Reviews

This trip was beyond my expectations. A wonderful experience. I would highly recommend traveling with Bucket List Travel.
A very special thank you to our guide to beautiful Egypt and its’ amazing history, Yasser Omar. In 10 days, he quickly became part of the family and a friend forever. Thank you to Annie Emanuelli who helped arrange this magical trip for us and is highly recommended. The people of Egypt are such a wonderful and welcoming culture. It was quite the compliment to be welcomed over and over to Egypt, “welcome to Egypt miss”, with a smiling request for a picture with them from time to time. The history of this country truly ties all that you know about the world together. From measurement and numbering systems, to the medical devices we use today, you find these influences carved on the walls in ancient Egypt dating back 4000+ years ago. Having traveled for years, this bucket list trip was truly set apart by the amazing service of this team. Highly, highly, highly recommended. If you’ve been looking for a travel company or unsure of how to best see Egypt, this is the company you want to go with. Service and experience can not be matched.
Annie Emanuelli always provides great trips and pays attention to every detail. Her trip to Africa is jam packed with great experiences, memorable moments and tons of wildlife sightings. She choose great places to stay and excellent restaurants, a trip I will treasure!!

I just returned from a once in a lifetime trip to Cairo organized by Bucket List Travel. Annie took care of every detail of planning, and it really showed when I got off the plane and was taken care of from start to finish with the greatest care. Our guide Yasser was kind, professional, knowledgeable, and funny! He went above and beyond to ensure every need was met and we got the most out of each day in Egypt. I always felt safe and loved experiencing local life and culture. I plan to grab my friends and book again with Bucket List Travel!
