We enjoyed this 5 days 4 nights Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. You can taste the Egyptian culture along the river cruise! Ramzy is a nice guide, he treated us drinks along our journey. Always cheerful and explain history of Egypt on spot of historical sites. An extra favour he helped, finding us an adapter for charging our phones! Really appreciate that! Tickets for the attractions are not included, the price of ticket is cheap, and tipping is required for some transportation. The basic ticket of the Valley of the Kings can visit 3 tombs, you can buy extra tickets for special ones. We know that when we exit, so check it out if you want to know more.
Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.
Great experiece. Entertaining woman guide, very nice drivers, which do not lose their or out time, drived well and fast. I do appreciate the presence of personal security guy, which helped group to feel safe and secure from local bussines men, which were realy rude and annoying. Well organizated, I payed full price for trip and entries, I had to pay only the toilet fees, which noboby can be protected from... anywhere. My kids were treated kindly and friendly. Thanx so much. Can be only recomended. Elizabeth
The driver was very punctual at the hotel reception at 5 a.m. He was a very good driver, knowing every details of the road by head. We felt very safe with him during the whole trip. The local guide, Mohammed, was a fantastic guide, well prepared, with a huge lexical knowledge. We learned a lot from him about the history, hieroglyph writing. We always had a lot of time at all location, stops.
The tour was about 10 hours. We managed to see maybe the most important objectives from Luxor in one day. Initially, we wanted to see Luxor as a day trip from Hurgada but it is much better to come to Luxor for at least 2 days and make this day tour, the Full East-West day tour.
