Connie Henneghan party of 2 – USA to Egypt – December 2003
We appreciated all of the arrangements you were able to make for us so quickly.  Yesterday, I met a woman who returns to Egypt on Jan. 7th to continue work on a dig at Giza.  It was great to relive our trip with her.  Thanks for everything.

Macklyn Hubbell family – USA To Morroco – December 2003
I want to tell you that our trip to Morocco was well planned and satisfactory in every way.  Our guide/driver was excellent.  Thank you for assisting us.

Philip Nichols party of 2 – USA to Egypt – December 2003
We had a wonderful time on our trip.  We hope that everything is going well for A-Z Travels and for you.

Marjorie Scerbo party of 2 – USA to Italy – December 2003
We had a great time in Italy. We're glad we took your tour and really liked most of the people we were with. It's a great time to travel if you don't like crowds! We really loved Venice and Assisi. We've passed your name on to friends because we enjoyed it so much!

Linda Burgess & Nikki Powers – USA to Egypt – November 2003
There are many things that might draw a traveler to Egypt.  These are known worldwide.  Dealing with the esoteric differences, such as local customs, accommodations, facilities and amenities, security, language and interfaces both public and private can create lifelong memories that are wonderful or disastrous.

A-Z Tours International distinguishes itself through its employees.  This company has demonstrated world-class excellence.  Our vacation took us to Aswan, Abu Simbul, the Nile Valley (Edfu Temple), Luxor, Dandara, Abydos, Cairo, the Oasis of Fayuum, Sakara, Memphis, and Dashur.  From our first interaction, the company undertook each transaction with the highest level of integrity and patience.  Avril, M, H and Khaled performed with a service level and understanding that are unequaled.  We would never be able to pay enough money for the wonderful experience this team has created for us.  A-Z Tours International deserves its name.

M & H, as archeologists and linguists offered insightful commentary, humor and resourceful responses to our barrage of questions, opening a door for a peak into the life of the great pharaohs.  As history buffs, it would be impossible to glean an understanding of Egyptian life that would take years of study in 2 ½ weeks.  M ably filled in gaps from the many books we had brought with us to give us a more well rounded understanding of this ancient culture and its people.  This you cannot get any other way than through the experience of walking with the ancients accompanied by such an able guide.  From the beginning, M's sensibilities to our American customs and beliefs, his professionalism and patient nature set him above just a guide working for us but as a lifelong friend.  This, to us, is the highest complement we could give him. Thanks again

Thanks for everything!!

Gary & Chris Vrooman - USA to Egypt - Nov 2003
Avril and Khaled, we are home safe and still marveling at our trip and the sights of Egypt. It was a splendid trip. Congratulations to you both for running a first class organization. We will recommend A-Z Tours without hesitation to our friends who are considering trips outside the United States. Thanks again for making our trip special and thanks to you Khaled for providing us with so many insights about Egypt during your two days as our guide. I also want to mention that the guides were both outstanding guides. We only had Hella for one day, but we had Hamden for several. He not only was extremely knowledgeable but he also went out of his way to develop a personal relationship with us and that made the trip even more enjoyable.

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

Christophe Hubert & Alexandra Wooster - France to Egypt - Nov 2003
We found that the tour was really, really great. The organization was perfect, and we are very impressed with the manner in which you set everything up. We felt very well "taken care of" and really appreciated everything - we are very happy that we chose A-Z for our tour, as it took all the hassle out of travelling and enable us to fully concentrate on discovering a new country and culture and having fun!

Some particular comments: the airport pickup and drop-off is great. We were taken care of with lightning speed, even filling out our immigration form for us. No stress, no questions to ask, nothing to figure out - great! Our Guide went above and beyond his described duties as a "guide" to really make our trip fantastic. The other guides (on the day trip to Alexandria, Hurghada and Cairo)were all fine and we have no complaints about them. But compared to them, there really is a difference. He went above and beyond the daily described activities in the itinerary and was always available, even in evenings or for afternoons, and had suggestions of things to do and restaurants to eat for us when we were doning "non-itinerary" things, and really made the trip a delight. He taught us about local life (and about tipping), made sure we were never "bothered" by locals or merchants, and dealt perfectly with every situation that came up (for example, when we found out the boat was sailing earlier than expected due to the lock schedule, he immediately managed to rearrange the activities to fit everything in, so that we were able to take our Felucca ride and visit the Nubian Village in the evening before sailing - activities that had been scheduled for the next morning. Not to mention his extensive knowledge of Egyptian History and ability to share it with us at every sight we saw. We thought the tour was great! We haven't stopped telling our friends and family about it, and we talk about the organization almost as much as the sights! Thank you SO MUCH for everything, and we will definitely get in touch with you again for our next "big trip.

