"I wanted to write to you this week to express my sincere thanks for the trip of a lifetime to India. My son, David, and I had the most incredible time in the Golden Triangle, thanks to you! The entire tour went without a hitch. We saw so many attractions on our short journey. We were enamored with the Indian culture, architecture and artistry. The hotels were fantastic, like you promised. The hospitality was unmatched. We appreciated the Kensington staff who met us at the airport and at each destination, and made sure that our checkouts went smoothly, as well."

We had the most amazing pyramid view and Nile view from our hotels. Our itinerary included the most magnificent sites and we were accompanied by the most informative and friendly people. I highly recommend visiting Egypt. It is totally safe. Thank you to everyone at Kensington for this experience. It was so beyond our expectations!"

"I’m back and I had an AMAZING trip from beginning to end – trip of a lifetime to be sure. Aseem, I wanted to thank you for all your help, advice and fantastic planning for this trip. The itinerary, accommodations and guides were phenomenal! As a single woman travelling alone, I have to be willing to get on that plane and have the faith there will be dependable, competent people at the other end for me when I arrive. And with both of my Kensington trips, my hopes were surpassed. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about this trip."

"Mohammed, our main guide throughout this itinerary was excellent and made sure every part of our experience was safe and entertaining. He often called ahead when we arrived at our next destination to talk to us by cell phone about our arrival and safety...we greatly appreciated his expertise and professionalism. Likewise, Mohammed (our driver in Cairo) became a good friend and was kind and courteous throughout.
The other guides during the trip....Sam in Luxor during the Nile trip and Samya in Sharm....could not have been any better. Great people, excellent guides and travel companions. I will think about them and this entire trip with great fondness. I will surely recommend Egypt and the Sinai to others who are considering a trip to the middle east in the future. With so much bad press lately, it was reassuring to have these people planning our every move and making things feel secure, inspiring and entertaining."
