Splendour of Egypt was great except for pickup at Cairo airport.   , NSW, Australia, Dec 2022

Insight informed travellers that the pickup was at Arrival Hall or outside depending on Covid restrictions. I had before the trip, enquired with my advisor to confirm the pickup point. Sadly she said there was no reply from Insight. It was a dent in my holiday because I was not informed of the pickup point, walked pass it and had to take local taxi and paid US 30 dollars!!!

In any ...read more case, the trip was on my bucket list and I was happy to see all that I set out to see. Guide in Jordan was very good, guide in Egypt was good.
Arnhem Land a must.   , NSW, Australia, Sep 2022
AAT Kings Arnhem Land tour was fantastic, cultural and with mind blowing rock art. This place should be listed as one of the world wonders. This is a must see over 60,000 years of history explained by highly knowledgeable Aboriginal guides. Came away with photos and more understanding of the Aboriginal culture. Great thanks to Hannah from Global Journeys ...read more and AAT Kings.
