Douro River Cruise - Portugal

Review for Scenic Azure to Africa

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We selected this cruise based upon the recommendation of a friend and travel agent. Initially, we had planned to take a Scenic cruise on the Danube river in 2020. However, the pandemic postponed the trip and we opted to choose a cruise in primarily one country as opposed to four. It was an excellent choice. First of all, our first night stay at the five star hotel in Porto was excellent. All ...

Review for Spirit of the Rhine to Africa

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Where to begin? The places we went to and the flowers and gardens were excellent, including our external speakers. The ship was good, rooms very small, but very badly let down by the staff both in the Saga office pre departure, and then on the ship itself. Total disorganisation from the staff running the cruise program, itinerary changed with no explanation as to why, lots of hanging around ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

For our first foray back into cruising my DH and I chose a Tauck Rhône cruise “Savoring France” beginning with 2 nights in the Intercontinental Paris Opera. We began our Paris visit at a different hotel with 6 nights at The Peninsula so it was a nice touch at the beginning when Tauck still provided a transfer from CDG to that hotel. We were on our own to take an Uber over to the Tauck hotel but ...

Review for Aqua Nera to Africa

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We left out of Nauta Port Two reasons. One after much research the Aqua Nera boat looked amazing and second, I've always wanted to travel down the Amazon. As a well traveled person (4 million miles, 23 countries) this experience was one of our top vacations. It started with the boat and welcoming us on board. Jhulianna and team did an amazing job all week long from the attention to detail ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

After my internet “research” I felt that the Aqua ships were the nicest ones available. The food was amazing. As a carnivore from the Pacific Northwest I had one of my best fish meals ever one afternoon and every other meal was also very good. All of the crew from Crhistian the bartender to George and Alex the guides were attentive and knowledgeable and proficient. The animals cooperated and ...

An amazing river cruise

Review for Viking Ra to Africa

Both my wife and I have been looking for an opportunity for a trip to Egypt for most of our married life - we finally found that with Viking. This was our first trip with Viking - after this experience it will be difficult to find another cruising company to measure up. We spent the the first 11 days of the trip on the "Pharaohs and Pyramids" tour - 3 days in Cairo included a trip to the Cairo ...

Well-Organized trip to Egypt and Jordan with Viking

Review for Viking Ra to Africa

My husband and I took Viking to Egypt and Jordan in early November. We spent 3 nights in Cairo, 7 nights on Viking Ra cruising along the Nile, 1 night back in Cairo, and 4 nights in post extension to Jordan. We booked this trip because so many people have said that now was the right time to see the ancient monuments without the usual crowd. They were partially right. Places like Karnak, Luxor ...

Loved cruising on the Nile on Oberoi Zahra

Review for Oberoi Philae, Luxury Nile Cruiser to Africa

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

My wife and I joined other relatives for a 4-night cruise on the luxury cruise ship Oberoi Zahra from Luxor to Aswan during 23-27 Nov 2021. I enjoyed my river cruise on the Oberoi Zahra from Luxor to Aswan along the Nile river. It was mostly a 5-star experience. The Boat Manager Shamden Tamang does a good job overseeing operations and looking after passengers on the trip. My cabin was roomy ...

Fantastic Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because the Ra is a relatively new ship designed for the Nile River, and we had previous experience on Viking cruises and expected a top-notch cruise. As part of the cruise, we spent 3 nights in Cairo, 7 nights on Viking Ra cruising along the Nile, 1 night back in Cairo, and 4 nights on an extension to Jordan. The ship is extremely nice with very nice suite cabins (we had a ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Having been on many Viking cruises, I had high expectations. I wasn't disappointed! Most of my prior knowledge of Ancient Egypt came from art history survey classes, so it was wonderful having Fouad as our guide. OK, I'm biased, but he has to be one of the best Egyptologists out there: extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his country's history, fun, and a great sense of humor. He was ...
