My memories are indeed good ones. We needed Tarek to get us accustomed to the way things were done — especially airport travel. The guides in the sites he took us to were indeed exceptional. We really appreciated our VIP treatment. People all over Libya amazed us with their hospitality and desire to anticipate all our needs.
I’m back in New York and wanted to drop you a short note to thank you very much for organizing my trip and arranging for Tarek to be my guide — he has an encyclopedic knowledge of the ancient sites, and also of current events, so it was a joy to spend a few days with him. I’m really glad that I was able to visit Libya during its period of transition and look forward to returning in a few years to see the benefits of this change.
I’m back home and very grateful for the wonderful time in Libya.
Eder was an excellent guide. And he speaks perfect English. The driver was also fine. He didn’t speak English at all, but was nice and deferential.
The highlights, of course: Sabratha and Leptis Magna.
A drawback: All museums were closed.
The Hotel and the food were also excellent.
Yes, I would recommend Libya Travel & Tours/Experience It Tours to others travelers interested in visiting Libya. Overall, the service was excellent and Eder was a very pleasant companion and guide.
Take care, and thanks again for your wonderful service.
The trip was in all ways a great experience to me. Abdul went the extra mile to make every sight and every stop to something special to remember. He had a lot of friends whom he contacted if necessary, and we really had a wonderful day in Cyrene when we saw The Temple of Zeus. There another Abdul showed up who turned out to be an archeologist who had worked with the excavations. He walked with us for hours lecturing about the history and the sights, and was able to open a closed museum which had the most beautiful items I have seen for a long time and could tell about the background and mythology. A most memorable day! (Read More…)
It was a great trip and I would certainly recommend it to others especially if led by Abdul. He is very knowledgeable and listened to our requests and tried to make everything go smoothly. The drivers were fine and food good. I didn’t think much of the Yefren Hotel as both the room was nothing like the other hotels and the service poor (No towels, soap or toilet paper in the room all of which had to be asked for.) They are under new management and it’s not much good. I understand that Libya is under difficult conditions at the moment but I don’t think that hotel will change much since it’s the only one in town and therefore doesn’t need to try much.
We all had a really good trip and much better than expected.
The trip was absolutely wonderful. Libya was just much much more than I expected – both the very friendly and welcoming people, the historic sites, sitting on marble pillars, walking on all the broken pieces of mosaic and ceramics and being allowed to touch everything – this in addition to the blue sea, the yellow sand, the “green mountains” and of course the still very near revolution and the meeting with people who had suffered. I’m still a bit speechless. (Read More…)
Let me say how pleased we are that we included Libya in our trip. We were extremely interested in all we saw in Tripoli and during the drives to Leptis Magna and Sabratha. We thought Leptis Magna was absolutely amazing and that Sabratha was incredible. We were very glad to have seen the Roman Villa of Sileen – the mosaics were truly beautiful and the position of the villa is breathtaking.
Our accommodation in Tripoli – Al Khan – was wonderful. The place itself was beautiful; the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the location was perfect. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tripoli.

Our experience in three trips arranged by Libya Travel and Tours was a very positive one with their professional attention to details, their experience and connections (from hotels to drivers to tour guides) in the country and their flexibility providing us with an excellent, enjoyable and fascinating time in Libya.
I would like to say a big thank you to Libya Travel & Tours, the company was very easy to communicate with from overseas and the Visa came through easily and with little hassle. The information that was provided was extremely helpful especially at knowing what to do when first arriving at the airport. The Teba Hotel was comfy, clean and friendly and the manager was extremely helpful and spoke good English. I would definitely recommend Libya Travel & Tours to anyone interested in visiting Libya.