Claude Blanchard - France to Egypt - Nov 2003
We enjoyed very much our trip, it was the most interesting of our travels because we had a guide for us two. Your guides in Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor are very competent and kind. Khaled is very obliging. The rooms in the hotels were comfortable and the staff willing to help.

Val Sawhill and Daughter Roxanne – USA to Egypt – Nov 2003
tt was a wonderful adventure that will live in our hearts forever. We thank you. Avril - I asked you to take care of us, and you did. BIG TIME. If I had a checklist to compare what you told us beforehand with what we actually experienced in Egypt you would have scored 100%. And then I would have given you another 1,000 points of "extra credit" for all of the additional things we didn't expect but received anyway. Thank you. Khaled-- The picture of you on your website does not do you justice. You MUST find a photographer who can "capture" the goodness of your heart  and the warmth of your spirit. Had we seen you before we left we would have given you big hugs. Thank you.

Steve Mansfield and Partner – USA to Egypt – Nov 2003
Sorry for the delay in coming back to you. Yes all went well thanks .The guide was absolutely superb and looked after us extremely well. We filled out the comments sheet which we hope will be helpful  and constructive .The way the trip was arranged gave us a good insight into Egypt ancient and modern. Thanks for your help in putting it together.

Ardelina Martinez and Partner – USA to Europe – Nov 2003
Just wanted to let you know that I loved my trip. It was great. I enjoyed everything about it.  Everything  was fine and I'm happy because my mom loved the trip, especially Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels.....thank you for all your help.......

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

Wendy and David Redhead – UK to Egypt – Nov 2003
Yes thanks we arrived back in the UK safe and sound. We had a wonderful holiday and the Pyramids and Cairo have left us both with experiences and memories we will never forget. The insights given to us by the guides added immensely to our enjoyment. A big thank-you to all at A-Z in both Canada and Egypt for helping to give us such an exciting and enjoyable time.

PS - paying the extra for a Nile view was definitely worth it at the Nile Hilton. 

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

David Lee and Partner – Singapore to Egypt – Nov 2003
All went well, Khaled was smooth and very professional and so was his other staff ( to limits of their language abilities anyway! )

Sam Hsu and Partner – USA to Egypt – Nov 2003
We had an excellent trip. We really appreciated the personal service we received on the trip. Our guides were all very good. We only wish we had more time to spend seeing more. We are very satisfied with your arrangements and will certainly refer anyone planning to visit Egypt to you. Thank you very much.

Mary Ann Stephens and Partner – USA to Australia/New Zealand - Oct 2003
The day of departure fires in LA prevented our domestic plane taking off so we missed our NZ connection which made us a day late arriving in Auckland – The only good thing about the delay is that all the other tour members were delayed too.  Other than that the trip was fantastic.  New Zealand is truly a design of God..Thanks again for all your help.  If ever again we plan a trip A-Z will surely be our first choice.

The Tongs – USA to India & Egypt – Oct 2003
Thanks for arranging the India & Egypt trip.  Both my husband & I had enjoyed the trip tremendously, especially with the traveling companions that we had.  Looking forward for more trips with the same group, thanks again!

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

Phyllis and Steve Gee – USA to India & Egypt – Oct 2003
I think Ed said it all.  Thank you for putting a most enjoyable, interesting, fascinating, and awesome tour together for us.  We felt everyone was so cooperative in meeting our needs and requests in a most professional and friendly manner. Sanjay and Khaled really took good care of us.  We are pleased and appreciative.

