Our tour guide Hady was on time to pick us up from our hotel and we had the pleasure of his company and great sense of humour for the rest of the cruise! His friendly nature and fluent English combined with his extensive knowledge of Ancient Egyptian history served to bring each place we visited alive. The balance between engaging explanations and free time meant we we were able to explore at our own pace. Hady went above and beyond being a tour guide, he was an entertaining companion sharing anecdotes and giving us advice about life in Egypt. He even offered a morning alarm call to our cabin to check we were up and awake in time! At the end of the tour he took us to a restaurant in Luxor to finish the experience with a delicious kofta meal.
The itinerary included an amazing array of visits with transport and tickets arranged as well as additional optional trips such as to Abu Simbel (which I would highly recommend). As a small group of six, Hady was able to make the itinerary suit us, moving some of the Luxor trips around so we would have enough time at each. As all three of us were students, Hady arranged to buy us discounted student tickets and was able to return the money we had saved at the end of the trip.
Our boat was the M/S Mahrousa (Sunrise Resorts & Cruises). The boat was lovely and our cabin was clean and had everything we needed. All meals were included and the food was excellent and served in a buffet style. The staff on the boat were very friendly and helpful, with the restaurant staff helping us practise our Arabic and housekeeping leaving us an entertaining towel sculpture each day!
Overall a great experience and excellent value for money. The January weather meant the cruise was pleasantly warm and sunny whilst not too hot. I would thoroughly recommend the cruise and Hady as a tour guide!”
