Amazing cruise and Tours
Beanie
, 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

Overall good but lousy cruise ship
Venkat_I

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
Aakash_A

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!

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!

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 !
Molly_L

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
Andrew_B
, 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.

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
Nirujan_K

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
mel_Q

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!

Great experience on the Nile
Claudie_D

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!

The cruise liner, Semiramis III was very good and clean, well maintained and organised, coupled with good hospitality and a quality food spread. Would recommend this VfM (Value for Money) trip to others too! The tour guide, Mohamed Shakour was extremely helpful (even during his Ramadan fasting), considerate, organised and knowledgeable. He possibly shared with us some lesser known stories of the temples and other places of sightseeing. Highly recommended!!!

What can I say. One of my best travel experiences ever and I have 2MM airline miles flying to over 24 countries. Ramsey was a great guide/problem solver for our group. Knowing the pricing, the cabin on the boat exceeded my expectations, the food was buffet and wonderful. A mix of middle eastern, African and western, something for everyone. I have already recommended to others, but with the change to sailing from Luxor ro Aswan. This gives you the prevailing wind at your back for a better experience. Also I would have done the train one way and fly the other. But still an amazing trip

Good Family cruise, value for money
SallyAnn_B
, Apr 2022
The tour was better than we had expected. The boat was old but clean and the staff very friendly and we felt very safe. We are a family of 5 and asked for a connecting room and this was given to us, and it was very spacious. No drinks are included but we bought some drinks from the local shop and kept them in our mini bar fridge but the drinks price on board is very reasonable. All the food is included and it was a good variety for our picky eaters. The meal times are late for younger kids, dinner doesn't get served till 8pm which is super late when you are up very early. You need to be prepared for very early starts, Abu Simbel was a 4am wake up and hot air balloon was a 3:50am start, the other morning was a 5:45am start. If you are travelling with teens, make sure you bring student identification, otherwise the sites will charge over 12s as adult prices. If you book this tour, you will get a good overview of the main temples and sites along the nile, the hot air balloon was the highlight and so good that it is included in the price. The tour guide, Ramzy, is very friendly and relaxed, he made us feel safe and secure at all times and was knowledgeable on the history of the sites. He gave a short overview on arrival to the sites and gave us ample free time to discover on our own. It is not a full on history tour but just enough to inform you and then you can research at your own pace. Ramzy also informed us of the amount to tip during the tour and provided all the advice we needed to avoid the hagglers and tourist trap situations. We really enjoyed this as a family holiday.

+ our guide speaks fluent english and is always willing to help + very good food, great variety every meal (note drinks are not included) - very hectic program, activities start on average at 4am. Barely any time to relax on the cruise. - balloon ride was cancelled very last minute and we were only refunded EUR 31.5pp while the price is USD 60pp - very heavy on tips, almost everything is extra (every ride, horse carriage, hotel staff, "moving luggages" etc). Every time you are told exactly how much to give which makes it mandatory... therefore it is far from accurate to state in the description that everything is "included" - ship is clean but very old especially bathroom. As other reviews suggest, it is 3 star European standard and not 5 star.

Our guide Mohamed
Sherri_S
, Mar 2022
Being first time Americans traveling to Egypt we were a little apprehensive on what to expect. Well all that went out the door when we met our tour guide Mohamed Mamdouh! This new friend of ours was absolutely incredible!!! He went out of his way to make sure everything we wanted to do was achieved. He took us to many places not on the itinerary and treated us like family. So grateful for all the little things he did for us to make us feel special! The cruise itself was also great with very friendly staff. We had a great massage on the boat and the food was good. The sights were stunning to say the least! Once in a lifetime trip! Take this cruise and hopefully you will get Mohamed as your guide!!! He’s the BEST!
