A friend of mine booked 4 of us on an Apple Vacation to Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar in Cancun. One of the best vacations we ever had! No problems with flight, no problems with transfers. The airport in Cancun is difficult, but this had nothing to do with Apple Vacations. The hotel was wonderful, staff friendly and pleasant, and food was great. We had such a great time we went back again about a month later.

Our experience with Apple Vacations was phenomenal. First off, we got a great deal on our vacation package. All the Apple Vacations' representatives were courteous and informative both on the phone and on the resort. They provided transportation to and from the airport which was always on time and comfortable. Will be using them again.

I can only recommend Travelish Tours. Booking online in advance was easy, polite and fast. The operator customized a tailormade 5 days tour for my group. Detailed info by phone next to our arrival in Alexandria have been precious. Our guide was just fantastic and kept all the group fascinated throughout the tours, which is not easy! His Italian was brilliant and charming! We had a very skilled driver too. The cruise on the Nilo River was the highlight of the whole journey. There are so many stories to tell and questions to ask about Egyptian history! Thanks to Travelish Tours that arranged everything perfectly

Where can I begin? What an amazing trip. And it was so much better thanks to Travelish Tours!

Our trip started every morning with an awesome ride from our Driver Ahmed who was an absolute blast!!

Then we were led through incredible excursions with our awesome tour guides.

Mahmoud did an amazing job of showing us all around Alexandria through the old parts of the city and exposing us to the best part of the culture and food. He was super accommodating to anything we wanted to do and helped us take great pictures.

Fatma showed us around Cairo introducing us the way to take the best photos in front of the pyramids and giving us great explanations in the museums all around making our experience so much better. We learned so much thanks to her and she felt like a real mother taking care of us!

When we moved onto our time with Rama, in Luxor and Aswan, we felt so at home and at ease because we knew that we were in great hands. She helped us plan out our trip right the way that we wanted and made sure that we all enjoyed ourselves. We didn’t feel like tourist without like locals. She had surprise gifts for all of us including a traditional galibea for me so that I could dress like a southern Egyptian man and be completely assimilated. It really made my trip.

Our trip was made infinitely better thanks to this team and they put it all together and made it possible so we could have an amazing trip without worrying.

There are many people and companies that might try to take advantage of you or rip you off, but rest assured with Travelish Tours you are in good hands with people that really care. In fact, they protected us from some cheapskate tour guide companies that tried to rip us off and steal our money. Furthermore, they helped us send our phone back to our country after it was forgotten in a car. True service. Make the right choice with Travelish Tours!

Now we all feel like we have a special place in Egypt thanks to Travis Tours. It’s only a matter of time before we return and when we do we know exactly who we will call first.

Egypt is one of those countries one should visit at least once in their lifetime. I was there in December 2018 and loved every moment of my presence in the land of river Nile, pharaohs, pyramids and much more. Thanks to Travelish Tours and their passionate CEO, Mahmoud Salah for making our trip so enjoyable and seamless. The entire trip was very well organized and we covered pretty much 75-80% of Egypt in 10 days from Cairo, Saqqara, Memphis, Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simble, Alexandria and Nile cruise, visiting all the key attractions with the guides who explained the history so coherently that we felt as if we went back in time to thousands of years ago. Thanks to Sam, Khalif and Sara, our guides in Cairo, Nile Cruise, and Alexandria respectively for sharing their passion, knowledge and welcoming us so warm heartedly.

I would highly recommend Travelish Tour to anyone planning to visit Egypt as the service the company provides is top class from airport pick up, best hotel accommodation, perfect Nile cruise, customized tours to knowledgeable guides. Mahmoud Salah, more popularly called as Momo, is a very humble individual who understands your needs and ensures your stay in his loving country becomes the most memorable trip of your life. His passion for his motherland’s rich cultural history and heritage and inherently caring attitude demonstrated through excellent organization of the trip and customized tours is indeed contagious.

We felt very safe in Egypt. If you want to explore it like locals contact Travelish Tour and forget about all other logistics as Travelish Tours will take care of all your needs. It would be the best decision you will make and I can vouch through my personal experience as Travelish Tours will ensure your visit to Egypt leaves an indelible mark in your travel memory.

Thank you Travelish tours and Momo for making our trip memorable and in the bargain we found a good friend in Momo!! :)

    About Apple Vacations

    Since 1969, Apple Vacations has been one of the top U.S. purveyors of all-inclusive vacations to mostly warm-weather resort destinations.  

    What Makes Apple Vacations Stand Out?

    • All inclusive vacations
    • Transfers included
    • Award-winning tour company
    • Exclusive non-stop vacation flights
    • Easy-to-reach Apple representatives
    • Great value

    Operating on huge volume, Apple offers a wide array of discounts and will match any competitors’ prices if lower than theirs. Round-trip transfers between the destination airport and hotel are always included with every package. Transportation is taken care of at no additional cost, rather than overcharging for pick-ups like most travel sites. There is also a variety of added values such as room upgrades, golf discounts, and free weddings just to name a few.

    Who Travels With Apple Vacations?

    • All ages
    • Those who love beach vacations
    • ‘Soft’ adventurers
    • Solo and group travelers

    Anyone looking for an all-inclusive vacation package will love traveling with Apple Vacations. Majority of their travelers are US natives, but they welcome everyone onto their tours. It should be noted that all tours are conducted in English.

    Apple Vacation tours typically aren’t physically demanding - the most you’ll have to potentially prepare for is 1 hour of walking at a leisurely pace.

    Top Destinations

    • Mexico
    • Carribean
    • Hawaii
    • Central and South America

    Apple Vacations will take you to all the tropical destinations that are popular with North Americans. White sand beaches that stretch for miles in Aruba, volcanoes and hidden waterfalls in Hawaii - the types of destination that everyone dreams of going to. Whilespecializing in warm-weather destinations, they also offer ski destinations in the winter. Go skiing with Apple Vacations in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe, and even Japan!

    Apple Vacations Travel Style

    Apple Vacations is all about the classic fun-in-the-sun adventures. They typically focus on culture, nature, and soft adventure-themed activities. This could mean exploring a Riviera Maya adventure park on an Apple Vacations tour to Cancun, or snorkelling with tropical fish on an Apple Vacations Hawaii tour.

    Accommodations range anywhere from 3 star hotels to 5 star resorts. You can choose what type of hotel you’d like to stay in depending on your interests, budget, and occasion. They work with big hotel chains that are great for weddings, family reunions, parties, and the like. It’s suggested to do some hotel research as every place offers a different experience. However, if you’re hoping for quirky local accommodations or culturally immersive homestays, you won’t find it here. Most meals are included, with many being large buffets catered by the hotel.  

    On Apple Vacations’ non-stop charter flights, they’ll typically leave in the morning and return in the evening, maximizing your time at your destination. (If departure cities aren’t convenient, they’ll work with commercial airlines to get you there.) Once you arrive at your destination airport, you’ll get a free transfer to your hotel (with a few exceptions).

    Why Choose a Tour with Apple Vacations?

    If you enjoy tropical vacations with open bars and buffets by the poolside, then you should travel with Apple Vacations. You get to choose what activities you’d like to do, and be in charge of how much free time you’d like. Additionally, the non-stop charter flights are a big plus, enabling you to avoid the delays and hassle of traveling by commercial airlines. If you don’t want to do a lot of planning or prep work and are primarily looking for a relaxing vacation, Apple can be an excellent choice.

    However, if you’re hoping for quirky local accommodations or culturally immersive homestays, you won’t find it here.