I want to write you to to tell you about our wonderful guide in Cairo, Khaled Azzam, who is a partner of A-Z Tours International.  He was so professional, yet so warm and friendly, flexible, and so very knowledgeable.  He always made sure that things were right and if they weren't, he would solve them. 

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

Ed Chan – Tour leader – USA to India & Egypt – Oct 2003
We had a great time.  I was very pleased and happy that we got Sanjay and Khaled as our tour guides.

India:
Our India trip exceeded my expectations by a wide margin. Thanks in large part to Sanjay.  He is exceptionally good and I feel very comfortable that he will take care of anyone that I might refer to him. Sanjay got off on the right foot, by rejecting the first bus that picked us up as not meeting his standards.  His Cultural insights added much to our trip.  His invitation to the group to join his family and friends for a Dewali celebration was one of the highlights of the trip. Sanjay was very knowledgeable and I was very impressed with his ability to select top local tour guides. Sanjay provided many extras which were greatly appreciated.

Egypt:
Our trip to Egypt was very memorable and all had a great time.  The sights and sound were very impressive. Of course Khaled made a huge difference in our trip. His knowledge of Egypt was extraordinary. His love and passion for his country, culture and religion was infectious and added to our enjoyment.. Khaled was helpful dependable and very flexible. The many extras he provided to the group were exceptional. His little touch of giving the ladies of our group a flower for our farewell dinner demonstrated his attention to detail. We started out as a tour group, but Khaled made us feel like his guest and finally as friends.

Avril, once again, I want to thank you for all the work you did on our trip.  I greatly appreciate your quick responses whenever I had a question.  You have put together a nice team and I know you will have continued success.

Leslie Hayward and Partner – Manitoba, Canada to Atlantic Canada – Oct 2003
We had a wonderful trip.  The Maritimes are beautiful and seeing everything by bus was a great way to do it. Everything went very smoothly,  No delays caused by Hurricane Juan.  It was really a fantastic holiday.  Thank you for all your help. 

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

Vino and Brother – USA and India to Egypt – Oct 2003
The trip was very good and Khaled went out of his way to make it a memorable one by exceeding our expectations always. Thank you for all the arrangements. We enjoyed our trip to Egypt due to the good arrangements that were done by you and Khaled. Hope to do more tours through A-Z, next time more closer to your home Canada.

Mr and Mrs Bill Sillanpaa – Canada to Egypt – Sept 2003
Egypt is great.  We really enjoyed it and want to return. Aside from missing the Tomb of Neferititi the tour was great.

We had a good trip, the weather cooperated for the entire time. Thanks again

Lucinda Gilde and Partner – USA to Nova Scotia – Sept 2003
We're back and had a wonderful time.  At first I thought that 10 days would be too much time but it was not enough!  The area is incredibly beautiful and the people are so friendly.  We definitely want to come back.  Thank you for planning this vacation.  We enjoyed all the hotels/inns along the way. You did a great job in picking the places.  Also, the concert (Celtic Women) was fantastic.  We also got to see Jennifer Roland at the Louisburg Playhouse (she's excellent)! Thanks again

Hans Strohmer and Partner – USA to Morocco – Sept 2003
We are still in Europe. The trip to Morocco went well. Thank you for all your help.

Glenn Susser & Partner – USA to Nova Scotia – Sept 2003
We had a great time and were blessed with great weather.  We drove around a lot and took several hikes.  The scenery was super and everyone was very friendly. I highly recommend Anton's in Wolfville and Piper's Landing just outside Pictou.  Pictou Lodge & Auberge Giselle were both very lovely. All in all, we had a fantastic time. Thanks for
everything. Suffice to say we had a fantastic time. 

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

Nicola King  & Partner – UK to Spain/Portugal & Morocco – Oct 2003
The trip went really well, thank you. Our tour director, Graham Lye was excellent, as were both of our drivers. We need a holiday now to relax, it certainly was 'full on', but thoroughly enjoyable. Many thanks.

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

Jenny Essery & Family -  Manitoba, Canada to Nova Scotia – Sept 2003
It was a good holiday - long days though trying to cram in as much as we could in 4 days was a lot.  Next year we will take a few weeks to see everything.  Thanks again for your help.

