Excellent way to experience history!
, Jun 2022
What a wonderful experience I had on this tour! From the staff on the boat to the tour guide, I felt so accounted for. I have a deep interest in ancient history and I was able to ask questions to my tour guide Mohamed Shakour and receive a response that was deeper than surface level knowledge. He really knows each site in depth and will lead you to specific hieroglyphs at times when there will be less crowd. He does an excellent job to maximize your time, comfort, and experience in a way that connects the history from temple to temple. If you are lucky enough to get this guide, ask him questions and enjoy! He truly has a deep and rich history of the country. Brilliant! Be aware that this tour has moments of demanding itineraries so do communicate with your guides about what you want to do or if you need a rest. The rooms were quite decorative and decently spacious for a cruise. We also got a massage on board and it was wonderful. Also be aware that you have to pay to get into all the sites and should tip for some transportation. The price of the cruise is essentially room and food. All other expenses are on you. Overall, lovely to watch the Nile as you cruise by! Worth it to see how the ancient civilization was utilizing their land.

Nile Cruise
, Jun 2022
Nice experice to navigate the Nile and have contact with the Egiptian Culture. Food was good and room was perfect, the staff is kind. If you are thinking the you will rest during the cruise this is not for you, we sarted everyday very early to follow the schedule. Our Guide Wael is super nice and he gave us free time for our photos. We had a problem contacting the agengy to know when and where was the pickup point. Viator solved late but solved for us. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Este tour fue un tour en español, la experiencia es increíble, las actividaddes son buenas, Egipto es un paraiso que nadie se puede perder, la comida rica y el dormitorio excelente, nuestro guia Wael manejaba el español casi que perfecto, fue amable e hizo nuestra visita amena, siempre dispuesto a colaborar para hacer nuestra instancia lo mejor posible.
Amazing experience! Great ship! And the best guide!
, Jun 2022
I was worried after reading some of the reviews as it seems the ship you get can be random but we needn't have worried. We were on the Blue Shadow which was nice, clean and modern and the room was much better than expected. Our tour guide Mohamed Wafa was the best! He was very knowledgeable on the excursions and went out of his way to look after the group even when it came to small requests. The group loved him! We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it.
Great Hot Air Baloon ride, but a disaster of a cruise!
, Jun 2022
The hot air baloon experience was exceptional! It was outstanding and was the highlight of this cruise package. The cabin was barely acceptable but nothing beyond that. The upper deck service staff was very good. Our guide, Mohammed Wafa (sp?) was knowledgeable and good. Now, for the downside - significant opportunities for improvement: (1) Upon boarding, we were refused 2 cabin access cards, thus making it a constant struggle to figure out who has the key and where they are. Painful. I have never experienced this on any of the several cruises that we have been on. (2) I purchased a WiFi package but after the first day or so, it stopped working. When I inquired with the staff person who sold the package, he confirmed that it was temporarily out and that they were trying to fix it. But it never did work after that. When I complained and requested a refund (ignoring the inconvenience), the response was totally unacceptable! He said that he saw me using it on the first day. I told him that this is literally cheating. At final billing, when I asked about the refund, he said it was too late since he already had written up the charges. This is beyond cheating!! (3) The cabin was barely acceptable. The bathroom was such that water would spray on to the floor since there was no screen when having a shower. Worse than that, on the 3rd day of the cruise, my wife could not open the bathroom door from inside. She was lucky that I happened to be in the cabin at that time, that I could open the door from outside when she started banging on the door. We left the bathroom door open after that for the rest of the journey. We didn't bother to report it since the attitude presented by the ship's staff regarding the non-working WiFi suggested their callous customer service attitude. (4) There were no coffee stations where one can help themselves to a cup of coffee. This was unbelievable! I can go on with several other complaints/opportunities by simple comparison with any of the other cruises, at least the ones that we have been on - this was the worst experience ever. I would not recommend this cruise to any of the readers. Viator need to take note and make a concerted effort to correct these problems and improve the quality of the experience.

