“I have traveled guided before, but my husband hasn’t. In Egypt I felt we needed to have a Travel Director – without knowing the language and customs we wouldn’t have had such an amazing experience.
“One of the biggest benefits of having the Travel Director was the personal touch. He knew my husband’s interest in engineering, so he made sure he pointed out everything that related. I work in the medical field and, as an example, he made sure we saw the hieroglyphics on one of the temple walls that displayed medical equipment used in ancient times. He was awesome, he understood our interests and made everything so personal, so we got the most out of each experience.
“We really enjoyed talking also with our guides and Local Experts. On our Nile cruise our guide really enjoyed just talking to us about Egypt and wanted to learn about our culture, and what we thought about many subjects. Through him we learned so much about the Egyptian culture that we would never have had the opportunity to learn without going there and being amongst the local people.”
