What our clients have to say

I want to inform you of the most amazing week Daren and I have just had.
Everything was faultless and for seasoned travellers it was one of our best holidays.
All of the crew were so lovely and they all tried so hard to help my husband Daren.
The wheelchair didn’t quite work out, as the tyres were very thin and not good for off roading around the temples, but the amazing Egyptologist Ahmed and one of the crew, either Ali or Hassan helped Daren walk around. They were so attentive.
Ahmed just made the learning brilliant, and I fear he had a poor group of 12 who couldn’t retain anything, but we laughed so much.
Mahmood – well he is just a legend. Absolutely hilarious and attentive.
The chef is a real find, and I feared I had come home putting on at least half a stone with the meals.
As I said I could not fault anything, the beauty of sailing up the Nile, with the well balanced tours and a fabulous group of 10 fellow guests.
As someone who was more accompanying my husband than of real interest, I am now a complete convert to all Egyptian history.
I have tried to find you on trip advisor to write a review but cannot, but please do feel free to use this as a testimonial on your own website.
You should be very proud of the boat, crew and trip.
I have already sent the link of your company to friends.
With all our thanks and huge success to you all
