Incredible Experience I have recently completed a 10 day tour of Egypt, Cairo and a Nile Cruise with my 2 sisters and a friend (4 women) and it was mind blowing. Our guide in Cairo, Ahmed was knowledgeable, kind and accommodating and allowed us to tweak some of our tour sites as we wanted to shop a little, maybe a lot! The Nile cruise ship was fantastic, the staff could not do enough for us, the cabins spacious and comfortable and our guide was fun, patient, knowledgeable, honest and intuitive. Once again we felt safe and well taken care of the entire trip. Highly recommend.
More about this tour
From the island of Korčula in the northwest to the dreamy plains of Konavle in the southeast, this is a region to be savoured by beach seekers, wine lovers and history buffs alike.
Yet one location understandably eclipses any discussion of Southern Dalmatia: the remarkable old town of Dubrovnik. Ringed by mighty defensive walls that dip their feet in the cerulean sea, the city encapsulates the very essence of a medieval Mediterranean fantasy. Dubrovnik is simply unique; its beauty is bewitching, its setting sublime. Thousands of visitors walk along its marble streets every day, gazing, gasping and happily snapping away.
When Dubrovnik's tourist scrum threatens to overwhelm, a reinvigorating balm is but a quick boat or bus ride away. Refresh yourself on the shady paths of Trsteno Arboretum or, if that doesn't do the trick, the divine wine and oysters of the sparsely populated Pelješac Peninsula surely will.
