Picked up on time by my guide Migo and driven to the boat where we embarked for our cruise up and down the Nile River. The music and belly dancing was awesome as was the food...had a great time...highly recommend this tour!
Best experience ever
Splendid night view of Cairo along the Nile river. Interesting Belly dances and other folk dances. Good food. Fun and humorous tour guide.
Amazing Tour everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr in Egypt with a great Land Tours the best tourism company around the whole world highly recommended
This was fun. The belly dancing show and Sufi dance was amazing and the food was great too. We literally got into Cairo a couple hours before. Highly recommend doing a dinner cruise down the Nile. It and #39;s beautiful! By the end of the cruise we were whooped.
Nice night out, we were picked up by minivan from our hotel in Giza and met our guide Sharieff at the Nile cruise boat dock. He organised our seating, showed us around, gave us the rundown for buffet dinner and approximate times for the Sufi and Belly Dancing shows.
Dinner started about an hour after boarding, after the boat was filled with guests and began the cruise. An old-time rock/Elvis singer and piano man kept the entertainment rolling in the background, as more than 100 people queued for dinner handy tip - either get up first to eat, or wait til the rush dies down! Plenty of good food choices available for everyone and desserts were also great, while watching the Cairo city lights outside the windows, reflecting off the River Nile. Note: If you want alcoholic drinks, they are a bit weak and small for the price!
We took a walk upstairs to the outdoor deck and enjoyed the view - the neon colour lights of the small cruise and fishing boats along the shore was crazy! We also bought some souveniers at the downstairs store/stand on the boat's main deck, at reasonable USD prices - handy if anyone is stuck for last minute gifts.
The belly dancer kept everyone entertained and the Sufi dancers were amazing! How they keep whirling for 5-10mins at a time, while juggling plates and pouring drinks at the same time, is beyond me!! All entertainers provided photo ops, if people wanted to purchase them from the on-board photographer. Overall a really good night out if you are looking to do something touristy, yet a bit different.
And we can't speak highly enough of the staff on the boat and our guide, as one of our girls accidently dropped her credit card on the floor during the night and it was found half an hour after we were on our way back to the hotel...They called our guide in Cairo, who called our driver in Giza, who turned around and took us back to the boat, where the manager there handed us the card! And yes they definitely got good tips after all that! Thanks again to all concerned! :
I really enjoyed this! My tour guide Ismail and driver showed up on time. The guide sat with me for awhile before we could board the boat, telling me about Egyptian life and politics and answering my questions. He was personable and polite. The dinner itself was delicious and the show included singing, belly dancing, etc. was a stunning slice of Egyptian culture. It was reasonably priced and a lot of fun. Thanks!
