The trip.me way of travel
There is no continent on earth that can match Africa for diversity and adventure. This is a continent of such breathtaking scope that it's near impossible to sum up neatly in a few phrases. Our Africa tours introduce you to this vast continent and its extremes. Modern cities sit toe to toe with ancient tribes, while tranquil beaches lap at lands where the wilderness still calls the shots.
Simply put, Africa is an experience, and one you'll never become exhausted of.
Where to start with an Africa trip. An exploration of this scintillating continent will take you from vast desert landscapes to glacial mountain ridges all the way to bustling market towns lining the palm-fringed beaches.
Take a plunge into the history of Africa and visit the educational and somber slave trade museum on Accra's beachfront. A fascinating insight into the torturous past of Ghanaian's and in particular the dreaded door of no return.
After going back even further in time? Then travel back 4000 years to ancient Egypt and marvel at the Great Giza pyramids of Cairo before cruising the river Nile south towards the Valley of Kings in Luxor. Come face to face with the Sphinx and brave eerie mummified tombs, Egypt tours offer a unique experience that will enliven your adventurous side.
African safaris are the main driving factor behind tours of Africa, with some of the worlds greatest game reserves offering opportunities to see rare animals roaming in their natural environment. The African bush is such an alluring facet, it's no surprise why nature enthusiasts and adventure travelers from around the world make the trek to experience the invigorating African safaris.
The best safaris are widely considered to be in East Africa. The Kenya safaris and Tanzania safaris top the list of wild safaris in Africa, while trips to Botswana, Uganda, and South Africa are also beautiful experiences.
Furthermore, the attractive African mountain peaks are often regarded as some of the greatest climbing challenges and all-around life gains, therefore offering a dimension of Africa tours completely different to the multitude of other various attractions.
After your monumental climb up Mt Kilimanjaro or Mt Kenya, slip back into the relaxing dream world of idyllic, pristine beaches and dive into the marine world of the perfect turquoise waters.
Excellent, helped a lot to make my trip comfortable!
Amira expertly coordinated a somewhat complicated schedule having numerous destinations and multiple travelers from several locations joining the tour a different times! Amira was patient and professional as it took over 80 emails to agree upon a final itinerary. We were so impressed with her skills that we insisted upon meeting her during our stay in Cairo to personally thank her for her services.
We visited the following sites over 20 days in Egypt, Jordan and Israel: Cairo Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, Citadel with Mohamed Ali Mosque, Old Cairo, Abu Simbel, Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor, High Dam, Temple of Philae, Nubian Village, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Esna, Luxor, Luxor Hot Air Balloon, West Bank (Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut and Memmon temple), East Bank (Karnak & Luxor temples); Jordan: Jerash, Ajlun, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea; Israel/Palestine: Jerusalem Old and New City tours, Bethlehem, Tel Aviv, and Jaffa.
Our guides and drivers were personable and attentive especially to the needs of two travelers with mobility issues. The guides were punctual and masters of all related subjects.
Although we paid trip.me $140 each for the VIP crossing from Jordan to Israel at the Allenby Bridge, it still seemed a bit confusing especially when asked to pay an additional 15 JD each for the Jordanian departure tax even though Amira told us to expect this.
Only one disappointment: We opted out of the Pyramids Light Show for a dinner near the Pyramids, which was overpriced ($45 each) and mediocre with poor service.
Heike was awesome! She was super helpful, responsive to all my questions, making sure everything was arranged perfectly. All the places she chose for us to stay were amazing, and our trip was perfect thanks to her!
I can't thank Amira enough. From the moment I contacted her she has been amazing. Amira tailor made the holiday for me and every aspect was perfect. She answered all of my questions and gave advice to make my holiday perfect. I was very impressed with the service. Egypt has been one of my favourite holidays, the sites, hotels, restaurants, guides and transport was outstanding. I would definitely book with trip.me again.Read More Read More Less
Good planning, few flaws in the execution. Never received detailed itineraries ( sightseeing, regional flights schedules) which caused some confusion.
