4 reviews for 3 Nights Cruise Aswan to Luxor including Abu Simbel, Nubian Village&Air Balloon

  1. Nadia Abdo

    From the beginning to the end of my Nile Cruise tour I was impressed how knowledgable,funny,accomodating and friendly all the tour guides and cruise ship employees were.

    Shout out to Heba, our tour booking manager too.

    Heba never missed a beat. In fact she went above and beyond to make sure we were up-to-date about our programme and also regularly followed up to make sure we we were having a good time.

    And so, I got to see all the ancient Egyptian sites I had/hadn’t seen before and much more!

    I highly recommend you look them up if you want to book a Nile Cruise in Egypt.

  2. Joun

    We had a great time traveling on the cruise from Aswan to Luxor. Heba, contacted us immediately after booking to let us know how to be picked at the airport. Our main guide for the trip Hossam was very helpful as well. We didn’t have to worry about anything and they took care of everything. The food on the cruise was good, and the our tour group was small 7-6 people. Highly recommend them.

  3. Pormachea

    Overall, I had a great experience. It was my first time in Egypt and my agent and guide Ahmed made me feel very secure. Ahmed is very knowledgeable and helped me get a charge adapter and book my train ticket back to Cairo. I would suggest the cruise to be updated but the food and service was very good. I would 100% recommend this tour. I had a memorable experience. Thank you so much guys.

  4. Alexandra
