The cars and drivers were great -, especially in Cairo. We loved Hashim in Cairo- he was so good-natured, charming and thoughtful.

Egypt

The choice of accommodation was absolutely excellent throughout! Mohamed Saad, our guide from Luxor onwards, was outstanding and should be recommended strongly. We also hired an ornithological expert ( Shaban ) for a morning - excellent.

I really felt like Tom Frost listened and did his very best to meet my demands.  Very soon I was trusting him implicitly and placing a high value on his advice.  I am so glad I did!
