For those of you considering booking your next vacation with, I have broken down my feedback into each phase of the vacation to Egypt and Greece that my wife and I took this past summer.

Initial planning: I probably exchanged 50+ emails with Omar during the planning phase. At this point, we hadn't booked a trip or paid any deposits. Omar was very prompt and professional in providing advice and answering our many questions. When we travel to distant lands like Egypt and Greece, we really try to maximize our time and make the most of the experience. Omar provided the details we needed to plan a fantastic vacation and he also steered us away from ideas which his expertise told him would adversely impact our journey (i.e. if you take the overnight train from Cairo to Luxor, you will not get a restful sleep and will be worn out the following day).

Pre-departure: Omar advised us on the timing to seek travel visas, he assisted with finding the most convenient flight options, and calmed all of our pre-trip 'jitters' about what to expect upon arrival. We received detailed itineraries, packing list guidelines for our desert safari, and all vouchers required for our hotels, cruise, and tours. This was by far our most complex itinerary and everything was managed flawlessly.

While abroad: Our trip consisted of 11 individual flight segments through 3 countries, a 5 day cruise, a 2 day bus tour, a 2 day desert safari, and countless shuttles, transfers, connections, taxi rides, and horse drawn carriages. Travelinstyle serves as the hub and coordination center for all the local guides, Egyptologists, and other service providers on the ground. Having to worry about all of the details of the trip would have been a lot of mental stress that we didn't need or want while on vacation. We were very happy with the decision to leave this to Omar and the experts at Travelinstyle. The local guides took great care of us and went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed the trip.

Egypt is a wonderful place and full of history, culture, and adventure, but it can be quite overwhelming for American or travelers more accustomed to the US or Western Europe. Not all destination require such coordination and planning, but if you are considering a journey to Egypt, I would highly recommend that you connect with Travelinstyle.

Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Palestine Tour – April

Hi Omar,
As our wonderful trip in Egypt is coming to an end I would like to give you some new on my experience so far.
It is amazing we have to worry about nothing. They anticipate everything in advance and are constantly checking with us to see if we need anything more.

They have changed the itinerary when we were too tired and needed down time. They adapted their style of guiding to suit us. The team is wonderful. There are a few people that stand out for us. Upon arrival we were placed in the wonderful hands of Mohammed Mamdouh, who by the way is from Alexandria. He made all the difference for us from the start of our trip.

We were also invited to his family`s place for supper. His cousin Kheida and her sons Tawfik and Mohanet where amazing. They spoilt us like crazy. We really felt honored to be a part of their family for that one night. The kids were also so great that I felt I was with my own nephews. Hedra in Aswan is a young man who is wise beyond his years. We spent two days with him and were sad to let him go. Ashraf is an amazing guide - I have learnt so much from him. I felt I had a brother in Egypt. We laughed so much we didn't stop laughing and learning about the beauty of Egypt for three days. He took us to Om Kalssoom cafe a typical place for Shisha that was not touristic and we spent time there like old friends. Words are not enough to tell you how much Michael and I got attached to him. Soha our tour guide in Cairo has amazing knowledge. She makes history come alive and watches out for us like a mother over her children. All our drivers where fantastic - my two favorites are the ones in Luxor and on our second trip to Cairo after Luxor - I think his name is Assam - he looked out for us as if he was Horus our protector.

Thank you so much, Omar, for putting these beautiful people in our path through Egypt. It is making my visit back to my homeland extra special.