Anne & Anisa Daud – Canada to Egypt – Sept 2003
Very good holiday.  We didn't get chance to complete the survey before leaving Cairo so will do so in the next day or so and mail it to you.

Steve Vazopolos & Partner  -  USA to Greece/Egypt – Sept 2003
On the whole the tour was very good with the 4 day Nile cruise being the highlight.  In Egypt your agency did a good job for us. We had a good time. 

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

Linda Monroe & Partner – USA to Greece & Island Cruise – Sept 2003
We had a great time. Everything we saw was wonderful and exciting to see places that I had only seen on the television.  It was truly a wonderful and awesome experience.
Everyone was pleasant and very cordial.  We had a great tour agent from Cosmos.  He not only told us about the sites, we learned a little more about Greece and its people.  The bus tour was great, we had some exciting moments especially when we thought the driver could not get through the very narrow streets.  The Aegean ship cruise was excellent. The Royal Olympic was extraordinary.  The food was great.  The people and crew were excellent too.  I would take a cruise with them any time.  I could go on. Thank you again for all of your help and assistance in making our trip a memorable one.

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

Ed & Marge Cleveland – USA to Nova Scotia – Aug 2003
Every thing was just great.  The weather was just right, only rained when we were on the bus or in the hotel.  Our tour guide, Debbie was wonderful and we would go on any tour that she was guiding.

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

Sue Cassidy & Family – USA to Nova Scotia – Aug 2003
The trip was great! We probably did a little too much driving. The Gowrie House was fantastic. The Fisherman's Daughter was just as great. We could have spent several more days. All and all, a good time was had. Thanks

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

Ray & Joyce Majorowicz – USA to Quebec – Aug 2003
Lots of photos to show the good time we had.  It was nice to have every thing planned so well.   We took off one day and just went sight-seeing and it was good to just see
what the country was like.  We do appreciate your help.  Thanks again.

Marsha & Gary Simpson – USA to Nova Scotia – Aug 2003
We enjoyed our trip very much - thank you for arranging it for us.  We went on two whale trips both with Mariner Cruises. Recommending Mariner Cruises would almost guarantee a great whale trip.  There is also a hotel on Brier Island - Brier Island Lodge to stay at instead of driving back to Digby each night.  Again thanks for doing the scheduling for us.

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

Jennifer Williams & Partner – Ontario, Canada to Nova Scotia – Aug 2003
The trip was lovely and all the accommodations were very nice. The Auberge Giselle was by far the loveliest room. Everyone we met in Nova Scotia was both welcoming and pleasant.

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

Susan Ford & Partner – USA to Egypt – Aug 2003
Our Egypt trip was everything we hoped for and much more.  Abu Simbul and Philae were dazzling, as much for the fact that they were moved as for their inherent grandeur.  The temples along the Nile certainly gave us an appreciation of the civilization that constructed them. And the pyramids ­their architectural splendor and their mystery were simply awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed the Nile River Cruise and the two days at Hurghada on the Red Sea were just what we needed to relax after 10 days on the go.

We found A-Z Tours after a web search and it appealed to us because it included excursions that were optional on other tours, yet the price was still very reasonable. I confess to being a little apprehensive at dealing almost exclusively via email, but Avril, your prompt and complete responses to our questions eased my fears.  The “small group” idea was particularly enticing, but imagine our surprise when we found that we were the only two people on the tour.  What a luxury!

All the arrangements went off without a hitch, from being met at the airport in Cairo and swept rapidly through immigration and to our hotel, through all of our subsequent travels until we were ushered through airport check in upon departure.  Our hotels were all top notch and we especially enjoyed the swimming pools at the resorts in Giza and  Hurghada!

We were extremely fortunate in our Cairo guide.  He not only gave us a great deal of insight into ancient Egypt, but he talked with us at length about modern Egypt.  Our discussions about similarities and differences in our two cultures were among the highlights of our trip.  He realized that we were as interested in modern Egypt as we were in ancient . Egypt and he went out of his way to include some pertinent extras in our trip, including coffee at a village café where we were offered fresh grapes by men at a neighboring table, a night walking around downtown Cairo, and a ride on the Cairo metro.  He even made us a couple of CDs of Egyptian music. We had a super trip.  Thanks so much.

