Solid trip and great way to see the temples!
, Apr 2022
Great overall, comfy clean rooms, solid guide, great way to see everything! Would recommend and was as advertised. Knock a star because it is hard to avoid the horse and carriages a d horses were malnourished, and clearly poorly treated one working with an open sore. Also they don't have a lot of fresh fruit, juice was sugar water, nickel and dime you charging for drinking water with meals, and vegetarian protein was hard to find (left with pasta, rice, potatoes, etc).
Cruise of a lifetime: Waking up early, careless guides, fees & tipping not included.
, Apr 2022
Excellente value for money trip. The cruise was amazing, although be wary that waking up for the tours was around 4 AM every day. Guides were definitely a mixed bag - out of the 4, 2 were good. Do your research before going into these places, because guides will not give you more than surface knowledge and will waste your time. On various occasions our guides were late. Entrance fees are not included in the trip, budget around $100 for all of them. Air balloon was beautiful! Tipping is expected for everything and everyone! The cruise personnel certainly become more agreeable if you tip, so plan accordingly.
Mixed bag of a tour
, Apr 2022
The cruise ship was great the tour guides were a mixed bag, the first guide in luxor was always in a rush and pushing to hurry, the second guide was a pretty pleasant guy and the last in Aswan was the best and most informative. Had a horrible experience with the driver that took us to Abu Symbol, this guy was driving 140 kmh in a severe sand storm and had to be told by us passengers to slow down, it was a very dangerous and scary experience for all involved. certainly not professional and left a bad taste in my mouth. If I were to do Egypt again I would probably just book day tours once in country.

This was a great trip. Everything was as advertised and the boat and its facilities were better than expected. Our guide Talaat was very informative throughout the various excursions and took good care of us. I would highly recommend Talaat and this trip.
, Feb 2022
This was by far the best experience of a life time. I actually misssed a big portion of the trip because of the delay from Cairo to Luxor but Khalad went out of his way to get me back to Luxor to experience what I missed on his own Accord! Khalad was the BEST guide with so much information and details at each temple we visited! A must go كانت هذه إلى حد بعيد أفضل تجربة في وقت الحياة. لقد فاتني جزء كبير من الرحلة بسبب التأخير من القاهرة إلى الأقصر ولكن خالد بذل قصارى جهده لإعادتي إلى الأقصر لتجربة ما فاتني من تلقاء نفسه! كان خلد أفضل دليل يحتوي على الكثير من المعلومات والتفاصيل في كل معبد زرناه! يجب أن تذهب
Great cruise on the Nile seeing lots of sights - Great guide and well organised
, Jan 2022
I did the 4 night cruise from Luxor to Aswan and had a great time. Mahmoud was very friendly and excellent guide - very well organised and we knew exactly what the plan was. The boat was great and we managed to visit a lot of sights with little stress. Great experience and would recommend 100%!

Best part of our holiday :) fun, flexible and good food
, Dec 2021
This cruise was amazing. Champillion was a beautiful boat with excellent staff. They were lovely, helpful and fun. The hot balloon addition was one of the top highlights. There are excellent temple tours everyday, boat entertainment and the cabins are great. We wanted to have more time at temples and when we asked this was granted. The food was lovely. Thank you to the head chef Said and your team. There is a reasonable selection of vegetarian food. The tours guides were very helpful and accomodating. Thank you Mahmood, Michael and Mina. The ship were very accomodating with our last minute change of plan. 4 nights are needed there is a lot to pack in. I would definitely recommend this tour. Thank you :)

Our first time cruising the Nile!
, Nov 2021
We really enjoyed visiting all the different sights and learning about the history of Egypt. We particularly enjoyed the Philae temple which we visited on the last day as it was set in a beautiful location and it was very interesting to hear about. The boat was brilliant and all the staff were excellent, they couldn’t do enough for us and were very welcoming. The guides were very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to listen to them explain everything.

The best option 100 % Recommended
, Oct 2021
We traveled October 2021. Totally recommended with Moddy Tours. All tours on time, excellent vehicles and activities. We got what they promise and more. They exceed my expectations. The best thing : The guide, Mahmoud Amin. This guy did his job and more. Always willing to help with all., very clear explanations of sites, always pending of our meals, activities etc, People like him make great companies. In general if I go again I will take tours and everything with Moddy Tours.

