Amazing experience from the beginning to the end. Amazing boat with good food, great staff, nice sundeck and spacious room with a great view. The experience was greatly enhanced by our amazing guide Ahmed. His english was very good, making it very easy to understand and enjoy the temples, tombs and their stories. He even bought us breakfast when we accidentally woke up late and missed breakfast. We highly recommend him if anyone is looking for a guide.

Very Good! The Egyptian Partner company was Ocean Air Travels Egypt. -clear, timely communication -they use nice cars for transport -drivers nice and timely -cruise/tour program was great -guide...we were lucky to get a personality we liked. I observed many others and have had others but for this duration we were very pleased to get one matching our chemistry. -cruise was great; food, service, cabin -cruise food: menus predominantly western style was very good however need a greater percent of Egyptian/ Middle Eastern selections on a daily basis. Demand is evident on the 'Oriental Dinner Night" where everyone is extremely excited about the menu. If say, 30% of the menu items were Egyptian it would benefit guest experience AND lower food cost for the operator. -I am a consultant for Asia-Pacific hospitality based in Tokyo
