What Guests Are Saying...

The Dahabiya excursion was an incredible treat and something every tour should include. The crew was exceptional. The chef was also incredible, offering a huge variety of delicious meals. It was so clear that we were getting an amazing, unique experience, unlike most other people, when we saw the giant commercial riverboats flying past us on the Nile. Our experience was relaxed, personal and gave us time to soak up what we were seeing as we took our time along the river.

The trip was well planned, accommodations & tours were very good, enjoyable & we all learned a great deal. Wonderful trip, a fun time, excellent accommodations, and interesting places with well-versed explanations and descriptions. Our guides were knowledgeable and very approachable. I will seek out another Orbridge Trip and I will relate the experience to my Friends & fellow travelers.

Everything was wonderful from beginning to end. I already miss this exceptional trip.

This journey was first class in every way. We definitely had the A+ team... they got us to sites early so we could avoid the heat and crowds or at off-times so we rarely had to wait for anything. Our transport was always awaiting us; our rooms were assigned and ready when we arrived at our hotels and our luggage was awaiting us in our rooms on arrival and picked up outside our doors when we left. We were taken to sites that many companies skip because they are off the beaten track or involve booking a plane. Everything, every day flowed easily for us. Our Travel Director and guides were always smiling, watching out for us and making sure we were happy, comfortable and enjoying our trip. The entire Egypt team and Orbridge is to be commended. I thank you all for making my childhood/teenage Egypt dream come true.

What can I say? I had read and studied about Egypt for years. I had extremely high expectations and they all were surpassed. I loved everything we did and the kindnesses shown to us by our guides. Even on very busy (and days with early starts) I was thrilled to see so much and to learn from our guides. They did a great job pacing us---bus rides or meals to give us time to rejuvenate on busy days. Thanks to this amazing itinerary and special features added by our Egypt team, I "saw it all."

It was an amazing trip—one I have wanted to do forever. I selected Orbridge because it was partnered with my alumni association and because the hotels, itinerary and especially the dahabiya were what I would have selected. All were fantastic! The guides really made the trip and we felt safe at all times. We will highly recommend your tours to friends and family and hope to travel with you again soon.

From the time of booking until we landed back in the US, this was an amazing experience. It might be the best trip we have ever taken—stimulating but not stodgy, engaging and knowledgeable guides, marvelous and historic accommodations... simply the best.

This was the third time we have travelled with Orbridge and by far the best trip yet. It far exceeded our expectations for accommodations, food, adventure, education and fun.

What made this trip such a smashing success were the knowledge, kindness and attention by our guides who made sure that everything down to the smallest details were planned and cared for.

The itinerary was cleverly planned with go-go site seeing punctuated with periods or rest (i.e. 5 star hotels and river cruise) and reflection on what we had seen.

Wow!!! The things we saw. At each ancient site we were conveyed back in time through the expert narration and storytelling of our professional Egyptologists, guides and companions.

I will recommend this trip to everyone. Already, I have a number of friends who are considering Egypt and Jordan as their next travel destination.

Thanks to the Orbridge travel team.

All the details were perfectly planned. The accommodations were wonderful.

I can't say enough about both of our Egyptologists. They made the trip. They were very knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge with us. Without them, seeing all the sites would have been meaningless.

–Anne M., Oregon City, OR

Our guides really made for the perfect trip. The small group nature of the tour and the fact that we did site visits when few other tourists were there was a real bonus. I loved the dahabiya trip.
