Testimonials 


We're back from our Egypt trip which we had booked with you from Sept 18-Oct 2. Great trip! Thank you so much.  We want to take this opportunity to tell you what a great job our tour guide, Soliman, did.  He was excellent and really made our trip such a delight.  He is very knowledgable and informed, organized and we felt very safe in his care.  We would certainly recommend that you consider hiring him again for any future tours you may organize.
