What a fun evening. The guide and driver were very friendly and careful with us. We took my friend's twelve-year-old son, and he had a blast. The food was really good, with enough choices to satisfy a child/picky eater. The dancing was spectacular, and the dancers were very friendly. We really enjoyed seeing Cairo at night from the river.

Maxim was AMAZING! A must do in Cairo. The guide, Mr Amr was also equally fantastic. He even went out of his way to get us something we needed from the pharmacy while we were on the boat. He was prompt upon pick up and helpful and waited for us at the gates when we returned. Highly recommended!

A big thank you to Mohamed Elleithy, our tour guide, for the help and assistance he provided me and my family during our stay in Egypt. Mohamed went well beyond his responsibility, and because of that we had one of the best travel experiences ever. Mohamed Elleithy was prompt, kind, knowledgeable, and present with me and my children at all times. The tour to the pyramids and museum was well organized, enjoyable, and very informative. I have traveled to all but two sovereign countries in the world, and as a result, have experienced the service of hundreds of tour guides. I am not exaggerating by stating that Mohamed Elleithy is one of my top 10 guides. Thank you so much Mohamed, and please stay in touch.

What a fun experience! The entertainment was great! The food was okay. I didn't feel the need to have a guide on-board with us though. A simple pick up from the hotel and drop off outside the boarding area would have been sufficient. Overall, great experience!

First experience of Egypt with some traditional cuisines and traditional floorshows. Truly a wonderful experiences that we will always remember having dinner and cruising on the famous Nile River. The tour company looked after us very well especially on our first experience of Egypt and also our visits to the Egyptian Museum and other places. I will highly recommend this Tour Company to my friends and colleagues who are planning future trips to Egypt and I look forward to booking this company again for my future travel back to Egypt to complete my sightseeing of the other historical places in Egypt.
