March 2011- Visiting Egypt After the Uprising

Subject: Thank you!

Hi Omar,
We wanted to thank you for all the arrangements that you made for us on our wonderful trip to Egypt! We are so glad that we ended up going when we had originally planned. The Egyptian people were so warm and welcoming and seemed very excited about what they had accomplished since January 25.

The representatives, drivers and guides were all great, especially Emad our guide in Luxor, for the cruise and in Aswan.

I'm not sure if you know this but we were the only Americans on the cruise so we had a private guide after all.
There were several changes to our cruise/tour itinerary, and George and Emad made sure that we were given alternatives for the things that were not possible. Our one disappointment was that that cruise left Luxor at 10:30AM on March 13 so that our visit to the West Bank was quite short. If we had known that earlier, maybe our touring in Luxor could have been rearranged so we could have seen more of the West Bank. As you suggested, we were flexible! It turned out that we were able to see more in Aswan than we had anticipated . The Nile cruise was very nice – we only wish it was longer. We've been on several ocean cruises, but now we'll have to add river cruising to our future travel plans. It was quite lovely, slowly cruising by farms and small towns.

The other great thing (for us) about traveling when we did was that there were not too many tourists yet, so the sites were not crowded and we did not have to wait in any lines.

It was very nice having the private guide and it did make the trip more special. In addition to our daily tours, Emad did lots of special things for us and took us to some "off the beaten path" places.

We also would highly recommend the Movenpick in Aswan. The facility was beautiful; our room was very comfortable with decks on two sides; and the food was delicious. We wished that we had planned to stay there longer, even if it was just to relax by the pool.

Thanks again for EVERYTHING! This truly was the trip of a lifetime!

Egypt and Jordan Tour - January

Subject: traveler's intercom

My friend and I took a fabulous trip to Egypt and Jordan from Jan. 6 to Jan. 20 and then I went to Israel by myself from Jan. 20 to Feb. 1.

The private tour to Egypt and Jordan was arranged by Travel in Style ( ) and we dealt with Omar Zahor. Omar worked very hard to give us the trip we wanted. He worked with the Sakkara tour agency in Egypt and their guides were knowledgable, kind, punctual and did everything they could to make our trip perfect.

We spent 5 days in Cairo (Alexandria, Memphis, Giza, Egyptian Museum, et al) , 2 days in Aswan (including Abu Simbel), a 3 night Nile cruise, and Luxor. Then we had 2 days in Sharm el Sheik. All hotels, meals, tours, and internal flights were included. We then flew to Jordan with 2 days in Petra and one around Amman.

The trip cost about $5800 and was worth every penny. We saw lots of other large tours who spent alot of time waiting for bathrooms, going to souvenir factories, and generally moving slowly through crowded venues. We had the time we needed to see what we wanted to see and the flexibility to see things not on standard tours. For example, we wanted to see the Alexandria Synagogue and our tour guide Martok arranged it. If something looked interesting, we stopped.

Please feel free to e mail me with any questions.
