I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The tour guides provided historical background and information on the sights to stimulate our imagination and awe. Ahmed, our guide in Luxor and Aswan was knowledgeable, answered all our questions and patiently taught us to read hieroglyphics carved in the temples. (more)Hou-Yin Ma
My most memorable part of my vacation was my visit to The Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel and Karnak Temple. Part of the reason I consider my entire trip memorable is because of my tour guides. (more)Mary Lyons
Most memorable? I think the Pyramids at Giza and the paintings in the tomb of Ramses I, or perhaps it was the gold mask of Tutankamun, or was it the statue of Ramses II at Memphis... it was always a jaw-dropping moment at each place we visited.
Waking up as the sun rose over the milky waters of the Nile was pretty incredible. Walking on the sandy banks and washing as the fishermen and farmers arrived for their work was truly magical.
Bring some mosquito repellent and a sheet or sleeping bag liner. The blankets provider are warm but you'd want something between you and them.
Wake up for sunrise.
Be prepared for plans to change slightly as wind and currents are your masters.

The amazing sites of ancient Egyptian civilisation were very well commented and
made to come alive by our very good guides Joseph and Mohamed from the operator...Excellent, we were extremely well looked after by staff. (more)Christa Gonschorrek Noguera
One of the best vacations we've ever had, and will definitely be back, especially to the sites of upper Egypt. My children, aged 13 and 11, and 72 year-old mother all loved it too, so it is very well suited to a wide age range. (more)Penny Shankar
The journeys on the small boats on the Nile meant that families were also able to eek out a living and help to preserve the way of life that has been customary to them for hundreds of years whilst still allowing new technologies to embrace and enhance their lives.
As a couple who have travelled extensively around the world, this is one of our most memorable and enjoyable vacations. (more)Alan Pavey
The side excursions like the donkey ride, horse & buggy, Nubian Museum were the most memorable part. (more)Carolyn Muegge-Vaughan
The Nile cruise and regular stop over points were both unique and spectacular. As someone who has travelled quite widely across the globe, Egypt offers something very different. (more)Paul Hide
