In a lot of ways, the United Arab Emirates is a comic book come to life. The oil-rich federation of ancient monarchies, with their artificial islands, futuristic skyscrapers, and stunning backdrop of golden sands and azure seas, seem like scenes plucked from a science-fiction blockbuster or the products of a child’s busy imagination. But it’s this very mindset that has transformed the U.A.E. into one of the world’s top destinations for families. The native appetite for outlandish architecture, colorful attractions, and larger-than-life spectacle speaks to the ten-year-old in all of us, a whim local developers are only too happy to indulge.

This family-focused adventure makes the most of this compact region’s fun-per-square-mile ratio. Gaze out over Dubai’s mind-bending futurescape from the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, on a private tour. Spend full days at colossal indoor aquariums and theme parks like DreamWorks’ Motiongate, the Legoland Waterpark, and Abu Dhabi’s unbelievable Ferrari World; then go ziplining, sandboarding, and camel-riding at an exclusive desert resort. Everyone’s a kid in the U.A.E.; some are just bigger than others.

  • Lori M — June 19, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    I had an amazing opportunity to travel for the first time with my little brother on a trip to Egypt. I was mostly booking through an agency because my brother is a spoiled traveller. In hindsight, I highly recommend you booking through an agency if you go. I used Kensington Tours and could not have been happier. They prepared me for what to expect and were very organized throughout the entire trip. We had a gracious and kind host the entire time who arranged everything. I never even checked into a hotel by myself. I felt so spoiled. If you go, ask to have Osama Soliman. We also had the most amazing driver I have ever witnessed and could not have been more thankful, but it is not a place to rent a car! He was always on time, right where we needed him with full AC, WiFi, a clean car and water! You need Mostafa Khalil as your driver - I promise you that! We had 3 guides depending on where we were and what we were doing, but all of them had been doing tours in English for many years and they were all amazing! We had Hala Kamal - she was our Egyptian mother and tour guide in Cairo...we would not have traded the conversations we had with her for anything. She was welcoming and thoughtful. She gave us as much or as little info we wanted. Also, in Cairo, we had not enough time spent with Mahmoud Ramadan. He was very informative and passionate about his knowledge. In Luxor, our guide was Osama Raslan and I would highly recommend his 23 years of experience as a guide. You are all missing a really amazing experience in Egypt if you don't go...my photos will not do it justice. I am in awe and hope to get a chance to go back again!

  • Susan P — July 08, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    The tour, guides, security, driver, accommodations were remarkable in all facets. Specifically, I would like to point out our guide in Cairo/Giza - Hela and our guide in Luxor - Muhammad. There is not enough space here to list all the positives; it lived up to our expectations of a Trip of a Lifetime.

  • Derick B — April 22, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    Seamless professional knowledgeable and trusted throughout. Everything was anticipated and handled with warmth and competence. Beginning to end, not a false step. Superb!

  • Ronald O — April 13, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    My son and I were extremely pleased with the efficiency and organization of our Kensington tour to Egypt. The accommodations, airport and tour facilitators, drivers, hotel and ship personnel, and knowledgeable tour guides made for an unforgettable experience.

  • Paulette L — February 02, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    We knew the accommodations would be superb; however, was not expecting the guides to be so well spoken, accommodating, friendly, and above all so educated and knowledgeable in every aspect. They showed a high degree of interest in us and answered every question with enthusiasm and real desire to relate their history and current Egypt. Kudos especially to Ishmiel Gamea. Ermeen Mostafa El-Sissy also showed in-depth knowledge and appreciated our interests.

  • Sharon P — February 02, 2019 — Egypt & Middle East

    We have already recommended Kensington Tours to friends who are interested in travelling to Egypt after hearing about our experience. Every portion of our trip was handled in a professional, friendly manner. We are so pleased that we had this opportunity to visit Egypt.

    Our guides were one of the most exceptional parts of our trip. Nermeen in Cairo and Ismiel from Aswan to Luxor were outstanding in their knowledge, their professionalism, and their sense of humor, answering every question we posed. They shared their love of their country and it’s ancient history, as well as its culture and present-day issues. Bill and I would not hesitate to recommend Kensington Tours to our friends, thanks to our guides and every other aspect of our experience. Thank you for our “trip of a lifetime”!

  • Sophia V. — November 23, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    I wouldn't have done Egypt any other way! The planning was so easy, Tamara listened to our needs and wants. We were absolutely blown away with our guides, Iman and Mohamed. Iman was so incredibly passionate, she truly brought Egypt alive. Mohamed was highly knowledgeable, but also listened to us and anticipated our needs ahead of time. Kensington really nailed it, and I could not be happier with our trip.

  • Diana B. — December 26, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    Our guides and drivers were extremely nice, very knowledgeable and had excellent manners. Nermeen and Ahmad went above and beyond their duties, they stop at our request at places to buy local food and coffee for us along the way. They connected with us in a personal level and understood what we were interested in.

  • James B. — January 22, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    Micha Weiser was an exceptional tour guide! He adjusted the schedule to make our trip more enjoyable.

  • Biggs P. — December 03, 2018 — Egypt & Middle East

    We have been raving about EVERY aspect of our tour. From airport services to the drivers and extremely knowledgeable guides.This trip was planned seamlessly and perfect.
