    I would give it a 10 star if I could. My wife and I took this cruise and it was awesome. Heba from the agency help us with everything we needed, from train tickets from Luxor to Giza and the transportation from the train station to the hotel. I wished I knew this agency before I booked other tours in Cairo. I was not aware that Heba had contacts all over Egypt so if you need other tours just let her know. My guide Ahmed was super duper awesome. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and makes the stay so much easier. Ahmed followed us through the whole cruise which it made it easier to have one guide for the whole 4 days instead of having different ones. The cruise itself consisted of a buffet and the food was good. The rooms though, need improvement. This tour also included the hot air balloon and my group was small (6 people in total), compared to other tours. I would definitely recommend Egypt gift tours for any tour in Egypt. Thank you guys again for this beautiful experience. I am so happy I chose you.

    We recently did the 4 day 3 nights tour including hot air balloon and Abusimbel. This was our first cruise ever and we enjoyed it. Heba from egypt gift tours was a great help in arranging the trip. As soon as we landed in Aswan ,ahmed abbas was waiting for us at the airport. He was our guide for the entire trip and was very informative and gave us detailed glimpse of ancient life in Egypt taking us through the various land marks over the next few days. For us the highlights were Abusimbel (even though it takes 8-9 hours to travel to and from Aswan), valley of Kings and hot air balloon. our cruise ship-Semiramis 2 was good too.
    This is a great way of seeing all of southern egypt in 4 days. Last day we finished around 4 pm and were dropped off at our hotel. They even arranged airport transportation for the next day.
