Happy New Year.  Our trip home was a safe and comfortable one.  Thank you for contributing to our first trip to Egypt.

Muriel Collyer - Cochrane, Alberta, Canada to Egypt - October 2001

Thank you for arranging the trip to Egypt. It was very well organized and I enjoyed every minute! The guides knew their subjects and were very informative. They made the subjects come to life and made the past very interesting. I found the different types of transport quite fascinating. The visit with the Bedouins was one of the highlights along with our dip into

the Red Sea. The Whirling Dervishes will be remembered for some time to come. Thank you again for all your efforts to make the holiday a memorable one. I wish you every success in the future.

*****************

Jo Bausch-Hammergren - USA to South Africa - Oct. 2001

Had a great adventure!  We loved Cape Town, and found the Shongololo to be filled with interesting people and exciting adventurous trips.  We really enjoyed the whole experience.

*****************

Sharon Slessor and Family - Canada to Egypt - Oct. 2001

The Trip was fantastic. Khaled did a great job of reorganizing. The information he gave us at each site was amazing. He really knows Cairo. The hotel was a great location. The Sherry boat was very good. Mosher, their guide was also very informed and gave great tours. The food was very plentiful and the staff always helpful. 

*****************

Pam and Roy Newell - USA to Egypt  - Oct. 2001

First, the guides, drivers and vans were truly outstanding and we were very pleased with the way things worked out. Pamela and I had a great trip!  I caught something while we were there, but Khaled took us to the emergency room in a hospital in Cairo, where I was quickly seen, diagnosed, prescribed for and was about recovered in four to six hours. since our flight had all been canceled and redone(because of 911), the work done by your guides in Egypt to get our tour put back together was outstanding. Really enjoyed working with you, and hope to plan another trip with you! 

*****************

Joseph Maadi and Carlease Howell - USA to Egypt and Greece - Oct. 2001

Reconfirm thanks to the exceptional effort of everyone, this was one of the BEST trips ever. The Tour Operator is definitely the best tour operator I have ever had the pleasure to deal with, and I owe it all to your planning and follow through. 

This was the 1st time ever to have such complete assistance at an airport arrival - stands out above all others worldwide. All the guides were not only knowledgeable but personable, and seemed to to bring history alive with their comments.It is obvious that the personnel with the local Tour Company are not only competent and professional, but also committed to "customer first" in everything they do. World Class Service. Excellent 6 Stars. You can plan on me doing more with A-Z Travel "Great planned Trip" more than I/we expected, 

*****************

Kimberly Leonard and 9 year old son Daniel - USA to Egypt - Oct. 2001

I hope your trip to Egypt with your family was wonderful and everything you expected it to be.  Ours was wonderful as well and Khaled and Ahmed were wonderful guides.  I also enjoyed traveling with Pam and Roy Newell. I did have a wonderful trip and felt very safe and completely catered to.  I would recommend and have recommended traveling to Egypt to my friends and family. We loved our trip. Daniel did not even want to come home he loved Egypt so much we were treated like royalty and Daniel was the "Prince of Egypt". 

*****************

Angela Atwell - USA citizen living in - Cambodia to UK - Oct. 2001

I had a fabulous time on my tour of England, Scotland, and Wales.  Those Cosmos tours are really great--so well-planned and organized.  Our guide was excellent, extremely knowledgeable and a good story-teller.  My favorite places were London, Bath, and Edinburgh.  Thanks so much for all your help in planning, 

*****************

Elinor Radlund and Friend - USA to Atlantic Canada - Oct. 2001

John and Jan Clark  - USA to Egypt - Sept. 2001

Thanks, again, for our wonderful tour.  Khaled is the greatest.John organized our pictures into a great album, and now lots of people are interested in taking trips to Cairo.  We're making sure they all know about A -Z Tours. We haven't stopped talking about what a great time we had ... among ourselves, and to relatives and neighbors. 

