I am planning to fax the paper review form, but I wanted to send this to mention a few people individually.
In the New Jersey office I wanted to mention Maria Garcia. She is so gracious and patient in answering all my questions.
I had a wonderful time on my trip. The organization of STI was impeccable. The transfer personnel were always punctual and very friendly. I never had to wait for anyone, not even when my initial flight into Cairo arrived over a hour early!
My tour coordinator and transfer person in Cairo, Ahmed Salah, was especially good at his job. He was always smiling when he greeted me at the airport or picked me up the my hotel. He seemed to know everyone and was able to wisk me through the airport in no time at all. He made me feel extremely comfortable in a foreign country, which sometimes can be difficult when traveling solo. He laughed easily and was easy to be around. Anything I needed, he made it happen. Just like that!
I was also pleasantly surprised when I had a private car and a private guide in Cairo. When I asked my guide why I was not with a small group, he said "private is much better". I sincerely agreed and was not about to argue with him!
My tour guide in Cairo, Ahmed Dahab, was a really great guide. He was able to make Egypt come alive for me. What he taught me about Egypt and it's people, made the remaining days of my trip so much more enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable and was able to relay that knowledge effectively. He was also very friendly and offered to take my picture at all the sites. I very much appreciated that!
My guide, Moustafa Bahr, on the Lake Nasser cruise was also very good. I'm not sure if he works for STI or the ship itself. If he does not work for STI, maybe he should. We had a very difficult person in our group of six and he handled the situation very professionally. He is really good, and a very nice person.
Can you please forward this to the appropriate person or people at Sakkara Travel in Egypt. Thank you so much.
