What our clients have to say

It’s now been a week since we left the wonderful Dahabiya Dream and it’s fantastic crew. Alex and I are still talking about our experience, I think it will stay with us for a while.
We really want to express our gratitude to you and all the team that made such a fabulous trip possible. We felt massively privileged to sail the Nile on such a unique boat.
The itinerary was so well thought out, everyday our knowledge and expectations built until the big reveals of Karnak and Luxor temples. Also, we really appreciated arriving at the sights at the least busy times of day to allow us to truly experience the magnificence of the temples.
The pace of life on board was so relaxed, we loved the ‘hands up’ nature of who wanted to partake in certain tours. Such a refreshing way to enjoy a trip rather than having everything regimented.
The food on board was exceptional, Alex couldn’t help himself and had seconds at most meals. The drinks service too was amazing, how lovely to be greeted everytime we arrived home with a delicious drink and a cold towel.
Ahmed, our guide for the week was so entertaining and clearly passionate about his subject. His enthusiasm was infectious, so much so that Alex and I have travelled down from near Manchester to visit both the Egyptian exhibits at the British Museum and the Tutankhamun display at the Saatchi Gallery.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Mahmood and all the team on board. We felt like a little family for a week. We were so well cared for. Everyone was so friendly and kind and we felt so at home. Plus there was a lot of laughter.
We have wanted to visit Egypt for a long time and choosing you and the team exceeded all our expectations and we can not wait to come again!
We have travelled a lot and we can genuinely say that this has been one of the best weeks we have ever had in our lives - we will definitely be booking again!
We have have taken over a thousand photos and will send you some of the Dream. Thank you again.
Cheers,
Elisabeth & Alex
