Highlight reel: traveler reviews and photos from Egypt and Jordan

Feb 05, 2020 by Jamie Gallerani

History, staggering architecture, welcoming locals—Egypt and Jordan have it all, and we can prove it. Scroll down to see the reviews and snapshots our travelers posted after being wowed on our tour, Egypt & the Nile with Jordan extension.


The cherry on top? The Jordan extension!

“I had a fabulous time on this trip. The extension is truly what made the whole trip for me. I never knew there was so much to see inside of Petra besides the Treasury. I hiked SO MUCH. I thoroughly enjoyed Egypt with my group. ...”

A+ Tour Director

“Egypt is a part of history everyone should see. My visit was exceptional. The guide was knowledgable, caring and very helpful to all the tour members. ... For my time in Jordan, I enjoyed Petra and the Dead Sea. ...”

Childhood dreams come true

“WOW!!!!! What an experience this Egypt adventure was. As a child I could only dream of seeing all the ancient history of that mystical country but now after seeing and living it firsthand I must say to all who have not yet gone....GO AHEAD to Egypt! ... I did the Jordan extension mainly to see Petra and it did not disappoint. This was tour number six with Go Ahead and I have been pleased with every tour they have provided me.”

“Speechless” is an understatement

“This was a fabulous tour! Our tour director arranged for us to go into the great pyramid, which was beyond words. This is a faster paced tour but you’ll definitely see so much! ... the rest of the tour and the Jordan extension were great. The dinner at the local family’s home was my favorite! ...”

All the major sites—and more

“This trip was really amazing, showing you all of the major sites that you would want to see when visiting Egypt and Jordan. First of all, I HIGHLY recommend going on the extension to Jordan if you can, because Petra and the Dead Sea were incredible. ...”

Good people = the best trip ever

“This was the best trip that I have been on so far. Go Ahead Tours assured my safety. The locals were friendly and I had so much fun. I met some great people and we developed a connection. Our tour guide was very smart and knowledgeable. THANK YOU for an experience of a lifetime.”

Frame-worthy views everywhere you look

“A fantastic tour! Overall this trip exceeded our expectations. Point your camera in any direction at the Pyramids of Giza and you’ll capture a breathtaking photo. ... Overall this was one of the best Go Ahead tours I’ve been on. As mentioned, Egypt is a chaotic place however you’ll feel VERY SAFE being led by your tour director as well as armed security. ...”

Priceless moments, priceless memories

“Egypt and the Nile was an AMAZING trip! I loved everything about this trip! When I first booked this trip, I did not know what to expect. However, the memories that were created are priceless! During my trip, I had the opportunity to ride on an Hot Air Balloon over several temples, buy a cartouche and sail on the Nile river. More importantly, I had the opportunity to confirm what I learned in history books before my very own eyes! ...”

New friends in far-away places

“For as long as I can remember I have wanted to see Egypt. I was expecting this trip to be wonderful. My experience was even better than I could have imagined. ... I had a personal encounter with an Egyptian family. The mother and father gently smiled and indicated that their small daughter could speak English. The little girl extended her hand and said, 'How do you do?' The parents were obviously proud; I was overwhelmed by the compliment. ...”

Stepping into the history books

“I thought this trip was going to be great and as great I thought it was going to be, it was a thousand times better! I was whisked back in time to a place I had only read about in books. The history and information we were given by our guide filled in all the blank spots and immersed us with color, light, smells, and we even touched the temples and tombs of the gods and pharaohs. A once in a lifetime experience and well planned and executed by Go Ahead. Thanks for the memories!”
