Dear Rana,

We just wanted to write to say how very much we enjoyed our trip to Jordan. With your excellent organisation we had a wonderful and memorable holiday. From first to last we felt extremely well cared for. Being met at the airport by Raid and whisked through the formalities was wonderful. Our hotel was very comfortable and we were glad to collapse into bed. Mansur met us again after breakfast and proved to be a most entertaining guide over the next few days. Our hotel in Petra was splendid – ideally placed for an early start, and even better for a more leisurely approach. Our guide in Petra was excellent – very knowledgeable and approachable. We learnt much from him and would advise any of your clients to engage his services – he really proved his worth.

The Intercontinental in Aqaba was one of the finest hotels we have stayed in. We felt really spoilt with wonderful views over the pools in the hotel grounds to the beach and the gulf beyond. Suleiman proved to be a most engaging guide for our trip into Wadi Rum which we really enjoyed and just wish we could have spent longer absorbing the extraordinary sense of the desert. Snorkeling over your fabulous coral sites was a most magical experience for us and we have come away with some wonderful underwater photographs.

Our trip back to Amman up the valley to avoid storms on the desert highway was a fine way to finish our holiday. Raid starred again and floated us though the airport bureaucracy as if on a magic carpet.

Since our return we have impressed all our friends with how much we enjoyed our holiday in Jordan and have sung the praises of your company and the way in which you looked after us. We are very conscious that we have only scratched the surface of your wonderful and hospitable country. We hope we will be able to return to learn more and when we do we will certainly seek your help again.

With sincere thanks and best wishes!

Dear Lamees,

You organised the trip in Jordan for me and my parents from 22.10.

-2.11.2006. I am back in Switzerland, my parents back in England and I would like to give you a little feedback about the trip.

It was an absolutely wonderful time in Jordan! We were warmly welcomed from the first minute at the airport by Raid and our driver Ibrahim Al Shoaibi. It didn\’t feel like visiting a foreign country, but we were welcomed liked old friends. I had never before been on a trip with a driver guide and didn\’t know what to expect. Ibrahim was wonderful and very caring all the time. We visited all the sights we wanted to see and everything we had planned as in the program.

Ibrahim is a very good and safe driver, we always felt very safe with him. He always turned up in time – as the Swiss are very much on time we expected to be waiting for him- but normally he was even a little early, what we appreciated very much. He took his time to show us everything and explained a lot of things – he knows a lot about the sights and the country. He wasn\’t just doing his job in a excellent way, he really enjoyed showing us his country and that was very special for us. We fell in love with the country, Jordan is so beautiful!

I am sure I will be back and if so I will contact you and ask for Ibrahim as a driver guide again. I will definitely recommend Jordan Direct Tours to my friends.

Please let Ibrahim know that we really enjoyed this holiday very much and that we thank him very much for this wonderful trip. He is just super!

Best regards,

~Saskia Weber (and Ineke and Alex Weber) Liebefeld, Switzerland

Dear Lamees,

I trust this email finds you well.

I just thought I would drop you a note to say thank you for organising our tour so efficiently.

Everyone we met from your company was friendly, efficient, helpful and courteous at all times. I would especially like to mention our driver Hassan who was very knowledgeable and flexible to our needs.

Thanks again – I have told everyone here to book through you if they intend to visit Jordan. What a wonderful country – and welcoming people.

Kind regards

~Matthew Aire

Dear Seif,

Just a quick note to thank you all for arranging our recent holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Jordan and your planning ran without a hitch. A special thank you must be said to our driver, Ibrahim. He was friendly, courteous, thoughtful and diligent. Nothing was too much trouble for him as he strived to ensure our every whim was catered for. He is a true asset to your business.

We will not hesitate to recommend Jordan Direct to our friends. Wishing you all every success in the future.

~ Simon & Sarah

Dear Lamees,

We are writing to thank you for everything you did for us on our recent trip to Jordan.

We had a wonderful time, and you organised a perfect trip for us. We know that we were quite demanding, changing our itinerary for the last two days. All we can say is that we are grateful for your patience and for helping us to do everything we wanted to do. We cannot remember the last time it was so easy to arrange a trip like this, and that was because of you and everybody at Jordan Direct.

