This was an amazing adventure - we had an extremely knowledgeable guide who also has a great personality and a professional demeanor as well as a great sense of humor. Spending 4 days in the Western Desert visiting 4 Oases was fascinating; spending a night in a tent (no roads in or out; just sand as far as you can see) was an unforgettable experience. Bedouins drove the 4X4's up and down dunes and across literally 'trackless' desert. Tombs, Temples, Oases, Desert, great traveling companions (there were only 12 of us), what more can one ask for?

If you think you might like to go to Egype, go as soon as possible. This trip exceeded our expectations in every way. The guide Mohammed Ali is truly amazing - professional, knowledgeable, interesting, kind and he really enabled us to know and understand this wonderful country and civilization. Go now while the crowds are smaller - you won't be sorry.

In my view, it would be hard to improve upon The Egyptian Odyssey tour. Our guide, Mohammed Ali, the itinerary, tour support staff, accommodations, meals and overall organization were fabulous! An added bonus was an exceptionally compatible and congenial group of tour participants, and a group size of only 12. Mohammed Ali is extremely knowledgeable about Egypt, its human history, natural history, culture and politics. He is also well skilled (with a strong sense of humor) in herding cats (the group) and responding to the needs and interests of each member of his tour. As an introduction to a country with such an extraordinary depth and breadth of history and culture, this tour would be hard to beat.
