I booked the cruise for me, my family and some friends and we all have the same comment, WE REALLY LOVE IT! The representative from the Tree of Life company, Mr. Ahmed Maged pick us up in our accommodation on time and had the patient to wait for a little while for us to be ready. We were comfortably seated in an air conditioned van and was assassinated on the cruise ship. He show us our table and allow us to have a few minutes to check the area and the top deck. He was really helpful and offer to took our photo. Thank you Ahmed for the assistance :

Tree of Life is a professional company. We were spoiled by Ahmed Maged and he was fabulous. He contacted us several hours prior to the cruise to confirm the pick up time at our hotel. Unfortunately, we were behind schedule and he accomodated us by meeting us at the cruise location. He ensured that we had the correct location and directions. He was professional, sincere, and ensured we had a good time on the cruise. The food was endless and tasty! The entertainment kept my attention from the belly dancer, singing, and table top dancer. I would recommend Tree of Life and Ahmed Maged to any future tourist. You will have a wonderful time.

Our guide was named Ashraf. Most guides of the city work as freelancers. So, regardless of what tour company you use, ask for Ashraf. He was knowledgeable and friendly. Learned a lot from him.

Great Experience. Tour pick up was at 6pm but boat cruise starts at 7.30pm and lasted approximately 2 hours. Live entertainment on board including belly dancing and singing. It was great fun on board. Very lively and amusing. Dinner was good too. A good buffet selection including fish and chicken. Would definitely do it again.

My host Migo was by far the most entertaining guide I experienced in my trip to Cairo. Although I was late to my appointment He graciously waited for me and my travel companions. On the way to the Nile we had wonderful conversations and he showed himself to me a extraordinary guide and friend.

This is actually our second Nile RiverDinner Cruise , each time is as wonderful as the other. Delicious international buffet with live entertainment of belly dancer, folk dancers, and local band. It was very enjoyable. Our guide, Yasser is a warm, nice and friendly guy. He's the best.

The tour is great. Food is good. Entertainment is great as well. I was chosen to dance the Dervish Dance in the audience participation part and it was a great experience. Don't know how can they do that continuous spinning without getting Dizzy!!!

This was fun. The belly dancing show and Sufi dance was amazing and the food was great too. We literally got into Cairo a couple hours before. Highly recommend doing a dinner cruise down the Nile. It's beautiful! By the end of the cruise we were whooped.

Nice night out, we were picked up by minivan from our hotel in Giza and met our guide Sharieff at the Nile cruise boat dock. He organised our seating, showed us around, gave us the rundown for buffet dinner and approximate times for the Sufi and Belly Dancing shows. Dinner started about an hour after boarding, after the boat was filled with guests and began the cruise. An old-time rock/Elvis singer and piano man kept the entertainment rolling in the background, as more than 100 people queued for dinner handy tip - either get up first to eat, or wait til the rush dies down! Plenty of good food choices available for everyone and desserts were also great, while watching the Cairo city lights outside the windows, reflecting off the River Nile. Note: If you want alcoholic drinks, they are a bit weak and small for the price! We took a walk upstairs to the outdoor deck and enjoyed the view - the neon colour lights of the small cruise and fishing boats along the shore was crazy! We also bought some souveniers at the downstairs store/stand on the boat's main deck, at reasonable USD prices - handy if anyone is stuck for last minute gifts. The belly dancer kept everyone entertained and the Sufi dancers were amazing! How they keep whirling for 5-10mins at a time, while juggling plates and pouring drinks at the same time, is beyond me!! All entertainers provided photo ops, if people wanted to purchase them from the on-board photographer. Overall a really good night out if you are looking to do something touristy, yet a bit different. And we can't speak highly enough of the staff on the boat and our guide, as one of our girls accidently dropped her credit card on the floor during the night and it was found half an hour after we were on our way back to the hotel...They called our guide in Cairo, who called our driver in Giza, who turned around and took us back to the boat, where the manager there handed us the card! And yes they definitely got good tips after all that! Thanks again to all concerned! :

I really enjoyed this! My tour guide Ismail and driver showed up on time. The guide sat with me for awhile before we could board the boat, telling me about Egyptian life and politics and answering my questions. He was personable and polite. The dinner itself was delicious and the show included singing, belly dancing, etc. was a stunning slice of Egyptian culture. It was reasonably priced and a lot of fun. Thanks!

The pick up time suppose to be at 6 pm, however, it was moved 1 hour earlier, luckily i had read the email earlier to know the change. Other than that, the transfer was smooth, and our tour guide was onsite to cater for our request while we enjoy the cruise and the show. The food was good and i would recommend it.
