Good Morning Omar,
Our itinerary was the best of anyone's in all of Jordan and Egypt. We
did some market research for you. We met the A and K guide. He was our
tour guide's cousin. Their Itinerary was not as good as ours. We also
met the Odyssey people, Circle Tours etc. No one had an itinerary like
ours. Ours was very complete and perfect. Good job Travelinstyle.
The Hyatt in Cairo was the best (very convenient, loved watching the boats
on the Nile every morning at breakfast). You know I'm a big fan of the
Oberoi hotels, but the one in Cairo was too dark and too far away and
more important, no Nile view.
The rooms were great everywhere except the Marriott in Jordan. The entire
hotel needs paint etc. The Kempinski was the best. Rooms were out of this
world. Spa was good also. Ditto for the Hyatt in Cairo and Sharm.
The diving was the best in Sharm and Dennis and I have dove at the Barrier
Food was good everywhere. Service can be improved on everywhere. They
need to take lessons from the SouthEast Asia people.
The camel market was the best as was Petra and Wadi Rum (great photos).
The guides were good everywhere.
Great job Omar. Your company is the best and we will be recommending your
company to all of our friends who travel internationally.
We also plan on using your company in several years to travel to Turkey
P. S. The costumes and cartouches were the best. Thank you.
We will send along our DVD of Egypt and Jordan when we are finished.
