Experience of a lifetime
, Jun 2022
Waalid (my guide) and the rest of the team made this an unforgettable experience. From booking until the final moments of the trip, I experienced nothing but professionalism but most of all, fun! The staff on the boat go at lengths to make sure you are well taken care of during your stay. And my guide Waalid was very friendly,informative, and really cares about his guests. I experienced some heat sickness during one of the tours and Waalid was kind enough to get medicine and check up on me to see how I was doing…even when the days tours were over. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this experience again you won’t regret it!
Just fantastic :)

It was an amazing experience! We started out journey from Aswan and ended it in Luxor. We saw and learned more than we expected! Our guide was Mr. Ahmed and we really enjoyed his explanations and organization! Experience of a lifetime! :)
Amazing Nile Cruise Adventure
, Jun 2022
Our overall experience was amazing, with many great memories. Besides touring all the temples and sites, there was some free time to hang out on the boat and relax (this trip is pretty “full” but there is a lot to see. The hot air ballooning trip was a highlight, but we also really enjoyed Philae and all the Luxor sites. Our guide, Walid, was outstanding. A great combination of knowledge, organization, but also flexibility and willingness to let us just wander around. Highly recommended
Good and recommended
, Jun 2022
The service is very good. Our tour guide is kind. The food and enviroment in criuse is very good. Hot Air Balloon is a good experience. When we had some frictions with local stores, our tour company and guide are positive to help us, give us useful information and support. Thanks a lot!

Active but very rewarding cruise!
, Jun 2022
This cruise was lovely. Be ready to have active days and waking up early but the temples you will visit and experience you will have is well worth is. Walid is a WEALTH of information and knows the history of Egypt and it’s past kingdoms. He made sure we had everything we need in terms of snacks, water, medicine or an ATM for emergency cash. He is very kind and eager to answer any questions that you may have. This is a wonderful cruise. The only thing I would suggest is getting to meal times early before everyone because the line gets long.
Amazing boat experience
, May 2022
Waleed has been an excellent tour guide, inside the boat and also during the tours! He really knew about the temples and about any further question que had. I would definitely recommend it! The boat, the food and the service, awesome!
Beautiful trip, lots of sights visited
, May 2022
Beautiful experience in a couple of days. The cruiseship was accommodating, the tour guide knowledgeable and the overal experience smoothly organised. The itinerary was quite intense, as lots of sights are visited in a couple of days with early mornings. Thank you for the unforgettable experience
Picture perfect
, May 2022
We had Ahmed as our tour guide during our cruise and he was nothing less than amazing. He explained everything in detail and always had time for questions. Best part was he offered to take pictures and they ended up being my favorite pictures from the 15 days I was in Egypt. He gave us updates on any time changes and helped us buy the tickets to all the temples we saw! I highly recommend Ahmed as a tour guide for this cruise!! 10/10
Go for it!!!

Great experience!
, May 2022
We had a great time, many thanks to our guide Mohamed Wafa! He took care of us during the whole itinerary. Mohamed was really enthusiastic sharing with us all the stories about ancient Egypt and making our stay as easy as possible. We sailed with the Blue Shadow, a nice and clean boat with a great sun deck. Food was good, and if you want to save some money buy water in a supermarket during/after the day trips. One highlight was the Hot Air Balloon ride, highly recommended. Greetings from Simon & Anna to Mohamed.
Amazing trip
, May 2022
Most of the monuments visited were truly amazing, especially Abu Simbel temple, Luxor temple, valley of the kings. We were in small group of nice people. The tour guide Ismael was great at explaining and always helpful. Waking up as early as 3 or 4 AM two days out of four (for Abu Simbel and hot balloon) was needed but it was worth it.
Sabry, the best guide of Egypt!!!!
, Apr 2022
The cruise was the best experience of Egypt. The main reason was Sabry, our guide who made the experience memorable. He was a very knowledgeable egyptologist, creating great vibes in the group and making us immerse in the pharaonic ancient stories. His language skills (in our case Spanish) were very proficient which made the experience more enjoyable. I would highly recommend doing this cruise, specially with Sabry.

Excellent cruise, nice guide, amazing sights
, Mar 2022
We had an excellent time seeing all the sights along the Nile. Our guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable, helpful and fun. The organisation of the tour was great; the staff were helpful and checked-in with us to make sure everything went smoothly. The boat was nice, the staff on the boat were friendly. Food was good. All in all it was an excellent holiday, seeing the different temples and sights along the river.

, Mar 2022
Overall the trip was very good. Ismail was a fantastic guide, incredibly knowledgeable, flexible, and able to assist on all tour-related matters and even personal logistics. Heba was very helpful with support. Be prepared for a busy schedule with early start days, 4-5am starts most days. The activities are all fun, but if you are looking for a trip where you spend more time sitting on the boat in the sun as you float down the Nile, there is really only one long window (>1-2 hours) for that in this trip. You will also be sharing the boat with many other tours of different nationalities, and you will also be traveling at the same time as many other cruise boats so be prepared to share the boat and tour sites. That said, Ismail does a great job of navigating these things and finding you unique experiences in between. The boat staff are friendly and helpful. The food is decent but we definitely enjoyed the food more when we stopped at local restaurants. Overall a very good experience for the price.

You’ll leave wanting more
, Mar 2022
Very good way to experience Egypt without any headaches, our time with the tour was wonderful and we left actually with some regrets for not going on the longer cruise. Our experience was this good in no small part due to our guide Mostafa Abdo, who speaks very good Portuguese and is very knowledgeable.
The best
, Mar 2022
A great experience, everything was perfect. Heba the coordinator was really nice and responsive . But what made our experience the best was having Mohamed as guide, the best person!
The best Nile Cruise ever.
, Feb 2022
A fantastic cruise with a fantastic group of people from the USA and UK and with Ismael Haroun as our fantastic guide. From day one Ismael made us his family and has been the best and most helpful guide ever. His knowledge of the Egyptian history is incredible. This tour and Ismael is definitely worth doing. Thanks for four very nice days.
Amazing Experience in a cruise in Egypt
, Jan 2022
We had an amazing experience in the cruise. Everything was fantastic, well organized and carefully taken care of every detail. Rooms were great, also food. But the attractions were incredible, specially the Air Balloon trip! Special thanks to Heba from Egypt Gift Tours. And even more special to Mostafa Abdo, our guide. He made the trip unforgettable!
