Subject: Re: How was our services - Egypt
Azza and Omar,
Thank you for email and follow up regarding your services in Egypt. One
word - outstanding! We were just thrilled with the professionalism, prompt
and courteous service, enthusiasm and knowledge of everyone and the way
in which we were made to feel welcome and special guests in Egypt. We
can't thank you enough for this experience.
Only one comment was one day was very, very hot and we might have adjusted
our visiting schedule to allow for lunch (in air conditioning) earlier.
I never thought to suggest until we just got to the point where we couldn't
go on and couldn't wait another hour for lunch.
Otherwise everything was well organized, professional and everyone was
very welcoming and friendly.
Thank you so much for making our trip so memorable and so easy to enjoy.
Jocelyne and Bob
