I travelled on a back to back trip to Egypt and Turkey with Exotic Vacations and was impressed with how well organized the tour leader’s arrangements were (confirmation of tours, procurement of airline tickets etc. ) I can’t say enough good things about our tour leader’s interpersonal skills, attention to details and general ability to be aware of the need of each individual traveler. It exceeded my expectations. The tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Our drivers were extremely punctual , reliable and skillful. I felt safe and well looked after at all times. I was impressed with the quality and service of the Hotels. Meals were all fantastic. The program gave us the right time of free time as well as organized activities. It is not possible for me to indicate how excellent the tour was. Everything was perfect and I would have to say it was the vacation of my life. I will highly recommend it to the people I know.

Thank you so very much Shyrose ,for having arranged the magnificent trip we took

Colette

We got back from India last night and this is a thank you letter to let you know that everything went extremely well. We were always well looked after from the airport, to the guides, to the drivers (they are amazing drivers considering the traffic in India), to the train. The drivers and guides were always on time, knowledgeable, pleasant, ready to help us.

Looking back on our trip, it was an amazing experience, as Liz said “there are some things that cannot be described, only experienced” this is so true of India. The hotels we stayed at were extremely luxurious, always welcoming. The lunches at all the different hotels we went to, were well prepared, delicious, very tasty.

Thank you very much Rose, for making our trip to India one of the most exciting, colourful, meaningful experience.

Fias

Shy, Mansoor, Arif and Shehzad were amazing and we really had a grand time, Thank You for all the help, we had a very positive experience.

You and the Boys in Dubai are the Best – You Guys Rock!

Kendrea

Just wanted to send you a thank you for helping me organize my early flight back. I’m happy to let you know that the airport taxi was in front of the hotel at precisely 7 am for me and was very helpful and friendly. You made what was a stressful time for me a little bit easier and I am extremely appreciative.

Mel

Dan and Velta Smith

Just to let you know that we retrieved the passports and flew into Istanbul OK. What a huge relief. We never thought such a thing would happen to us as we have travelled as independent travellers many many times all over the world, but as my husband likes to say “never say never” !!

Lorena & Emil

Just arrived back from Dubai and I am writing to thank you for the great vacation. It was truly remarkable, well organized and upto a high standard. The tours were all very well picked and totally showed the ambiance and hospitality of the Emirates.Everything was remarkable and thank you for the hard work you put into such a great memory.

Dr. Robert R., Mrs. Susan R.

We recently toured Turkey and Dubai with Exotic Vacations, and we thoroughly enjoyed both trips.

The cost was reasonable, and in the time available we experienced much more of the culture and history of these areas than we could have if we had been travelling on our own.

The local guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Having worked on occasion as tour leaders ourselves, we understand what is involved and we salute Rose for her dedication.

Avrum and Susan

Just a short note to say that we had a really good time in Turkey. The food exceeded my expectations and our tour leader was truly exceptional. Not only was he very knowledgeable and articulate but he bought history alive for us with his passion and enthusiasm. Overall the trip was both educational and enjoyable.

Thank you for putting together such a well thought out and interesting tour!
