A great cruise up the Nile
, Aug 2022
Fantastic experience from start to finish. In particular our guide Bee was immensely knowledgeable, helpful, and a great sense of humor. He truly took great individual care of each party member. Learning the deep history makes seeing each historic site worth it. Each part of the tour was well planned and seamlessly organized.
Amazing itime
, Aug 2022
We had an amazing 4 days. The food in the cruise was superb. The best part of the trip was the excursions with Bee. He made the excursion fun and enjoyable at the same time we got a lot of knowledge about Egypt. We recommend him to anyone visiting the Nile to take excursions with Bee.
Interesting, enjoyable, Friendly, prolific
, Aug 2022
This tour was wonderful. We saw more than we ever dreamed there was in Ancient Egypt with the beautiful Nile as the backdrop. Our guide, Bee is a great guy and a great guide! His knowledge of Ancient t Egypt is amazing; AND he is able to provide insight to its influences on our modern world. He was patient, kind and good humored. He kept every one of us interested and engaged. I highly recommend this cruise with Bee as your guide. We will do it again.
Habibi to remember

It was a fantastic experience. Michael is not a guide, he is the GUIDE! He has an absolutely deep knowledge of the history of egypt, is empathetic, conveys his knowledge clearly and succinctly and promotes an excellent team spirit. I recommend this tour to everyone! It will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on my memories.
Great way to travel, learn and experience Egypt

Mustafa was an excellent guide and patient with a diverse group. An enlightening trip and a great way to experience Egypy
Breathtaking temples

The places and monuments your visit during this tour are amazing. Learning about Egyptian history from Mostafa was a great experience and the energy of the temples unique! Thank you!
Nile River Cruise
, Jun 2022
This was simply a trip of a lifetime To walk in the cradle of civilization was simply amazing, words can't describe the feelings. As to the tour operator, probably the most organized and complete tour we ever took. From beginning to end all details were on point. Boat exceeded expectations and crew super friendly. Tour guide, Bee was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and goes out of way to please. Only criticism, and it's not truly one, the food was good, not great but service was exceptional. If your looking for a bucket list trip, this is it.
Best of it

Ballon trip, valley of the kings, visit the temples at sunset, enjoy the pool and the starting of the Nile cruise!

Best Way to Experience Egypt !!
, Jun 2022
The airport shuttle pickup was very nice and professional. The guide was amazing, he spoke great English and was a joy to listen to. We received good living conditions and great food during the cruise. The only drawbacks were the drive time to Abu Simble, and the extras you had to pay for, like water and soda. The trip was amazing and if you could pay all $100 USD up front and not have to worry about paying daily as we go to each temple, it would be the greatest small group tour I'd have ever been on !! Great staff, and the whole boat ride was ran very well.
Such a great time!
, Jun 2022
We had an amazing experience at this trip. The staff and crew were very friendly and the hotel was clean. All the visits were really good, we particularly enjoyed Karnak and Edfu. Our tour guide Bee was really good, he knew a lot of things and told it in a very interesting way. He made us very excited about Egypt and Egyptian culture! Some of the drives were long and you have to get up early, but it is so worth it! Definitely recommend!
Excellent trip, no brainer
, Jun 2022
Overall excellent trip and such a bargain! I was a little scepticle because of the price but honestly was fantastic. Saw the most incredible places, with Abu Simbel, Valley of the Kings and the hot air balloon ride being a definite highlight. Boat was better than expected with fantastic staff and facilities. Our guide Bee was great, super knowledgeable, funny and enthusiastic with a never ending knowledge on everything ancient Egyptian. Only thing would be it would have been nice to have more authentic Egyptian food with more vegetarian options and a warning: no drinks are included, not even water which is a necessity so we were surprised that wasn't included in the price.
Egypt and the Nile!
, Jun 2022
This was the best adventure we’ve had in a long time! Our tour guides from Mody Tours always went out of their way to fulfill our wishes, whether it was to arrange for private tours and transportation or accompanying us to do our shopping in Aswan and Luxor. Our guides Mahmoud and Michael even arranged for the Boat Manager and Chef of the cruise to surprise my son on his birthday with birthday cake and some singing in Arabic! The cruise staff were amazing and the accomodations overall are a great value in my opinion. The tours are well curated to cover the best that lower Egypt has to offer! And that balloon ride at sunrise - wow! I would definitely recommend this tour and company to anyone contemplating on visiting Egypt!
Great Trip - Except the horse ride
, Jun 2022
Very fun trip. Our tour guide Bee was amazing and certainly loved Egypt and the heritage here. The sites were great and worth the visit. Getting to Abu Simbel was a 5 hour van ride -both ways- from Aswan and the cruise ship seemed more of a vehicle to get us to all the sites in a short amount of time than other cruise ships meant for luxury… still if you keep in good spirits and recognize this is all part of the charm of Egypt you will be okay. Learning about the archaeology here and Egyptian culture was so fascinating and fun. My wife and I had a blast with it all except the horse carriage ride to the Temple of Horus. Those horses are abused and this part of the tour NEEDS to be phased out if any change is to come. They are not just used as beasts of burden but explicitly abused. Besides this, the remainder of the trip was great and the hot air balloon ride was a great way to end the experience.

