    It was well-organized and all parts of the tour went smoothly!

    Traveling during Covid presents many challenges. From the beginning, people at Travel Discounters were responsive by email and phone to manage these challenges. They assisted me with logistics issues and spent significant time designing the itinerary that I wanted.

    Travel Discounters were absolutely fabulous during COVID times!

    They were absolutely fabulous with myself and my family when we needed to reschedule our trip due to COVID. They were honest, transparent and extremely helpful, we really felt that they went above and beyond to ensure we were feeling good about our plans.

    - Mira

    The trip itself was incredible. We would recommend this agency to anyone!

    From beginning to plan our itinerary to navigating travel during post-COVID times to enjoy the sights of Egypt, Travel Discounters made our experience truly remarkable. All details were patiently and carefully explained. They were very professional.
