Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:

Jordan Discovery
Dear Marcela,

I want to thank you and everyone involved in our recent trip to Jordan. We had a wonderful time, it was a great experience.

We were fascinated by the ruins of Jerash and Petra. The north west, Um Qais and the Jordan valley were lovely. Our float in the Dead Sea was very entertaining and the scenery through the Wadi Rum was mesmerizing. Amman was interesting to walk around.

Our guide and driver were excellent; knowledgable and professional, yet friendly and relaxed.

Everywhere we went people were friendly and the country has a wonderful atmosphere of calm over it. Or, at least, it did have. It is sad and distressing to hear of recent events as when we there, the peacefulness that seemed to settle across the country was a delight. Even the hustle and bustle of Amman was calm, it was a very comfortable and safe place to wander around.

The food was delicious. My daughter, who had previously hated parsley, declared tabbouleh to be her new favourite food along with falafel, of course! We loved the lemon mint juice.

The flight was as pleasant as such a long flight could be. The cabin crew were lovely and the planes clean and comfortable.

My fifteen year old daughter loved every minute and updated all her friends and relatives with regular posts to Instagram and Facebook. All were very interested and eager for the next instalment. Everyone was as surprised and delighted as we were by Jordan.

We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who made this possible,

Thank you,

Hi Ayesha,

I meant to drop you a note yesterday but a little slow going from lying among the palm trees on the dead sea to -40 in Edmonton along with the usual jet lag has been a real killer.

The trip was outstanding in everyway. Your people in Jordan were excellent, it was cool at night (cold at Petra) but with the exception of one part day of rain weather was pretty good. As it was low season everything we went to see was not the least bit crowded. At Jerash we got in between the buses so I think there was only us and about 10 other people at the site. Even Petra was way below its usual attendance, because of that we got the dean of local guides (92 years old) and quite the character. Been guiding for 40 years.

Our driver/tour director etc was Mohamad and was truly excellent. He offered us an option to go over the mountains rather than around and to visit little Petra. You go from sea level to 5000 feet so we ended up missing a bit due to low cloud cover but the visit to little Petra made it well worth it. The only day it rained was when we were at the dead sea Movenpick, we mentioned to our guide that we didnt get to go into the dead sea. He suggested we could change our last night from staying in Amman to staying at the Movenpick dead sea. We did this and since we were second time visitors in one week Movenpick upgraded us to the suites in the private pool area, you gotta love that!!! You might consider offering this as an option since the dead sea isnt much further from the airport (1 hour) than the 45 minutes from Amman to airport. I am not much of spa person but Movenpick dead sea is really a beautiful resort and although Amman is a nice city it is just that a city. Might appeal to lots of people.

Each hotel gave us an upgrade as none were anywhere near full. Le Meridien in Amman was a slightly bigger room, Movenpick dead sea first time was a larger room with a better view, Taybet Zaman gave us a suite and Intercontinental Aqaba gave us a bigger room with a better view. All hotels lived up to their 5 star ratings, Taybet Zaman was our choice and we truly enjoyed it due to its uniqueness however there is nothing to do there and it a long way from Petra. Anyone else asks for it you might warn them about that.

Sightseeing was as complete as it could be, as far as I can tell we didnt miss anything.

Services - the guide was good as you could get and the local reps especially the airport rep who met us were extremely impressive in their knowledge and the fact they seemed to know everyone who worked in the airport.

I have enjoyed working with you, my requests were always dealth with promptly and very professionaly. These days that doesnt happen as much as it should. I will certainly recommend you to anyone else I know at CruiseShipCenters. Thanks again for all your help in making this a truly memorable experience.

Hi,

Just wanted you to know that we had a fabulous time on our trip. The scheduling details were perfect. Two days in Cairo was plenty. It's a very busy city. The Admiral cruise was a pleasant surprise. Food and service was amazing. The Sharm el Sheik break was a great idea. The Jordan stay was short but worth while. The night at the Dead sea Hotel was a good thing and the extra day in Petra as well. One day in Petra wouldn't have been enough. Some hotels were better than others.

Your reps in Egypt and Jordan were very punctul and the service was excellent.
We would definately recommend you and INDUS TRAVELS to anyone thinking of travelling.
Wishing you the Best durung the Hoiliday Season.

