In all honesty, they share their experience with Passion Explorers

Egypt - Secrets of the pharaohs

« Before we left, I never thought we'd see so many things in such a short time. Seeing the pyramids in real life and entering the Great Pyramid is a crazy experience. But what stroke me the most was the Osirion in Abydos which is an unreal place (...) actually I arrived with questions, and I left with with even more of those, and that was great because we really start rethinking our ancient past! Fullfiling experience! From a human standpoint this tour has also been very rewarding, and what a treat to cross the Nile on a boat almost every day! »
« In my eyes, the 2 culminating points of the tour were the Serapeum of Saqqara and Dendera Temple. The Serapeum because of its incredible size and its underground megalithic boxes. Dendera, for its frescoes and the underground crypt that are to me 2 key components in understanding the origins of the Egyptian people, where it came from and what it has been.»
« For my first time in Egypt, I will foremost remember the immensity of the Giza plateau. Having breakfast face to face with the Sphinx is truly incredible! Second of all, I'd say that the strongest aspect was the human touch of the adventure created by Passion Explorers and the great atmosphere among the group. Great people who increased the fun of this tour. »
« Magnificient tour that I probably wouldn't have ever done without this opportunity. The little extra thing was that during those "unstable times" we were often alone on the sites which truly gave a feeling of being privileged. The choice of the sites selected was is almost perfect but I would shorten Aswan in order to add...a night in the desert to see the stars? :) Maybe not so easy for those travelling during hot times.»
"I truly recommend Passion Explorers. I spent one of the best moments of my life with Jan and the people who took part of the trip. The trip vas high quality and Jan's alternative archeology knowledge allowed us to live a unique experience. And since this kind of travel is prized by passionate people, the human adventure was very enriching!"
"I travelled to Egypt with Passion Explorers and it was perfect! Choices of hotels, restaurants and sites were excellent. About organization, it was without fault! For your planned trip, you can trust them all the way!"
if you are looking forward to travel around Egypt or some where else, you will never find better company than Passion Explorers as they help you to get the real experience of the country. Feel free to just book with them.
If you want to live an exceptional adventure and meet wonderful people, you are just at the right place. If Egypt and its mysteries always called you out, contact Jan, you will not regret it! On a personal note, I lived unbelievable moments, contemplated mindblowing landscapes and learnt a lot about locals and their habits. It has been one of the best moments in my life! Adding to that, it is not an “ordinary” travel company only interested to your money and which abandons you once the forfeit is payed… Before leaving, a friend of mine wrote to me and said: “travels are a return to essential”… This saying can be fully understood once you are in front of the pyramids, with Jan’s company. :)

Budapest - Gourmet & cultural city break

"Jan was a great guide. Not only because he made me discover a Budapest that I never could have imagined but also because he gave his all to share his love for this superb city. Walking around the city as locals do is an experience I would highly recommend! And if you are like, a group of good buddies, then the cocktail will be perfect!"
"Along with 3 friends, I loved this city, especially its burgers! I'm used to eating Amsterdam automatic street food and I never thought that "street food" could have so much taste! And I guess there are still tons of burger places we haven't seen...Yes I love burgers :) I also really liked Jan's explanations in front of the parliament."
"In february 2016 I went to Budapest with a group of friends and had he pleasure of being guided by Jan. I loved discovering the city as if I was living there. We learned a lot and kept a real freedom to do whatever we wanted to, or go wherever we felt like as Jan was opening endless possibilities in the city. Great experience!"
"Jan showed us a Budapest I didn't know although I had been there twice already, but I would mainly tell a story that my kid's mind truly loved. As we were crossing a charming street full of restaurants, Jan suddenly changed directions to the left. A few seconds later we were almost alone in a huge arcade place where we spent almost 2 hours glued to those big video games! I would have never thought that we'd see such a thing a few steps from restaurants! When I think about games arcade right in the city center...What a great trip down memory lane! Thanks Jan :) "

Tailor made tours

"My experience with Passion Explorers is one of my best travel memories. I have been loving travelling for quite some time and I was very surprised to see how much better a travel experience becomes when you get your own road sheet with all kinds of advice, good addresses usually not in guidebooks, etc...what a treat to bargain a car for the day in Asia without getting robbed! Off the beaten paths and ready to go, those tailor made trips are what suits me best for sure!"
Budapest has always been a city I was very keen on because of its beauty, local culture and monuments. Thanks to Jan & Oana, I managed to see the city from Heroes Square to the Parliament and the Danube riversides as well as Gellért baths. They gave great insights based on my personality. They also advised huge meals in nice areas of the city without having to feel like a tourist. 5 stars! Actually, 5 sztar like they say over there :)
We travelled to Bali through a custom made trip that Jan created for my wife and I. It really felt like an authentic adventure where we got to see and taste the real Bali life, cuisine, and atmosphere. The highlights of the trip were the gorgeous hotels picked by Jan in Ubud, a surprise day trip that included hidden wild waterfalls, the food advice as well as the chilled moments, snorkeling and people in Gili Air!
Not being a travel expert myself, I always have this strange feeling of having missed certain things during my trips. With Passion Explorers I must admit, before anything else, that I felt releaved. I just had to sit back, relax, enjoy, explore, discover, share and let myself go with the flow. A unique human experience. I especially appreciated being taken care of by competent people who were also quite generous but more importantly greatly passionate. The true beauty of the world.
Big thanks to Passion Explorers for their professionalism and the fine organization. Thanks to them, we realized our dream! This Egypt trip was perfect and will stay forever in our memories! We will use your services again to continue to explorer this beautiful planet!