Stewart & Teresa Stephen – New Zealand for USA Music Tour – Aug 2003
Really enjoyed the Cosmos tour through Nashville etc. Had a very good tour leader and a good bunch of people. We are going to contact Cosmos as our local  town, Gore, claims to be NZ's home of Country music. Once again thank you for your excellent service.

Mushtaq and Family – Canada to Egypt – Aug 2003
The trip was enjoyable but very hectic. The guides were very nice and we enjoyed their 1 on 1 attention that they were able to give us. You have 2 good people there for sure. We were especially thankful for getting us superb balcony views of the Nile from our hotels in Aswan & Luxor. On the night  before our return to Canada, they got us a Pyramid view room. I asked for some CD/DVD’s on those places and our guide duly obliged...which was nice of him.

I would say that this whole Egypt trip requires a minimum of 2 wks. But yes it WAS enjoyable and we did get to video tape (camcorder) most of the places so that now we can look back on it and show to friends & family. I have some friends already asking about our Egypt tour.

Dozie Ogbuefi (Parents) –  USA to Florida – July 2003
My parents enjoyed the trip to Florida. They are looking forward to having a similar type of escorted tour next summer in the west coast of America. Thank you for all your help in making the trip possible.

Dayle Harding – USA to Egypt – June 2003
I was amazed at how well the contacts were made to meet me at the many places I stayed, the train stations etc. - quite a work of art to organize everything so efficiently. And my guides were all superb, thanks for your efficient work in organizing everything for me in such a short time. It has been pleasant working with you and your agency.

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

Xia Wang & Partner – USA to Egypt – June 2003
Stephanie and I were very pleased with the entire package! The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Everything was on time as planned. We were very happy and satisfied with the hotels. I highly recommend Desert Rose Hurghada to everyone. The staff there were pleasant and the whole place was just like a fantasy. That place is simply beyond words... I want to go back again...Thanks again for your help. It was one of the best 15 days we had.

Margaret Schoolfield & Partner – USA to Egypt – May 2003
The trip was absolutely wonderful; from the moment I arrived at Cairo airport to the sad moment that I left. Egypt was everything I've ever imagined and so much more. Apart from the pyramids and temples, etc., the food was good, the people invariably friendly and welcoming, and even the bathrooms were clean. The so called 4 star hotel actually put me in a huge suite!

 I do want you to know that the A-Z Travel staff went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we wanted. They were all efficient and friendly, but I want to especially praise the Guide.  As well as being an excellent tour guide during the seven days he spent with us; he was an interesting teacher, an enjoyable traveling companion, and when I felt poorly for a day, he was very concerned and kind.

Please feel free to post any part of this e-mail on you web site as a testimonial. If any potential client wants to call me you may give them my number.  I'm also in the phone book. I've already given your info to one person at work, and several others have wistfully stated that they've always wanted to visit Egypt. I'll contact you in a couple of years for a repeat visit!

Pat Alfonsi and Daughter – USA to Egypt – May 2003
Trip was excellent. We feel we had an ultimate adventure. We loved our tour guide. He was the most flexible, knowledgeable, terrific person. He 's an extraordinary, conscientious young man. We really appreciated him. He referred to me as "Isis." I guess I always knew I was a goddess.

We liked the room at the Middle East Hotel. It was a large suite, and quite comfortable.  Same thing with the Bella Vista in Hurghada. Lovely property, nice food, great pool. The Novotel in Luxor - their grounds and pool are lovely.

We thank you very much for upgrading us to Lady Sophia cruise ship. It was wonderful. Cabin stewards were just wonderful. All in all, this was the adventure and trip I had hoped for, and loved learning about, and exploring ancient Egypt.

Derek Harrigan & Partner – Ontario, Canada to Egypt – May 2003
We enjoyed every minute of our vacation.  It was definitely a trip that we'll never forget!  Hotel accommodations, the tour guides, and all the sites were wonderful.  Thank you so much for arranging everything for us.  And thanks to the whole A-Z Tours team in Egypt, who made our trip an experience of a lifetime.  We especially enjoyed our time with our tour guides. Their knowledge and hospitality could not be beat.  As well, everyone we met in Egypt was so friendly and accommodating, it would have been impossible to not have a good time.

