About this trip

Explore the temples and pyramids of Egypt… The sands of time have not yet swept away the antique remains in the land of the Pharaohs. On our 11-day, small group trip, you’ll step back in history to discover the mysticism of ancient Egypt, the secrets of the River Nile, the intricacies of the local culture, and so much more!


Cruise the Nile River: Glide on a riverboat for 4 days on one of the best boats on the Nile, a true 5-star cruise! 

No long transits: On this trip, we take our time and are not rushed from one attraction to the next; giving you time to rest and appreciate the antiquities of Egypt. 

A taste of local life: There's so much more to Egypt than the tombs and temples so let’s experience some off-the-beaten-track activities that will give you a glimpse into modern-day daily life in Egypt.

Reviews

Before signing up for the trip to Morocco, I read many reviews. This journey was unlike any other we have done in the last 10 years. Our guide Adil was extremely informational about his country, both the good and not so good stuff, helpful above and beyond his responsibility, and probably best of all kind and funny. Our group of 11 travelers were pretty much seasoned travelers, caring inquisitive people and helpful always to keep our days going as smoothly as possible. I was personally touched more than once when someone noticed I was struggling a bit. Greg and I were the oldest of the group but had traveled extensively before Covid. We were not quite prepared for the beauty of Morocco, truly amazing food and the sweetness (mostly) of people along the journey. Those that are trying to make a living by selling their goods are just part of trying to live. The 5 home visits (including Adil's) were the best and the evening in the Sahara were two of my most joyful times. We loved it all! Greg and I did get exhausted and if it were possible to get a bit more free time, that would have been appreciated but I'm aware that would have been hard with our schedule. I also need to thank Rebecca who was always there for help. Globe Drifters is a wonderful company. Whenever we travel I remember Mark Twain. He said "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." Greg and I are thankful to God for His amazing planet and blessed to be travelers of the world.

Excellent choices of locations and restaurants plus 5 home visits. Excellent tour guide. Comfortable coach. Felt safe and looked after throughout.

I had a good time. Turkey exceeded my expectations. Beautiful country with delicious food, wonderful people and we stayed at some amazing places. Sandy was an exceptional guide and went above and beyond what most guides would do. She was always available and whenever their were hiccups in the trip she made sure that everything got taken care of. Unfortunately, the local guide was not up to the job and she also had to step up and fill his shoes as well. I am sure that you will find a better one that is more suited for the job. I would highly recommend this tour!

The trip was well organized and we were able to experience all that Morocco has to offer. Our tour leader, Adil was very knowledgeable and he made the trip fun with his many stories and details about Moroccan culture.
