A wonderful trip! As a solo woman traveler, Genevieve and her guides really made me feel comfortable and at ease in Egypt. Absolutely loved exploring inside the Great Pyramid. Our group was great and the Nile cruise was magical!
Genevieve’s expertise in Egypt shows! Our tour in Egypt was well run; filled with unique experiences, our great local guide Reham, and so many memories. Food was great. The trip ran very smoothly. Highly recommend!
I did a week tour in Egypt with them, and it was the best trip I’ve ever had. Can’t recommend it enough.
Genevieve and the Archaeoadventures team showed me the heart and soul of Morocco. Through the fascinating food tour in Marrakech and the marvelous artisan tour of Fes, the adventurous camel trek out in the Sahara Desert and stay at the charming Berber camp, and the visit to the stunning Bahia Palace and gorgeous vistas of the blue city of Chefchaouen, I experienced the full depth of Morocco. The hotels were amazing, comfortable and well located in the old part of the cities. Everywhere the food was delicious, locally grown, and safe to eat. All aspects of the tour were well thought out, well managed and so much fun! I highly recommend this tour!
Just returned from an INCREDIBLE group trip with ArchaeoAdventures Tours in Egypt. Could not have had a better, more informative experience. Excellent, knowledgeable local Egyptian tour guide aligned with owner, Genevieve Hathaway, arranged a meticulously planned, very detailed itinerary to highlight the best of ancient Egypt sites and sights. Added to that were the experiences of great hotels, interesting restaurants, & varied transportation (camel, hot air balloon, tuk tuk, small van, dahabiya (boat) cruise on Nile, & in-country flight). The amount of planning to incorporate such intensive travel paired with the amazing experiences could only be accomplished with 1) intimate knowledge of Egypt, 2) stellar in country connections, and 3) major preparation. There were a dozen people on this tour, allowing easy maneuverability and, at times, adjust quickly to suit changed circumstances. Would definitely recommend this boutique adventure tour to Egypt with Genevieve and her team for a personal experience you'll never forget! Thanks, Genevieve & also to guide, Yassmin & coordinator, Tamer!!!
Morocco had been on my must-go list for a very long time but with so little time to plan or do research, archeoadventures was a godsend. The tour was very well planned…. I am amazed at how much of morocco we covered and was still managed to get a taste of each city we stayed in. Every time i saw one of those giant tour bus with 30+ people i was so thankful i was traveling with a small group of like minded travelers. I am looking forward to doing their other tours.
Genevieve’s expertise combines the best of book smarts and street smarts. Not only are her travels well-researched, but once her feet hit the ground she’s meeting locals, making contacts, and turning information into rich experience. Her joy for traveling is infectious.
The trip was more than I ever expected in every way, starting with the Riads, the small hotels in the heart of the ancient Medinas – beautiful architecture, great breakfast/ dinners, and owners/staff who made us feel completely welcome. We were truly in the culture. The overnight camel trek to the Berber Oasis was absolutely magical, an adventure right up there with the Giza Pyramids and Petra Treasury. A whole new world. Each city was original, exotic and accessible thanks to your careful planning. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
In 2016 I adventured to Morocco on the ArchaeoAdventures tour. I was closing a chapter in my life and used the trip as a life reset. It was a fascinating and magical tour with a truly wonderful group of traveling companions, we are still friends today! I found many people that spoke English to help me navigate while I explored the Medinas; friendly locals always guided me to a shop, spa, or restaurant I sought in Marrakech and Fez if I got lost. The food was spectacular, and spices from the markets continue to help me recreate moments I cherish. I came home with so many memories and treasures, which I topped off by adding a photo-shoot by Genevieve Hathaway Photography to keep my experience in the Sahara desert alive in pictures.
My trip to Morocco with ArchaeoAdventures was the tour of a lifetime. We saw and did so much over a relatively short time, and everywhere we went, we were met with stunning scenery and helpful people. Thank you for the opportunity to get to know Morocco with such fabulous travel companions!
Traveling with Genevieve (ArchaeoAdventures’ Director) in 2014, I have now well and truly rediscovered not just my passion for travel, but also my passion for my own life. I don’t throw about expressions like that lightly; Gen is one of those rare people in life who lives so authentically that you cant help but want to do the same. Her passion for travel, for discovery, for “living” her own “gifts” will at the very least mean you feel good in her company and at best make you want to discover your own.
In past travels with Genevieve, ArchaeoAdventures’ Director, I learned she has not just passion to take adventure to the next level (ie climb the Incan Trail in Peru) but the ability to rise to make the best of every occasion. She did lots of great research, found great highlights, and when things did veer off course, she stayed calm, collected lots of information about options, and did her absolute best to turn a challenge into a classy opportunity. I can’t wait to explore Egypt on one of the trips she’s concocted with care and her great love of Egyptian history.
I highly recommend traveling with ArchaeoAdventures Tours. Their Director, Genevieve, is so knowledgeable about the Middle East and has such a love for travel, it’s infectious! The local women guides were very professional and made my friends and I feel at home in their country. We felt very safe traveling with ArchaeoAdventures. We definitely will be taking another of their tours!
I have toured with Genevieve through several Middle East countries.Genevieve's tours are great fun as well as carefully planned, well organized and safely run. She had us visits both well and lesser known sites and arranged for wonderful encounters with local people. With her smile and charming personality, Genevieve smooths the way for her clients with taxi drivers, guards, and anyone else who might make a trip more challenging. She is an outstanding tour guide and selects great local guides. I highly recommend her tours and will go on another one myself when I get the chance!
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your interview yesterday. I am an avid traveler, but outside of Istanbul (and hopes for Morocco), I had planned to avoid the Middle East. Your interview changed my mind and I will be sure to use your company when I go. Thanks for opening my mind!
The trip was amazing! It was a great overview to the beautiful country. The city tours with local female guides were insightful and a great opportunity to really connect with the culture. The accommodations were very charming and the food was delicious!