Great way to see Ancient Egypt Temples
, May 2022
Overall the cruise was good and I recommend it. I went with my family and we all enjoyed it. A cruise in the Nile is a great way to see the magnificent temples. The good thing about this offer is that you pay the temples that you go, so if one does not interest you, you can skip it. As you read in other reviews, it's not a luxury boat but it’s decent enough. The rooms are spacious and have a nice view of the nile slopes. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are old and dark. Food was all right, different main dishes every day. For vegetarians, options are a bit limited. Breakfast was my favourite, except for the goody bag to eat on the bus to Abu Simbel, that was quite terrible. Our guide was Mostafa (spanish speaking). We was accesible and friendly. However, considering the immense history of Egypt, I was hoping to get more information and stories about the ancient Egyptians, their customs, politics, etc. Speaking to members of other groups, I got the impression the information they received from their guide was more elaborate and clear. As to the tips, on top of the $20 for the crew staff, our guide asked us to tip every driver that took us to a temple. He said they are not payed very well and they expect to get tips. Our group didn't appreciate this, as nowhere in the tour’s specifications said we were supposed to pay extra tips. Moreover, the company should make sure the drivers are well compensated for their work instead of putting the responsibility on the passengers.

Amazing cruise and Tours
, May 2022
Booked this tour last minute. Was bery surprised how great it was . It was above my expectations. Food was delicious and so much of it. Staff so friendly. Great views from your room of the Nile. Tours were so well organised. Had a very informative and friendly tour guide Michael. Went above and beyond to help us out with other things like organising our sim card and grocery stop. Would highly recommend this tour and company. We are so glad we did the cruise, its been a highlight

Excelent Cruise and Guide!
, May 2022
Sabry is the best Guide we could have. He helped us with everything and he knows a lot about the history of Egypt. The Cruise is 5 stars.
Overall good but lousy cruise ship
, May 2022
The hot air balloon ride was the most memorable. It was incredible. Be prepared for a very early start on the morning so you get to see the sunrise. Our Guide Muhamed Wafa was very genuine and knowledgeable and went out of the way to help us and explained everything patiently. The one big negative was the cruise boat, Royal Viking. It was old and dated, the service was bad and the food was terrible. That is the reason for giving this a three star review.

Unforgettable cruise of a lifetime
, May 2022
A life changing experience with excellent planning and execution right from our pickup in Aswan airport till we left the boat in Luxor. The tour group even answered questions while i was submitting my Egypt e-visa application. Our boat was top notch with great facilities, amenities, and modern finishes on the sun deck and rooms. The experience of drifting through the Nile and visiting ancient Egyptian sites with our qualified guide - Mohammed is better experienced than explained in words. The food on the boat was either buffet or a La crate depending on the day. Many options available even for vegetarians. I learned so much about Egyptian history from visits to Philae Temple, Anu Simbel, Edfu, and Luxor. Each stop was as exciting as the next. Just avoid eye contact with the persuasive vendors haggling near each stop . Also made some amazing friends on the boat with this tour! Definitely wish I could’ve stayed longer on the boat. Do not hesitate and book this immediately!

