Cairo: Dinner Cruise on the Nile River with Entertainment
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4 hours
Everything was very easy. Our driver and tour guide (Bassant) we’re right on time waiting for us in the lobby of our hotel. We enjoyed the sights on the way to the dinner cruise and got to spend extra time with Bassant waiting for the boat to arrive...traffic was light that day. She stayed on board to help with anything we needed but we had a table to ourselves. Beverages are not included and we only had water and one drink, so we did not get a lot of attention from the waiters like the big drinkers did, but we did not mind that. The food was delicious, not a 5 star hotel meal but all very tasty. The singers, dancers and performers were just fabulous and the other guests dancing made it a lot more fun as well. Bassant took us up to the deck for the view and pictures and got us safely back to our hotel. Being in the Nile was simply wonderful and everyone was very nice and fun! I definitely recommend this tour...a great deal for sure. They take American cash for drinks and tips as well.
We enjoyed this trip so much! I would recommend it to anyone thinking about it... before the trip we were a little worried about it, especially because it takes approx. 5 hours one way... but it was perfect... the drivers were responsible, we felt really safe, also in Cairo, where the traffic is really chaotic :) we made enough stops for buying coffee, toilette, etc. The guide in Cairo was perfect, spoke with such enthusiasm, also giving insider tips about life in Egypt, where to buy souvenirs, where to book a camel ride by the Pyramids... Would really recommend the boat drive on the Nile, worth the money... Looking forward of booking also a trip to Luxor when we come back next time... Shukran !
This trip was absolutely amazing. We were picked up on time at 3.45 from our hotel and taken to the airport for out flight to Cairo. When we arrived we were greeted by out tour Guide Gabri who was so friendly, was very knowledgeable and was just amazing. It was too early for the pyramids so Gabri took us for a local breakfast and so tea. We then went to the pyramids and had a camel ride. Next we went to the Spinx and then the papayas museum followed by lunch. After lunch we went to a perfume shop and then the museum. We paid extra for an early flight so after we never went to the market but went to the airport. What an amazing day. Thank you Gabri you were fantastic.
Had a great trip, an extremely long journey there and back. One of the drivers kept falling asleep at the wheel and we had to keep telling him to wake up! The pyramids and Sphinx were the highlight of our holiday and we even got to go inside the smaller one. You get hassled a lot but our guide Hanna was very nice snd told us the tips and tricks of where to buy and how much to pay. Cairo is such a crazy place, so hectic and fast-paced, but Hanna kept a good eye on everyone and made sure we all knew what we were doing. Lunch was very average, a restaurant near the pyramids (Cleopatra). All in all would definitely recommend.
Our guide Amir way so great! Couldnt have asked for more. Such a cool and down to earth guy. Such an amazing experience and a good way to acquaint with the culture. Our driver was on time. Drove very safe. When we got there, the staff was very courteous and helpful. The food was amazing. So much to choose from and all local food. The singing was cool. The staff was attentive through out the whole thing as was our guide. He chatted with us, gave us some history about the Nile River and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed the view from the top of the boat as well.
