26 day tour to Turkey/Egypt/Jordan $5999Note: didn’t get to do the Jordanian part of the tour because if we went there we were to be quarantined for 14 days.Trip a deal really need to revise their itinerary.They quote 5 star’ accommodations for the entire trip, definitely not the case. I would say most were only 3* and the only 2 that came a little close was the hotel CCR in Cappadocia and the Suhan 360 in Kasadasi, both in Turkey. They quote tipping amounts you are expected to pay in Turkey and Jordan being $5us/day which is fine but the Egypt tipping was ‘at your own discretion’ again this is not the case. We had to pay the $5us/day fee upfront, apparently to pay for tips fuel etc to the tour guide (company policy) and this does not cover his tip. The tour is full on, loved every minute of it and local guides know their stuff. Days would basically start at 9am sometimes earlier and you wouldn’t get back to hotel until 4.30pm. The Bosphorus cruise they offer is pretty poor so I’d suggest leaving it out. Do do the balloon flight in CAPPODOCIA it’s expensive but amazing and well worth it.There are 3 other optional tours in Egypt.The light show and meal at Giza about $45us my opinion would probably give it a miss.The balloon flight $120us not sure exactly where but over pyramids. Those in our group who did it said it didn’t compare to Cappadocia.The third was a tour to a Nubian village to see how they live that was about $45us. No one did it one our tour so can’t comment.Lunch buffets had a good selection - soup, every meal chicken/fish/meat, hot veg, salads, fruits and local sweets. Set menus also were mostly good but some food was served cold and some salads had been left on the table too long leaving them limp. I don’t eat meat/chicken and we had a couple of vegetarians they always had a separate meal for us if it was a set menu.We were here during the corona virus and the last 7 days of our trip had to be cancelled because we couldn’t get into Jordan without having to stay in quarantine for 14 days. At first between CRAFT and TripADeal no one wanted to take responsibility and no one believed we weren’t allowed into Jordan. But I have to admit the 2 companies came to the party at organising pick up from airport to a beautiful hotel not far from the airport (Concorde El Salam Hotel Cairo-would recommend staying here) TripADeal very quickly organised flights, at our own expense, but no one really cared because all we want to do is get home. A tour has also been organised for us because we have a full day here before we head home.I don’t think we would consider booking another TripADeal holiday unless they gave you a choice of star options for hotels. I’d prefer to pay the extra .Have now done a Webjet tour and TripADeal tour. Webjet is more expensive but quality is better. TripADeal is a budget tour company.
