Reservation 7878, passageners: M. Gail and Quentin W. Schillare.
Accomodation ratings: MS Mojito Nile Cruise: Good; Cairo Marriott: Excellent. Transfer services: Cairo: Excellent
Plus; Aswan: Excellent; Luxor: Excellent. Because of a flight delay coming from Dubai we arrived in Cairo on 5 March too late to make our connection to Aswan to meet the cruise. Achmed from the Sakkara Travel Group Heliopolis office met us and provided superior service getting us visas, passed through immigration and customs, rescheduled on a later flight and arranged for us to spent our waiting time relaxing at a local hotel, and getting us back to the airport for our flight. We will send a thank you note to Sakkara Travel. Other transfers were just as advertized. Escort and guide: Ashraf met our (late) flight in Aswan and gave us a catchup tour of everything on our itinerary and got us to the hotel boat. He was knowledgable, friendly and very helpful.
Airline within the tour: Egypt Air from Dubai to Cairo, Cairo to Aswan and Luxor to Cairo: Good. Dubai to Cairo flight was an hour and a half late because of problems in Dubai.
Recommendation: absolutely. STI did a excellent job with the meet, greet and transfer services. Important activities when traveling in the MIddle East.