We have to save a special mention for Mansour. He made it a special holiday for us, and we will always be grateful to him for looking after us as he did. He was more than our driver – he was our guide, our entertainment and our friend. His constant good humour, his kindness, his reliability and his patience made the difference. He went the extra mile in everything he did for us, and we cannot speak highly enough of him. It was through him that we learnt so much about Jordanian life and culture, and that we laughed as much as we did.

Please could you let Mansour know how much we enjoyed our time with him and send him and his family our regards.

We hope we will see you again soon for more adventures in Mansour\’s Samsung car!

Kind regards,

~  Paul and Julie

Dear Raed,

Natalia and I wanted to thank you for your help in organising our tour of Jordan last month. We very much enjoyed our time in your country. We loved the desert of Wadi Rum and were amazed by.

Petra. Please pass on our special thanks to our driver Mansour for giving us lots of flexibility and being sociable as well as a guide. As he was proud of his new car, we thought he might like the attached picture from Kerak.

Best wishes,

~  John & Natalia

Dear Lamees,

I write to thank you and your company for the highly professional service which you provided to us during our recent holiday in Jordan.

All aspects of our interactions with your company were excellent. Mohamed and Omar were friendly, efficient, and highly professional. They both went the extra mile to ensure that we had a very pleasant time. The tour delivered everything promised. Our thanks to your company for all for this, and best wishes for its successful future.

Best wishes,

~  Eamonn O\’Brien

Dear Rana,

I am now back in Australia and have spent time this week organizing my photos and reliving the wonderful experiences enjoyed in Jordan. Redencion is not back yet but I know she would like to add her thanks for the wonderful time we had. Omar was a real treasure as our driver and guide. He really took care of us and everything went so smoothly. Friends here, seeing my photos, have been amazed at the variety of experiences we had. The holiday certainly surpasses my expectations. Please extend our thanks to the team, especially Omar.

Best wishes to you all,

~ Rosemary Starr

Hello Rana-

We have just returned from our trip to Libya (Zegrahm Expeditions) following the trip to.

Petra that you arranged for us. I want to express our sincere thanks to you and your staff for a most wonderful trip. The visits to Jarash and Petra will be forever remembered and enjoyed.

All arrangements that you made were excellent and worked out with a comfortable time schedule. The Radisson SAS in Amman and Crowne Plaza at Petra were first rate hotels where we very much enjoyed our stays.. We appreciated very much to be met at the airport by Mohamed and our driver, Monseur Monseur. Our trip down to Petra was most enjoyable with Monseur Monseur and we had a very nice experience traveling in Jordan.

Again, thank you ever so much for all your arrangements and cooperation in providing a most wonderful trip and helping us getting to know and experience your country of Jordan and the most gracious people. We will certainly recommend Jordan Direct Tours to anyone interested in traveling to Jordan.

Sincerely with kind regards,

~ David and Betty Beech

Dear Rana,

My apologies for the delay in writing to thank you for organising such a wonderful trip for us. (Since returning home I’ve pretty much been working six days a week and catching up on chores on my odd days off.)

I think it’s fair to say that Jordan exceeded our expectations – we have never been anywhere else in the world where people passing in the street have said “Welcome” as they did in Jordan.

The tour you organised for us covered everything we wanted to see at a pace that wasn’t too hectic – we didn’t arrive home with that “we need a holiday to recover from the holiday” feeling. I think the only change we might have made with hindsight would have been to spend longer at Petra – we spent 7 hours at the site our first day and then 9 hours the second day before going back for the Petra by Night and we still didn’t see everything! Now that we have visited your country we find it difficult to believe that so many tour operators only allocate 6 days for a vacation in Jordan.

We also really appreciated the flexibility which allowed us to switch the programme for two of the days at the end of the vacation when I wasn’t feeling too well. And, despite the fact that our vacation was personalized to our wishes and we had an English-speaking driver with car for the vacation your charges, were amazingly competitive when compared with tour operators who would have herded us around on a coach in a large group and allowed us no flexibility at all and would definitely not have allowed us to spend as long as we wanted at the various sites.

As for Mousa, our driver, we can’t be too complimentary about him. He was extremely patient and good natured when we took at least three times as long at sites than the average visitor and was able to adjust our schedule “on the road” to accommodate all the extra time we were taking. He even took us to a small, but interesting site, Qasr Al Abd, which wasn’t on our itinerary.

