Steve’s knowledge for the country, relaxed style and ability to choose great destinations, good hotels, restaurants and activities made the whole journey a pleasure.
Having had the wonderful experience of travelling with Byroads through Uzbekistan, I had little doubt my trip in Jordan and Egypt with Steve would prove a wise decision. We visited all the wonderful monuments the region is so famous for and the pace of the trip was perfect. We travelled by bus, train, plane, riverboat, and even camels and the hotels were so comfortable. The team of local guides were informed and friendly and Egypt and Jordan were remarkable. I can’t wait to join Byroads again.
I’ve done several trips now with Byroads including Jordan, Iran and twice to both Turkey and Morocco. All were fantastic trips that took me to the very heart of each country’s culture and people. I wouldn’t travel with anyone else. Thank you Steve!
We have travelled extensively both in groups and privately, but nothing has been better than this Byroads holiday. Steve has put together a wonderful tour of Egypt which covers the length of the country including all the famous sites as well as some lesser known ones. The accommodation was great, and the various modes of travel were comfortable. Our fellow travellers were a friendly bunch and our local guide, Waleed was a fountain of knowledge and fitted right in with the group.
We felt privileged to have been introduced to Morocco through the extraordinary Byroads trip. Morocco is amazing and the trip lived up to expectations in every way – the Byroads support crew, the local guides, the scenery, the history, the accommodation and the food. Not only was the itinerary very carefully organised, but our leader, Steve, made it a special experience through his personalised tailoring to optimize every experience. Highly recommended!
Uzbekistan was our first trip with Steve and Byroads. We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but by trips end we were enthralled by our experience. The friendliness and knowledge of our guides, the competence and patience of our drivers, the wonderful accommodation and restaurant choices and the marvellous sites all combined to make this a memorable trip. Steve quietly worked logistics in the background and his version of ‘guided democracy’ and attention to detail was very much appreciated by our group.
Having travelled with Steve and Byroads previously I was excited to visit Mexico. The carefully crafted itinerary along with our dynamic and passionate local guide Ana, ensured a wonderful trip. I’m a big fan of the Byroads travel formula. From the mode of transport, the quality of the accommodation and the calibre of the local guides, Byroads tours are authentic and great fun. Steve, as the brains behind the operation is organised and attentive, joins in the fun and is the glue that keeps everyone bubbling along.
Our small group tours are just that – small. Which means the early bird gets the worm.
