I would be pleased to share our experiences with Traveland-Egypt with you.
First, my wife and I are Canadians living in Egypt. We have been here for over three years. I was first introduced to Traveland by colleagues shortly after my arrival and have, for the most part, continue to use their services.
A collection of experiences include:
Luxor, Alexandria Trip Dahab, Sinai Istanbul, Turkey India (Golden Triangle), Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket) Safari to Kenya and Tanzania (for ourselves and later for visiting friends from Canada, including return tickets from Canada) Mombasa, Kenya Extensive travel for my sons and daughter-in-law from Canada to Egypt (including Nile Cruise) Sharm El Sheikh, Sinai Stop off at Paris from Canada to Cairo Jordan trip Hurghada, Red Sea Upcoming trip to Greece and the Island in the summer of 2008
I’m sure there are others that have slipped my mind at this point.
In the majority of cases flights, hotels, and tours have been arranged by Traveland. The attention to detail by Lesley has been superb.
Perhaps the best example of trouble shooting was in our Safari Trip to Kenya and Tanzania. Due to heavy rains we were unable to travel from Masa Mara to the Serengeti. Roads through the parks were washed out and we were forced to re- route to Nairobi, travel to Arusha then into the Norongora region. Through our driver’s contact with his company, Twiga Tours, and they in turn contact with and support from Lesley, where able to make this diversion with expenses covered, although we did not have insurance for this. I would consider travel insurance back-up another time but with Lesley’s insistence, the travel operators covered the problem.
We have had no concerns in dealing with Traveland. They are aware of our travel patterns, our preferred ‘fuzzies’ when traveling and cater to our tastes and requests, as complicated, simple and/or anal as they can tend to be.
To be honest with you, we have become reliant on their service. We simply outline our requests with Lesley and often with suggested modifications for the best from Lesley we feel comfortable in getting on with our travel. We have never been disappointed with Lesley’s suggestions or service, and plan to continue with Traveland as our primary travel provider.
If you have additional questions or queries please feel free to contact me.
Happy traveling! Best Regards,
Dear Marianna Michelle
Our Holiday was fantastic thanks to you! The sites were incredible, we were able to rest in the afternoon and venture out in the evenings. The transport and drivers were first class, the guides were helpful and informative, the best of which was Sayed Kamel in Luxor who explained everything very clearly and was able to answer all of our questions. Your Luxor Representative, Hassan, was very efficient and friendly.
The staff in both hotels were lovely and I hope you will pass on our thanks! Maybe you could arrange our holiday next year to Petra in Jordan?
Once again Many thanks Tamsie Fowler
First I want to thank you,
I should have written this e-mail as soon as I came back but I’m sorry because I was busy with family and work.
Second, I would like to express some feelings about that trip.
At the beginning when I booked the trip I was so worried, going for 4 days alone with strangers, what if I don’t like them, what if they didn’t like me??
Then finally I told myself, no problem, I’m going to see new places that I’ve never seen before , the group should not bother me.
The trip started in the arranged time and place, then, blessings started to fall.
Two young men full of integrity (the tour leader and the tour guide) + a decent driver who knows how to do it right + an English couple who were like a sister and brother all the time.
To cut it short, I thought I’m going with strangers and it ended up being with family.
I want to come-up with a mistake or disadvantage but I couldn’t find any.
A trip full of spiritual input, very well organized, comfortable to the maximum extent with a group of people that I will never forget.
Thank u soooo much, till we meet again in another trip

Just returned form a 12 days journey in Egypt with Traveland .I feel oblige to give some feedback .An incredible dream are the only words that can define this trip with Traveland.
The hotel complex was very clean , with a devoted staff. Even the meals were adapted to our customs.
We visited Memphis & Gizeh Pyramids plus so many temples sites ( Karnak,Luxor,Edfu, even the valley of the kings )with competent guides Aziz and Dahlia our guides for this tour,.Aziz being a Egyptologist and archeologist was a deligth by itself.
what a pleasure to learn about this great civilisation, cradle of humanity. No words can describe the magnificence of these temples ….
We had a meal at the Via Vento restaurant owned by Tarek Omar Shariff son of the renowned actor …A paradise environment !
The cruise on the Nile was a mix of leisure and feast for the eyes . Every curve reserves a surprise .The panoramic view is unspeakable .Even the meals onboard are delicious .»The staff is courteous and kind to all passengers….
If you feel your life is turning dull feeling ,wait that you live the 2 days desert trip ….
2 complete days of disorientation ! Panoramics are indescriptible …..Nature at its best ! Surf a sand dune ,Look around at all these gigantics monolyths that change colour at sunset or sundown ! The bedouins are absolutely nice to hang with ;they played deligthfull local music every night.we slept one night in an Oasis with all the commodities and one night in open air in the desert ….What a special moment
This trip changed our lives ,
Thanks Traveland ( Mariana , James ,Richela ) we will never forget you
Suite a notre retour d`un périple en Égypte avec Traveland, je me dois de faire un compte rendu. 12 jours de rève ; seul et unique facon de résumer …Traveland étant l`agence qui nous prit en charge tout au long de notre séjour .
Complexe hotelier tres propre ,personnel gentil , acceuillant et courtois. Nourriture tres adapté a nos coutumes, succulent!
Visite des pyramides et des temples a Memphis et Le Caire (Gizeh) accompagné de guides chevronnés :Aziz et Dalhia ! Aziz étant de plus un Égyptologue et Archéologue tres doué !
Quel suave plaisir de connaitre cette grande civilisation berceau de l`humanité ….
Nous avons pris un repas au restaurant Via Verto propriété de Tarek Omar Shariff fils du célebre acteur …délicieux et ds un environnement ydillique …
La croisire sur le Nil fut un mélange de repos et de festin pour les yeux. les paysages qui défilent sous nos yeux sont d`une beauté remarquable .L`estomac ne fut pas en reste non plus car les chefs nous surprenaient par leur adresse ,tellement la nourriture était délicieuse .Le personnel est d`une gentillesse remarquable …
Si vous etes blasés de la vie routiniere , le périple de deux jours ds le désert est un incontournable ,des panoramas a couper le souffle ,ainsi que des bédouins charmants qui le soir venu, se transforment en musiciens. Quel changement avec notre vie sédentaire. Une nuit ds un Oasis incluant toutes les commodités ainsi qu`une nuit en plein désert a la belle étoile , simplement féérique ….