Hello Azi,

Just returned from Jordan and wanted to tell you about our experiences.We LOVED Jordan and the tour could not had been planned better, we saw a lot and all was wonderful. Your representative in Jordan is excellent!!!

The hotel in Amman [Le Meridien] was great as well as the hotel in Petra both hotels were excellent with excellent service.Mohammed [the driver] and Suhaib [the tour guide] were super, both very knowledgeable and helpful. Suhaib really knows his country and its history, it was really great to have him as a tour guide.
The meeting service at the airport on arrival was again excellent and the departure service was also excellent, the gentleman who met us really knew what he was doing and was VERY helpful.

All in all it was an excellent experience and I would not hesitate to highly recommend this tour. Thanks a million for all your help and I am sure I will be contacting you in the near future for our next trip...if you offer the destination we decide for next. We are looking at either China or India.

Azi, again a million thanks for a great experience.

Best regards,

Amber,

We am back now, but I am still trying to dig out of the hole left here at work.

The trip was great. All the logistics went very well, the hotels were fine and the transportation good. Petra was a great experience. We believe that although it was a lot of work to get there, and back, it was certainly worth the effort.

Thanks for all you did for us in setting up such a enjoyable vacation. You should feel confident in using the local offices you are associated with in Egypt and Jordan. They both performed very well for us.

We look forward to working with Indus Travels again. Happy holidays to you.

Thanks,

Hi, Dal and Praveen.

I thought I would send off a few notes to you both to let you know about the trip. First of all, to Praveen, thank you so much for making everything go so flawlessly. Other than the small hiccup in Cairo re Abu Simbel – which you rectified in jig time – everything was perfect. Here’s my take on everything –

Meet and Greets at airport – all brilliant. It is wonderful to have someone look after getting visas, luggage, driver and car and getting you to the head of the queue! Recommend it for anyone in a country that you are not familiar with. Some of the other tourists were having a bit of a time in Cairo.

Oberoi Mena House – Cairo – don’t use for just an overnight. No chance to appreciate the place and also, I got there at 7 pm and had to leave at 5 am. Never saw the light of day!!! The traffic in Cairo is a nightmare almost 24/7 – and the Mena House is quite a way away from the airport. Also, the hotel is aging – needs a bit of a facelift in some of the rooms. Service was marginal – not brilliant. Would either stay closer to the airport or plan an extra day just to relax.

Abu Simbel – brilliant tour – excellent guide – Egypt Air are wonderful. Would use them London – Cairo instead of “those other people”.

Oberoi Zahra Nile Cruiser – can’t say enough wonderful things about the boat, the staff, the service and the accommodations and food. Best cruising experience I have ever had – bar none. Especially notable was the small vans and a limit of six people per group – with our own Egyptologist – and many, many private tours of the temples. Some at night – for example the Sound and Light Show at Philae – were private. Only 40 or so of us there. Amazing experiences. Security excellent. Loved having a good size swimming pool – used it twice daily. Our Egyptologist for the week – Mona – was superb.

Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh – The property is magnificent – right on the Red Sea, my suite faced the ocean and was huge, but the service was ok.

Kempinski, Amman. Service more than made up for Sahl Hasheesh experience – these people were magnificent. My driver and guide, Sam, was awesome and I covered a lot in two days. I would have loved to stay for a week – much to see, loved the people, brilliant hotel (with one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been in). Would recommend you tell your clients to take at least four days – spend an overnight in Petra to get going early as there is so much to see and a few hours (after driving from Amman) doesn’t really leave enough time. In Petra, stay only at the 5-star hotel – the rest look a little shady. In Amman, it’s the Kempinski.

That’s it in a “nutshell”. If you need any further information, let me know. It was an incredible trip and worth every penny!!!

Cheers,

Hello Praveen,
Yes we did have a memorable trip and greatly enjoyed it. We did have, however, some anxious moments at the beginning of the trip. Having said this, I certainly don't want to criticize your local office. I think it was just a communication glitch which was resolved.

You should have received a copy of my letter to both your Egypt & Jordan offices for all their help in getting my medications back to me, having left them in our Sharm hotel room. I can only say that their "service was beyond "excellent" and was most appreciated .
Finally, I hope my comments are helpful to you Praveen. They are meant to be helpful rather than critical. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and are very glad we did it with your help.

Kindest regards and best wishes for this season.
