“I travel a great deal and usually plan my own itinerary, however because Egypt's political situation and the language barrier, I decided to go with Tour East. I'm so glad I did!!! We had a positively delightful experience. This was the most historical, culturally varied and educational trip I've ever been on. I look forward to another experience with Tour East!"
