Dear Omar,
Please feel free to use my email or the words below, and I will of course send pictures as soon as I can. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do to promote Egypt, and especially the level of service that I have received at every stage of our planning! I treasure your emails and I too am so looking forward to actually meeting in San Fran next year!

My words cannot begin to express our gratitude to you and your team , to the hotel staff, the cruise guys, the drivers, the guides and the other 85 million Egyptians, for the truly most inspiring of trips. Actually, to call it a trip is almost an insult! This was a magical adventure of epic proportions that reinvigorated tired spirits and reminded us of the true wonder of being alive!!

Being whisked through the airport by a friendly face with a smile that will be repeated everywhere we go is a start to remember. Travelling in air conditioned luxury through the crazy Cairo traffic with Sharif, chatting and pointing out the landmarks on the way to the hotel was another introduction to the welcome that we would receive at every turn in Egypt. Watching and listening to the sounds of the city from a beautifully appointed room overlooking the Nile, and realising that I was actually there and living my dream, was a moment I will treasure forever! A fantastic coffee, another welcome of such warmth and generosity, the next morning and I just knew that this was indeed everything that I had hoped and planned for, but with extra fairy dust on top for good measure! A truly world class meal in the Italian restaurant at the hotel in the evening set us up for the wild ride ahead of us!

The Pyramids are indeed magical and truly awe inspiring, but again the thing that I will remember is the smiles and the welcome. I find that if you wear a smile, you will always meet one in return, and the Egyptian people are true experts at smiling with eyes alight! Onwards to Luxor and the magical experience of the Nile! Travel in Style may be the name of the tour company, but my goodness, this vessel was style, beauty and sheer class! Our captain, Victor, and his wonderful crew made this voyage down the beautiful Nile the most wondrous of weeks that I have ever experienced! Think 1930's glamour and you might just get to half of what this Dahibaya is! A cocktail at sunset, fabulous meals under the stars, new friends where language is not a barrier but rather a reason to communicate using hands, eyes, gestures and schoolgirl French! A welcome into a village home, drinking mint tea with the family, barbecue lunches on the sandy shore beneath the shade of banana leaves, a wander through a farmer's fields whilst he proudly shows his home and crops, visits to tombs and temples where history began! Guides with the knowledge and inspiration to bring it all to life – there are no words to describe some of the Temples that we visited. Pictures and documentaries are what we knew of these magnificent places, but there is a piece of my heart still at Karnak, Luxor, and especially Philae!

My dearest Omar, my thanks to you and Azza are so great that you made this happen for us! You said that we would fall in love with Egypt and how very true that is! I have promised to return to this magical land, and it is a promise I shall keep.

My message to anyone considering travelling to Egypt is simple – Just Go! You will not be disappointed, but you will leave a piece of your heart there!

Hugs and kisses to the family!

From Ms. Cathy Turner - New Zealand - Visiting Egypt After the Jan 2011 Revolution:

Subject: Egypt has my Heart!!

My dearest Omar!!

What a trip!! You were right indeed that we were welcomed by 85 million Egyptians whose smiles could melt the coldest of hearts, and whose welcome eclipsed any other!!

The hotel was fabulous, the Sonesta Dahabiya was brilliant, the guides were exceptional and the service everywhere was worth a million dollars! We have such memories of the trip of a lifetime! I would say to every prospective tourist that you have, to just GO!! Egyptians will not call you clients, they will call you Guests and mean it! You will leave this beautiful country knowing that you just have to return one day!

Omar, I seriously cannot thank you enough for making everything so absolutely seamless for us. The people, the sites of tombs and temples alike, the magnificent Nile will live forever with both of us, and we promised everyone we met that we would indeed return one day, and this is a promise we shall keep! Egypt just gets under your skin in the most wonderful way. From the madness of Cairo to the tranquillity of sailing down the Nile, playing Backgammon with the boat skipper and magnificent meals under star strewn skies, an experience that cannot be forgotten!

As soon as I have sorted my pictures, I shall forward some to you.

Hugest of hugs to you and your team, and much love sent your way too!!
