What past travellers are saying about Saskatoon Chamber Trips:

This Greater Saskatoon Chamber trip to Egypt was like capturing lightning in a bottle! The excursions, the guides and the fellow tour mates exceeded all expectations and the coordination on site was exceptional. I never thought myself an organized tour traveller, but if I could recreate this magic I would do in again tomorrow! – Emmanuel M.

This was the second Chamber tour we have taken and I would highly recommend to anyone considering joining them on a trip. Everything is set up for you – all you have to do is show up on time and enjoy the experience. It is a brilliant way of exploring countries and cultures that you may not do on your own. Join the tour and enjoy! – Trent F.

Booking a tour with the Chamber was an excellent experience. The actual booking was easy, friendly and efficient. The itinerary was well-planned and took us to all the major sites I wanted to see. The guides in-country were extremely well-qualified and fabulous hosts. And the best feature of the tour was meeting and sharing new experiences with wonderful people from Sask. Thank you to the Chamber and to Kendra in particular. – Joan C.

I couldn’t have imagined a more illuminating glimpse of the ancient civilization in Egypt. We were fortunate to have been treated to an inspiring tour of the sights and sounds at each stop on the tour. Thank you to everyone responsible for acquiring personnel of such high caliber to effortlessly lead us on our journey. We were treated to the experience of a lifetime. – Cheryl K.
