I felt a sense of profound fulfillment on this trip. Some of my companions who has done the same thing with other tour groups told me they had a better experience this time around. First of all, the hotels were just a few steps from the places we visited so we had shorter trips on the bus. Our guide Ibrahim was really good at making sure we left early so we never experienced the long lines and wait, no time was wasted. We also were able to have masses at the shrines which the group really appreciated. How did he mange to do that! He never left us until we were safely inside the premises of the airport and past customs. Our small group really bonded and we became closer towards the end of the trip.
