Review of "Trailfinders"
Well they say one day back at work and you feel like you've never been off.......Well thay's how I normally feel after a holiday, but 8 weeks ago I took a deep breath, went to Dublin, got on a plane, told my Dad to stop drinking ( he's 78 ) and we flew to Cairo.
It feels like yesterday!
My Dad had decided he was going to Egypt whether someone went with him or not.
This was okay but as I have said he is 78 and had a stroke 2 years ago.
I asked my boss about time off and because he is worth his weight in gold (but dont quote me) he let me have a week (mid term)!
I WORK IN SCHOOL and you know how the kids arent supposed to do this!
I tried every travel agent I could. Trailfinders were my last choice as I thought they would be really expensive.
No other firm could get me weekend to weekend and couldnt understand why I couldnt fit in with them!
Normally I book holidays on the net and my travel insurance through Boots, so this was all very new to me.
I priced everywhere else first as I kept thinking others would be cheaper...but they werent. Boots insurance was much more expensive and that was with my Dad included with mine. Trailfinders was special for his age and still cheaper!
The hotel was amazing. Marble and gold everywhere. We had a view of the Pyramids from our window as requested. I have heard other people saying this was what they expected from their room with other companies, but didnt get it, but there was no such problem for us.
Breakfast was included. As were transfers to and from the airport.
Tours were booked for us and were wonderful. The people so friendly. We did have to haggle at the hotel to get staying longer in our room on the night we were leaving but we had been told this before we went and by that time we had haggling perfected.
I got them down from
£97 to £28 ! Yip thats how good it is to haggle in Cairo!
If you can find anything cheaper, including Le Meridian Pyramids, and tours make sure you can depend on the company. I would recommend Trailfinders to anyone.
Hope this is helpful.