A magical experience we’ll never forget!
, Jun 2022
Wow, where do I start. From the beginning to end an awesome experience. I have been to Egypt before, but never saw the place as I did this time. Through the eyes of our tour guide Bishoy (Bee for short) he brought every aspect to life! He told the story, highlighting significant details and made it all make sense. His enthusiasm and passion is infectious and made us all want to change career paths and become Egyptologists! The early starts were well worth it. The selected temples: were awesome. The Dam: spectacular. The valley of the Kings: magical The balloon ride: surreal, tranquil and breath taking. We highly recommend! Thank you
Must do!
, Jun 2022
We had 4 amazing days on this Nile cruise. The crew and guides are extremely friendly and the rooms very clean. Can’t get enough of the beutiful view of the Nile when sailing.
Amazing experience and guide!
, Jun 2022
This was an incredible few days and a real highlight from our travels across Egypt. After reading a few negative reviews of the boats, we were a little concerned about what we might end up on but we were on the wonderful Blue Shadow II which was superb! The only downside being that we weren't told our boat allocation until the day of departure and it would be nice to know these details in advance from the travel company. Our room and the boat in general was clean with great facilities and provided a wonderful base for this tour. The staff on the boat were all friendly, professional and overall just really lovely people. The tour itself was flawlessly planned and executed and I still can't believe the amount we got to see and do in just a few days, this would just not be possible on your own! There are a few early starts but it Is more than worth it for the incredible experiences you get to be part of including Abu Simbel and the hot air balloon ride which are both a must! This tour was made even more special by the wonderful group of people we ended up being with and our amazing tour guide Wael Ali who was such a wonderful human being, guide and Egyptologist. He took such good care of the entire group and went above and beyond to give us the best possible memories from our short time together. His information at the sites is second to none and we never ever felt rushed around. He was always happy to answer any extra questions even in his own free time and even took the time to help us explore the culture of Egypt and meet some amazing locals. Next time we are in Egypt visiting further sites, we will definitely be checking in to see if Wael is free to show us around! For the price you pay for this tour and the amazing amount of history you get to see and be part of, I can't fault it and would recommend this experience to anybody.

Not the best, but decent
, Jun 2022
I would recommend this to a friend but with warning. The atmosphere, food, and staff were great. However, our tour guide told us the drive to Abu Simbel would be 3 hours, but instead it was 5.5 hours each way. He didn’t tell us we’d have to pick up people from other hotels which added to the time and only gave us a box breakfast for a 12 hour day. We thought the whole time we would be back around 1pm like he said, but instead got back at 5pm running on little to no food. Not to mention the “breakfast” was bread and cucumbers which is completely unacceptable. We did not feel well taken care of on the excursions. There were two days with box breakfasts which was very frustrating since we paid for a full meal. Our tour guide was decent. He gave us okay information but it wasn’t that interesting or cultural. Overall, the boat was great but the tour guide and excursions (which is the bulk of the time) could’ve been better.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear lily, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your Nile Cruise Trip and your good comments about the Atmosphere, Food and staff.. re the Abu Simble trip, Unfortunately on that day we received a note from the Authorities that the maximum speed not to exceed 90 km / hour and that is why the trip took long time. And as described on the trip conditions; the trip is group sharing (not a private trip) and we had to pick up our clients from other hotels and boats.. Thank you for your understanding

Dream Vacation Cruise Led By Fantastic Tour Guide
, Jun 2022
My family had a dream vacation filled with adventure, relaxation, education, and excitement. The 4-days Nile Cruise was the highlight of our trip that started in Aswan and ended in Luxor. Our tour guide, Wael Mohamed Ali, was simply fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and accommodating during a jammed-packed tour and shared the history of each site while sharing his culture. Wael spoke fluent English which was very helpful and was patient with us translating for a family member who spoke only Spanish. The visited sites are undesribeable to place in words. The entire cruise and tour was well organized and everyone staff member was extremely friendly from the boat crew, cooks, housekeeping, drivers and of course Wael Mohamed Ali. THe highlight of the trip was definitely the hot air balloon ride, but the entire package was equally memorable. We highly recommend this tour!
