This was the most wonderful and romantic cruise we have ever done. First of all it is a private tour, so you have the lovely cafelluca boat all for yourself / your group. Then, we had a delicious traditional Egyptian dinner on board, including 3 variety of meat (kofta, beef and chicken), tahini, rice, salad and 3 types of dessert. The cruise last 2 hours, sailing along the river Nile. The crew allowed us to choose the music and even asked us if we were happy with the speed of the boat. The ambiance is extremely relaxing, romantic and cozy. Engy took good care of us, from the pick up at the hotel to the drop off, being very kind and polite. We definitely recommend this trip as it is a truly unforgettable experience.

Its a wonderful journey during the trip. You’ll see the bustling city from Cairo to a wonderful peaceful beach at Ain Sokhna where you will witness clear water in Red Sea with the desert mountain merge together. We had wonderful trip with our guide namely Mr. Ramy Afifi. He took care of us really good and make sure we are comfortable during our trip. The jetski ride was amazing! You can see the blue water, blue sky, and brown desert- everything nice! Also you can swim at the beach and the swimming pool. After that you will get a delicious lunch after the adventure activity.

The trip was super fantastic. I don't think we've had such a good trip since we've been in Egypt as we did with Tarek in the chaotic traffic, he was calm, patient and amazingly relaxed. Arriving at the beach, Fady took care of everything and was very caring. On the way back, my husband forgot his sunglasses in the car. Tarek (the driver) was so nice and brought us the sunglasses to our hotel, that was awesome.

The tour guide could speak German pretty well and told us the history of Egypt. Fulfilled all our wishes and made great videos. Was a nice trip

Esraa was amazing and so knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and would highly recommend this excursion.
