Holidays in Egypt
Dear The Holiday Place,
Having just returned from two weeks in Egypt with you I wanted to write to thank you for an amazing holiday. Despite having booked at last minute everything worked beautifully.
I was incredibly impressed with the reps who did all my airport transfers – they couldn’t have been more helpful meeting me at the earliest point possible in the airport on arrival and taking me as far through the check in process as possible on departure. The customer service was exceptional.
I was also incredibly impressed with my tour guides in Cairo (Ameira), Luxor (Mohammed Hassan) and in Aswan (Wael Mohammed Ali) all of whom were inexhaustibly knowledgeable and lovely company to have when visiting the different sites of interest. Happy to talk about anything with me it was a pleasure to meet them and get to know them. Their customer care was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future tours. It was disappointing to not go to Edfu temple while on the Nile. The rep explained about the carriage drivers dispute however parties with other tour operators on board did still make the trip.
Both the Mercure Le Sphinx and Oriental Resort were lovely hotels and made for very comfortable places to stay however I would like to make particular note of the MS Le Scribe which may not have been the most luxurious of Nile river boats but the staff were superb – from the boat manager all the way to the bar staff and housekeeping team. They could not do enough for you and were always so happy to help, or even just have a chat.
There was also a guide on board supporting another party from the UK who, despite my not being with that travel operator, was happy to help with any query I had and once again to take the time to chat and make me feel welcome. His name is Mahmoud Sadek and I would happily recommend him should you be looking for more guides in Egypt. I believe you should be able to contact him through Mohammed Hassan as once I met Mohammed in Luxor and he knew I was travelling on my own he contacted Mahmoud to ask him to look out for me. Just one example of the outstanding customer care I received.
My only disappointment was with regards to the cost of the trips where, despite having paid a single person supplement for the holiday I was then stung again for the trips significantly increasing the cost of the holiday once I was there. Having said that I would definitely travel with you again based on my experience of Egypt and would be very grateful if you could keep me up to date with any offers you have for single travellers.
