My sister and I have always wanted to visit Egypt since we were in grade school (many, many years ago). I had traveled with Viking before and felt that Viking was the only way to go. You are taken care of from first getting off the last plane and everyday while in their company. The Guides were experts on Egypt and the crew were all gracious and so hospitable. This trip was as if we were taken ...

We previously took a Viking cruise through Portugal and really loved it. We always wanted to cruise the Nile and the itinerary looked great so we booked it with our friends. Don't miss this cruise even if you are not a "cruiser' (We are not cruisers) We loved it! the ship is lovely and well kept. We had a balcony which allowed us to enjoy the beautiful scenery! The staff as on all Viking trips ...

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 ...

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 ...

Like many people, I have wanted to go on a Nike River cruise for many years. Viking is considered to be the best for river cruises, and I can certainly attest to the fact that they run an outstanding operation. From the smallest detail to the overall group experience it was a wonderful trip. Many of the guests were overheard talking about the “trip of a lifetime”. Very experienced tour ...

Loved this cruise, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the boat was spacious and well maintained. The cabins were to a high standard and looked after and cleaned every day, with plenty of bottled water provided. We enjoyed all the trips, which were included in the price of our holiday and the guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The Nile is an interesting river to cruise ...

This was a fascinating and wonderful trip in Egypt and Jordan with Viking River cruises. The entire itinerary was world class. Great hotels, ship, guides, staff and sightseeing. The guide (Ahmed) was one of the best guides we have had in 40+ years of traveling. This really made the trip an unbelievable experience. I had no idea we would get to go inside a pyramid and then later see King Tut ...
