At first I was a bit nervous coming to Egypt but as soon as I was met at the airport in arrivals I was immediately comfortable. Would 100% recommend this tour and travelling to Egypt. Sam was amazing! Filled with an endless amount of knowledge and I thank you for that!! Thank you for this amazing experience.

Such an amazing experience. Wanted to visit Egypt since I was young and I was not disappointed. Sam was an awesome guide and the hotels were so comfortable. My advice is do everything you can, as the optional extras really do make for an even better experience, but if you’re on a budget just pick a few (Abu Simbel, The Nubian Dinner and Hot Air Ballooning are absolutely top picks). Only downside is that I had to go home!!

Amazing tour on the best of Balkans! Bojan was a great tour guide and Denny the driver made us feel so safe on the mountain roads. This is the best way to see the Balkans and I can’t recommend this tour highly enough! We saw everything we came here to see. I will be booking another one for next year!

Travel Talk was recommended to me by Point to Pointers and it did not disappoint. I had the best week of my life on my 'Sail Croatia' from Split to Dubrovnik with Dan. A big thank you to Dan who was an amazing tour guide and provided our group with awesome experiences!!I would recommend Travel Talk to anyone looking for an unforgettable week.

Just completed my first travel talk tour - ‘sail croatia’ and it was bloody unreal. One of the best weeks of my life. The boat was in great condition the crew, especially mummas cooking was phenomenal and our tour guide Dan went above and beyond to make our week the most fun and best value for money. Very glad that I went with travel talk for my sail week tour.

The best of Greece tour with Stefanos was absolutely amazing! He was such a wonderful tour leader and I can’t fault him one bit. No one had a bad word to say about him as he just went above and beyond to make sure all his group were happy and enjoying themselves. It was wonderful to be shown Greece by a guide who was passionate, knowledgeable, and so caring and I would 100% recommend this tour.

The Sail Dubrovnik-Split was amazing! The pirate ship was definitely worth the cramped bunks. Thrown in with a great bunch of people and Ash and Dan were perfect hosts to us all. Let us do as much or as little as we wanted and the rafting was a peaceful end to a manic week!

The Essential Jordan tour was absolutely fantastic. It was well-paced with enough free time as well as a good amount of cultural sites. It never felt too rushed, so we were allowed to enjoy each landmark/site we visited. The mix of travelers in our group was great, and our guide Osama was very approachable, knowledgable, and accessible. Would book with Travel Talk again!

Ashley and Dan were amazing hosts. Sailing Croatia on a pirate ship was an incredible experience! Dan's suggestion to go to Odysseus' Cove was the perfect idea and it was my highlight!

Our travel talk tour was extremely well organised. We had an amazing tour guide, Mustafa who was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to meet the needs of his tour group members. The members of the tour were also very easy to get along with and made the tour that much more enjoyable. The actual tour around Turkey had a great mix of learning about the history, sight seeing and some relaxation time too. We would highly rate this tour.

Itinerary

Cairo Cairo

Welcome to Egypt! At the Cairo terminal keep your eyes peeled for the Travel Talk sign for your transfer to the hotel. Freshen up and meet in the lobby around 6:00pm for an informal meeting with your guide and other tour members. Afterwards you have free time to start exploring vibrant Cairo or board a cruise for an optional group dinner.

Cairo City Tour, Luxor

Prepare your lenses for the breath-taking, world-famous Pyramids and the Sphinx at the Giza Plateau. Face all their 4,600-year glory and embrace the only remaining Ancient Wonder of the World. After everyone had their dose of awe, we head out to Sakkara for sightseeing. The first capital of ancient Egypt is famous for the step pyramid built in 2700 B.C. Later in the afternoon, board the bus to Luxor and check into our premium hotel by the Nile River.

Luxor, Aswan

After breakfast, depart for the vast Karnak Temple Complex, one of the most important religious centres of ancient Egypt with its marvellous Obelisk and temples. Your Egyptologist guide will enlighten you with the most intriguing stories and mythologies fuelling such creations for millennia. In the afternoon drive to Aswan for overnight stay.

Aswan

Time to explore Aswan, famed for its skilled artisans and the Unfinished Obelisk. Take a short motorboat ride to reach the Philae Temple, dedicated to the goddess Isis, the divine mother of the pharaohs. The temple is set beautifully on an island in the middle of the Nile. Early in the morning you can join the optional trip to the gorgeous Abu Simbel, an iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a must-do for all keen on history and mythology.

Daily Felucca cruise on the Nile

Time to relax and enjoy the cool breeze of the Nile. Jump on-board a traditional Felucca sailboat, bound for the Elephantine and Kitchener Islands on the Nile. After our river excursion, the rest of the day is yours to wander around Aswan as you wish.

Edfu, Kom Ombo, Luxor

A day full of amazing wonders and ancient beauties. Start off with a visit to the Kom Ombo Temple dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek. Next stop will be Edfu, home to one of the largest and best-preserved temples in Egypt. Dedicated to the falcon god Horus, the temple was built over 180-years from 237 BC to 57 BC. As you get your dose of marvel, ride to Luxor and check into the hotel. After a refreshing break, brace for the Luxor Temple, dedicated to the great god Amun. The temple was built on top of a smaller structure dating back to 14th century BC!

Luxor, Cairo

The West Bank of the Nile awaits with the incredible Valley of the Kings. Also known as “City of the Dead”, it's home to fancy royal tombs carved into desert rocks and filled with treasures for the Pharaoh afterlife. As you’d expect, here lied the famous mummy of Tutankhamun III. Rising out of the desert plain in a series of terraces, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut is the next stop. As you try to break the spell of ancient wonders, drive to Cairo for overnight stay.

Cairo City Tour

The journey continues with one of the most important museums dedicated to the ancient world. Egyptian Museum of Cairo houses around 120,000 ancient Egyptian relics and antiquities. Then roam around Cairo stopping by the Citadel of Saladin, Mosque of Mohammed Ali, the Hanging Church and the world-famous Khan el-Khalili bazaar. Make sure to wear your haggling hats and brace for the mayhem!

Cairo

Have your final breakfast on us and start bidding farewells to your travel mates. Check-out of the hotel in Cairo (11:00 am) and catch the transfer to the airport at the end of your tour. Time to start counting days for your next adventure with Travel Talk!