, Oct 2021
This was the best experience of my LIFE! Sultan, our egyptologist and tour guide was very attentive and helpful throughout the trip. He's the reason why we have such an amazing time. We learned so much at the temples and ruins, we visited many places and Sultan helped us navigate all the stores. The food on the cruise was great and so were the rooms (very clean!!) All in all i highly recommend Mody Tours - this was the best cruise/experience ever!!!

THE BEST tour guide and Nile experience!
, Oct 2021
I would highly recommend this cruise and tour. Our tour guide Sultan truly made our trip amazing! First, he always made sure we were happy and having the experience we wanted to. He gave great information when we were on our tours visiting the temples and historic sites in a really fun way so we remembered the stories. He also went above and beyond to help us celebrate a friend's birthday and also make sure we could arrange extra things we needed like transportation and a COVID test to get back home. The boat itself was pretty nice and included buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There was always a big selection. Just note that the times are limited so you must be there at a specific time. There was a nice pool on the sundeck and it was never super crowded.

Very nice cruise from Luxor to Aswan
, Sep 2021
My overall experience wad very good. The boat was comfortable (named the Blue Shadow) and the standard for Egypt was pretty good. All the meals were included (buffet) and the quality was beyond my expectation. The drinks were not included and a little bit expensive but it’s fair. When I booked this cruise many pickup point were proposed and since I was in Hurghada I have chosen the only pickup point in Hurghada. Here I was a little bit disappointed as it was not mentionned that the transfer were not included in the price. We paid 45$ each for the transfer, but it was in a decent car with a private driver with good AC which took 4 hours. Once arrived in Luxor we met our guide Michael, he’s the best ! All the questions you have regarding Egypt he have an answer and he’s a very helpful person. It’s a shame that he couldn’t came with us in the cruise for the whole journey as the other guides were not as good as him. Especially the local guide we had in Abu Simbel, sorry for the word but he was useless. Regarding Abu Simbel I would suggest you to skip this temple, it’s a 7 hours journey with a wake up at 3:30 am and you only stay 1 hour. It doesn’t worth 7 hours journey if you already did temples in Egypt. The best experience was the Air Balloon in Luxor, that was memorable and definitely worth to wake up at 3am to see the sunrise from the sky. So thanks Mody Tour for organizing this I had a great experience. If I may, here some feedback from my end: A better communication on the pickup point and the exact timetable would be appreciated, as I wrote to ask the checkout time the last day to book my flight and was informed that will be around 5pm (which is true if you do the whole program). I didn’t want to miss my flight so I booked an evening flight but the checkout from the boat was at 12pm and we couldn’t did the last temple in the afternoon due to health issue; thanks to Michael we succeed to stay a bit longer in our room until 3pm but still if we had the information that the boat will be in Aswan the night before the checkout we would took an earlier flight. I think it would be good to let the customer decide on the last day if they want to do the temples in Aswan/Abu Simbel or just chill the last day and leave earlier.

Unforgettable trip and amazing guide
, Jun 2021
We enjoyed a 4 night cruise to Luxor and Aswan. Our Tour guide Michael guided us during the whole stay and he made our trip unforgettable. Thanks to his company we learned a lot of insights and ancient history, he could really make all stories interesting! The boat and and the crew members was also very nice to us, food was good and the night shows were a lot of fun. Thanks Mody Tours for making our trip so much fun!

Excellent trip
, Feb 2020
I read a lot about the ancient Egypt, I was dreaming about visiting Egypt one day. Finally I did, I spent 7 days in Egypt, 2 days in Cairo and 5 days on a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan, after visiting the great pyramids of Giza and the Egyptian museum I went to Luxor to start the 4 nights Nile cruise, it was the most enjoyable part of my trip to Egypt. Upon arrival to Luxor I checked on board, it was a five stars boat all cabins are Nile view. After lunch we visited the huge temple of Karnak after that we did Luxor temple, second day I waked up early morning to see Luxor from the sky, yes I booked a hot air balloon, it was great to watch the sun rise, I did hundreds of photos from above. After that we visited the valley of the kings and the funeral temple of queen Hatshepsut and the colossal statues of Memnon. We are on board, now lunch time, during lunch the boat started sailing to the south,in the evening our boat crossed through Esna lock, we reached Edfu late at night. Today is the third day on board, after the delicious breakfast we visited Horus Temple in Edfu, then we back on board, the boat sailed to Kom Ombo where we visited the twin temple at Kom Ombo in the evening, After visiting the temple and the crocodile museum we sailed to Aswan. My fourth day in Aswan started early morning by visiting the Temples of Abu Simbel. After lunch we visited the Nubian village, it was really nice to see the real life of Nubian people in Aswan where we saw also crocodiles, we back on board. Today is the last day in Aswan we went to the high dam and we visited the nice temple of Isis on phiala Island. I want to thank Hazem Hassan, the tour guide who was wis us the whole five days and all the crew of the boat.

