The Nile River tour from Luxor to Aswan was a great way to see several different sites. Our guide, Mohammad Albasha, had an amazing amount of information to share and was an enjoyable companion during our tours. There was so much history that he shared between the two locations. His care and concern as we traveled together was noticeable every step of the way. We would highly recommend him.
We must start by saying that the boat itself is NOT luxury. It is an aging vessel with many signs aging -- in hotel terms, barely 2 Star.
However, whatever the vessel lacked was made up for by the professional and attentive staff on board the boat as well as the Viator people. From being picked up at the airport by Osama, the wonderful chef and dining room staff who catered for my wife's gluten free requirement, to the cabin crew, they were all a delight to deal with.
If you are not familiar with Egytian history which we were not, be prepared to be awestruck by the dimensions and magnificence of the structures, built between 3 and 5 thousand years ago. Heaven knows how.
But the best part of the tour was our guide, Mohamed Basha. His knowledge of history and ability to put everything into perspective was remarkable. But most importantly his pleasant personality made it a pleasure to spend time with him. We had some particular challenges when my wife became quite ill, and he made a great effort in re-organising our itinerary, making alternative bookings, and staying close at hand until we departed several days later. We cannot speak highly enough of him and of Viator for his dedication and professionalism.
