What our clients have to say

Dear Explore Travel and Cruises

We loved the trip and found it fascinating and also having the boat to ourselves, we felt like millionaires.  The boat was fabulous and the 12 staff could not do enough for us, they were friendly and helpful, from our surprise dinner and dancing on the first night to the last night with the surprise cake and more dancing. The boat was comfortable and very relaxing and the food was excellent. Mohamed, Ahmed, Malcolm and I ate our meals together and discussed everything from politics, the state of Egypt and to teaching Ahmed cockney rhyming slang.  We felt safe at all times. Mohamed could not do enough to assist us in everything and guarded the boat each night as he told us that our safety was paramount to him and so we felt safe. The sights we saw were amazing and this trip will live in our memories forever.
