In the 1960s the dramatic, ancient Pharaonic temple Abu Simbel was threatened by the rising waters blocked by the new Aswan High Dam. First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy provided crucial support for the mammoth rescue project. Without her help, Abu Simbel might have been lost. Times change, leaders come and go, but some acts of support and generosity are remembered through the decades. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy loved Egypt, and Egypt still loves her.

Our family of 4 took a 3 week vacation in Egypt & Jordan in October 2008. The trip was organized by Travel in Style, San Francisco.
We choose Travel in Style as they allowed us a better variety of hotel choices and Nile cruise boat choices. We selected the Sonesta Star Goddess and the Four Seasons Hotels in both Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh.
After 3 days in Cairo, we took a week boat trip from Aswan to Luxor and back to Aswan . We then flew to Abu Simbel for the day, before heading off to the Sinai. From the Sinai we took a 3 day tour into Petra, Jordan. We ended up with a couple of relaxing days at The Four Seasons Resort in Sharm.
Travel in Style completely accommodated our many requests for various destinations.
As an architect, there were certain sites that were important for me to see while there and Travel in Style had no problem adding these requests to our itinerary.
Travel in Style, through their agents in Egypt and Jordan, provided terrific local support. The Guides (all Egyptologists) were absolutely excellent and the agents and drivers were superb.
Most importantly, throughout the trip we felt safe. Additionally, agents and guides were always flexible to our needs and requests.
We have no hesitation in recommending Travel in Style. It was a fantastic holiday on every level.