*****************

Nadine Greiner PHD - USA to Asia - Sept. 2001

*****************

Vijay Jois and Family - London, UK to Egypt - August 2001

We were very impressed with the fuss and attention to all the detail. We were accompanied everywhere by the driver and tour rep. All the hotel arrangements were flawless. The transportation, sightseeing, shopping etc. were well taken care of. We had the services of two qualified guides in Cairo and in Luxor. The people of  Egypt are extremely hospitable and seemed to go 

out of their way to help (at least that is what we felt most of the time!). I think we owe you our gratitude for arranging this tour at such short notice when most UK tour companies didn't want to talk to us at all.

*****************

Sundararaju Baktha - USA to Greece and Italy - August 2001

We had a fabulous trip and honeymoon. We appreciate all you did to make our two weeks in Egypt perfect. Khaled is such a marvelous individual and we became so fond of him. He is a world of knowledge, patient, courteous and always punctual. You are lucky to have him as a partner and friend.  Please pass our appreciation along to him and we would love to have him stay with us if he ever finds his way to Kansas City. Thanks to you both and all the drivers and guides along the way. We couldn't have had a more perfect time.  I see now that we could never have made this trip any other way.Give our love to Khaled and thank you so very much.

*****************

Lynn Richardson-Ludwigs, Group Escort - Maplewoods School, Missouri Group of 26 Art Students – Missouri to Italy – June 2001 

We saw so much and Laura was so knowledgeable about the whole country and its history. I hope that the students got something out of this. The hotels were absolutely delightful and much nicer than I expected. There were complaints of course, mostly about the food. That is the only thing I would change. All in all I would say it was an incredible experience for the participants, the boys loved it and were the "glue" of the group. 

Thank you for everything - I loved being taken care of, I loved the people and the places and the art. Oh, the day we went to the Vatican and Sistine, record breaking crowd. More than anytime since it has been open to the public. Of course!!!!!!!!!!!! The competition from guides was fierce to be able to be heard. Everyone made wonderful friends that will be long lasting. Thank you Avril for all your hard work, all your late nights, all the business you had to take from people and being so patient. You are a good person and I would like to laugh with you sometime. Lynn 

*****************

Aaron Noyes - US to Egypt - June 2001

Well, the trip to Egypt is over and I had a wonderful time!!  Khaled and Ahmed were very knowledgeable about Ancient Egypt and proved to be great tour guides.  They showed much patience as well, in dealing with the never ending stream of questions I asked.  Anyways, the trip was excellent and I would highly recommend it to others. 

*****************

Carol and Roy Morris - US to Spain and Portugal - May/June 2001

The trip was excellent. The tour Guide, driver and most of the facilities and side tours were very well done. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the highlights of Portugal and Central and South West Spain. Additional days in Madrid, away from the tour, is a smart thing to do.

*****************

Brendan at the SphinxBrendan Choi - US to Egypt - June 2001

I am back home now, but I wish I was back in Egypt! I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the tour. I really liked the culture and the people there. Seeing the ancient monuments was a must, but the best part of Egypt was all the friendly people I met and the culture they have. I can't wait to return to Egypt to see more of Cairo and the people, and definitely it will be a longer stay next time. It was very sad to leave Egypt yesterday.

If I could get a job in Cairo I would seriously look into it! Khaled was an excellent guide, he showed me around not only the tourist attractions, but also the cafes and streets of Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He accounted for every detail about my stay, making sure I was comfortable and acclimated to the new surroundings. He was also enthusiastic about taking good pictures! I don't know how you can ask for a better guide than Khaled.

*****************

Val Brinkerhoff, Art Professor and Gordon Galbraith - Brigham Young University - Photo Expedition to Egypt - April/May 2001

The sites are tremendous, your service was excellent. Khaled was wonderful...as you know. He really makes everything first class. He's a wonderful person in every way. He went way out of his way for us....he was giving, unselfish, intelligent, helpful....etc. ... a gem.  I have nothing but praise for the services you and he provided....Thanks for everything....

