Subject: Re: Werchick Jordan and Egypt report
As for Jordan, you can quote us that this was an exciting and tremendously
valuable add-on to our Egypt adventure. Petra itself is worth a special
trip, but the beauty of Wadi Rum is not to be missed. The guide (Nadine
Tali) assigned by your colleagues in Amman was absolutely fantastic.
She was bright, constantly cheerful, extremely informative and just
The interplay between Nadine and Adib, the driver, was also delightful; his English was pretty good, but Nadine would translate their comments for us and always kept us in the conversation. She made it a point during our drives to give us background on politics, history, food, clothing, social customs, etc about Jordan without our having to ask which made the trip particularly informative. [Also, and just for your own private information -- since I don't want to get her in trouble -- Nadine said the "panoramic tour" of Amman wasn't good enough; she insisted on also taking us to the Citadel in Amman, where we gladly paid the JD2 each for admission since it wasn't included in our package -- and we were so glad we did.
This is a very important stop and should be made a regular part of any Amman visit. The little archaeological museum there, with some of the oldest sculptured statutes every made by humans, fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, early examples of burial sites, ceramic sarcophagi, etc etc etc, made for a fascinating hour -- plus the great views of Amman, the Roman temple, and so on.] Nadine also made it a point to show us her own neighborhood and some of the upscale homes in Amman which gave us a good, if too brief, feel for the city. We even loved our stop at the Dead Sea, one of nature's own amusement parks. In six days we felt we had really thoroughly explored and enjoyed an important new tourist destination.
Just to wrap it all up, we came home thoroughly delighted with your
help with this trip. The agencies you worked with were obviously top-notch,
and we know it is no accident when this happens but is instead due
to your diligence in selecting them.
I only hope that we come across some people looking to plan a trip to the region so we can INSIST that they contact you at the outset.

I actually read your lovely note while in Petra, but was scooting out the door with no time to reply. (Which sums up the whirlwind of our two week holiday) :-) And then I flew home with the headcold that wouldn't end, so it's taken a bit longer to catch up than I expected.
What an incredible trip it was! It all went by in such a blur. Though I think some of that was due to many nights of little sleep :-) I think next time I'm going to remember that trying to see 2 months worth of sites in 2 weeks isn't a wise idea.
We've fallen in love with Istanbul, and the Arena Hotel. The dining staff in the hotel restaurant were one of the fondest memories if that city.
Egypt left us with a feeling of awe. So much history, so much to see, such friendly people we met. Sakkara Travel was above and beyond expectations. All of the service was wonderful, as were all of our reps, drivers and guides. Our Reps in Cairo and Aswan (Ahmed and Wahleed) were beyond fabulous, and we're specially going to miss them and our guide Maha and driver Mohammed as well. The whole crew just seamlessly sailed us thru everything, so we never needed to have a moments worry or problem. I wish my life was that carefree at home!
Jordan was such a change from Egypt, and our driver there, Nahzee (never got the right spelling), really made our stay there perfect. He was a real delight. We had a little confusion with our guide in Petra, since I wasn't aware he was only there for 3 hours and just wasn't ready for lunch at 10:30, but he ended up waiting for us to come back down from the rest of the hike thru Petra anyway, and we found him again in the restaurant eventually. So it all worked out in the end.
So we're back home and sorting thru our 4200+ photos now. That should keep us busy for the next year or two. :-)
you for all your effort to ensure our trip was one we'd always remember.
This was certainly the trip of a lifetime, and to add extra sweetness, all of our friends and family are jealous of the great time we had. We couldn't have done it without you!
