A La Carte Travel & Tours
During the Serenity Travels™ journeys to Greece in 2006, Israel & Jordan in 2009 and Egypt in 2009, I found Elia’s skills as a tour coordinator and companion unsurpassed and second to none.

Elia’s ability to speak several languages, plus his extraordinary and comprehensive knowledge of local laws & customs, negotiating skills and hot shopping tips have contributed to the most amazing and profound experiences of my life. 
Elia is a true professional, dedicated and delivers first class service every time.

A La Carte Travel and Tours are of the highest caliber when it comes to providing superb trip arrangements.  Travel Manager, Elia, made my “life-long dream trip” of exploring ancient Egypt all that I could possibly hope for and more!  The itinerary was superb -  from excellent accommodations, informative site tours, to the many seamless transportation details and timings - all were well taken care of for me.  This allowed me to have an awesome and outstanding travel experience!  I was able to relax completely and enjoy fully the many sites and wonders of Egypt.  Thank you!

I have found that Elia Takla's expertise as a travel manager goes above and beyond expectations. His services are excellent, particular his ability to tailor the trip to exactly what your looking for. I have traveled with Elia for several years now and always felt taken care of throughout the whole trip.

We’ve had the pleasure of traveling with Elia on trips during 2007 and 2009 to Egypt, Jordan and Israel. Elia made all the arrangements for our group’s tours and was our guide as well. From the first moment that we met Elia at the airport in Cairo, we knew that we were in good hands. Our initial impressions of him as a professional and personable leader only got better in the weeks that we spent with him.
Soon we noticed that he was very organized and reliable. His extensive knowledge of history and culture made everywhere that we went highly enjoyable. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is a great conversationalist. Everything about the tours was exceptional and we look forward to traveling with Elia and going on his tours again and again.

Elia went way beyond any expectations I or my group had with the recent 12 day trip to Egypt. Being an Egyptologist as well as the Travel Manager he took care of every detail from providing the amazing comprehensive itinerary to explaining all the details of the pyramids and sites. Elia even managed to provide us all with extra suitcases at the last minute so we could take our beloved treasures back to North America with us. I would not hesitate recommending Elia and he will be taking our group to Greece in 2012.
