    Excellent idea! Unique experience thanks to the help of Heba and her guidance. She made a BIG difference and it would definitely have not been the same without her. The cruise offered amazing accommodations and food. They all made trips our relatively short trip to Egypt perfect. We visited every single temple with our amazing tour guide Ahmed who knew every single detail and genuinely wanted us to learn. Great experience! Thanks Heba and Egypt Gifts travel agency!

    I was travelling with my parents, both 65, so I was careful while booking. I selected this package after going through the reviews on (about the trip and Heba).

    Heba was constantly in touch and ensured everything was convenient. It is not easy to coordinate to such great detail but Heba was excellent. I also took her help to plan my other excursions in and around Cairo / Giza. She helped us with everything.

    Coming to the tour -. Everything turned out to be exactly as mentioned in the "what to expect" section. Sometimes we got delayed due to trains running late and traffic. So we had to shift and juggle the sightseeing, but all got covered.

    Our guide was Mohammed. A smiling and energetic personality. had good knowledge and his English was extremely good.

    The boat Company (Flash Tours) - this is slightly tricky, I guess the boats are managed by different agency (This package managed by heba is organized by Egypt Gift Tours) The crew looked grumpy, people hardly smiled at us there, except a few young ones at the restaurant. rest .. very very grumpy people, but don;t worry, your interaction with them will be marginal and insignificant. They gave us a room which was at the back end of the ship so was smelling of smoke and was slightly stinky (i read someone else also mentioned in one of the reviews) but the moment I mentioned this to Heba she got it sorted. (In fact I later realized that we were given a different type of room from than what Heba had told me before we checked in. I should have checked and informed her at the beginning)

    we were also very happy with the boat itself - Serenity - I guess it was named. I could see that we had balconies and spacious rooms. Most of the boats we crossed during our cruise did not have balconies like ours. So that was super fun.

    all in all, a great experience, Aswan, Abu Simbel, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor, all are fabulous places, Egypt was long in my check list and I am glad we got this trip done. The balloon ride was icing on the cake.

    many thanks to Heba for helping us with such a nice trip. We will highly recommend this package.

    It was a really nice time, the boat was very fancy nice food, nice staf, beautiful views especially from my window

    Heba, from Egypt Gift Tours was the best, helped me everytime I needed, being so kind and friendly :)
    All the guides were very kind also and knew a lot about egyptian history
    I highlly reccomend

    Since I booked the cruise I got contacted by Heba Haggag from Egypt gift tours to make the entire stay and transportation as smooth as possible which is has been.
    And I want to say a big thanks to our guide Hani Soliman for making this trip incredible and sharing his knowledge about ancient Egypt. We got to see everything we wanted to see and and left with so much knowledge.

    Outstanding value for the Aussie Dollar. From Abu Simbal, Philae Temple, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor and Karnak Temples, Valley of the Kings and Al-Dier Al-Bashari Temple to an absolutely fantastic hot air balloon over the west bank of the Nile. The Cruise Ship was comfortable with solidly delicious food and clean spacious cabins. The staff were friendly and keen to please. The tour guides were knowledgeable and timely without being pushy or overbearing. I don't think it would be possible to fit more into the itinerary without being too much. The Nile itself flows peacefully along green reed banks laced with palms - which is a welcome respite from the hussle and bussle of Egyptian markets and vendors. Egypt Gift Tours (Viator) seemed to do all that is possible to make this cruise package the highlight of our time in Egypt. Very highly recommended to tourists from any part of the world. Thankyou... 5 stars.

    Everything was extremely well organized and Heba and her team were very accommodating and helpful. They assisted me with an extremely last minute airport pick up. The guides were very polite and knowledgeable. The hot air Balloon team were like a formula 1 team getting us in to the balloon and being ready and our landing location to take us back to the hotel. The cruise was beautiful and the staff were very attentive and helpful. Everyone was friendly and I would definitely be back!
