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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

We recently returned from our Nile River cruise on the Viking Ra, October 1. It was an amazing, eye-opening experience! We traveled with dear friends, booked the cruise almost 2 years ago while on another cruise. Our husbands were thrilled, almost giddy with excitement at the thought of seeing the pyramids. The wives were a bit apprehensive and remained so until we arrived in Egypt. Yes, we did ...

This was our first Viking cruise and it was amazing. We started our adventure with the optional Israel pre-cruise land tour. The tour guide, Jo, was amazing. We visited all the biblical sites and more. The Dead Sea Scroll Museum and the Wailing Wall did not disappoint. We stayed at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem which was elegant but dated. We had a great group of travelers which made a dream ...

Amazing ship and crew - and Egyptian tombs and temples!

Very comfortable well run ship with an excellent crew. All but four of the cabins on the Ra are suites, with a separate living room and bedroom, and a balcony. The décor is clean Scandinavian, similar to the European long ships. Dining is at set hours. There is a good variety of foods, including Viking standards (salmon, steak, burger) and middle eastern foods. The fresh made pita bread and hummus ...

This was a cruise we always wanted to go on and it did not disappoint. The excursions were just marvelous and our outstanding guide, Walid El-Batouty, made it all come alive for us. By the end of our cruise, we could all read the temple friezes! The variety of temples and tombs all helped to make Egypt's ancient history come alive. We were also very appreciative of having our questions ...

After having a great experience with Viking in Russia, my wife and I again chose Viking for our tour of Egypt. We were met at Cairo airport at the arrival gate (before immigration) by Viking's airport representative, Amr, who guided us effortlessly through all required formalities and delivered us to our transport. From Cairo airport we were delivered to the Nile Ritz Carlton hotel ...

Viking River Cruise, Egypt and Egyptologist Amr Shaheen are the perfect combination for a trip of a Life Time! From the time my sister and I landed at the Cairo airport until twelve days later when we left Cairo, Viking was there " twenty-four seven." The Viking Representative met us at the baggage claim area and took our luggage to the motor-coach, escorted us the the beautiful Hotel Sofitel El ...
