TESTIMONIALS

Hello Dora and Marco,

Just a quick note to say how much our group enjoyed the tour Escape to Tuscany. Hotel Villa Cappugi was superior in every way; Sabrina our tour leader was excellent; the bus and driver, Stefano, were really great, and all of the sites and tours were just fantastic. SO many highlights. I am so very grateful for the excellent advance work from Central Holidays!

Hi Karen,

Hope you are well. We just got home last night (and have to organize all our photos at some point) but I wanted to tell you the trip was OUTSTANDING! Every aspect, every connection, etc. worked out beautifully. The hotels were all wonderful, although the ones in Venice and Florence were challenging because they were on the streets that have all the expensive designer stores and it took us a long time just to walk down the streets.
Thank you and all involved for making this journey so perfect (you must have ordered perfect weather as well, because that is what we had.) I will send some pictures when I can. 

Kimberly,

Our trip was amazing! We had so much fun and saw so many great things! The hotels were perfect. Everything went so smoothly. You couldn't have planned a better trip for us. We even got to listen to the Pope speak in St. Peter's Square! Perfect timing I guess. We also spent a few hours in Pisa since our train ticket there was open ended. Saw the leaning tower, got our picture, had some wine, and then hopped back on the train to Florence. Four places in one trip ... not to bad! My favorite place was cinque terre. We saw all 5 cities, did some serious hiking, and even did some kayaking. The views and cities were breathtaking. The food and wine were pretty fantastic too. 
Thanks again.

Good Morning Maria 

I hope all is well with you and yours and that you are enjoying these spring days!!

I wanted to pass on the wonderful comments from my Nile Cruise clients. I guess they didn't realize that a river cruise is so very different from a "big ship" experience. BUT, all in all I think they had a fantastic time and the STI assistance in Egypt was excellent.

I want to personally thank you so very much for all your assistance throughout my clients numerous questions and concerns for their Nile Cruise. You have made it easy to always turn to STI and Central Holidays first when booking clients. 

Have a good day. 

Dear Jane,

We would like to pass on some comments regarding a recent booking you made for our clients to Petra. They came back to report that everything went extremely well and that they were very pleased with their whole experience.

Mr. Walid Wahib Fahmy, Tour Guide for STI Fam Trip 3-12 December 2012 Egypt

We recently returned from our fantastic cultural experience and familiarization trip to Egypt and Jordan December 3 - 12, 2013 with STI Tours and their Cairo office - Sakkara Tours.

What a fabulous experience and certainly a trip of a life time. All of your personnel are what made the trip so exceptional. This email is specific to your employee, Walid Wahib Fahmy, who was our first contact, and they say first impressions are very important. You picked the right person to be our first impression. Walid with his special airport security clearances met us shortly after we stepped off of our Egypt Air flight from New York. It certainly was nice to have his smiling face, and friendly personality waiting for us after such a long flight.
v Our first impression of Cairo and the Egyptian people was favorable due to his meeting us and taking charge right away. We were a four member group and one member had not pre-arranged for her visa. This could have been a timely delay, but Walid escorted our tour mate to the appropriate office and secured the visa in minutes. He then showed us the way to get through passport control, then onto the baggage claim area and out of the airport with astonishing ease and speed. Our small group was already talking about our unexpected and very pleasant airport experience by the time we boarded our transportation vehicle to our hotel. Walid got us checked in and shown around the hotel in short order. Early the next morning......there he was......his smiling face and greeting us and introducing us to our wonderful guide Ahmad Dahab, who took us all around Cairo on 4 December.

The next morning (5 December), we had an early departure from the hotel, as our flight left at 7am for Aswan. Walid was there, again getting us on our way, getting us checked in very quickly at Cairo Airport for our early flight. His reliability, friendliness, and efficient manner, allowed us to just relax and enjoy the trip.
v We had two more times where we would see him again. On the night of 11 December, we flew into Cairo from Amman, Jordan. Zipped through the airport and next thing we were at the Holiday Inn Heliopolis all checked in, with Walid taking care of all.

Too soon came the next morning, when we had to leave for our return flight to New York. We had a nice breakfast and no worries because we knew Walid was there and he was taking care of everything. Walid escorted us to the airport, provided us with an easy airport check in and all the while continuing to be informative and helpful. All of us appreciated his outstanding efforts, leaving us with fond memories of Egypt. We highly recommend Walid Wahib Fahmy as a guide and information source for anyone traveling to Egypt. Thank you for introducing us to him.

All of the services provided by Walid were what we would say..."He exceeded all expectations".

When I have re-told our trip adventures to people, I always tell them about Walid and the service he provided on behalf of Sakkara Tours / STI. I stress that we are seasoned travelers and when in Egypt, you want to travel with a very good company that has been in business for many years and can provide these services. What Walid did for us was priceless. We all stayed happy and stress free and this added to our overall trip enjoyment.

Thank you for providing this wonderful familiarization experience and I will send more emails about Ahmad Dahab our guide in Cairo and Ash our guide who met us in Aswan and stayed with us till we left Luxor. They too, are fantastic assets to your company.

Warm regards,

Hello Jane,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful Egypt FAM that I was so fortunate to be a part of. Everything was well organized and gave us the benefit of seeing a lot of Egypt that we may not have otherwise been able to experience. The hotels were excellent as was the food. We were advised not to drink tap water but the water used in food preparation was safe and "mummy's revenge" was not an issue. Our ground transportation was first class with excellent drivers. However, the best without a doubt, was our guide, Ayman. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to communicate that knowledge to us. I cannot praise him enough and I hope that STI realizes what an asset he is to your organization. Egypt has many treasures and one of them is named Ayman. I had never worked with STI in the past but, rest assured, you will be at the top of my list for clients that want to travel to areas that you service. I am so glad I was able to join this FAM and will promote STI whenever I can.
Thanks again
