      With the assistance of the boots on the ground Egyptian team, Maximum Impact Travel executed a perfectly curated travel itinerary with just the right amount of activities each day. The Fairmount Hotel Cairo upgrade was an added bonus.
      By Tracy R. B for Pastor Dee & Ariel - Dunamis Woman in Egypt - Apr 26-May 5, 2024 on May 16, 2024
      I usually do not give reviews but this journey to Egypt was something that I could not have imagined. The preplanning and the information that was received prior to leaving the USA was 100% on point and useful. The way all information was disseminated to all traveler's was stellar. No time during my travel did I ever feel unsafe or in harms way. The boots on the ground at every part of the trip was amazing. From the airport arrivals to the hotel to the cruise ship to all the departures - never once missing a beat! It runs like a swiss watch - never needing winding and always available to you. I would be remiss if I also did not call out Prince - the Egyptologist who has taught me so much that I thought I already knew, but didn't. But to the man behind Maximum Impact - Jay - you run a top class organization. I am thankful that Maximum Impact and Dunamis Woman have collaborated on this journey and I look forward to many more journeys. Susanna Bendel

      Trip of a Lifetime, EGYPT in the month of APRIL 2024 TO MAY 5TH 2024 was truly an unforgettable & amazing experience with Maximum Impact Travel and Memphis Tours. From the beginning - my arrival in Cairo and meeting Amgad upon landing, he was extremely helpful and seamlessly navigated our group with obtaining the required VISA, baggage claim, clearing customs, and ground transportation to the Luxury Hotel in Cairo. Special handling of luggage was taken by Amgad to ensure we received all luggage upon checking into the Hotel after lunch in Cairo. Our Egyptologist tour guide, Ahmed, BKA “Prince”, took great care of all of our needs to ensure we learned the truth about Kemet - Our History/Egyptian History and gave us 1st class exploration of the ancient wonders in Egypt and along the Nile through the stop in Aswan, every aspect of the trip was curated to offer a remarkable cultural and historical experience. Everything from the food, accommodations and sites was top notch. I left Egypt with a greater appreciation of our culture. THANK YOU FOR MIT for this amazing experience!!!

      I recently embarked on an unforgettable journey to Egypt with the Dunamis Women led by Pastor Dee and Ariel, arranged by the Maximum Impact Team, and it exceeded all expectations. From the moment we landed in Cairo to our exploration of the ancient wonders along the Nile through the stop in Aswan, every aspect of the trip was meticulously curated to offer a profound cultural and historical experience. One of the highlights was undoubtedly our visit to the Nubian village, where we were warmly welcomed into the heart of this vibrant community. Immersing ourselves in their traditions, cuisine, and daily life provided invaluable insights into Nubian culture, adding a layer of depth to our understanding of Egypt's rich heritage. Throughout the journey, our knowledgeable guide Prince, shared captivating stories and historical anecdotes, enriching my appreciation for the iconic sites such as the Pyramids of Giza, Karnak Temple, and Luxor's Valley of the Kings. Prince truly left his mark on my consciousness and challenged me to see myself in ways I hadn't previously contemplated. Maximum Impact's attention to detail was evident in every aspect of the trip, from seamless logistics to carefully selected accommodations that provided both comfort and authenticity. The itinerary struck a perfect balance between structured tours and leisure time, allowing us to savor each destination at our own pace. Many thanks to Jay Cameron for personally making ensuring everything went smoothly and chronicling the experience with brilliant photos and videos. In addition to the cultural immersion, the trip fostered lasting connections for me with the Dunamis community especially the other brothers that made the trip. We undoubtedly share a passion for exploration and discovery. Our spirited discussions over traditional Egyptian meals and attire to planned adventures in the bustling marketplaces and the camaraderie enhanced the overall experience. In conclusion, my journey with Maximum Impact was nothing short of transformative. It not only deepened my appreciation for Egypt's unparalleled treasures but also left me with cherished memories and newfound knowledge that will resonate for years to come. For anyone seeking an enriching exploration of Egypt's culture and history, I wholeheartedly recommend Maximum Impact as the ultimate guide to unlocking the mysteries of this mesmerizing land.

      I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. To some degree I felt like I was in an episode of the Life of the Rich & Famous. Every care and concern was addressed promptly. Jay, the owner of Maximum Impact traveled with us and helped to ensure no one was left behind and everyone had an opportunity to participate if that was their choice. Our tour guide Prince was attentive to the needs and concerns of the group and went over and beyond to make us feel welcome. He possessed and shared his vast knowledge of all that we saw. They both went out of the way to provide a memorable experience.

      I had the absolute privilege of joining the Gateway Experience Ghana, July 2022. There's only one word to describe it - TRANSFORMATIVE. Jay has done the work and created a truly phenomenal travel experience. Because of his efforts, I connected with the ancestors, with Ghanaians, with Africans and with myself. I fell in love with Ghana and am now planning to move there. Jay and his local team - the incomparable Morris and the loyal Ernest - took care of every detail and provided a trip that was informative, enjoyable and safe. I don't think I could have that experience with any other tour operator. From now on, I will only travel with Jay and Maximum Impact when I visit any place in Africa. In fact, my group and I are planning to travel together again to Tanzania next year. It's just that deep. If you love Black people and Blackness, then love yourself by booking a trip with Maximum Impact!

      Customer service exceptional! What a pleasure to work with Maximum Impact Travel for this trip. They are thorough and very attentive as there are several steps to traveling to Ghana; the entire Maximum Impact team made the booking process seamless with EASY-to-follow instructions. All questions I had were answered promptly and professionally. And, oh my goodness, once you get to Ghana, you will be warmly received by the Maximum Impact team and treated like a V.I.P. Accommodations are clean and super-comfortable and offer all amenities. Don’t hesitate booking the trip if you’re traveling solo as I was. It’s a trip of a lifetime where you will meet wonderful traveling companions, tour the country with knowledgeable guides and wish that the trip was longer. I LOVED IT! A powerful and stirring cultural tour that also includes fun-loving activities. Outstanding job by Maximum Impact. I’m already planning my next tour with you.
