'Hi Janet , just a short note to say thank you for a really incredible two weeks.  Accommodations, food, the people, sites, etc. were fantastic, and I still dream I am in Egypt !!!.  Keep up the good work!!'


'Just wanted to let you know I am back from Egypt. Both tours were absolutely great! Medhat is a wonderful guide, so knowledgeable and passionate about Egypt. As well, meeting and getting to know Kent Weeks was a marvellous experience. All the arrangements by AWT were excellent. There were no complaints whatsoever as far as I was concerned. I look forward to another AWT tour.'


Thank you Mike for the lovely photos, they are the icing on the cake, scenes I remember and scenes I missed.  The Long Cruise really was a wonderful trip.


'Thanks so much for forwarding the link to Mike's beautiful photos on the website.  What a wonderful reminder of a beautiful trip.  Thanks for all you have done to make it such a success. Best wishes, and thanks again for a beautiful experience.'


'Janet, I had a wonderful time of course - how can you not with such a wonderful crew, a super cruise boat, Medhat and Ehab to lead the trips.   I was delighted to meet Kent Weeks - what an unassuming and modest man he is.  I was also pleased to meet up with old friends and delighted to meet new ones.   The only down side - I had to come home ! Here's to the next time !'


'It really is time we wrote to say what a marvellous time we had on the Long Cruise. We were so thrilled that we had a chance to do it, and we really loved every minute of it. The MISR is the most beautiful boat to travel on, and what a splendid crew it has. Delicious food! The shore excursions worked fine, and as always we were delighted to have Medhat's knowledge. And Ehab was great as well.  A truly magical experience, which we shall remember for ever.'


'Dear Janet I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful input to our Nile Cruise. We will never forget our walkabout in Middle Egypt! This holiday was everything I hoped it would be. Once again thank you for ensuring we had a great holiday.'


'The Long Cruise - Thank you for the whole holiday,  all the elements of a 'proper’ AWT trip but in luxurious comfort.  Great.'


'We would like to thank you and all the teams at AWT and Traveline, for the wonderful Long Cruise.  It was an incredible experience, despite the heat!  Thank you also to Medhat and Ehab for their unfailing enthusiasm and knowledge about the sites we visited, both those on the schedule and others unexpected. The Misr is a great boat with a crew who really understand what service means.  We spent several hours just watching life pass by on the Nile, in the same way it has done, in some cases, for many hundreds of years. Thank you once again for a holiday to remember and a fitting way to celebrate my retirement.'


'A big thank you for another wonderful holiday.  We had the BEST time, and were thrilled to find Egypt just as vibrant and effervescent as ever. All those involved, from Medhat down, couldn`t do enough for the group and the tour ran like clockwork.  Dylans expertise was generously shared, and always with eagerness and unfailing good humour.'


'I just wanted to let you know that we had a marvelous time in Luxor last month.  Dr. Weeks was amazing and Medhat was also great.  He knew everything about the places we visited, and he was a delightful conversationalist on any subject, but especially Egypt.  Thank you for all your help in making this a wonderful experience.'


'Dear Janet, I arrived home yesterday evening after this wonderful week in Luxor and just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed this tour: everything was excellent (Medhat, the itinerary, the visits, the hotel, the group, etc.) and visiting KV5 with Kent Weeks has been an experience I will never forget. I am sure I will travel again with you in the future.'


'Tulay is an absolutely wonderful guide and I can recommend her to you on the highest possible terms. She always had something interesting to say about Turkish life, culture and archaeology and was completely unflappable even in the most stressful of circumstances.'


'Thank you for a most wonderful holiday.  I hoped to become less embarrassingly effusive in my response to the experience with time, but actually I found it most inspirational and am pleased to say that I am now beginning to study properly.  Each day opened up so many new topics to pursue in the future.  Thanks to you all at AWT.'


'Just to let you know that we had a wonderful time and would definitely travel again with AWT. Found the people nice, Barry and Medhat both amazing, the sites splendid, and the accommodation and food fine. I think it fair to say that we also grew very fond of the Egyptian people, and troubled by the current state of tourism and the economy, so can only join those working and praying for a relatively painless way through the current uncertainty. Again many thanks'.


'I can’t identify highlights (other than Nefertari of course) because the whole programme was superb. So, many thanks indeed to all concerned (including the office staff, always helpful on the couple of occasions we rang). We will certainly recommend you to any friends looking for a stimulating trip to Egypt, and hope we ourselves may travel with you again one day.'


‘We have now returned from our holiday and can only say what an amazing experience the whole tour was. The memories will live with me for ever and the way that everything slotted into place was a credit to AWT.’ LG


'This is a just short note to let you know how thoroughly pleased we were with our “Daughters of Isis” tour. Everything went splendidly and I was impressed with how well organized the whole enterprise was. The tomb of Nefertari and the day with Barry Kemp were certainly the highlights, though we will have many vivid memories to hold onto from all the various sites we visited'.


‘This is a great big thank-you to yourself and everybody who made this positively the best holiday we have ever had! Everything went smoothly from start to finish.’ EH


'I particularly liked the flexibility of a small group, and the unexpected surprises like the tour of the village of el Qasr, the cemeteries at Bagawat and Mo'alla, the tombs at Deir el Medina, the mountain path above the Valley of the Kings, the library associated with the Theban Mapping Project, etc.  I was unsure about Kharga and Dakhla, but visiting the desert was one of our favourite parts of the trip!'


'Morocco was a wonderful experience and I am sure we will return. The drivers were so caring and the people in Morocco were delightful. The geology was amazing and Colin made the trip perfect.'


'Arrived home safely Monday evening, weary but happy after a tremendous week in Luxor with nice interesting people. Thanks to everyone. Thanks to Steve for the expert guidance and to Janet for the great organization.'


'Thank you for a wonderful, wonderful trip. The scenery in Morocco is certainly spectacular with the mountains and the deserts and we would like to go again, just wanted to thank you again for your great company and ensuring I have fabulous memories of my first trip to Morocco.'


‘The whole tour was faultless &, I must say, the food & service was exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed the excursions off the beaten track. In addition I found the lectures fascinating & beautifully illustrated. I am eager to get out there again!’ JH.


‘What a splendid holiday! Both unusual and highly enjoyable. I am most grateful to AWT for organising it so well. What made the whole thing even more enjoyable was the company. I hope to meet up again on another AWT trip.’ MP.