We have wanted to visit Jordan for the longest time and have delayed in doing so because of the various political problems affecting some of the countries neighbouring Jordan. Now we wonder why on earth we waited so long and we are talking about maybe visiting Syria and Egypt in coming years. (Do you organise tours in those countries as well or only Jordan?)

Thank you again for all your help – we cannot recommend your company highly enough. We’re already trying to persuade some of our friends to plan holidays in Jordan.

Regards Beryl

~  Owen & Sean Doull-Connolly

Dear Rana,

Hope you are well and doing excellent business in the high season.

It’s very hard to settle down after the loveliest of holidays spent in Jordan. but I’m just about getting there.

I sent a copy of the above book to Hassan’s home address a week ago so maybe he has received it by now and is willing to put all the assistance contained therein into practice. Is he able to e-mail me via you? We had decided that this was to be a joint venture so we’ll both need a starting date to dispense, once and for all, with the dreaded weed!

Best wishes,

~  Jill Williams

Dear Rana,

What an incredible trip and so good to be in such safe, professional hands.

From the moment Harriet and I touched down in Amman until the moment, all too soon, we were on our way back home, we hadn’ t a worry in the world apart from lost luggage which Muhammed, in his inimitable style, rectified surprisingly speedily.

The hotels were excellent, particularly those at Petra and Aqaba: we delighted in our balconies surrounded by a profusion of tropical plants and fragrant blooms at Petra, with bats skimming the surface of the pool in the evening to drink and having the Red Sea in front of us at Aqaba and the sound of its waves lulling us to sleep.

The food was most impressive, so many plates and so many tastes and the banquet! in Wadi Rum was sensational as was an evening meal at the Petra Palace, such an array of food, quite exceptional for a third star hotel.

Hassan was the most wonderful, laid back, companionable person with whom to travel, he so had our interest at heart and the knowledge he imparted on all things Jordanian have made me eager to acquaint myself on the more recent history of your lovely country. I shall long remember his charm and willingness to give us the best possible holiday.

Beforehand I thought I may expire in Jordan because of the unrelenting heat but no problem, no humidity and what a wondrous pure light Jordan offers. We so enjoyed some of your country’s delights. We were humbled by the scale and majesty of the ancient sites, awed by the mosaics at Madaba, enchanted by the serenity and beauty of the vista at Um Quais and staggered by the natural phenomenon that is Wadi Mujib, mustn’t forget the sunset at the tranquil Dana village, etc.etc.

I thought I may be slightly disappointed with Petra, my expectations being so high, but the reality far outshone my wildest dreams and the first glimpse of one of the columns of the Treasury, spied from the Siq are indelibly in my mind’s eye.We loved the tropical feel of Aqaba and the somewhat unearthly scape of the Dead Sea surrounds and how about Wadi Rum!!!

The Rough Guide to Jordan informed that the people are welcoming and how true that is, we were treated with respect and courtesy throughout our holiday and such genuinely smiling faces.

I’m introducing a little of Jordanian cuisine into my life, want to keep the feeling going and I’m hooked already on cardamom in my coffee – hubble-bubble pipes are harder to come by!

Very best wishes to you all and thank you.

~ Jill and Harriet Williams

Dear Rana,

Just a note to thank you and Jordan Direct Tours for my recent visit to Jordan. From the initial organising, to the airport greeting to the travel around the country everything went to plan and the trip lived up to expectations.

I look forward to returning to Jordan to further explore areas I didn’t get to and neighbouring countries. Both Petra and the Dead Sea should be on every travellers ‘must see and do’ list.

Please pass my thanks to Mousa.

Best wishes

~  Arthur Cooper

Dear Rana,

I just wanted to write and thank you so much for helping me organize our stay in Jordan this past May. Even though I have travelled in the Middle East before, my time in Jordan was exceptional. Our driver, Hassan, was so friendly and funny, and helped us to get the most out of our tours and time in Jordan. Your staff made everything run very smoothly and was also very kind to us. I have come away with a great understanding of Jordan and deep appreciation for her people. My only regret is that I didn’t come sooner!

If there is ever anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be sure to let everyone here know what a wonderful time I had and how your company made that possible.

I hope all is well in Amman, have a great summer.


~  Erin Berg (and my dad, Doug, too!)

