What people are saying about The Nile

I had an unforgettable two days with Emy, an absolute expert Egyptologist & guide! I can’t say enough about the unforgettable things that I saw & learned in a short time. A private driver picked me up and dropped me off at the Cairo airport, which was very convenient & safe. Day 1 started at the Great Pyramids. Emy was an excellent guide, & also a pro photographer! We continued to the great Sphinx, pyramids at Sakara, Memphis, & lunch at a lovely local place. The sound & light show at the pyramids is definitely worth seeing! On day 2, we saw the citadel/mosque & did some shopping. She knew of trusted places for authentic Egyptian things! Another great lunch at a local restaurant & then on to the Egyptian Museum for the King Tut exhibit, & finally the bizarre; More time at both of these places would have been great. Skip the dinner cruise on the Nile; Terrible food, cheesy show, overrated. Emy is amazing and I can’t Thank her enough for the wonderful hospitality and memories!

I highly recommend this tour, my Guide Ali and drivers Mustafa and Mustafa were brilliant. Ali was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. He was very respectful and friendly and made me feel safe (being a solo female traveller) it was very well organized and the best way to see the sights! Made my trip very memorable and special. The only downside was getting ripped off at Sultans Palace (perfume shop) so please be careful if you go there and don't be pressured into buying anything... I got charged £160 and I almost cried, that was the only negative of the whole trip. But it can't drop a star because my guide was so good! (he wasn't there at the store) so it wasn't his fault. I still highly recommend this tour, very attentive and amazing knowledge. I learned so much and saw so many amazing things and great photos too :)

I cannot recommend this experience enough. Ahmet was our guide and by the end he felt like part of our family. Everything was so well organized and on time. Omar experienced so many amazing things in Egypt and saw more than we could have asked for. Ahmet was so knowledgeable and proud of Egyptian history. He made our experience infinitely better with his humor and thoughtfulness. We never felt rushed or pressured to go see any attractions. This has been the trip of a lifetime for us and I cannot recommend this tour enough. The pictures are incredible and Ahmet will take the most amazing pictures for you. If you’re looking for a tour please consider this option - you won’t regret your choice!

A fantasy journey that I loved very much, Mrs. Iman is wonderful, accurate at the time, helpful, thank you, Mr. Mustafa was with me throughout the trip, he made me feel safe, thank him, Mr. Karim was in contact and always asked
