The representatives were prepared and the guides were knowledgeable!

We were grateful that Travel Discounters and Blue Sky were able to modify our tour to make up for most of the things we missed the first day. Blue Sky took such good care of us. The Jordan tour was also good. Our driver, Kamel, was nice and very experienced.

We got royal treatment in both countries Egypt and Jordan!

Everything went very well in Egypt and Jordan. The travel group looked after us from the time we landed until last day. In Jordan the agency looked after us. We got royal treatment in both countries. It is all because of you. You did an excellent job of arranging everything.
