    Imperial Egypt was a great cruise, everything was taken care off
    The Manager was so friendly and made us feel valued and all of his staff were best of the best who made us feel at home. The service was impeccable, the food so delicious and nothing beats sitting on the top of the cruise ship watching the banks of Nile pass by as you ease your worries away. There are excercise machines

    Great tour guide operator, Hady who was absolutely flexible with our plans
    Amazing narrater who gave detailed explanations of all the ancient civilizations in Egypt using examples
    Very knowledgeable
    Very professional in his job and all the more loves doing what he does
    Narration skills are 10/10 as he guides the travellors through the temples and tombs, Hady draws you into wanting to know more
    And we left knowing we gained a lot of insight
    Very safe, helping and cared for any inconveniences.
    Was a great and amazing trip thanks to our tour guide

    Overall great tour. All transfers went smoothly. Our guide Mostafa was great. Besides knowing and explaining the history of the sites we visited he also new how to maneuver around the crowds so we could get great photos and have a more private tour. The cruise boat it self was very comfortable, food was bountiful.

    Egypt Unlimited tours was great at responding to emails and flexible when we needed to make changes. They also honored the prices they quoted us for a couple tours that had price increases after we booked them.
    Even after the tour had ended they were helpful getting some paperwork for us from the cruise.
    I would not hesitate to book with this company - top notch

    Unforgettable experience for our honeymoon. The perfect low budget cruise option. Yes the boat is old and it took a day for them to fix our hot water in the shower but the food was fabulous, the crew helpful and our guide Mohamed did his best to ensure every detail was taken care of.

    We would have liked more time to understand the temples, tombs, statues, hieroglyphs and background information to help us make sense of the what we were seeing. That part was a bit rushed and too much like a series of statistics rather than painting the picture in more of a storytelling way. But that kind of storytelling is perhaps more for a personal tour so we can’t expect that level of detail when our guide has to look after the whole group.

    We really loved being in a group and meeting people from around the world.

    We didn’t go on every temple excursion and sometimes just enjoyed staying in our cabin and watching the Nile pass by.

    Tips were a total of USD25 per person in total for the 4 days. Which I felt was reasonable. Of course in Egypt every person who lifts up your suitcase, drives you, says hello to you expects a tip, so just ignore all that.

    Thank you Mohamed for taking good care of us.

    This cruise is a great way to see many sites betwwen Aswan and Luxor. The ship was comfortable and the food was good. The program is packed! From day one, we moved from temple to temple - each more impressive than the one before. Cruising on the Nile River is surreal - when you sit on the sundeck and watch the scenes pass by, it is a wonderful experience. Our guide, Talaat, was very informative about each site and great in ensuring we were having a good time. Again, the program is packed and Talaat made sure to keep our itinerary flowing smoothly throughout the cruise.

    One of my best experiences, maybe the best! Rucky is not only “a tour guide” he is THE TOUR GUIDE - explains and shows Egyptian history as if it just happens

    A good tour, Mustafa was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Would have been helpful if we got a printed itinerary for the whole trip indicating times and costs of each temple and places that only took cash. This would have helped us to budget and give tips accordingly and understand how much free time we had at ports.

    I opted for this visit because the three places I needed to visit were Abu Simbal, Edfu and Luxor all of which was needed to be covered in four days. And this trip couldn’t have been more memorable.
    The facilities aboard the cruise was excellent even though I think they could provide toiletries and drinking water without charges particularly considering then cost of the trip.
    But what I liked best about the trip was our guide, Mr Rocky. Right from the word go he was a live wire. There was no moment when he was not involved with the group at every level. His knowledge and that special sense of humour truly kept the group glowing. His preliminary briefings were clear and concise while being worded so sweetly that we never felt it was a parade.
    I would like to reiterate the special contribution that Mr Rocky made when I managed to lose my purse at Abu Simbal. He immediately swung into action and talked to everyone and finally managed to retrieve it from the police. Mr Rocky, I think was more concerned about the loss than me and he was absolutely sure that there cannot be a theft by Egyptian people. He sweated on my behalf and got me through. The travel company needs to be proud to have such a wonderful person on its rolls.
    Apart from that, the group loved the way he briefed us while never ever leaving our the essentials. He also ensured that we had adequate time to enjoy the monuments on our own.
    Lastly, I think that the schedule of the trip was perfect while also providing great food and pleasant hospitality. Thanks

