What our customers have to say...

Our guide for the week, Ahmed, was FABULOUS! The best guide we've had in our four trips with you: he was great with the children; took us to some fabulous places to eat in the eveings; taught us how to barter in the bazaars and made sure the adults got some quality 'R & R' time too!  FEA 25 October 2009

Ahmed, our tour leader, was one of the highlights of the trip.  FEA 25 October 2009

Fantastic - could not have been any better in any respect.  FEA 25 October 2009

Our guide, Ahmed (Bedouin) was also a highlight!  He was delightful - very efficient and friendly and the children thought he was wonderful. On our felucca trip he took the 8 children in one felucca while we grownups were in the other. He entertained the children all day with games - they were happy as can be!  FEA 25 October 2009

When one of the party was ill Ahmed was very helpful and willing to put himself out to help.  When she could not go on an excusion we had paid for he did all he could to get her money back. He was excellent at organizing the childern and playing.  The loacl guides were also very good.  Especially Mahommed for the Old Cairo tour.  he said it was the first time he had worked for the Adventure Company.  He had excellent English, good knowledge and a friendly personality.  He was also good with children.  FEA 25 October 2009

Excellent tour guide who had a fantastic relationship with both the children and adults in our group, he managed all adventures brilliantly - everything worked like clockwork.  FEA 25 October 2009
