The food was not very good. The conditions of the boat and rooms are deceiving and outdated. Customer service was non-existent. The entertainment was awful (1 night- overweight belly dancer). There was practically no bar service, no ice and 2 types of liquor, 2 types of beer and sour wine.

While looking for a cruise package on internet, found this one. Was not really sure but trusted TripAdvisor and made the booking. Got a message from Heba within a couple of days confirming the package. Just before 2 days from the booking, received a call from the tour operator saying there is a problem with the cruise ship that we were booked on and they offered us the cruise on same dates but from Luxor to Aswan. I was panicked and didn't know what to do. But Heba and her team managed the trip so well for us and we didn't miss any of the things on the itinerary. Highly recommended and good service.

Excellent idea! Unique experience thanks to the help of Heba and her guidance. She made a BIG difference and it would definitely have not been the same without her. The cruise offered amazing accommodations and food. They all made trips our relatively short trip to Egypt perfect. We visited every single temple with our amazing tour guide Ahmed who knew every single detail and genuinely wanted us to learn. Great experience! Thanks Heba and Egypt Gifts travel agency!

We were greeted at the airport in Aswan by our tour guide Ahmed who was available to us for the 4 days. We were escorted to the ship where we began our tour .. the crew were friendly, the food was delicious, and accommodation was comfortable. Ahmed was friendly, very very knowledgeable and very helpful with all requests. The tours we took were wonderful and we learned so much of the history.. definitely would recommend this tour

I was travelling with my parents, both 65, so I was careful while booking. I selected this package after going through the reviews on viator (about the trip and Heba). Heba was constantly in touch and ensured everything was convenient. It is not easy to coordinate to such great detail but Heba was excellent. I also took her help to plan my other excursions in and around Cairo / Giza. She helped us with everything. Coming to the tour -. Everything turned out to be exactly as mentioned in the "what to expect" section. Sometimes we got delayed due to trains running late and traffic. So we had to shift and juggle the sightseeing, but all got covered. Our guide was Mohammed. A smiling and energetic personality. had good knowledge and his English was extremely good. The boat Company (Flash Tours) - this is slightly tricky, I guess the boats are managed by different agency (This package managed by heba is organized by Egypt Gift Tours) The crew looked grumpy, people hardly smiled at us there, except a few young ones at the restaurant. rest .. very very grumpy people, but don;t worry, your interaction with them will be marginal and insignificant. They gave us a room which was at the back end of the ship so was smelling of smoke and was slightly stinky (i read someone else also mentioned in one of the reviews) but the moment I mentioned this to Heba she got it sorted. (In fact I later realized that we were given a different type of room from than what Heba had told me before we checked in. I should have checked and informed her at the beginning) we were also very happy with the boat itself - Serenity - I guess it was named. I could see that we had balconies and spacious rooms. Most of the boats we crossed during our cruise did not have balconies like ours. So that was super fun. all in all, a great experience, Aswan, Abu Simbel, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor, all are fabulous places, Egypt was long in my check list and I am glad we got this trip done. The balloon ride was icing on the cake. many thanks to Heba for helping us with such a nice trip. We will highly recommend this package.

This was a great experience. The communication from the company was excellent throughout. Our guides were always knowledgeable, and it made the experience much better having a private guide or being in small groups, as opposed to those giant tour groups you see. It packs a lot in and it’s some early mornings, but all around fantastic.

We were very excited booking this cruise after reading all the reviews, but left this trip with a huge disappointment. The ship was so outdated and smelly. Even if I can understand that we were just unlucky since we can not choose the boat, ours was one of the worst. Our tour guide Ramsey was not professional so made this cruise experience even worse. He was not knowledgeable about ancient Egypt and very unorganized. Most of time he couldn’t answer our questions, his English was hard to understand. Our group felt lost during the tour. However, hot air balloon was amazing. Transportation arrangement from and to the airport was smooth, and Abu Simbel was incredible. It’s unfortunate that we feel we wasted our time and money on this cruise.
