Well organized, correct on-site service, available and friendly guide in French and Get your Guide assistance by Shorouk Efficient and always adapting to our requests to find solutions. Do not deprive yourself of the balloon flight c Is superb. The only negative point is the sometimes fast pace of visits because of the boat's schedules.

It was an excellent experience. I took this cruise with my husband, 4 children and a friend. The support provided by our getyourguide assistant, Rania Afifi, was absolutely magnificent. He was always contactable at any time and satisfied all our requests, efficiently and with great sympathy. The guide who accompanied us, Yaser Aswan, was very attentive, good professional and knowledgeable in Egyptology. The cruise was very pleasant, the rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The food was satisfactory The ship's staff were all attentive. I highly recommend taking this cruise.
