With so many Nile dinner cruises to choose from through Viator, we decided on a mid-priced cruise. The time was changed from 6 to 7:30 the day before the cruise. We were picked up promptly by the Viator representative and arrived in plenty of time for the cruise. And then the tour buses arrived. They were seated first and we ended up the last ones seated at a table for 4 with no view of the stage for the entertainment. The room was packed to over capacity, the line for dinner was winding through the room and it was after 9:00. We asked to be taken back to our hotel.
Mady was there to pick us up on time and in good humour. He answered all our questions and was very attentive to our needs throughout the evening. The only thing I would say I wish was different, is that I wish there was a bit more time to just sit upstairs and enjoy the Nile in its own right. The show was pretty amazing and the dinner had lots of options but it all took up the entire two hours. Don't be afraid to ask Mady any questions you have, he was very willing to ensure all our curiousities were rendered.
It was a great cruise! The food was ethnic and our tour guide Mady was excellent! Thank you Mady for a great time and sharing with us information about the Nile and about Egypt. We felt completely safe with our driver. The music provided during the cruise was fun and they seemed to enjoy themselves. The belly dancer was fun as well. The Egyptian dancers were very fun and humorous! We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
