  • This is a great cruise! The boat is old, but very well taken care off. The suites are big for a ship and have huge windows. So the views are amazing. The crew was very friendly. and the tipping at the end of the cruise makes it very comfortable. All the stops were very organized and our guide Ayman, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend and repeat.

  • My husband and I really enjoyed this trip. We were upgraded to a stateroom and it was very nice,roomy and clean. I loved having a huge window to look out as we went down the Nile River. All the staff was just marvelous. Everyone treated us as if we were kings and queens and always with a smile on their faces. The food was standard but good and plentiful. The stops were all at places we had wanted to see. My favorites were the Temple of Isis at Philae and Karnak Temple. We had Michael as our guide to show us the sites. I can't praise Michael enough. He was such a great guide. He knew all about the temples and sites we saw and he could answer any of our questions. I definitely would ask for him again. This was a great tour and I think the best way to see many of the sites in Egypt. I would love to do it again when we go back for another visit.

  • What a wonderful experience - cruising down the Nile River - stopping off at various temples and places on route to Aswan. We were on the vessel Amarco - our tour guide Tony was incredible - so much knowledge. The boat was very well equipped and nothing was too much trouble for the staff - we had a great time and would definitely recommend this cruise. We did an optional tour to Abu Simbel which was amazing - definitely worth the trip. The tombs at The Valley of the Kings were unbelievable and we paid the extra to see Seti's tomb - no words to describe it a very worthwhile recommendation from Tony

  • This was an amazing experience. Our assigned guide Tony Adel was wonderful. He, like all guides is a university trained Eygptologist and really knows his stuff. He made history come alive. We had originally booked for a group tour but VIiator upgraded us to a private tour. If I had known more when I originally booked I would have paid the extra money for the private tour. Tony was our guide for the entire 5 day trip.

    As far at the cruise itself, Viator also upgraded us to a Suite which gave us a little more room and allowed us access to the bridge. The staff on the boat were without exception very kind, helpful and hard working. The food was so so but ok. Our boat the MS Dolphin was a little worn but comfortable.

    We would highly recommend this trip the people of Egypt are very welcoming and we at no time felt under any sort of threat. Tourism is a way down from a few years ago and the tourism industry really needs support. As a result rates are very reasonable. We highly recommend this trip it is one of the best experiences that we have ever had while travelling.
