We found Travel Discounters delivered on it's promise and delivered a great tour!

What a wonderful memory. We took a chance on Egypt and Travel Discounters and were pleased with the outcome. We found Egypt safe, welcoming and extremely interesting for both it's ancient history and learning about modern life.

Once I landed in Cairo we were taken care of in a style that was truly first class!

I just want to let you know we had the best vacation ever. Going to Egypt was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I was very nervous about going but once I landed in Cairo we were taken care of in a style that was truly first class.

We were very pleased with the Egypt trip, and the South Africa trip also was incredibly awesome!

The trip was awesome, we had wonderful guides in Cairo and Luxor and down the Nile. All our guides, Sahar, Kareem in Egypt and their sidekicks, were just extremely pleasant and super knowledgeable of their country's history.