Dear Rana,

Thank I tried calling you personally before departing on Thursday but you were not in the office yet. I just wanted to send you a quick note on behalf of myself and my husband, many, many thanks for a fabulous trip. Everything was absolutely delightful and the experience and special moments will remain with us forever. Obak and the rest of the guides were very professional and charming and certainly made the trip a success. We truly enjoyed ourselves. I also wanted to thank you and the company for the special gift for my husband’s Birthday. It was certainly a big surprise for both if us and he was deeply touched. I am sure it is one he will never forget!

Rest assured we will recommend you company to our friends and colleagues here in Spain and hopefully, we will return to Jordan very soon.

With thanks and kind regards,

~  Alicia Gil


Just a quick note to thank you for all your help in arranging my recent tour in Jordan. Ayman was a fantastic driver and brought the country to life. A very kind and thoughtful young man.

Again, many thanks for all your help.

Kind regards,

~ Anna Mann (Booked by Vanessa Viela my daughter-in-law!)

Dear Lamees,

we have just come back from a most wonderful holiday in Jordan and are still overwhelmed by the beauty of your country!

We would like to thank you for all organisation and Raed for swishing us through customs and making things so easy for us.

Most of all we would like to thank Ibrahim, our guide and driver, without whom our holiday would never have been so fantastic.With endless patience for photo-stops and his sense of humour, with his knowledge of Jordan and his help in small difficulties due to our lack of the Arabic language, with his careful driving, with his introduction to Jordan food, with his easy way and welcoming smile, he made our stay unforgettable. It was absolutely fabulous to be able to see your country in our own time and we have felt safe and relaxed all time. From Umm Qais to Wadi Mujib, from Dana to Petra, the unbelievably beautiful Jordan landscapes are impressed on our mind and already we are dreaming of coming back again, see what we missed now and see again what we loved.

We certainly will recommend Jordan Direct to our friends who may be inspired by our hundreds of pictures and enthusiastic stories!

Thank you again, with best regards and special greetings to Ibrahim!

~ Alex + Ineke Weber

Dear Jordan Direct Tours,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance during our recent trip to Jordan. We were particularly delighted with the service provided by our driver, Hassan, and I would like to send him a special note of thanks.

It was clear to my husband and I that Hassan genuinely loved his job, and for this I am grateful. He made us feel extremely welcome and went out of his way to assist in any way he could. His knowledge of Jordan was wonderful and his manner friendly. It was a real pleasure dealing with him. Thanks!

I will be sure to recommend your tours to anyone I know who is traveling to Jordan.

Kind regards,

~  Krista Dobinson

Dear Lamees,

I have just returned from Jordan and was delighted with the arrangements we made. Mohammed was an excellent driver and we enjoyed the day together. The site of Qasr B\’Shir was most certainly worth the visit!!

Thank you again for so helpfully making the arrangements easy and please pass on my regards to Mohammed.

With very kind regards

~ Dr. Geoff Sims

Dear Lamees,

We had a very good holiday in Jordan, seeing all the sights that had been planned and more. Ibrahim was an excellent driver, got us to all the various places at the right time and made all the necessary local arrangements very successfully.

Many thanks for your very good organisation. We will certainly recommend Jordan Direct Tours to our friends, and indeed have already started to do so.

Best wishes

~  Roger Partridge

Dear Lamees,

We write to thank you for a superbly organised tour. Everything was perfect. Our driver Khalid was a very safe driver, and we thanked him for this. We will have no hesitation in using you again and have already recommended you to friends.

~ Peter Clarke

Nous t\’envoyons ce mail de Belgique pour te dire encore une fois que nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances en ta compagnie en Jordanie. Nous sommes vraiment très contents de tous les services et aides offerts par toi, mais aussi par Raed et tous les guides des sites visités, très contents aussi des hôtels où nous avons été hébergés !

Ce sera pour nous un voayge inoubliable et qui nous a beaucoup appris de ce pays et de son peuple si peu connus chez nous. Ici en Belgique, je n\’arrête de raconter ce voyage à un tas de personnes, car certaines seraient intéressées de venir passer ainsi leurs vacances en Jordanie et, biensur, je les ai rassurés, car beaucoup de gens en Europe associent tous les pays du Moyen Orient à la situation du Liban-Israel et de l\’Irak, mais je les rassure en leur disant que la Jordanie est à ce niveau un pays très calme !

