An update for Nedwwa. I blew out my knee on that trip. A torn ACL and MCL. My knee was bending inward toward the other leg when ever I moved it. Too bad you didn take the time to figure out what was really going on before dismissing me

Cons: Unprofessional tour management, not experienced with destination

When a tour agency sends a vehicle to our home to take us to the airport, that is good planning and great service. The rest of the tour (China) was just as good. The tour guide anticipated problems we might have and let us know what to

We've been on three of Alki Tours' international trips, including Egypt, and couldn't be more thrilled. We are currently researching locations for our next trip with Alki and hoped to find interesting reviews here to guide our next location decision. We were shocked to see the review written by the women who injured her ankle on the Egypt tour and are horrified to see what has been written. It was an amazing and beautiful trip guided by a very knowledgable guide who went over and beyond to accommodate each guest experience. The guide scheduled many extra and FREE excursions including the boat trip on the Nile River that the review refers to. It was a glorious sunset boat ride and that I cherish enough to hang pictures of on my office wall. The unfortunate accident resulting in the woman's injury was of no fault of the guide or Alki Tours but instead the result of the client's carelessness and extreme lack of basic health and fitness. In reality, it was another moment with Alki that proved its' high level of service as the guide had a physician at the site to care for the women within 5 minutes (incredible!) ...for what ended up being only a sprained ankle! When planning this trip we created a list of sites we wanted to see in our "spare time". We initially planned to schedule these side trips via the hotels but in the end the guide researched our interests and made the additional locations available as options to the whole group. Don't miss the opportunity to go to Jordan and the Dead Sea while you are there! We swam in the Dead Sea and saw many of the "holy sites" that we had always dreamed of visiting. So far, we've been on Alki Tours' trips to Greece, China and Egypt and can't wait to decide on the next destination! We have made many new and long term friends on these trips and plan to join together again for new adventures. So the next decision is Ireland or Costa Rica...? We'll let you know how it goes!

Pros: Beautiful locations with creative and knowledgable guides

Cons: None to date

I have heard this tour company is one of the best but my only experience with them was a day trip which included lunch and a Circque de Soleil show. At the pick up point, the bus left late because the tour guide was late. Neither the bus driver or the tour guide appeared to know much about how to get to the other stops, they had the address but didn't know how to get there so passengers offered assistance with that. The tour guide appeared to have little pre-trip knowledge about the show. The lunch stop was great and the most relaxing part of this afternoon. The show was amazing and we did make it home after the bus driver was able to get the bus into some residential street situations which were interesting to say the least. Buses simply do not fit or should not be traveling through some 2-lane residential streets. In any event I felt this was a one time fiasco and I would definitely try them again. They offer a great service and a competent staff would be a plus.

This is one of the finest tour companies in the Seattle area. They offer a wide variety of tours for every interest. There are one-day tours for those who want to explore the local area, two-day tours for a little broader experience, then the longer tours for visiting the United States as well as abroad. I have traveled with Alki on multiple tours, some short and some extended and it has been a very satisfactory experience. The price is reasonable and you receive top rated service. What I like the best is that the tour guide goes with you from Seattle when you take the extended tours abroad or within the United States. You are well taken care of and I highly recommend this tour company for any of your travel experience.

I sprained my knee Egypt tour getting out of a boat. An accident totally preventable. Boat we were put on had step up/down that was not safe without a step stool. Left to our own devices to get out of boat-no step stool provided.

I missed over 4 days of tour. When I could maneuver outside of bus on crutches, I couldn?t keep up with group to get narration from our Egyptologist.

Alki advertises 1st Class hotels, 1st Class Sleeper train. Train was disgusting. The compartment was filthy. Not enough Clorox wipes to clean off table we were supposed to eat on

At least 2 days no stop for lunch. Alki tour manager passed out junk food as if junk food replaces lunch.

Hotel near Mt. Sinai was appalling. No heat in dining room. Was 40 -50 degrees outside! Rooms not adequately heated.

We requested seats together which we didn't get on any flight. Airlines wouldn?t change seats even when flight was not fully booked. Alki bought some cheap bulk ticket and is responsible for this lack of customer service.

The info sent 2 weeks prior to trip had errors. Someone took last year?s copy &cut -paste. There was info that wasn?t applicable to this year?s trip. Very sloppy,unprofessional.

Tour Manager lacked enthusiasm/energy - just going thru motions.
1.Going to Paris, had 8 hour lay over. Alki rep lead us to gate, didn't know that we couldn't get out of the terminal to visit Paris from where he led us. Sent us on wild goose chase trying to get out. Never got off his butt to help us figure it out.
2.Because he was working with a local Egyptologist he hadn't even bothered to study up on the sites so when I got left behind from the group with him on my crutched, got no info on sites from him.
3.I had high anxiety about navigating on crutches thru airports on way home. He actually told me not to make too big a deal about not being able to walk onto the plane or they wouldn't let me fly. Like I was some sort of child.

Management is extremely rude. I missed my bus and wanted to talk to them about how the bus driver saw me in the parking and didn't stop to let me on the bus, and the manager implied that I was lying. Then the owner didn't even acknowledge, or apologize for, the manager's actions and attitude.
