“Egypt, Israel & Jordan with Bunnik Tours”
- NSW, Australia Mar 2019 1 Helpful Vote

Bunnik Tours' information needs to be updated. Poor organisation on the Alexandria trip and optional tours, muddled information. Local tour guides seemed under pressure to complete the itinerary and it was different to our itinerary.

Reply from Bunnik:
Dear Michele,

Thank your for providing constructive feedback regarding your time in the Middle East with us.

I would like to deeply apologise that you experienced poor organisation during your time in Alexandria and that there were discrepancies between your and the guide's itinerary. Please know that we take all feedback seriously and our product team is investigating this further with our partners in the Middle East to ensure all itinerary details are in order.

I hope that despite the issues mentioned above you enjoyed your time in Egypt, Israel and Jordan overall and that you've come home with many lasting memories from your time in these amazing destinations.

Warm regards,
Julie Moran-Bunnik

“Wonderful places but some logistical problems in Israel and Jordan”
- NSW, Australia Apr 2018 7 Helpful Votes

Egypt and Jordan in particular had many memorable sites. Accommodation on the whole was pretty good; sometimes very good. Increased tourist numbers everywhere impacted on where we went and slowed down access sometimes. There were also some exceptionally long waits at a couple of airports which adversely affected the program. Our group numbered 19. As there were three countries and three guides, one rating can't apply as two of the guides were really good and one was not that great with organization...read more

Dear Pam,

Thanks for taking the time to post your comments about your recent Egypt, Israel & Jordan tour. Even though we have corresponded with you regarding your Jordanian guide, I just wanted to take this opportunity of confirming that we've addressed the area of concern with our agent in Jordan. Once again, thank you for sharing your comments and I'm pleased that overall you enjoyed your time in the Middle East.
