I was pleasantly surprised. From Pick up at local hotel to actual Cruise and back to hotel a Really Good Trip. Food was "Fantastic"
Entertainment was incredible, food was great and the outside deck was fabulous for scenery.
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.
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!!!
Fabulous Evening!!!! Food, staff, and entertainment were fantastic!!!! A MUST DO when visiting Caro!!!! :)
Efficient and satisfying are the words best used to describe the experience despite the difficulties of travelling through a busy airport. Thanks to Amr from Viator who again demonstrated his professionalism in handling the many facets of airport life in today's world.
The food was great and the entertainment was fantastic. The Whirling Dirvishers were something else, well worth it.
we had such a good time, the food was outstanding, the waiters where really friendly and attentive. The belly dancing and whirling dervish were a great touch. The actual cruise was fanstastic, we stood on deck and watch Cairo by night, I would do it again...
This cruise was one of the highlights of my trip! The food was amazing, and the entertainment magical. You must do this if you are visiting Cairo!
This was fabulous, not only did Taha collect us from hotel, but at the dock he showed us on to the boat and to our actual table! The cruise was amazing, first class service! The entertainment was brilliant - especially the spin man! For a fantastic evening I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
The dinner cruise overall was magnificent! You have a very informative and firendly tour guide. The cruise ship was beautiful, inside-out, and it has a nice ambience. The food was excellent and we had so much fun with the entertainment, especially wth the belly dancer. Finally, you get a soothing and romantic night view of Cairo along the Nile River with its towering buildings and other ships lighted with dazzling neon lights. I highly recommend this cruise especially for couples!
Very good indeed. Messages were left for us at our hotel for pickup, and we were met and taken to and from the cruise. It's a must do trip.
We were initially reluctanct to book this cruise because we thought it was quite expensive. However we soon found out in Egypt that there are many Nile cruises and this is acutally one of the best, and was one of the best meals we had during our stay. Downside is our intial time got cancelled and we were sent an email to inform us whilst we already in Egypt! Obviously no one checks their emails on holiday. Luckily we had our contact mobile phone and our Egyptian contact informed us by text. Make sure you provide a contact number that will be reachable while you are in Egypt.

Absolutely fabulous. The fact that we had pre-booked our transport made this very comfortable and worry-free.
We enjoyed the Nile River Dinner Cruise. The food was great and the music very relaxing!
The maxim dinner cruise was great!! Our hotel pickup was right on time. The food was very good and the entertainment professional and tasteful. Definitely a nice evening out while in Cairo.
Overall, it was a great experience. The show was excellant and service was great as well. The bus escort from and to the hotel was very professional. Highly recommend it for first time visitors to Cairo.
Excellent ride. Viator fulfilled all our requests. Recommend to all. Only bad thing is that for Egyptians what we already pay for the service is never enough.
The luxury of the boat, the fascinating Nile River and exotic food, and the salad all was delicious! The attendants always ready to assist you and make your trip real comfortable. It's fantastic to meet new people from different countries, it was a unique journey. I enjoyed it and "Ill be back"
Recommend the 730 pm event. The fish dinner to great. I would not recommend paying more to a la carte dinner. Entertainment was OK.
Everything about the cruise was nice. The food, the entertainment, staff, boat and music were all worth the time and money spent.
