I had such a pleasant experience with Olé. Everything was fast and organised. Amr and Bassi are great mentors, I have learnt so much in 10 days than what I would have in months. Their tips on field and analysis post session were super helpful. They’re experts in the field and made the trip such an ease free from hassle. Also, the trip was filled with many places meticulously selected to reflect the techniques necessary to display well on portfolio. I had such a great time with my companions and highly recommend Olé to anyone looking to learn something new while travelling.
Been travelling to Europe over the last 6 years, this time I had the best time with Olé, the tour was fabulous. The organizers paid so much attention to every detail. From the moment we arrived until we left. Loved visiting hidden gems in Spain & having different activities. I would like to thank you for the huge efforts to make this trip outstanding, successful and joyful as it was. I would definitely join all Olé upcoming trips.
Olé was an amazing kickstart for my 1st trip to Europe. with Amr and Bassi, I had an amazing time exploring Spain as a traveller not a tourist, it was an overwhelming experience! I totally recommend anyone to travel with Olé, the experience is full of surprises and fun can’t wait to travel with them again.
For a very long time I have wanted to try travelling somewhere .. anywhere … just for the sake of trying what everyone is talking about .. Its self exploring, its refreshing, it will bring you back to life! Many words that I was not able to relate to, until last Eid .. I have traveled for the first time with 2 of my very good friends, and made a couple more good ones 🙂 I traveled with Ole to Spain, and what a great country, and a greater experience .. It was everything that everyone said it would be and a bit more .. I love the company, I loved the experience and I loved everything I went through in this experience .. good modes, bad modes, very relaxed modes .. I loved the amount of nature all around, and loved that I shared it with my friends .. its an experience that I would never hesitate to relive or go through many times more .. The trip was well organised and even though I felt we needed more time to enjoy more aspects of that lovely country, we were limited by our own vacation … so maybe next time 🙂 Thank you Ole! ♥
Visiting Italy for me was a dream come true and wasn’t possible without Bassi. It’s not easy to go to destinations you like if you can’t find the right travel companion, hence group travel with Olé was a great choice.
We moved between 3 cities Naples, Praiano – in breathtaking Amalfi Coast – and Rome, with each having very unique experiences, scenery and flavours to offer.
Wouldn’t have thought about Amalfi as a destination, but turned out a brilliant idea. In Amalfi, believe I blended well with the beautiful surroundings, colors, and majestic nature that took me to a state of trance, to levels of internal peace and serenity that I haven’t experienced elsewhere before. On that trip, lots of happy memories were created and that is what travel is all about.
First of all, I LOVEE TRAVELLING, and although I enjoy the planning bit, it can be a PAIN! But, travelling with Ole is different, they take on the pain of planning and organising every detail in the trip and they do an amazing job at that. Seriously, all you have to do really is apply for the visa (for which the process and documents are explained in detail by Bassi), and bring yourself to the destination. During our trip to Andalusia (Girls’ Getaway), Bassi and Amr took care of all the logistics and tours planning in an efficient and smooth way. The hotels selected were cozy and based in central locations within Cordoba, Granada and Madrid. It really helped that Bassi and Amr were already familiar with Andalusia and were able to advise re restaurants, cafes, historical areas, etc.
Overall I liked Andalusia, but my favourite place was a small town called Ronda. A very charming town with a lot of history. (We stayed there for a day.) Our tour guide (who is a local) was very knowledgeable and was able to infect us with his passion for the town and its rich history. This was followed by a picnic in a vineyard which was organised and setup by our tour guide. The weather was just perfect! We had so much fun that we were actually running around in the field like kids LOL! The day ended with us making / trying to help make a lunch (seafood paella and salmorejo yummm) in a local’s house (under supervision of course LOL), hosted by a very sweet lady 🙂 BEST DAY EVER.
I really enjoyed this trip, although I wish we could have spent more time in Ronda to explore it further. Oh well, In Shaa Allah next time :))) THANKS A MILLION OLE!
My first trip with Ole Travels was Bali yoga and wellness retreat and it was not just a trip it was a life changing experience. Everything was beyond any expectations, the whole experience was magical. Thanks Bassi Hamid for the effort, amazing arrangements, the photoshoot and most of all your spirit. Blessings
The ‘Bali Yoga and Wellness retreat ‘ was my first trip with Olé Travels, and not at any point did they fail me! Bassi was of great help from day 1; when I was still doubtful whether to sign up or not. She always answered my questions patiently and understandingly. Keeping the correct balance between encouraging me but without pushing. During the trip, I was super impressed by every other detail; the choice of the luxurious but cozy resort topped everything. Also, the trip’s program, Yoga and meditation instructor, program execution, the support, the following up and communication… everything was so clear and everyone was super happy! I felt confident with Bassi. Even more, Bassi took part in every single activity with us, she was more than just an organizer, she was part of the group. Some might not see this as an extremely important thing, but to me, it meant a lot. She’s fun and kind and takes beautiful shots too! Can’t wait for my next trip with Bassi Hamid and Olé Travels! Thank you
