Africa - Fred, Anne & Al, UrsulaDecember 2, 2013
What a trip. Other than the small glitch concerning our arrival date in Nairobi (within five minutes, Pollman made that a no brainer) all went exactly as planned. Trafalgar/Brendan was excellent in Egypt. Our guide had a degree in Egyptology, spoke impeccable English and on top of all that was personable. The hotels were outstanding – absolutely first class – you just can’t complain about Hilton and Marriott International hotels.
Did everything we wanted and saw all the sites. Egypt was just great and have to commend Brendan.
Brendan/Pollman/Ranger Safari did an equal job in Kenya and Tanzania. Everything went flawlessly. For example, to go from Nairobi, Kenya to our safari point in Tanzania took three vehicle/location transfers and were all done seamlessly. Drivers were on time, luggage transferred, etc, etc., without any inconvenience to us. They all did an amazing job. The safaris were everything we expected. The hotels were all 4/5 star which boggled our minds considering most of them were out in the middle of nowhere. I have to retract my earlier email/comment about Brendan and Africa. They did a great job. Their sub-contractors are outstanding.
The Seychelles were breathtaking. Go-Way and their sub Creole Tours were right on top of everything. They looked after us as if we were children throughout our entire visit. Did get more sunburn than we would have liked but it didn’t ruin any of our good times.
The best part is we now have a great number of favorite beers and there are a lot of bartenders out there that now know how to make a Manhattan!
Just can’t say enough about the entire trip. The only downside, and it doesn’t involve you, was the 45 hour trip home. But even that doesn’t override the wonderful memories.
Thanks for putting up with us and we look forward to future trips. Al already has us going to some waterfall in the middle of nowhere, South America, so standby!
We filled out all the surveys we were requessted to in both Egypt and Africa.
