We took a 4 night cruise with Blue Shadow cruise boat from Luxor to Aswan. We were amazed by incredible sceenery seen from the boat and unique historical sites along the route. It is the best way to explore southern Egypt. Our guide Ahmed made sure we had an unforgettable experience. Visits to all sites were well organized by transport from the boat. We didn't wait anywhere in line to enter any site, which was a delight. All meals were included in this trip and food on the boat was very good with good variaty each day. We would highly recommend Nile cruise to anyone visiting Egypt.

It was great and very well organised! Everyone was extremely supportive! We’ve seen a lot of stunning place! Ramzy, our tour guide, was awesome!