An amazing trip
, May 2022
We had an amazing time on this trip. Communication with the tour company was great, the pick up at the airport was smooth and the boat is nice. It’s a little bit dated, but still comfortable and most important very clean. The staff on the boat is always nice and polite and more then welcome to accommodate ours needs. The highlight was for sure our guide Ahmed. Very kind and friendly, with lots of knowledge and he even kept checking up on us after the tour ended. I totally recommend it!!
Best experiance in Egypt!
, Apr 2022
The 4-day cruise on the Nile is highly recommendable. You get to see so many different sights which include temples, graces (Vally of the Kings), and a magnificent hot aur ballon ride. The people on the ship are very friendly and are trying their best to make your time on the boat as pleasebt as possible. The food was way better than we had expected and the room does the trick. We would like to give a special mention to our Guide, Ahmet, who was brilliant. He focuses pn the essentials when visiting the soghts and gives tips and tricks on how to nabigate this sometimes tricky country. 5 Stars - would recommend for everyone whos interested abput learning about the anicet Egyptian culture.
Amazing value for money and a fantastic 4 days !
, Apr 2022
Wow, what an amazing 4 days!! Our guide Mohamed Wafa was incredible. He was the sweetest, most knowledgeable guide! Even though he was fasting for Ramadan, he would do anything to help us and answer any question. You can tell how much he loves Egypt and it’s history. We learned so much from him! I was sad to say goodbye at the end of it. Any one who has him as their guide will be so lucky!! Now onto the boat! We stayed on the Lady Mary. It was a little bit dated but incredibly clean and the staff treated us all like royalty! They even left us fun towel oragami in our rooms. The food was delicious and there is something for everyone! There was nothing more magical than laying in bed and watching Egypt pass by our window as we floated down the Nile. The trip is quite full on with two days having wake up calls at 3:30 am, but it is so worth it for everything you get to see! If you want a relaxing holiday with lots of sleep, you might want to book in a hotel Instead- but if you are looking for an adventure and to see all that Egypt has to offer, please book this tour right away!! The hot air balloon was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.
A busy but rewarding few days seeing many of the great sights in Egypt
, Apr 2022
We found the trip covered a lot of sights, with the hot air baloon, Abu Sibmbel and Karnak being the highlights. Food was really good - lots of choice and of good quality. The cabin was comfortable, the bathroom was nice - lots of hot water and the shower worked well. The bed was very comfortable and it was a lovely place to stay. The staff were all working hard and were friendly and attentive. We really didn't need anything during the tour as it was all being seen to behind the scenes. Special shout out to our room cleaner and the kitchen and restaurant staff. Our guide (Islam) was friendly, personable and knowedgable about all the sights. Please note that the cruise requires some very early mornings and down time is restricted to the main cruise from Edfu to Luxor (which is sublime when on deck and watching the fantastic sights of the Nile pass by). We were knackered after the trip - but thankful we had seen so much in the 4 days. One small gripe was that we were staying at a hotel in Luxor on the West Bank and were dropped off at the boat launch on the East Bank with our lugguage. A boat was organised for us to take us across (as well as the hotel sending someone to meet us on the other bank). However, we had to pay for the boat and I was under the impression that transfers to any hotel in Luxor was included. A slightly annoying end to an otherwise lovely experience.

Tips, Tips, Tips
, Apr 2022
Appalling communication throughout from Tour company , particularly for pickup. Changed pick up time and mixed messages for pickup location. No itinerary provided so when you are waiting for the (late)pick up you think you have missed the boat. Continue to try and sell additional services instead. Tour guide- pressured the group for tips at every opportunity. It was relentless and seriously affected the enjoyment of the trip. Generally either couldn’t read his audience or just didn’t care. Talks at you forever then gives you 10 minutes to view a tomb in Valley of The Kings and then takes you to a shop for 1/2 hr. Child badly cut foot on boat pool tile. Totally inadequate first aid kit. Another child did the same a few hours later.

Great experience
, Apr 2022
We had a great time on the cruise. Everything from the pickup to dropoff at the end went smoothly. Our tour guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable and friendly. He even helped arrange our train after the cruise was completed and was helpful the whole trip. The food on the cruise was great and all the staff were friendly. The hot air balloon ride was definitely the highlight. WiFi was not included and is an extra cost so would recommend having your own sim in Egypt.

Stunning...absolutely stunning
, Apr 2022
This cruise was incredible and the temples and sights you will see are incredibly breathtaking. What made this cruise amazing however, was our guide Hossam Rashwan. Incredibly passionate ,high energy and very entertaining every single day - which was impressive given it was Ramadan and I’d hazard a guess he was running on 3 hours sleep daily. Very knowledgable tour guide and great with children. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the real ancient Egypt - big temples (some still with coloured art!) and monuments. I would warn however, the early morning starts each day. Expect to wake up between 4am-6am to kick off the days, but you have plenty of time to chill whilst on the cruise. Oh and also, Abu Simbel is an 8 hour round trip 😂. Being a good neck pillow for that. 10/10 would recommend and do it all again!
Our tour guide Ahmed was...
, Apr 2022
Our tour guide Ahmed was really good. All tours were well managed and very enjoyable. On the boat it would have been good to find out when we checked in that you could pay an amount to then have all drinks for free
Great experience on the Nile
, Apr 2022
We had an amazing experience on this Nile cruise during our stay in Egypt! Way easier than organizing all the visits on our own, plus you can relax on the boat in between visits. Food was good and diversified. Though we found the organisation a little hectic at first everything turned out well in the end. Special mention to our guide Hany Soliman who had great knowledge of Egypt history and always had so many interesting stories about all the monuments we visited. He was very attentive to our needs and we felt in good hands all the way untill the airport! Thank you so much Hany!