Marianne Kemp & Jamie Baker – Australia to Egypt – April 2003
Thank you the trip was amazing I really enjoyed it. Our guide was fantastic it was good to have the same guide with us at all times. We had a great driver and the happy smiling face at the airport was heaven. You have a very good business and we had a wonderful time. We will certainly use your company again for further trips. Thanks for everything you did to make it a great trip

Everything went very smoothly...well-organised and good people on the ground there. Well done.

Neil Dalmas & Partner – Egypt – March 2003
Thank you for helping make my lifelong dream of going to both Greece and Egypt possible.  It was wonderful, marvelous and like a dream!

You certainly had your work cut out for you with the two of us as clients.  Jeannine and I both work in the hotel industry in Las Vegas and had to work many, many hours in advance to prepare for us to be able to leave our responsibilities for 18 days.  I know it was a challenge getting everything ready for us in such a short amount of time.  Thank you for all your extra efforts on our behalf.

Greece was wonderful and the accommodations very good.  Our island cruise and bus tour were very nice and well planned. Egypt was truly the best part of the trip!  The agent was efficient, professional and represented you very well. 

After traveling to Luxor by sleeper train, we arrived to join our cruise at 5:30 AM.  The Luxor travel rep was friendly. In Aswan we also certainly had a diligent escort called Noor, who was professional and charming and represented the companies well.

Everything else was just wonderful.  The hotel in Cairo was splendid and our tour guide very good.  The cruise was fabulous and the ship very nice.  The agent was highly efficient in coordinating our transfers and letting us know what to do at every step of the way. We thought our last night in Athens would be at a very inexpensive motel at the airport.  We were very, very surprised and impressed with the luxury of the Sofitel.  Thank you! 


I have already recommended your services to all of my friends and feel that you provide a complete package that is well worth the money! Thanks again and I will contact you again in the near future.

Greg & Jodi Anderson – USA to Egypt – March 2003
Let me just start by saying Wow!  Egypt is everything we hoped it would be and more.  We could not possibly had a better time.  We had an excellent guide in every way.  He was very good about laying out our schedule to us in advance so that if there were any questions or other things we wanted to do he had time to take care of it.  His knowledge of the sites was super.  All of the guides we had were very good but one guide stood out from the rest.  The guide from the boat was wonderful.

Let me stress once again we had and excellent time and speak very highly of Egypt and A-Z Tours.  We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.  Thank you for a wonderful and memorable vacation.

Mr and Mrs Ralph Bennett - UK to Egypt - Feb 2003

Aparna, Mahesh and Sahaj - SFO, US to Egypt - Feb 2003
First of all, thank you for the wonderful guided tour you and your team put together when we were in Egpyt. It was serendipity that I chose you as our tour guide for the trip, since I simply got you off the internet, but now the only tour company I can strongly recommend to my friends and collegaues here, is A-Z tours. Do let me know if you want me to give you some testimonial, will be more than happy to do so. Cant forget Khalid's hospitality too on the last day. . Mahesh and I would love to meet up with you again.

Jeanette Groth - US to Scandinavia - Jan 2003
Our travel with your arrangements was so wonderful. Right now we are thinking of doing a safari to Botswana in June. Our trip to Scandinavia was a dream!!! We still talk about the fun we had. If you need a recomendation for anyone we'd be glad to vouch for your expert service.

Teng Thin Po and Wife - Malaysia to Egypt - Feb 2003
Egypt was beautiful. We truly enjoyed ourselves. I had been to many countries and Egypt ranked as one of the most beautiful. Below are some of my comments. The sight of the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx on our first day was awesome. We had seen many documentaries and read a lot about them but to really be there to see them is an incredible experience. Khaled and Mohammed were very good companions. The next day at Abu Simbel is another unforgettable experience. In fact, this is the monument that I wanted to see most in Egypt and we were not let down. Karnak Temple is another magnificent monument that took our breath away. Overall, we had a real good time. The guides were good and knowledgeable. Thanks for everything and please send our regards to Khaled, Mohammed, Zain, Saeed and everyone else.

