It was amazing. The guides were great and really added to the experience. I will never forget them or the experience. Thank you so much for such a great time. I will always try and travel using these tours.

The trip is divided into two very different weeks. During my stay in Egypt, I was always accompanied by my guide and driver, who ensured I had a great time visiting the different sites while learning a lot about Egyptian history. I was also supported during the check-in at the different airports. All the staff is reliable, friendly and they are very client-oriented. The hotels were fantastic. Unfortunately, the Nile cruise was rather old but clean. During the second week in Jordan, I was accompanied by my driver, Moayad. I had a guide only in Jerash and Petra which were ok. Moayad was friendly, accommodating, and caring and he ensured we reached all the sites safely and on time. He was also explaining things along the way. I highly recommend this tour, especially for solo travelers.

Amazing tour, we've seen almost everything, with a very professional local guide. Good hotels, perfect organization, and enough free time to see what you want. Best Explore tour is done.

Did an amazing tour across Egypt and Jordan! ! Dahab was a highlight! The blue hole there was fantastic do not miss out! Jordan was cool as well but loved Egypt more! Petra was amazing but full on, bring appropriate shoes as you will be walking 20km round trip just there! Amazing time with amazing people!

This was an amazing trip . We felt we got a lot of value for the price. Some of the hotels were iffy though. I got hurt on the Red Sea snorkeling, and it wasn’t part of the tour I was told. I hurt my knee and will need an MRI here at home. We were well taken care of and protected. Wondering already about a trip for next year. Is there a discount?

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our 11-day tour of Egypt and Jordan. This exceeded our expectations by far!!! I especially would like to commend the drivers and guides provided, especially Ahmed and Ibrahim in Egypt and Mohamad in Jordan. They took such good care of us that I will most certainly recommend this trip to my friends. Thank you so much again.

Just a quick note to say that we had a great time in Egypt and Jordan. These are 2 very amazing countries with very friendly people everywhere we went. The extra camel ride at sunset to the Pyramids was fantastic. A much better view of such a special place.

Egypt and Jordan. Spectacular! We felt that we were treated so wonderfully. We were well cared for.
May 13 ,2021
This tour, planned at the last minute for us, far surpassed our expectations. We got to see almost every site we had hoped to see, and our tour guide Michael was amazing - his knowledge and experience made the entire tour fun and educational at the same time. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who has never been to Israel & Jordan or who wants to learn about the most important cities and places in the country.
Jan 28 ,2021
I enjoyed every aspect of my trip. The tour guides knew their history and articulated the historical details of each site that we visited very well. The hotels in which we stayed were clean, spacious, and comfortable. There also was more than enough food for everyone and it tasted good.

I cannot recommend this Egypt tour enough. As a travel destination, Egypt is exciting, interesting, and inspirational- people were friendly and I felt safe the whole time and would happily go back. The tour was organized, and efficient, and while offering autonomy to do your own thing [could make decisions to stay at sites longer]. The itinerary (and guides) made you not want to miss any of the activities.

This was a fantastic trip. I loved Jordan. The Guide was excellent and had everything perfectly organized. The food was amazing, and the hotels were nice. Petra was unforgettable. Hiking boots are a good idea. The weather was hot in the middle of the day and quite cold at the beginning and end of the day. (T-shirts, with lots of layers, and a coat required, for December trips.) I have done several trips with the tour operator and would thoroughly recommend this one.

From start to finish this tour was very well organised and delivered. We were met by two travel agency staff inside the airport in Cairo to assist us through the customs department and then onto the bus to take us to the hotel where we met up with our experienced Travel Guide. The tours to each and every wonderful sight were full of detail and while I think I already knew a lot about ancient Egypt. Our cruise was the highlight, being able to relax and enjoy the varied scenery along the Nile. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone over 10 yrs old.
Feb 24 ,2020
I loved every moment of this trip. Jordan is a country full of great sights and great people - lots of variety. Hard to know what was the best bit - Petra featured highly as did Wadi Rum but then so did Jerash. Tour guide gets it exactly right - gentle and guiding leadership with expert knowledge of the history, archaeology, and culture of his amazing country.
Feb 19 ,2020
We accomplished everything we wanted to and more during this trip. The guides all bent over backward to make sure we were happy and completely satisfied. The tour became family and we plan to travel together again. We are already planning a trip back to Egypt.
Jan 06 ,2020
This was an excellent holiday - well organized, a good mixed variety of activities and sights, not overly much traveling, good hotels and the leader took us to nice restaurants. And in particular, I liked the 'free time' element given at the actual sights not provided as these lame ' a free afternoon in your hotel' business when it's difficult to access the places you want to see

I traveled with my 12-year-old daughter. The agency made our trip as comfortable as possible. They were always responsive to any questions, feedback, or inquiries; any slight problems we were facing, the agency made sure to address them immediately. The tour guides and drivers in Egypt, Jordan & Israel were like family - prompt, reliable, and thoughtful. We felt safe under their watch. They went above and beyond their call of duty to make sure we were well taken care of. They didn't look at their watches or their designated duties and squabble with our little requests.
Dec 05 ,2019
Overall it was a fantastic trip for us. A special thanks to the staff for remembering my birthday and ordering a delicious cake to be delivered onto the boat on the red sea. As always, Explore never disappoints!
Dec 03 ,2019
An amazing week with fabulous people and a great guide. The trip is planned to take you through that gentle build-up of activity on the first and second day to the much more strenuous exertion of days 4,5 & to a lesser degree day 6, before bringing you back down to the more restful experience of swimming/snorkeling in the Red Sea then floating and mud bathing at the Dead Sea.
Nov 03 ,2019
Knowledgeable, experienced, knew what the group might need ahead of time, handled lost group members quickly and efficiently, and easy to understand. Assisted everyone with their various post-trip transportation needs - gave us excellent advice on the best way to get to, cross the border, and continue on to Jerusalem with public transportation.

A great itinerary with a couple of weeks could improve the Jordan experience.
May 06 ,2019
Our Best of Egypt, Jordan and Israel tour is an amazing, lifetime experience. Egypt was beyond awesome. This tour far exceeded all our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyable in every aspect. There were absolutely no hitches or setbacks for the entire duration of the tour starting in Cairo and ending in Tel Aviv. It was smooth sailing from beginning to end. Representatives from the company promptly met us on arrival and assisted us all the way through from acquiring our visas to welcoming us to the hotel and briefing us accordingly. Likewise, similar courtesies were also extended to us through Jordan and Israel by their resident tour companies. All internal flight arrangements were also expertly handled. The 4 day Nile River cruise on the Sonesta Star Goddess was awe-inspiring. Similarly thanks to those staff who were excellent in leading us through Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

We just returned from a family trip to Egypt and Jordan. All our guides were outstanding. I didn’t like Mazayen camp, especially the bathroom needs some updates We enjoyed everything else, and wish we stayed longer .. thank you
