FAVOURITE PLACES VISITED
"It was a dream to visit Egypt so I have achieved my goal to see first-hand the work of the Ancient Egyptians. There are many highlights, too many to put in an order of preference as each day my mind was blown away by yet another amazing site. The Great Pyramids, the Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, The Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the trip to Alexandria and so on was equally amazing. I could write more. I would like to go again and bring my family to witness the greatness of these Ancient people"
"Abu Simbel and Luxor Temple was like walking with giants. Incredible experience. The research I did online did not give the same feeling as witnessing this with your own eyes. Seeing is truly believing. I would recommend this tour to all. It was excellent value"
"My favourite place that I visited was Valley of the Kings. I got very emotional when I visited the tombs. I started crying upon exiting the very first tomb. I was just in complete awe. I found it all very emotional, overwhelming and magnificent. I felt so proud and humbled"
"The Valley of the Kings, entering the tombs and analysing the carvings and artwork- awesome!"
"I enjoyed Abu Simbel Temple despite the early start in the morning. The sites were amazing. This reinforced to me that the Egyptians were extremely intelligent and very creative people. The statues were gigantic"
"An amazing opportunity to see the main sites of Egypt"
"As a first ambassador of this tour, I am very privileged to be part of this group. I have had a wonderful and beautiful holiday, experienced so much and met great people"

"Fun filled, active and engaging. Just what I expected from this tour"
"I have thoroughly enjoyed this trip and considering doing it all again next year. I loved meeting new people and seeing Egypt in a different way from my first time before 5 years ago. I will be reading up on all the different sites visited to help cement what I have learned"
"The Egypt tour with Black History Study Tours and Timeless Tours has given me an introduction to Egyptian history. Although the itinerary was busy, it was worth it to see the sites that we have seen. I have been amazed and proud at the scale of the achievements of the Ancient Egyptians"
