“Dear Maha,

Thank you for designing and being present to execute such a memorable and delightful trip for me in Egypt. I evidenced your pride in your home country and saw why Egypt has so many wonderful qualities to admire. I enjoyed the excursions, learning the some of the history and am so happy meeting and sharing the two weeks with a wonderful group of travelers. I feel so lucky to have gone on this trip and will remember it always. I am your emissary in Dallas recommending Caravan-Serai and the excellent organization and execution of your tour.” ~Maryann S.
