Egypt with A & K (March 2012)
Egypt, March 2012
In March 2012 Susan and I traveled with Abercrombie and Kent to Egypt. In part this trip celebrated Susan’s 60th birthday and in part this trip was on our travel docket for over 35 years. In fall 2010 (just a few months before the January 2011 revolution in Egypt) we booked our dream trip with Abercrombie and Kent (A&K). Susan and I especially liked one of A&K’s boats (the Sun Boat lll), the thought of spending seven days cruising the Nile River, and nearly everything we read about the 12 day “Pharaohs & Pyramids” itinerary; we were not disappointed. The A&K program generally exceeded all our expectations, our 18 travel companions were a joy to be with, our Cairo hosts were extremely patient and helpful, the Sun Boat lll and it’s crew were outstanding (better than outstanding), and our guide and Egyptologist, Mrs. Azza Ammar, was a pure delight.
