Subject: Re: Information on travel organizations

We've done two trips with Overseas Adventure Travel and both were absolutely wonderful! The first was to Egypt with an extension in Jordan(2000). The last was Turkey's Magical Hideaways (2001). The groups are limited to 12-16 people, and the people in both our groups helped make the trip even more enjoyable--all travel junkies, well educated and adventurous. Ages ranged from 40's-70's with average in 50's-60's. OAT, with the small groups, uses wonderful hotels that are not the generic chain types but very in keeping with the atmosphere of the area--like the Mena House at the foot of the Giza Pyramids or one across the street from the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. The guides are all natives of the area.
