One of the best vacations we've had in a long time. A Nile River Cruise has been on our bucket list and this did not disappoint. From the moment we were met at Cairo Airport everything was well organised - the Four Seasons Hotel in Cairo was very good, our room was spacious and comfortable and the Riviera Italian restaurant was very good.

Service on ship was good, staff friendly and helpful. However, the lounge area did not have comfortable seating.

The nature of this cruise meant it was hectic with a lot of early morning excursions but everyone worthwhile. Highlights of our trip were Abu Simbel and the Luxor Temple at Night. An extra excursion was to a Sound & Light Show at Karnac Temple which in our opinion was poor and not worth it. Our egyptologist guide Hazem was excellent, his knowledge was comprehensive and he made egyptian history come to life.
