It's one of the best tours I've done during my travels. Morocco is full of history and culture, what made this tour a great experience for me was our guide Abdul, before we went on the tour I had heard so much about him, he's great full of knowledge and pretty funny I may say. Sleeping under the stars in Sahara desert was amazing, we stayed in a camp for two nights. I've recommended this tour to all my friends and everyone.Read more

Before heading back home to Australia I wanted to tick off much as possible from my bucket list and Egypt was one of them. Had a great time, our guide name was Sam , he was really good, has a bucket load of knowledge , sailing down the Nile on a Felucca and sleeping under the stars was a great experience. Thank you Travel Talk for an experience of a lifetime.Read more

Sailing from Dubrovnik to Split was the best way to see Croatia and all of it's islands. The people on the boat were awesome and the tour leader was very knowledgeable and helpful. The boat was comfortable and it was a perfect week away at a really good price.Read more

British company, Travel Talk, strives to provide top notch travel experiences at reasonable prices.
What Makes Travel Talk Stand Out?
Travel Talk was born out of the desire to make extraordinary experiences accessible to ordinary people.
They have many niche tours such that finding a tour suited to your interests is easy, and you’re guaranteed to meet like minded friends along the way! All tours are led by local experts who are there to make your experience unforgettable.
Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Travel Talk?
The Travel Talk traveler is someone eager to hit the ground running and explore destinations from all angles. These trips are intended primarily for 18-39 year olds, though the “young at heart” are also welcome. However if you are more in the 40+ range, be forewarned that the tour personality will definitely be youthful in tone. In this case “like minded” traveler is pretty age-range specific.
In their own words, travelers on their tours “have a desire to get off the beaten track, experience the culture and tradition all while having a little fun.” Single travelers are more than welcome, and provided you don’t mind sharing a room, no single supplement is required (with the occasional exception on sailing tours).
However, unlike their commonly compared counterparts, Contiki and Topdeck, Travel Talk presents itself as less of a constant ongoing party and more of a cultural experiences tour. Not to say there is not the occasional night out on the town - only that the more introverted may enjoy Travel Talk more than Contiki or Topdeck.
Their specialized tours focus in Europe, though they also operate in Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco.
Travel Talk Style
Travel Talks travel style is all about cultural discovery and having a good time. Accommodations are chosen within a variety of comfort levels, and Travel Talk strives to choose where you stay and how as it’s own experience - not just as an afterthought.
Travel Talk tours are budget conscious, but depending on the destination, you may experience anything from a 5 star resort to riding aboard a traditional felucca on the Nile.
Why Choose a Tour with Travel Talk?
They are committed to providing a real, adventurous, cultural, and above all local experience. Yet they are careful to not force the comfort zone too far. You will receive outstanding service, accommodation, transportation, and attention from your tour guides. Itineraries cover the must see tourist spots as well as hidden gems. It’s the perfect travel experience that won’t break the bank.
Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.
What Makes Them Stand Out?
Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.
Who Travels With Them?
Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.
Where Do They Operate?
Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.
Why Travel With Them?
Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.
Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
