This is a wonderful trip to visit the amazing places and temples of Egypt while being on a cruise. The boat was great with big cabins and big windows to enjoy the view, Spa and a pool on the top. The staff was very friendly and the meal very good! We were very happy with the organisation and proficiency of this travel agency!

This cruise was pretty good! The food was great, and all the staff on the cruise were friendly and helpful. Ayman was great to communicate with, for all the booking details. He checked up on me during the cruise over WhatsApp as well. But don’t be surprised if you don’t get the details for your flights or your ship’s name until the day before or so. You’ll have all the info you need in time. You just have to be patient. Our guide in Luxor and Aswan, Emad, was really good and knowledgeable. We had a very positive experience overall.

Amazing experience!From cleanliness to hospitality of the crew, I have nothing to say but praises. Arrival day, we were welcomed with hibiscus tea drink and were oriented around the area. Receiving guests/living room area made us relaxed and at eased from a long flight. The living room area is decoratively beautiful. Windows has nice curtains, furnitures are clean and fairly well maintained. We were very much comfortable in our bedroom. Bed linens and towels were fresh and beautifully arranged.I have no complains about our bathroom because everything was provided. Clean bathroom was a plus!Food was outstanding! Hot dishes and delicious. Seemed like were prepared with passion. The presentation of buffet was magnificent. My favorite were the salad bar and desert bar. There were so many options to choose from. I suggest a wifi hotspot in your room. Wifi in only available outside the rooms. Learned the real facts of ancient history while having fun. I highly recommend this tour!
