What Our Travellers Are Saying:

“I have traveled a lot independently and also with Overseas Adventure Travel; and while my previous experiences were excellent, Ancient Egypt Alive and Your Journey exceeded all expectations. Anna and Laura’s itinerary and attention to every detail made this trip outstanding. And the group of Canadians on the tour were the best travel companions ever. They were all well informed people as well as kind and helpful.”
