Traveling to Egypt and Jordan with Adventures Abroad was one of the best decisions I have made. Our high school group's entry into the Arab world was filled with visits to bazaars, dancing, great conversations, and spectacular historical sites- the kind that leave people breathless at the beauty. From the beginning, Adventures Abroad worked tirelessly with me on our itinerary, accommodating my basic precondition that students experience as much as possible and not be insulated from the people.
We sailed down the Nile on seven person feluccas, rode camels and hiked with Bedouins for two days in Wadi Rum, and had conversations with all ages of locals in bazaars and in our overnight stay at a Jordanian school. Whether we were eating dinner with Nubian villagers or descending by donkey into Valley of the Kings, Adventures Abroad made sure our trip pulsed with activity and history. There were no unwelcome surprises, no extra fees, and flexibility was always in play. We all fell in love with our exuberant guide, Serra, who navigated this trip with such a sense of adventure and knowledge. We will definitely use Adventures Abroad again!
