The trip.me way of travel
Graciela kept me Informed throughout the process, all the way till we were picked up at the airport, in Costa Rica. Great personal service!
I organised a fairly complex private tour of Myanmar. During the quoting stage Pwint made a number of careless mistakes which was frustrating. However in the end everything did get booked as required.
As far as the experience on the ground was concerned this was impeccable and outstanding. We had several guides in different places and every one was outstanding. They all spoke perfect English and were very knowledgeable. Everything happened as booked without a hitch. Cars were clean, bottled water was supplied and the drivers were all excellent as well. What more can I say - superb.
Amira expertly coordinated a somewhat complicated schedule having numerous destinations and multiple travelers from several locations joining the tour a different times! Amira was patient and professional as it took over 80 emails to agree upon a final itinerary. We were so impressed with her skills that we insisted upon meeting her during our stay in Cairo to personally thank her for her services.
We visited the following sites over 20 days in Egypt, Jordan and Israel: Cairo Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, Citadel with Mohamed Ali Mosque, Old Cairo, Abu Simbel, Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor, High Dam, Temple of Philae, Nubian Village, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Esna, Luxor, Luxor Hot Air Balloon, West Bank (Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut and Memmon temple), East Bank (Karnak & Luxor temples); Jordan: Jerash, Ajlun, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea; Israel/Palestine: Jerusalem Old and New City tours, Bethlehem, Tel Aviv, and Jaffa.
Our guides and drivers were personable and attentive especially to the needs of two travelers with mobility issues. The guides were punctual and masters of all related subjects.
Although we paid trip.me $140 each for the VIP crossing from Jordan to Israel at the Allenby Bridge, it still seemed a bit confusing especially when asked to pay an additional 15 JD each for the Jordanian departure tax even though Amira told us to expect this.
Only one disappointment: We opted out of the Pyramids Light Show for a dinner near the Pyramids, which was overpriced ($45 each) and mediocre with poor service.
Since flights from Canada take 15 hours to reach India I wanted to spend 3 weeks vacation there. I was able to see something for 14 days that I liked but Amit was able to customise it to include Ranthambore National Park and some extra days in Goa, The trip was fantastic, guides were first rate and I had the same wonderful driver (Sundev Singh) for 10 days. I was met after each internal flight with a guide and driver. India is not a country I feel I could tour on my own as a older solo female traveler. To have everything looked after let me enjoy this wonderful country. If I return, I would book with Trip.Me again. This is my second trip with you- the first was an amazing trip to Egypt in 2017.Read More Read More Less
I can't thank Amira enough. From the moment I contacted her she has been amazing. Amira tailor made the holiday for me and every aspect was perfect. She answered all of my questions and gave advice to make my holiday perfect. I was very impressed with the service. Egypt has been one of my favourite holidays, the sites, hotels, restaurants, guides and transport was outstanding. I would definitely book with trip.me again.Read More Read More Less
