    • Greetings MBTITSIMUNI CHAUKE. Please contact the travel agent for any possible arrangements. Thank you.

    • Greetings Cory. I believe that can be arranged. Please contact the travel agent for arrangements.

  1. Hello Teresa,
    I traveled on Dr. Rashidi’s Italy/Kemet Trip in 2016.
    Would it be possible to travel on only part of the Kemet tour and include the Sudan?
    Thank you, Andrea

    • Greetings Joseph Joyce. Generally, Dr. Rashidi announces his trips months in advance, and he also gives them to me to post on his website. At this point, he’s made no announcement to me that he’s planning a 2019 Colombian trip. So very likely, the answer is No. However, you are free to continue checking back just in case. Thank you.

  2. Greetings do married couples need to travel individually or can they share space traveling and staying in accommodations?

    • Greetings Selena. Yes. Please contact the travel agent regarding possible payment plans.

  3. This will be my first trip with the group and I will be making a down payment on May 4th. I have a few questions that are pretty nuanced to cover in writing. I tried calling the travel agency but have not been successful. Who may I contact with my questions?

    • Greetings! I will personally reach out to the travel agent, and will also include Dr. Rashidi in the communication. Thank you for your follow-up!
