What a fun experience! The entertainment was great! The food was okay. I didn't feel the need to have a guide on-board with us though. A simple pick up from the hotel and drop off outside the boarding area would have been sufficient. Overall, great experience!
This was a fabulous tour! The entertainment was unbelievable! Especially enjoyed the Whirling Dervish
Everything about this cruise was great! The acts and food are definitely recommended.
Good service, food is your choice but people they do smoke in the cruise that's is the minus point
First experience of Egypt with some traditional cuisines and traditional floorshows. Truly a wonderful experiences that we will always remember having dinner and cruising on the famous Nile River. The tour company looked after us very well especially on our first experience of Egypt and also our visits to the Egyptian Museum and other places. I will highly recommend this Tour Company to my friends and colleagues who are planning future trips to Egypt and I look forward to booking this company again for my future travel back to Egypt to complete my sightseeing of the other historical places in Egypt.
This is a very entertaining evening with a good meal and I recommend it.
Wonderful tour - we covered an unbelievable amount of ground in a short time. Saw all the world class sights, great information from the friendly English speaking guides. A day I will truly remember forever.

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.
This was a wonderful experience. The food was great and the entertainment was amazing.
** Take note that this dinner cruise allows smoking **
Great experience! nice food and very good entertainment. The cruise in the Nile makes you see a different side of the city!
Very good, great value for money and I'd definitely recommend it to families and couples.
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
Great cruise the entertainment was really interesting and the food was excellent.