Great Tour Guide and Boat Staff
, Feb 2020
No rating for just Good hence very good marked and this is only due to Ramzy (Tour Guide) being exceptional, he could not have done anymore, he was helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly as was the staff on the boat who were also amazing and very attentive. The boat (The Liberty), however is in need of a refurb (bit dated). Issues with lots of little things like none of our safes worked originally and there were other problems with the rooms. In fairness, the staff tried to remedy almost immediately. The food on board was very generous and tasty. The tour company (Mody Tours) were just average. Their initial communication was very good, however we booked Upper Deck rooms 4 months in advance but got Lower Deck rooms and when emailed as to why - no response. They also got our booking wrong so we had to pay a supplement ($184) to go from 2 doubles and a triple to what we thought we’d booked originally which was 3 doubles and a single.

Bateau propre et confortable avec un personnel sympathique. La nourriture était généreuse et bonne. Néanmoins notre expérience sur cette excursion c'est value très mauvaise et nous nous recommandons pas l'expérience de visite avec le guide ! - Pas de mesure anti-COVID sur le bateau prise par l'équipage, hors mis des gels hydroalcolique. - L'eau n'est pas comprise dans les repas attendez-vous à débourser votre argent ! - Partage d'un guide avec 2 couples d'Americain. Le guide a du jongler avec les deux langues (Anglais et Francais). Résultats : il était fatigué de commenter en français et en anglais au bout de 10 minutes, amenant à une traduction très rapidement bâclée et incompréhensible. Il a même demandé à une personne d'un des deux couples qui étaient avec nous de faire la traduction en anglais car elle parlait le français et l'anglais. Le guide semblait frustré de s'acquitter de ses obligations ! - MEFIANCE SUR LE GUIDE ! Il est très gentil tant qu'il pouvait vendre des activités supplémentaires et obtenir de l'argent supplémentaire de notre part. Par exemple, il nous faisait croire de nous amener dans des boutiques dites locales pour nous vendre des objets similaires aux vendeurs de rue mais pour beaucoup plus cher. De plus, celui-ci annonçait le prix d'une activité puis le modifiait au moment de payer. Par exemple, lors de l'excursion supplémentaires à Aswan de 25 euros incluant la felouque, le bateau à moteur, les chameaux et la visite du village nubien, de retour au bateau le soir, il nous a annoncé que les chameaux étaient finalement à 120 L.E en plus des 25 euros. - Les visites étaient toujours faite dans la rapidité, nous n'avions pas le temps de contempler les lieux et tout juste le temps de prendre quelques photos. Par exemple, lors de la matinée à la vallée des rois, nous sommes rentrés 2 heures plus tôt au bateau qu'initialement prévu sans aucune raison particulière étant donné que nous avons attendu 2 heures au bateau avant le déjeuner. Nous étions désespérés de voir rentrer les autres groupes 2 heures après nous... Par contre lorsqu'il s'agissait de prendre le temps dans ses boutiques, qu'il connaissait très bien, n'était pas un problème pour lui, contrairement aux visites organisées dans les monuments. - Non respect du programme ! La visiter du marché local d'Aswan compris dans le séjour n'a jamais été faite ! Enfin, lorsque nous avons discuté de donner un pourboire à l'équipage, il nous a ordonné de donner un pourboire dont il a lui même exigé le montant. Dans ce cas, ce n'est pas un pourboire mais des FRAIS FIXES ! Il nous a ordonné au début de donner 40L.E. par personne et par jour de pourboire. Mais quand il était temps de payer à la fin du séjour, il nous a de nouveau haussé le ton et a juré que c'était 50L.E malgré les objections du groupe tout entier. Nous gardons en nous des sentiments d'escroquerie et d'abus de confiance total de la part du guide de l'agence MODY Egypte. Les deux autres couples gardent en eux ces mêmes sentiments. Méfiance également de la plate-forme Viator qui ne respecte pas toujours ces engagements (transfert non compris, une visite non effectuée, guide finalement en supplément).
