Overall rating

This is nice evening relax and entertainment after a hot day sightseeing, we enjoyed it. The tour agents (Egypt Excursions Online via GetYourGuide) were well organised and remained in touch, the hotel pick up and going back were on time and easy, everything was fine. There is an international crowd taking part in the cruise which is great, but also local people, so it makes it even more interesting. The entertainment is for all, everyone will find something they like.. And there is a food, of course. Overall I can definitely recommend.

My dad and I had an incredible time. We chose this one for their later times available and they were so generous in making sure it worked with our schedules and made sure we had a fantastic time. Our driver was very nice and very friendly. He made sure we got on the boat and had a good seat. We didn’t even notice the boat had docked again when we’d returned since we were facing out into the Nile and our driver came and found us and brought us home. Overall really good time!

Activity was great especially our tour guide Sayed Fouad who was very knowledgable about Egyptian history whilst being amusing and kind. Lunch aboard a Nile boat was excellent but we skipped the bazaar in the end in favor of a trip to the Lotus Garden perfumery.

Very serene, calming experience on the Nile! Great way to see the beauty of Cairo!

A highly recommended experience, if you are passionate about Egyptian history.
