I have a background of many years in the Tour Operating business and formed the Company to provide a specialised service to discerning clients. I have a dedicated, loyal and well qualified staff. In a very short period of time we became recognised as one of the most capable businesses with operating facilities to International standards.
I’ve been involved with Laila Tours since the day it started in 2006. I am the daughter of Laila so it’s important for me to be by her side in the business. I used to be an Incoming Officer and Representative in Jordan and attending international conferences. In 2013 I came back to Bethlehem and started my work as the Deputy Manager of the office.
I have a BA degree in English Literature and minor translation at Bethlehem University. I have been working at Laila Tours since 2006 as an Incoming Officer and senior tour coordinator working widely with European, United Kingdom & Australian Markets with large volume groups. I speak Arabic as Mother Tongue, fluent English speaking and writing and conversational French.
I handle all the accounts for our programs and making sure that our tour programs are as affordable to our clients as possible. When time affords, I join our groups to assist them with making sure their program is going well. I have been working at Laila Tours since it started in 2006.
