The pick up was on time . Our driver was safe and good fun . We booked last minute and they accommodated us . We were the only people on the boat . Seen the sights , waved to other music and had fun with the music and our guide was great at taking photos of us .

We had a great private sailing experience. However, I wish we planned to go a bit earlier since I didn’t realize the sun went down so early and it was dark for most of it. I believe two hours was also a bit much, one hour would have been fine.

They went for us punctually to the hotel. In advance communication to pick us up via what's app. Excellent. Punctual. Immediately after the felucca, a short ride on the Nile of just under an hour, but enough for when you have little time. Perfectly fulfills its mission. Carrying money for a tip is very good, because we were already almost without local currency. But an excellent ride for the price paid.