*****************

Erin Caley and 4 friends - Toronto, Canada to Coral Hamaco Beach hotel and Casino, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

The trip was great, I would go back there in a second.  I would recommend the resort to everyone, there is so much to do there, and everyone is sooo nice. Although 2 weeks would have been much better a week was not long enough. Anyways thank you soo much for everything and I will be sure to get back to you for our next one. 

*****************

D&S and Family - US Embassy Overseas to Egypt

Egypt has a powerful effect on visitors like few other places in the world. The West Bank tombs, the temples at Karnak and Luxor, the Pyramids and Egyptian museum were simply awe inspiring, and we are grateful for having expert guides -- Ahmed in Luxor and Khaled in Cairo -- to help us understand and appreciate all the sights and artifacts.  Besides being eminently knowledgable on ancient and modern Egypt, both gentlemen were great at putting up with us and our children, and we won't forget their good nature and warmth.  We especially appreciated our guides' willingness to add stops to our  itinerary which must have necessitated changes in their own schedules. All in all it was a tremendous trip, and thank you again for the arrangements you made.  We'll be happy to recommend your services to friends and colleagues.

Bruce Simmons and Family - Shell Company in Cameroon to Egypt

Mark Eichhorst and family - Canadian Embassy Isreal to Egypt

We just got back last night from a wonderful 3 days in Egypt. Khaled is a fantastic guide, and I am passing your website information around to colleagues at the embassy here.Anyways, thanks so much to you and Khaled for making our short trip to Egypt such a memorable experience.  My wife and I are already talking about our next trip;  this time we want to do a cruise!We will be in touch for our follow-up trip to Egypt, which will probably be in the fall. Take care, and thanks again.

*****************

Dale & Shirley Weimer & Katie Coder - Swansea, IL USA -From Renaissance Cruise Ship - Alex to Cairo Egypt

We  had a wonderful time in Egypt!  Although our time there was short, our tour was well planned to make the most of it.  Khaled was wonderful!  Not only is he a wealth of information on Egyptian history, but he is a pleasant, personable and caring guide.  We are very happy we decided to schedule our tour with A-Z Tours in lieu of taking the optional shore excursion offered by our cruise line.  When we returned to the ship and described our experience, our fellow travelers were so envious! Several couples and families requested your name and contact information for their future reference, and we gladly passed it on!

I also wanted to include a special thanks to Khaled for how he handled a potentially disastrous mishap that occurred just as we arrived at the Great Pyramids.  As I was stepping out of the van, I twisted and sprained my ankle very badly.  Khaled was very concerned, and immediately offered to get medical attention.  As I had done this once before, I declined.  Being the

caring individual that he obviously is, he purchased cold water to apply to the swelling (no ice was available).  He made sure that our tour of the pyramids, as well as all our remaining stops, were taken at a comfortable pace.  Later, he brought me a bandage and some ointment that helped tremendously throughout the rest of our vacation.  Thanks again, Khaled!

*****************

Katie, Dale, Shirley and Yuchun in Cairo

Yuchun Ku - Philadelphia, PA, USA - Egypt 

I left my mind in Egypt -- the people, the places, the history....are just amazing. Khaled is really the best teacher.  Not only did he teach me the history and the heritage of the country, but also he tried to help me understand the lives, the culture, and the religious practice of the modern Egyptian people.  I am so lucky that I could work with both of you to make this trip happen (Sorry for all the trouble I caused for my crazy schedule). Thank you very much!

*****************

Carolyn and David Galligan - De Los Campos,Tucson, Arizona,USA - Luxor & Cairo

So good to hear from you and it was also a reminder that we did want to let you and Khaled know what a wonderful time we had in Cairo. It was absolutely the highlight of the entire trip and that was primarily because of Khaled.What a special young man he is!!! When he came back with David's coat we were blown away and it did save his life during our time in Conn. and New York.
