but that's how we like to travel when our time is limited. I especially recommend the hot air balloon and Abu Simbel!
