Review for Viking Osiris to Africa

This was my first Viking cruise experience. Many if not most of the passengers were repeat Viking customers and every single one said this was "not up to Viking standards". The ship was quite lovely and comfortable and the senior staff were so gracious and helpful. The room stewards and dining room wait staff however apparently are new and need more experience to come up to the service and ...

We’d been to Egypt several times over the years, and wanted to return. We spotted an advertisement for a Uniworld cruise on the Nile that seemed to include so much, plus a few days in Cairo. It turned out to be a fantastic trip, with everything one could possibly want included: business class air fare, 5 star Cairo hotel, daily fully guided tours, meal time drinks and , of course, an ...

Incredible history along the Nile

This river cruise along the Nile is amazing, with excursions visiting sites over 4000 years old. This is an area with tremendous history. While there may be other companies doing Nile River cruises, Viking is special in that they make a great effort to know every guest, and to accommodate their needs. There is nothing in this review about COVID because the policies are changing ...

Having been to Egypt previously 27 years ago, we always said that we wanted to go back. Such a mystical, magical place! Having been a frequent Viking customer, and loving the smaller boat size, we were excited to see that Viking had a small ship, the Ra, and a perfect itinerary for us. The accommodations were totally up to the Viking standards, and the crew was well trained and smiling as ...

Outstanding opportunity to visit many of the wonderful Temples in Egypt

We chose this cruise so we could visit many wonders of the world such as the Great Pyramids at Giza, The Valley of the Kings, and Temple Abu Simbel. The chance to see all of these ancient places and have a wonderful professional Egyptologist to point and explain many of the finer points provided us a vacation of a lifetime. Secondary to seeing the many wonderful sights was being transported ...

We love Uniworld and wanted to experience Egypt. We were so lucky to have Hazem as our guide. He knows everything and such a fun guy to tour with. Love his stories about history and local culture. We were so excited to visit the pyramids, to learn about the Pharaohs and visit all the temples. It was eye opening to travel down the streets and see the Egyptian culture. We learned about the ...

There were 8 of us on this Ama Waterways river cruise put on by Wings travel… mostly family with some of our party 70+. We actually started the package in Cairo visiting the Museums and Giza Pyramids before we flew to Luxor where the cruise actually embarks. Cairo / Giza is an amazing city but a little dirty and highly polluted which should surprise no one since there are 28 million people ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I love to explore locations we’ve never visited before and the Egyptian Nile was at the top of our list. Viking made our visit to Egypt and the trip down the Nile one of the best vacations we ever had. The ship staff were ALL very friendly and professional. The meals on board were excellent and the guided tours top-notch!! Both tour guides had degrees in Egyptology and made all tours ...

I'd done a lot about early Egyptian history at university and had for a long time wanted to see the ancient monuments for myself. The Viking Ra itinerary was just what I needed to do that, while combining that with a relaxing cruise along the Nile. We first stayed in Cairo for a couple of nights. The hotel was great and we saw eg the Tutankhamun exhibition in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities ...

Till then the holiday in Cairo the hotel and the trips out to ...
