I booked this at nearly 2am the day of the cruise for 8 people, and everything still went perfectly to plan. Although I had to contact the local provider directly, they were quick to respond to messages and keep me updated about collection and similar, and our guide collected us with a sign with my name on exactly when and where he said he would. We didn't actually know what to expect for this kind of thing, but the 3 course buffet was delicious, and the live music was wonderful - very little that I recognised, and rather loud for dinner entertainment, but a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The sundeck was gorgeous, the views great, and the staff friendly and helpful. The after dinner show was also entertaining, although again - not what we had expected! All in all, an excellent and surprisingly affordable way to spend an evening.
We did the Egyptian food tour and Ali was our guide for the day. It was a very good experience considering we were visiting Egypt for the first time and wanted to try our some of the authentic egyptian food. We started out with some falafel, shawarma, ful, babaganoush which was followed by kushari which was excellent. We did get some dessert and sugarcane juice for a complete experience as well. The whole food tour was great and Ali was a great tour guide who provided us with not just the food tour, but spoke to us about Egypt's history, social, cultural, and political environment as well. Overall it was an excellent first day at Cairo thanks to Ali's friendliness and knowledge which was exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended!
Zizou introduced us to the Cairo he loves. He picked us up at the hotel and took us downtown to the buzzing heart of Cairo. It was a progressive dinner, first up was felafel, then kushari, shawarma, kunafa, basboosa, Egyptian ftir, tea and sugar cane juice. Alongside the food, Zizou talked about the food, customs and how Caireans go about their daily life I recommend the tour, especially when you first arrive in Egypt. It will help you work out where to eat and what to eat
Mohammad has been one of the best guide we ever had. We got late by about 15 minutes from the pick up time and he had put stupendous efforts and was continuously coordinating on phone with the cruise to get us in. He is extremely good in his communication and kept us so entertained. Tamer also has been a wonderful driver. A big thanks to them for giving us a beautiful evening.
Amazing experience! a great end to our week in Egypt. Mohamed Salah was brilliant, he was great at communicating with us, he was also very friendly and helpful. Karim our driver was also very friendly and arrived early to pick us up and also drove us back. A massive thank you to both!.
