Our Golden Triangle tour was exceptionally well organised (through SITA) with quality hotel accommodation, knowledgeable guides and a safe driver. We thoroughly enjoyed the sights and excursions. The flights (on Emirates A380 & 777) were very comfortable and accommodating for extra height / legroom....

Amazing hotel and grounds. Staff were fantastic as was the food. However it was seriously expensive in the hotel. Really good places to eat just a short taxi ride away at less than half the cost
