The Island temple of Philae , dedicated to the Ancient Goddess ISIS : The Mystery of Isis

Two millennia ago the Mediterranean world was enthralled by the mystery of Isis:

"I, Isis, am all that has been, that is or shall be; no mortal man hath ever seen me unveiled."

Called Aset by the ancient Egyptians, the goddess was a Madonna in the Mediterranean tradition that stretches far, far back to the primitive Mother Goddess from Anatolia, home to some of the oldest human communities on earth.

Isis was the powerful and quick-witted protector of her son Horus, the Sun God. Ancient peoples throughout the Mediterranean regarded Isis and Horus as the perfect Madonna and Child. Another legend says she was also the mother of the fertility god Min who, judging from the depiction of him on temple walls, needed no help from Viagra!

Dear Omar,
We are home and I am working my way through a mountainous pile of laundry!
What a wonderful trip we had- everything was beautifully arranged from transfers, to guides to flights to accommodation. We thought the guides we had : Rania in Cairo, and Wa-el in Luxor were fantastic, informative, friendly and great with the kids. Both were terrific but I would especially recommend Wa-el, great person and couldn't do enough to make our trips special.
Josef transferred us around without a hitch, our private van arrived as if by magic each time we needed it.
We were so sorry that we couldn't visit Waafa at her house, but we had to get up very early the next morning(3am) for our flight to Luxor and it would not have been fair to the children to keep them out late. Our first day in Luxor was extremely busy so we were glad that the kids had some sleep the night prior. Our cruise ship was lovely, and everyone on board were so friendly and kind to us. We had fruit baskets in our room, and the chef came by each meal to see that everything was fine and offering to make the kids anything special.
What a relief it was to have everything organized for us, after a day of trekking around monuments, it was wonderful to see our van appear to whisk us off to the hotel or ship.
Omar, I can't say enough about how professional and friendly everyone was. Liam especially made a ton of friends both old and young, they all seemed intrigued by his blond hair and cute smile!We brought back Papyruses for Shona's classmates and she is regaling them with her travel tales this week.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending travelinstyle to any of our friends. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish and we hope to use your services again if not for Egypt, perhaps for another destination.
Many thanks to all of your team Omar, it was a "once in a lifetime experience" which we enjoyed so much.
Best wishes from us all,
Catriona, Bill, Shona and Liam

Hi,

Like you we had a fantastic trip with them last Feb/March. Omar and his team worked very hard for us before and during our trip to make sure we had an unforgettable 20th anniversary trip to Egypt and Jordan.

We agree whole-heartedly. This is an exceptional small travel agency.
Aside from working closely in advance to personalize our deluxe month-long trip to Morocco, Egypt and Jordan, their advice was superb. At each destination we were met at the airport by a local rep (in Cairo and Amman actually inside the customs area) and escorted to our hotels where they handled the check-in for us. At each airport departure, their rep handled the check-in and luggage check for us. We felt like visiting diplomats. When a small glitch in the itinerary occurred while we were in Cairo, I e-mailed the local rep and also Omar in San Francisco. Within 20 minutes the owner of the Cairo agency telephone me to assure me all had been straightened out; Omar had telephoned him immediately upon receiving my e-mail to make sure his client was well cared for. We cannot recommend them highly enough and believe it would be a mistake to plan a trip to this area without consulting them.
