Nile cruise

We have booked a 2-night Nile cruise departing from Aswan to Edna. We were with tour guide Khaled from the crew Hussen. Hussen will make you dance on the boat. Khaled was very knowledgeable about ... t Egyptian history and made the experience interesting. The boat was comfortable and well-maintained, offering breathtaking views of the Nile. The food was delicious and the staff was very welcoming. I highly recommend this Nile cruise to anyone looking for a unique experience in Egypt. Our visit to the temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu was made even more memorable by our passionate and informed guide Khaled . He brought unique perspectives on the history and significance of the temples, showing us the most important details. We were amazed by the incredible hieroglyphics and sculptures that decorated the walls and learned a lot about ancient Egyptian religious beliefs. Our guide showed us the different sections of the temple, explaining their significance and telling us interesting stories about the gods and pharaohs associated with them. Guide Khaled and the Hussen team will do everything to ensure you have an unforgettable journey. This tour was one of the best experience of our trip in Egypt.Thank you for this incredible memories!

On a Dahabeya Saling boat from Luxor to Assuan

A very nice Boat with a very nice crew. It’s a smal sailing cruise ship with only 10 Cabines. So the trip is very familiar, what we enjoyed. The Boat is very good maintenance and comfortable. It ... t gives you a feeling, when there is wind, how it was in earlier days on the river Nil. The Chef Hamada cooked always fresh authentic easy food we liked very much. And not to forget the good soul Hussien which allways entertaining everybody and keeps his crew together and make the trip unique, without him the boat would be not the same. Or Guid Khaled showed us on the howl trip the nice things from Luxor to Assuan One Thing would be nice: (Some provided Shampoo in the Sower would be nice 😉)
