Tipping is a way of life in Egypt. Tipping in Jordan isn’t mandatory and is
not as wide spread as in Egypt, but it is appreciated! A good tip in Jordan is
to leave approximately 10% of a restaurant bill. While many tips are
included in the tour price, be prepared to tip for personal service. 3 weeks
before the tour a complete list of expected tips will be shared with to you.

TESTIMONIALS                                                                                                               Back to Top

“Touring through Egypt with Explorations of Light was a dream come true! Our first activity in Cairo was a sunset felucca cruise on the Nile. After 20 hours on an airplane, the brisk Nile breeze blew away all of our travel fatigue, leaving the group and myself refreshed and ready to start our Egyptian Adventure. The Pyramids and Sphinx were a long anticipated experience, I was expecting to feel ancient Egyptian wisdom but I was a little disappointed. The constant presence of the Egyptian Guards and endless requests to buy things overshadowed whatever wisdom was there. The ancientness I was expecting at the Pyramids was found at the Hathor Temple near Luxor. That is where I felt the timeless wisdom of Egypt..."
