review 5 Jun 2009

Everyone was extremely helpful and everything went according to plan - we both enjoyed it very much. When we found we did not want to go to Abu Simbel - because it was one-tour-too-far with a nine year old, another option was worked out for us in Aswan- Mahmoud Nubi was a wonderful guide, a real character and very knowledgeable. Being able to check into hotels early was a real bonus because finding yourself fresh off an overnight train - with 6 hours to hang around to book into your hotel would have been dispiriting. I was pleased to be able to renegotiate start times so that we could enjoy a relax in the hotel at the pool too - those considerations are important especially when the hotels have been chosen for those facilities - there has to be time to enjoy them. I will return to Egypt and recommend your service to friends and family. Take care and thank everyone for their professional and friendly service.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It is hard to pick one single point from the holiday. The schedule we drew up included internal flights, road travel and a four day Nile cruse. It was good that the full plan fell into place with no hick-ups.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The tour operator did a fantastic job from collecting us from the airport on day one to returning us back to the airport on day 10. We stayed in three hotels and the four day Nile cruse, the accommodation and food was very good good. The transport provided was very comfortable and the drivers were professional, the tour reps spoke good English and were very friendly.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Donít know about impacts on the environment but there must be benefits to local people as Egypt depends a lot from foreign visitors.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Gauging by the reaction of a 18y (son) and a 16y (daughter), the holiday met all expectations for our family.