Peut-être, et nous l\’espérons de tout coeur en tout cas, que certains de ces amis de Belgique viendront dans le futur passer leurs vacances en Jordanie et je pourrai ainsi les mettre en contact avec votre agence qui sait si bien tout organisé.

Donc, en résumé, ce voyage fut pour nous un enchantement et la découverte aussi de tant de richesses historiques !

En espérant que notre mail t\’aura fait plaisir , car nous pouvons dire maintenant que nous avons deux nouveaux amis en Jordanie, Ahmad et Raed, et que , tout naturellement, nous continuerons à communiquer entre nous !

Je t\’ai joint à ce mail les photos compressés que j\’ai prises là-bas.

Avec tous nos compliments et bonne continuation !

Ahmad et Nova !

Dear Lamees,

My diary has now arrived safely in London. Please pass my thanks to Raed and to any others at Jordan Direct who were involved in its recovery.

Susan and I had a really great holiday In Jordan and we were especially pleased with the friendly and always helpful service given by your company. We got a lot more from our trip and learned a great deal more about Jordan than we would have done if we had travelled independently.
Best wishes from Susan and me.

~ Bob

Dear Rana,

May we thank you for all the help we received from you organisation.

We particularly appreciated your flexibility when we were unable to get on the flight on Monday 24 April. We enjoyed our visit to Jordan tremendously and definitely plan another trip.

~ Sue Thorington-Jones

This is late in coming but we had a really wonderful time in Jordan and a very big thanks to you all. The organisation was impressive and we will certainly recommend!

Best wishes,

~ Liz Lewis

Dear Mrs. Rana,

I’d like to thank you for the perfect arrangement of our tour.

You staff has been very efficient at the airport and Mr. Ali has been very discreet, but always behind us if we need him. Jordan has been a surprise for me because it is really a modern country and the Jordanians also, because they are in love of their country. Everybody we met, at the hotel, or at a shop, also the police at the customs in airport, have been so kind and supportive.

Thank you again from all of us and, believe me, I\’ll recommend Jordan and
Jordan Direct Tours to all my friends.

With my best personal regards

~ Renzo Giacometti, Italy

Dear Rana,

Maybe I should have reported on our tour earlier but we have been exceptionally busy since we arrived home. I think too, that it is easier to do this now that a little time has elapsed since we got home.

So, firstly, thank you for all the planning that was carried out between yourself and our daughter in Bangkok. We really enjoyed our visit and covered a good range of sites in the time available.

It was good having your staff meet us at the airport and take us through the official process. I think having the hotel for a rest the first morning was quite useful. Getting through customs into Israel took somewhat longer and Aldo had been waiting about two hours for us to get through. (One or two other people ahead of us had some problem with their passports which seemed to take a lot of sorting out).

I think it was good to have included the visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem in our tour. Looking back we covered an amazing number of sites but I think it might have been useful to have had a little longer there or to be able to get some detailed brochures particularly of the Biblical sites. I have come home with a very generalised view of the area and have a good number of photos which I can’t specifically identify. May be (and maybe not) I might have remembered more details if we had been there longer.

Our driver, Hassan, was always extremely punctual and helpful and had an excellent vehicle. We were able to talk to him easily about the countryside and life in Jordan generally. His selection of guides at all the places of interest was always very good and we always had good places for meals. We found him friendly and very easy to get on with and he certainly helped to make out our the success it was. We were particularly impressed with the guide at Aljoun who has been working on the excavations there and had a personal enthusiasm for the castle and surroundings.

My sister-in-law found the walking a little difficult at times and decided not to return to Petra but my husband and I were pleased that we had gone a second time. We then had time for a visit to Little Petra which was also interesting. As well as the historical features we were interested in the general countryside so were pleased to have had the ride to and from the King Hussein Bridge on our way out of Israel. It was good too the we travelled on both the Old King’s Highway and the Desert Highway which gave us an opportunity to see a lot more of the countryside. Wadi Rum is a fascinating place.

Your country is certainly vastly different from anything we have seen and has a history way, way beyond anything here in our very young country. Touring in a small group with a driver personalises travel in a way no large group tour could do. So, again thank you for all the effort you put into planning a very successful tour for us.