Dave Galligan and Family - UK to Egypt - Feb 2003
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. Meeting Khaled, with his knowledge of Cairo made it a high light.

Philip and Lyn Hall - UK to Egypt - Feb 2003
We had the best holiday ever! Being the only ones that week also added to the pleasure. I have to admit I was very wary @ first, having nothing tangible about our holiday other than a few emails. Booking flights, HOPING someone would be @ the other end, however I am delighted my "doubting Thomas" thoughts were totally unwarranted & we had the most superb holiday.

We saw so much in such a short time yet there was still time to relax & unwind. The 2 hotels with their superb views of the Nile (& pyramids smog permitting) were breathe taking. After we saw the Giza pyramids & sphinx we thought that was the highlight of our holiday, even though it was on our first day in Egypt & thought well that was it, but time after time other things equalled it & for the life of us we couldn't single out any of the great places we visited as THE highlight of our holiday, however, it would be fair to say the one thing that is captured in our memory was the horse ride along the banks of the river Nile with fine views of Luxor Temple on the other side. You can travel by 'plane, train & automobile as they say & dash here & there, but to have time relaxing, just to meander through the countryside see how the locals live then it opening up onto the river Nile was really special. I do hasten to add it was the first time I had been on horse back so this is no keen equestrian waxing lyrical!

The way the week was organised was great & to readjust the week when I failed to report for duty on Monday was much appreciated & don't feel we missed much as a consequence. The knowledgeable guides, Khaled & Ahmed made the tour much more interesting & gave us a much better understanding & appreciation of what we were seeing. Our gopher Mohammed & the drivers were also great. Every one treated us as individuals rather than just another an coach load of sheep being herded here & there (I know it would have been difficult to herd us like sheep when there was only 2 of us but you know what I mean).

We have 15 rolls of film we are eagerly waiting to see & put in an album before we forget what was where, but we'll never forget this holiday. If you even need a reference then we would be only too pleased to give one. Many thanks to you both for a brilliant time, it was great meeting you & if you are ever in our neck of the woods then let us know as we'd love to meet up with you again. Our best regards & hope you firm goes from strength to strength.

Firdaus and Jennifer Bhathena - Hong Kong to Egypt - Jan 2003
The trip to Egypt was absolutely, positively amazing. Jennifer and I have a deep loving for the country and its people now. Your guides: Hala, Mohammed, (Luxor: Hassan, Raymond, Ahmed) were all professional and full of knowledge. We were a demanding group and the guides were there to deliver. No, I have not forgotten Khaled who stands in a group of his own. Very accommodating, flexible, professional always thinking steps ahead.

Your Company, A-Z Tours get my highest award. Jennifer and I travel frequent and we have not encountered a tour company as masterful as yours. Hats off to you! And best of all, your from NS. If you need some testimonials for your web page, let me know. Jennifer is a much better descriptive writer. Thanks again for everything and we will do business again!

Alexander Scott - Australia to Egypt - Jan 2003
The trip was excellent. The excellent guides who adapted the tour meant that I could fully appreciate the various sites visited. The organizers within Aswan were very helpful and appreciable. The guides in Luxor and Cairo were excellent with very high levels of knowledge as well as English skills. The time allocated for some parts could be reviewed with some days being combined. The accommodation was excellent but the food was variable.

Keith Morris - GSI Bahamas Cruise - Jan 2003
We had a great time. Didn't much like the Miami weather but the cruise line was just absolutely super. Our first cruise and we would definitely choose them again. Continental Airlines was great. Thank you for all you help.

We had a memorable trip to Egypt, with many highlights. The Sherry Boat with Saad as a guide was fantastic - and we loved that view from the Cairotel. Lots of pleasant memories - great place.

I did enjoy our trip and Khaled, Asruf, Mohammad, and Abdula (all probably mispelled!!) were great guides. I commend them all. Doing a trip like this in a small group was wonderful.Take care. It was a grand adventure for me.
