Subject: May Trip to Egypt
We are from South Africa and just got engaged before our trip to Egypt, were very excited to celebrate our engagement on our upcoming trip.
To our surprise, Annelie, from Getaway Africa informed us that they have upgraded our hotel, boat and resort for the trip to make it extra special as a newly engaged couple. We were so happy to receive the news and were super grateful and even more excited!
Once we arrived in Egypt, we were blown away by how truly magical this country really is.
We were greeted by Ahmed Ali. He made us really feel at home and informed us about all the in’s-and-outs for our journey, we couldn’t have asked for a better representative and I would like to thank Ahmed for assisting us with everything while we were there. He even managed an earlier check-in at the Hilton in Cairo for us to get a nice shower and nap after the exhausting overnight flight.
Our Egyptologist guides, Mohamed Sheta and Mostafa Lotfi, were an absolute blast and gave us so much information and appreciation for the country and its ancient history.
Thanks Mohamed and Mostafa for everything (hope the sunburn is better Mohamed)!
All the temples we visited were remarkable, each one only gets better and better with no words to describe the overwhelming feeling when you are there.
We went on the gorgeous MS Ramadis ll Nile Cruise, the boat was so nice we didn’t want to leave. The staff and hospitality was exceptional! We really enjoyed the chefs (Mohamed and Mamhoud) assisting us at the buffet and explaining all the exciting Egyptian cuisine.
After the cruise we drove 4 hours to Hurghada with Simi (I think that is how I spell his nickname), we called the driver Smiley (or Manny in Modern Family) and they made sure we arrived safely at the most beautiful resort called Continental Resort. We were blown away (again)!
We couldn’t believe how fortunate we are to stay in such a beautiful place. This was truly the most spectacular holiday of our lives and we will never forget the special memories and friends we made.
We just want to say THANK YOU / SHUKRAN Getaway Africa for this magical and special trip we will never forget! Hope to see you all soon in the near future.
