Great tour! It could have added an extra day to spend more time at each of our stops. It was advertised for only 22 people and we had 31. This was a bit of an issue since we had a family of 11 people who were always late.

The hotels at Egypt and Dubai are very nice. Hotel breakfast are delicious . The tour guides have good services. My husband and I enjoyed the Nile river cruise. We liked the scenery along the river. The service and the food on the cruise are good. The only thing we regret was the Dhow dinner cruise at Dubai. The food was not good and not enough food for everyone. We saw the pyramids, a lot of temples, Valleys of the Kings and Queens, ride the camels , visited the Dubai mall, saw the famous fountain show...... A lot of unforgettable memories. It's good to go when it's not too hot.

Great tour, especially Dubai and Abu Dhabi. We especially loved the desert safari and all the entertainment there. Also, the Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was truly spectacular. I would prefer fewer shopping stops in favor of sightseeing stops. And the Musandam Cruise to Oman was not our favorite. Long driving with the time spent at the border. And the cruise itself is that interesting as presented in the description. But all in all, this is a great tour and the chance to see the ultra-modern city of the future.

There is such beauty in the New Imagination of the mind, and that is what Dazzling Dubai is all about. The architecture of the skyscrapers will blow your mind. The beauty of Palm Island and the future of a New World will surely make you want to visit again and again. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. The food was was local and foreign to satisfy all nationalities. The tour guide was knowledgeable and used every minute of the schedule efficiently and effectively. The Maldives was relaxing, calm and peaceful. A great place for recreation. Make sure you walk with lots of cash

Highlights of Egypt and Jordan
While I joined the tour, (Highlights of Egypt/Jordan), with no expectations and kept an open mind, I came back filled with memories of sheer joy, unforgettable moments, treasured adventures, and everything else in between. Egypt and Jordan will be on everybody's bucket list as Egypt is clearly one of the original Seven Wonders of the World! The 4-day Nile Cruise (AmWaj - Livingstone) itself to Luxor was awesome having benefitted from our excellent tour guide, Ramy Fakhry. He's the best of the best and a highly sought-after guide in all of Egypt! He's a certified Egyptologist and conducts his tour presentation effortlessly. You could feel that he's passionate about what he does and you could tell that he's really proud to be an Egyptian. His deep knowledge equipped with a wealth of information about Egypt is unmatched! He's super engaging and breaks down the information seamlessly. He utilizes his audience to capture the various Egyptian characters for easy reference. Jordan is a surprising delight! We also had the benefit of having Mohammad Awimer as one of the best guides in Jordan. His expertise and passion about Jordanian culture is superb! As the world slowly reopens, curious travelers would like to know what they've missed from the 2-year pandemic hiatus. I highly recommend this tour as it would make you feel that you're truly part of ancient civilization. Each country is unique so be ready to adapt, let go and stay flexible. Traveling feeds the soul hungry for opportunities not to be missed! So, what are you waiting for? Go out there, enjoy and have fun as tomorrow is not guaranteed! Life is too short to miss these endless opportunities waiting to be explored! Well done, Indus! Ditas ( - D - ) San Francisco Bay Area

Our original contact with Indus over the internet showed a 3 night stay in Dubai but received only 2. Had to spend close to 7 hours in Dubai hotel lobby before our airport pick-up home. Should have been on our optional Dinner Cruise then, but instead for no apparent reason it was moved up 2 days when we did indeed have a hotel room to sleep in.
