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 was amazing. There is never a problem as there is always a solution. Our guide was really a professor of egyptology and he was passionate and knowledgeable about everything we saw. How could anyone not love the pyramids, the sphinx, the tombs, the art, the culture and more. Our extension to Jordan was also amazing. Petra is a wow. Our dinner with a bedouin family was awesome. The food in Jordan is terrific!
We highly recommend Viking! You won't be disappointed! Herald and his staff should receive all the kudos for the trip!
