Testimonials

Think about it from your customer's perspective; asking them to write you a testimonial sets them up for a massive case of writer's block! It's like writing an essay for a final exam. And that kind of "off-the-cuff" testimonial either tends to be so hyped ("Fabulous! One in a million!") or so vague and flat ("I like her style" "He's a great coach") as to be unusable anyway.

Let your client know from the start that you will do your best to earn a glowing testimonial from them.

Testing city

this is intro....

Hurghada

The city was founded in the early 20th century, and since the 1980s has been continually enlarged by Egyptian and foreign investors to become the leading seashore resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and hotels provide aquatic sport facilities for sailboarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorkelers.

Cairo

Cairo, Egypt has always been attracting travelers, dating back over 10 centuries ago to the time of the Mamluks. However, the beautiful, hectic, crowded, surprising, enchanting (and every other cool sounding adjective) city of Cairo is still in the eyes of the Egyptians the City Victorious, known officially as al-Qahirah or simply "Masr", the name for Egypt as a whole. Cairo is one of the world's largest urban areas and offers many sites to visit. It is the administrative capital of Egypt and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, such as the Great Pyramids of Giza on the very edge of the city. There are also ancient temples, tombs, gorgeous Christian churches, magnificent Muslim monuments, and of course, the Egyptian Antiquities Museum all either within or nearby to the city. As long as you're willing to loosen your senses and lose yourself to this majestic city, you can discover the sweetness of Cairo; the coziness of small cafes and the pleasure of strolling along narrow streets. It would be impossible to accurately describe Cairo fairly; it is truly one of a kind.

Sharm El Sheikh

One of Egypt’s top holiday destinations is Sharm el Sheikh. It is situated on the coast of the Red Sea and the Sinai Peninsula. Hailed as the ‘City of Peace’, it has become a world-acclaimed dive centre and the most developed of the Red Sea resorts. Sharm el-Sheikh has many activities, luxury accommodation and restaurants available. Most hotels and diving centres are situated four miles (7km) from the city at Na’ama Bay where there is a wide range of restaurants, clubs and shops that sell everything from local art and craft, clothes and jewellery. There are many dive sites within reach of Sharm el Sheikh such as Ras Mohammed in the extreme southern part of the peninsula. There are also the Straits of Tiran, wrecks and 28 sites located along the coast that are reached by boat. Na’ama Bay is ideal for dive classes, and provides diving and snorkelling opportunities for all levels without having to use a boat or car to get there. It is not all about diving and snorkelling though. There are plenty of water-sports available should you feel like doing more than just soaking up the sun. With a vibrant nightlife with casinos, discos and nightclubs, there is no chance of anyone complaining of boredom. Despite the extremely hot temperatures, given that the sprawling sand dunes of the desert are just a stones throw away, Sharm el Sheikh's attractions of hiking, camping and of course unforgettable sunsets make a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable holiday destination.

 

Marsa Alam

Marsa Alam, situated in eastern Egypt and on the west coast of the Red Sea, is one of the fastest growing holiday destinations on the Red Sea Riviera. Although until recent times a small fishing village, the introduction of an International Airport in 2001 has seen Marsa Alam's popularity grow, so much so that it is soon expected to rival fellow Egyptian holiday resorts Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh. The appeal of Marsa Alam lies in its tropical appearance, boasting rich blue sea coasts fringed with coral reef barriers, paradisiacal beaches and proud palm trees. Marsa Alam has as a result become a favourite of divers eager to explore the resorts numerous unspoilt diving sites where spinner dolphins and sea turtles swim freely.

Luxor

Luxor has often been called the worlds greatest open air museum, as indeed it is and much more. The number and preservation of the monuments in the Luxor area are unparalleled anywhere else in the world that know of. Actually, what most people think of as Luxor is really three different areas, consisting of the City of Luxor on the East side of the Nile, the town of Karnak just north of Luxor and Thebes, which the ancient Egyptians called Waset, which is on the west side of the Nile across from Luxor.

Taba

Taba was located on the Egyptian side of the armistice line agreed to in 1949. During the Suez Crisis in 1956 it was briefly occupied but returned to Egypt when Israel withdrew in 1957. Israel reoccupied the Sinai Peninsula after the Six-Day War in 1967, and subsequently a 400-room hotel was built in Taba. Following the 1973 Yom-Kippur War, when Egypt and Israel were negotiating the exact position of the border in preparation for the 1979 peace treaty, Israel claimed that Taba had been on the Ottoman side of a border agreed between the Ottomans and British Egypt in 1906 and had, therefore, been in error in its two previous agreements. Although most of Sinai was returned to Egypt in 1982, Taba was the last portion to be returned. After a long dispute, the issue was submitted to an international commission composed of one Israeli, one Egyptian, and three outsiders. In 1988, the commission ruled in Egypt's favor, and Israel returned Taba to Egypt in 1989

Aswan

Aswan, in southern Egypt, stands on a particularly beautiful stretch of the east bank of the Nile. Once a military station, it still houses a garrison of the Egyptian army due to its strategic location.

Decorated with palm-fringed islands it has more of an African ambiance with its numerous Nubian inhabitants. With their own language and customs, it provides a different cultural experience.

Although Aswan is every bit as touristy as Luxor, the town and its inhabitants are far more laid back and pleasant. A picturesque city, its attraction lies not so much in its historical sites, but in the peacefulness of a felucca cruise at sunset, a visit to the colourful market (Sharia el-Souq), or dinner at one of the floating restaurants on the Nile. It is a perfect base to visit to the magnificent Sun Temple of Ramses II, Abu Simbel.
