Great service and super local guides. Really a great set of drivers and guildes

Local pick up at the hotel was perfect and on time.
Interesting little local tour of local Nile bridge and hotel palace, then on to the ship.

Great views on Nile as you cruise along and dinner was good too.
Had a nice grilled fish and salad bar....Piano music and follow by the belly dancing show.
Was a great way to arrive into Cairo and tap into local feeling and get into the local
Nile views and culture a bit.

Would do this again and was a fun and pleasant evening event.

Side Note- limited wine card - Wine is a bit but its optional with dinner.

Our guide, Akram, was awesome! He even gave us a tour of downtown Cairo on the way to the cruise pier. Just being on the Nile was breathtaking. The live band, belly dancer and skirt twirler made it unforgettable!

Lonely Planet says this is the best river cruise, and I have no reason to doubt that based on my experience. Very elegant, good food, great band and amazing dancers. Don't miss this one!

We loved cruising the Nile on the Maxim. Our host Mohamed secured for the 2 of us one of the best tables on the floor, right next to the stage, and helped us make our food and drink selections. We enjoyed the dinner, 2-hour live entertainment program was great (live "Western" and Arabic bands, a whirling dancer, a belly dancer), and the night Cairo looked amazing from the boat. Hotel pick up and drop off were included in the package. Worth every penny! A great night out in Cairo.

A fun change of pace. So scenic to be on the Nile at sunset. Also has the traditional Egyptian entertainment mixed in with some more modern dinner music. All around good time

Excellent short trip. The whirling dervish was unbelievable, worth going just for that alone. Food was good- we did not pay for the a la carte and it was excellent

Food was very nice, entertainment was great and the boat was very nice. However drinks were very expensive and we were less than impressed by the driver asking us for a tip when he drove us there and back, hardly spoke to us as he was speaking to his mate the whole time and he had his dinner and enjoyed the entertainment on the cruise just the same as we did!

The dinner cruise overall was wonderful! The cruise ship was beautiful, inside-out, and it has a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent and we had so much fun with the entertainment, especially whirling dervishes. We were picked up from hotel, also showed to our table and introduced to our waiter for the night by our guide. I would do it again and recommend for others to check it out if time permits.

Excellent night,the whirling dervish and belly dancer were both very good and verey entertaining. The food and service were both excellent, dress code seemed to be smart casual although for some people casual seemed a loose definition.

We thoroughly enjoyed this Cruise! The food was very good, the entertainment was a lot of fun - the dancers are very talented. We did wish though that it had been about an hour longer. That would have allowed a more leisurely dinner and more pre-entertainment time for strolling the deck and dancing. We really had hoped to have the romance of some time on the dance floor with our hard learned ballroom dances and salsa. We need to make a special note that Viator's service was wonderful on all 5 tours we took in Egypt - we did not expect the, don't know what you call them, arrangements agents - forgot one's name (do check for that and tell him how appreciated we was) but the other was Fadi - who came to us in person to check out exactly what arrangements we wanted as we had flexibility with private tours, were there to introduce us to our guides and drivers, and in the case of the cruise Fadi took us to and from the boat himself with his driver! Many thanks, folks!!!
