we had not just a great time - but truly truly a wonderful, amazing trip from every aspect. You went above any expectations I had and further more, all of the crew we dealt with were INCREDIBLY professional, well mannered, knowledgable, kind and I could go on and on. We had a lot of fun with them all! Really such a fantastic group and Zog and I felt so comfortable and taken care of the whole trip. It was as if we were with friends
I will send pictures to you once I have them. Would you believe Zog misses Egypt SO much and wants to go back right away.
I will be in touch again with photos
Thank you again - I don't know how I can repay you for the most memorable vacation.
