Hi Gerdie

Thanks a lot for the most enjoyable holiday of a lifetime. We enjoyed every moment of it and all the arrangements were excellent. We will surely make use of you again.

Thanks for organizing our holiday. It was great fun and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Everything went according to plan without any problems. The Egypt tour guides were exceptional making our holiday one big feast.

Regards,
Wynand Maartens


Annelie, thousands of thanks for all your arrangements and help with endurance and the plays and changes to our holiday, thank you for your prompt feedback and hands on approaches throughout - it was a truly unforgettable holiday!

Until we talk again next week!

Love greetings
LXX


Thank you we had a good time! Everything went very smoothly (except for the two hour delay crossing the bridge, but that is beyond any-body's control) - just sorry we did not book an extra day as there simply was not enough time to enjoy all the activities. It was a lovely surprise for my husband - just unfortunate that we had a room facing the bush, but then, we didn't spend much time in it so it didn't really matter. The Kingdom is ideally placed and an excellent choice.

Should we have the opportunity again we will definitely be in contact! In the interim, I attach a few photos for you.

Kind regards
Pascale
