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.

Available for private charter and private Nile Cruise. All cabins are outside state rooms.
Royal feluccas and Dahabbiyas bore a larger-than-life image of the pharaoh, seated on a throne, to be seen and venerated by inhabitants even along the most remote canal. In turn, imbued with the same “ka,” or spirit, as the living pharaoh himself, it would keep watch over his subjects and their activities.
Good Morning Omar,
Our itinerary was the best of anyone's in all of Jordan and Egypt. We did some market research for you. We met the A and K guide. He was our tour guide's cousin. Their Itinerary was not as good as ours. We also met the Odyssey people, Circle Tours etc. No one had an itinerary like ours. Ours was very complete and perfect. Good job Travelinstyle.The Hyatt in Cairo was the best (very convenient, loved watching the boats on the Nile every morning at breakfast). The Kempinski was the best. Rooms were out of this world. Spa was good also. Ditto for the Hyatt in Cairo and Sharm. The diving was the best in Sharm and Dennis and I have dove at the Barrier Reef etc.Food was good everywhere. Service can be improved on everywhere. They need to take lessons from the SouthEast Asia people. The camel market was the best as was Petra and Wadi Rum (great photos). The guides were good everywhere.Great job Omar. Your company is the best and we will be recommending your company to all of our friends who travel internationally. We also plan on using your company in several years to travel to Turkey.
