(176 reviews)

We are extremely happy to have done this tour. The places that they offered were breathtaking and our guide Khaled was knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian history. He made us feel safe and I recommend him 100%!! This tour is perfect for people who are adventurous and want to see as much as they can for the time that they have. To enjoy this experience you cannot be afraid to let others take the control for a few days and go with the flow because you will not know too much up front. You’re expected to just show up on time and things are handled. The itinerary for the day won’t be told until the night before which I knew from reading reviews so I was mentally prepared to not have every hour of my day planned out in advance. The ship itself is decorated nicely, staff is welcoming and friendly, food is delicious, rooms are air conditioned, clean and with comfortable beds. You have plenty of down time after your excursions to take a nap, get a massage, hit the gym, or enjoy the bar

We appreciated the constant monitoring of customer service to help us in our efforts and in the progress of our excursions. The hotel in Luxor although we only stayed for one night was of exceptional quality, we also appreciated the comfort of the boat. Having been ill, we unfortunately were not able to do all the planned excursions, however, the program being short, you have to be used to being able to get up early (sometimes 4 a.m.) which can be exhausting and not correspond to everything the world, nor at all ages. I would not hesitate to book another cruise again if I plan to return to Egypt in the near future. Thank you to Mohra for being present by message and for our availability to help us despite our illness during the stay

The experience was great, all our guides had the best attitude and knowledge about Egypt. But if there is one thing that was perfect was the attention and planning given to us by Marolla. She was always there for us, always giving us the information of the tour and connecting us with the guides and sending us our tickets. She is really wonderful, I don't know how she does it, but she is 24/7 available and ready to help. Thanks for giving us this wonderful experience.

I would highly recommend this 5 day trip, it covers pretty much everything you need to see in Egypt and is organised so well by Ereen from Nice Tours. All of the tour guides on the way were super friendly and knowledgable and made our Egypt experience one to remember!

The trip was espectacular. The driver, took us as fast and as well as he could. The guides that we had were good , knowledgeable but I need to emphasize the caregiving and the love that Mohamed in Edfu. Thanks