    You cannot visit Egypt without sailing on the Nile. When our Nile cruise (another company) was cancelled on a short notice, this agent helped us late at night setting up a 1-night cruise from Aswan the next day with M/S LA SARAH, including guided tours and taxi from Edfu to Luxor so we could make the flight out from Luxor the same night. Expensive, but we were well taken care of in every possible way and especially the driver (Mido) was extremely helpful, timely, and service minded. Lesson learned is that many of the tours on e.g. GetYourGuide and TripAdvisor are not posted by the cruise lines themselves, but agents buying a room/meals on a cruise boat and offers guided tours to go. That`s why itinerary as so vague, and cancellations can happen on a short notice, because the agent might not find an available boat.

    We took the Abu Simbel tour with Emad and it was very informative. Tour guides can not go inside with you but Emad gave us a ton of information while we were driving to the site. His English was perfect so we knew exactly what we were looking at once we were inside the temple. I had two teen boys with me and they both thought he was very knowledgeable. The ride is long but comfortable.

    Ramzy was a amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and coordinated the trip allowing us to really enjoy the different activities and visits. The went above and beyond to teach us the history and culture of the temples and sites.

    I strongly recommend Ramzy as your guide in the future.

    Great tour with our french guide Ahmed on the boat Zeina, it was the 4 days 3 night (directly from Aswan to Luxor without the train). The staff on the boat was really nice and Ahmed did a lot of things with us appart from the temples ! Clean boat and transport in van, good food on the boat

    Definitely a pleasant and hassle free experience with Rocky Family! Rocky was a really really great tour guide. Rocky had tons of knowledge to share about Egypt’s history and has a creative way of explaining the myths and stories relevant to your tour site. Rocky also provides guidance in tipping and bargaining (when buying souvenirs). You can trust Rocky’s tour and food suggestions most especially around Luxor.

    Rocky also helped in arranging wake up calls all through out which kept us within schedule. He was well known in most sites like Nubian Village and Luxor which will make the trip more enjoyable.

    He will also show you some dance moves when you are cruising along the Nile River. Awesome Trip with Rocky Family!

    He is Dangerous in keeping time so do inform him if you need more time to take pictures.

    This was such a wonderful experience and I am so glad i made it part of my trip to Egypt. The boat was a nice and a very relaxing way to travel down the Nile while visiting a lot of interesting sites along the way. The crew on board was amazing and helpful and kept my room clean and my stomach full! I also booked with a private guide, Karam, who was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and I learned so much about the history and culture from him. He was helpful and quick to solve any problems that came up. He also was so welcoming and stopped with me to get Egyptian coffee, some local fruit, and anything else I needed along the way. Although some of the sites were crowded with other cruise passengers, he was knowledgeable about how best to navigate and get through the crowds and I know that is something that I wouldn't have been able to accomplish on my own. If you're thinking of booking a cruise and guide, don't miss this one!

    Very well organised cruise. The tour agency that organised it, Egypt Knights, was very responsive and maintained very good communication before, during, and after the trip - making the entire trip very enjoyable and stress free.

    I booked a short trip to Luxor for my sister's birthday using their services for the tours, and the experience was nothing short of amazing! We had such a great time seeing all the temples. We were taken to extra spots like the perfumery store and a local market, which were such unique experiences; memories were certainly created. The mini bus was always on time and clean, the drivers were friendly and our tour guide, Bee, was simply fantastic. He was very informative in the knowledge he was giving about each location, he had a great balance in being both professional and friendly, making us feel extremely comfortable with him for several days and he was very accomodating. We did have a little issue with the cruise we were staying on regarding food, and he kindly went the extra mile to make sure we had something to eat, and even towards the end when we became ill he organised an extra car to take us back to our hotel when we had to cut our trip short unfortunately. We would 100% recommend that you request for your tour to be hosted by Bee he was amazing.
