Carolyn & Mark in Egypt - Travelive Reviews

Carolyn & Mark, USA

Hi Mina,

Firstly, THANK YOU for a very special Egypt experience. It was amazing to have our own guide & driver everywhere we went, not to mention being met at the airport & having everything taken care of from that point, including checking into the hotel. It all went extremely smoothly. The local company you chose to use were professional, courteous & knowledgeable.

Secondly, we would like you to pass on our appreciation of the following people who really went out of their way to make our trip memorable:

Hassan & driver Amir – a great introduction to Cairo. Hassan REALLY spoilt us, even managing to arrange an upgrade to a suite for our last night in Cairo. Amr was a driver extraordinaire!

John & Amr – made our 2 days in Cairo memorable. John is a guide to be treasured. Ancient history came alive with him. Amr was another exceptional driver

Ashraf – a great guide for our cruise. He coped with my husband’s sense of humor, becoming a great friend.

Thanks again

Carolyn & Mark
