Travelzoo Member Reviews for Travel Discounters

May 21, 2018

Thank you for all your hard work on our wonderful South Africa travel package. I can honestly say that this was one for the history book.  The Karongwe Game Reserve was our favourite part of the trip.  The service, kitchen and game drives are amazing. We have recommended you to various people and will be using your services for future trips. -- Cezare

Our Egyptian experience can only be described as truly magnificent. A 5-star trip without a 5-star price. The two  Egyptologists, Rehab in Cairo and Walid on the cruise -- with their vast knowledge and ability to make every excursion memorable -- ensured that our trip became one of a lifetime. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Travel Discounters and Blue Sky to anyone wishing to have a great Egyptian experience. -- John, Judy and Natasha

My wife and I just returned from a 17-day trip to Egypt and India and I’m happy to say this was one of the best trips we have ever taken. We learned a great deal about both the history and cultures of Egypt and India and were left in awe by the many sites we visited in both countries. We still can’t believe we visited the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the many temples in Memphis, Sakkara, Luxor, Karnack, Edfu and Abu Simbel, the Valley of the Kings and, of course, the magical beauty of the Taj Mahal. Somehow we found time to see the sunrise in a hot air balloon. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for something different and out of the ordinary. We would not hesitate to book another trip with Travel Discounters and hope to do so in the not too distant future. -- Ron and Danielle

My Egypt, Jordan and Israel tour was truly a trip of a lifetime! The antiquities were more impressive in person than descriptions and pictures portray them to be and the included activities throughout the tour were always interesting and fun.  I chose to add some optional experiences and they, too, were all absolutely worthwhile. Our Egyptologist, Kareem, was nothing short of amazing and my driver in Jordan, Yacoub, was excellent and he went out of his way to make that leg of the trip pleasurable. The food for the included meals ranged anywhere from excellent to stellar -- always plentiful and tasty -- and often a choice of regional dishes where available. Without reservation, I was thrilled to have taken this tour and I would recommend it to others. -- Don

I loved Greece more than I expected. The hotel we had in Athens was outstanding. The lobby was gorgeous -- all marble -- and there was a great little coffee shop serving drinks and light meals. The most amazing part was the restaurant on the 11th floor. It was all glass and you could see the Acropolis from there. This is where they served the buffet breakfast and we’d always go up in the evening and have a drink and look down at the city all lit up. It was fabulous. Plus, it was right in the neighbourhood of Parliament with the changing of the guard which we could easily walk to. And downtown was a short walk away where we found all kinds of bakeries, restaurants, taverns and little shops. Both in Delphi and Meteora we had great guides, lovely hotels and wonderful things to see. And, of course, Santorini is spectacular. We did lots of walking there, too. I would say the motto of Greece should be “Land of 100,000 Steps.” I never did so much climbing in my life. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation. Thank you for making it possible. -- Nancy

The trip to South Africa was great, and all your personnel were professional, knowledgeable and on time as scheduled. The accommodations were excellent as was the food. The best parts were the game drives where we were able to see the Big 5 and many other animals in the wild. The guides and trackers were excellent and very informative. -- Jeffrey

Our trip to Egypt and Jordan was fantastic. We really felt safe and well looked after the entire time. The Nile Cruise was great and we’re happy that we got the fifth night and the drink package as well as the extra tour to Abu Simel. Our guide, Kareem, was fantastic and personable with so much knowledge. Our driver in Jordan was also good and knew the places we would enjoy. He really tried hard to make sure we had a great time. Loved our time at the Dead Sea, the hotel was great, and it was nice to get to put our toes into the water. --  Sharon

We are still talking about our trip to Egypt, Dubai, Abu Dhabi to each other and our friends. We were very well taken care of and felt very safe. We are so pleased with Mo's arrangements and his constant contact with the preparations to make sure we were satisfied. All our guides were patient, well-informed and comforting. The Nile cruise was wonderful. The ship was beautiful, and the service was great. -- Brenda, Robert, Michael and Kim

Best trip ever! This trip makes 56 countries we have visited, and Israel was totally awesome. Best guides and drivers. We are already planning to return to Israel. Enjoyed your service. -- Nancy

From the start, everything was handled for us which made for a hassle-free and worry-free vacation. We were greeted at the airport and walked through customs and then to our hotel. The staff were very nice and accommodations very clean. We stayed at the Le Meridian Pyramids and on the Semiramis 1 cruise ship. The food was excellent and plentiful. Kareem, our Egyptologist, was fabulous, informative and very fun. He took care of us very well. We recommend Travel Discounters and will be booking trips with them again. -- Pam and Maurice

This trip completely exceeded any expectation I may have had. We had the most amazing experience. I have recommended Travel Discounters to everyone and I’m already looking into planning my next adventure with you. -- Jana

We enjoyed our trip. Everything was great. We especially enjoyed our tour guide Paschel in Zimbabwe. We would certainly suggest others use your service in the future. -- Peter

Mo, with Travel Discounters, did a great job of putting together my trip to Egypt and answering my many questions. My daughter and I travelled together, and Mo arranged for us to sit across from each other for all our connections. It’s a long trip but worth it. We never felt unsafe. We were always met and had very nice and knowledgeable guides and drivers. In Cairo, we could see the pyramids from our hotel. I cannot explain the feeling I had when I first saw the pyramids. The second part of our tour was a Nile cruise with many shore stops to see temples thousands of years old, plus pyramids, Mosques and bazaars. There were 11 of us on tour and we became a family. The people of Egypt were very friendly; people waved and smiled at us. I always felt comfortable. -- LaVonne

Our tour guide, Kareem, along with Ashraf and Abdu were excellent and we really enjoyed our time in Egypt. Will recommend it to others and book future trips with you. -- Alice

Egypt was the highlight of the trip. We all appreciated the informed and knowledgeable guides we had in each country: The two Kareems in Egypt, George in Israel and Palestine and, of course, Abdallah in Jordan, really made us feel at home and did their best to help us cope with our challenges. I can't stop talking about the trip to friends. -- Priya
