“Very good but the local delicacy eggs with half formed embryos were a bit of a surprise. We couldn't bring ourselves to eat it and may have offended our host by our refusal. Perhaps if we were asked before hand if we were interested in something like that first, would could have said yes or no prior to having the dish presented to us? The silk farm was a real highlight. Loved helping out the local economy by buying their incredibly well made goods.”

“I was especially impressed with Dalia’s dedication: on one day we visited the Pyramids in the morning and went directly to doing the walking tour of Cairo that afternoon. It was very hot, it was during Ramadan so Dalia was not eating or drinking, and it was a long day of walking and talking but she never flagged. My trips were somewhat rearranged in order from what I’d booked, to accommodate another traveler, and that was handled very well. Dalia manages the inevitable glitches that come up in any adventure with aplomb, and offers a very good balance of presence and time for personal explorations. Her willingness to engage with myself and the other woman on several of the trips about the role of women in our various cultures was insightful. She truly is an outstanding guide, and I wanted to let you know.”

“Great tour with a great guide. Very informative, but almost too much info. A postcard or bookmark with the orishas and their names would be very helpful. This tour isn't for everyone, but definitely anyone who'd like a quick tour of Afro Cuban religions and is ready to soak up all the details. Interactive dance was also a great highlight.”

Your guide will meet you out front of the New Wave Guest House, and together we’ll ride a horse-drawn cart to a local tea shop. Here, you’ll get to relax over some tea, and perhaps shop for some beer and snacks (at your own expense) to enjoy as a picnic on board the boat.

Then, we’ll head over to Ayar Jetty and hop aboard for a sunset cruise along the Ayeyarwady River (also known as the Irrawaddy River). We’ll float along for about 90 minutes, and you’ll have plenty of excellent photo opportunities — capture a shot of local life along the shore, or of the wildlife around you, or of the sun setting beyond the river’s edge. If snapping photos isn’t your thing, then just sit back and take it all in, soaking up the sights with your own inner camera.

Once our cruise has finished, we’ll head back to the jetty and your guide will help you arrange for local transportation back to your hotel.