~ Beth Campbell

Dear Rana,

How are you? My apology for taking such a long time to send you our review about our trip with your company from 19-27 August 05. We have started working the very next day after returning from Jordan and have been busy since!

First of all, we would like to extend our thank-yous to both your staff & you for arranging such a wonderful trip and to our friendly & easy-going driver Ahmad, for driving us from places to places in Jordan with no hiccups & no delays. We went from Amman to Ajlun and then to the south, Aqaba. We saw the magnificent Petra, the breath-taking Wadi Mujib valley and had such a fun-filled time floating in the Dead Sea. The hotels you had arranged were clean and well-equipped. We were very pleased with the Coral Bay Resort hotel at Aqaba and the proximity of the Petra Palace hotel to the entrance of Petra itself. We enjoyed very much the company of the Wadi Rum desert jeep driver Mohammed. He was such a jovial man who managed to spice up our 3-hour desert tour with his enthusiasm, easy-going humor & happy songs. The stay at Jebel Rum campsite was also a memorable one.

We walked through the 1.5 km Petra’s narrow siq in the dark after returning from the hike to the Monastery at sunset. We snorkelled in Aqaba and saw beautiful corals & reef fishes. We were so attracted to the exquisite ancient mosaics of Madaba. There are simply so many things to do in Jordan.

And, we must thank you and everyone from Jordan Direct Tours, for making our trip a very enjoyable & unforgettable one!

Take care and best regards,

~ Eunice Lim, Yeo Dai Wei & Lee Chon Gee (Singapore)

Dear Rana,

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed the tour. Everything went very well and we were looked after really well by Mensour. He was always helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble. He always drove very carefully and didn’t give us any frights!! All the arrangements went very smoothly and we have no hesitation in recommending your agency to our friends.


~  David & Sylvia Al-Dabass

Dear Lamees,

First, let me apologize for not having written to you sooner. We visited Jordan in May for 5 amazing days and had an absolutely incredible, wonderful time! Everything that you arranged for us was perfect! Our guides were informative, helpful and gracious, the accommodations were beautiful, the sight-seeing nothing less than breathtaking – it was one of the best vacations we have ever taken! As a matter of fact, everything was so wonderful that I would like to book another holiday in Jordan for next March. I want to take my father to see the wonderful sights that we visited – the crusader castles and Jerash, and most especially, to have the opportunity to visit Petra. My father is 75 years old and in good physical condition, with the exception that he is losing his eyesight. He has a passion for history, archeology and architecture, and I want him to be able to see the wonders of Jerash and Petra. I want to give him this trip for his birthday in March. I would also like to arrange for a day trip into Jerusalem, which as I understand it from our guide in Jordan, can be easily arranged with your company.

I would like to do a tour very similar to that which my husband and I did in May, but because of my Dad’s age, perhaps moving at a little different pace. Staying at the same hotel in Amman for a couple of days, the Marriot (I think it was), and taking a day’s trip up to the Crusader Castle and Jerash, but not going to Um Qais as that was a very long day – we loved it, but I think it might be too many activities in one day for my Dad. Then staying overnight again, going to the Turkish Bath (what a fabulous experience!), and taking a day tour of the city of Amman. Then driving down toward Petra and stopping for an overnight at one of the resorts on the Dead Sea (we absolutely loved our time there and I know my Dad would really treasure the opportunities to bask in those healing waters!) Then maybe we could take our day excursion into Jerusalem, I’m not sure whether you think we should stay overnight there or just make it a day trip – I will take your best advice on this. Then, back in Jordan, driving on to Petra and staying overnight there for two nights, as Ron and I did, with the opportunity for an extensive guided tour (we took a 5 hour tour when we were there – and it wasn’t even enough!). Our guide arranged to take us to Little Petra first, which was the absolute best possible way to do it. Then maybe we could visit Wadi Rum and then go on to Aqaba. We might like to fly home from Aqaba, rather than driving back into Amman. Is that possible?

Please let me know what kind of an itinerary you recommend. I will have a break from my classes starting in the second week in March, so I would like to start the trip around the 10th or so.

Again, thank you for the wonderful experience your company provided to my husband and I, and I am looking forward to working with you for my upcoming return visit to your beautiful country.

All the best,

~  Lesley Clear
