Dear Ashish, Thank you for the wonderful trip you had organized for us in Austria in the month of January. I have seen Europe number of times in summer but never seen Austria in the winters. My personal favorite was a small place called AACHENSEE. Though I will recommend the nightlife of Vienna as well.
Dear Ashish, Thank you for organizing a wonderful trip to Egypt for our family. All arrangements, transfers, guides were all fine. The Oberoi Cruise was exceptionally good and I'm enclosing the photograph of my favorite place in Egypt - Alexandria. Here I recommend you should put all your passengers for minimum 2 nights. Thanks once again.
