My son and I highly recommend a Nile Cruise. It's the best way to see many of the sights in a relaxing way. Traveling can be a hassle in Egypt and this tour avoided many of those. Plenty of time to relax on the boat, to swim, etc. The boat of the local contact was only about 1/4 occupied and our tour only had 4 people so we got a lot of personal attention. Food was great and we ate too much. September, though hot, is a great time to visit Egypt, i.e. many fewer people. At some places we were the only visitors. The guide was very informative, but not overbearing. We highly recommend this trip. The only thing that was a little different than expected is that it is really only 2 days of actually cruising the Nile. Two of the 4 nights are spent in port (Luxor and Aswan), but it includes tours to sights in both of those places. A 3 day cruise would spend just as much time on the river but you would have to visit key Luxor and Aswan sights on your own. There were several extras that we hadn't expected, e.g. a carriage ride in Edfu and a Felluca ride in Aswan, all covered in the package. We were very satisfied.

i took my family as a last minute family holiday. The cruise was fantastic,food was excellent and our guide was personal and very knowledgable. Staff on the cruise from the captain to the cleaner were always smiling. this has probably been without a doubt the best value, stress free holiday we have ever had.

Just returned to Seattle and the Nile Cruise was my highlight. Mirage is a very nice boat (and there are plenty that are not nice). Can't beat the value, people and service were great!

The crusie itself was amazing. The daily sight seeing involves a lot of walking, though most of the transportantion is air conditioned vehicles, you do travel using horse and carriage. The food and service onboard the ship is amazing, and the evening entertainment is fantastic. The only minus point is that the ship don't provide any complementry drinks. You are also expected to tip at the end of the cruise roughly 25 LE pp each day the same goes with your tour guide. Overall it is a lovely experience for both old and young.
