Loved the atmosphere created. Good food with belly dances and local music. The drum beats are unique. The river alone is magical. Specially in the night. The ride lasted for about 2 hours. Only hitch is, it gets way too crowded with not enough space to move around and the souvenir pics are charged a packet. But all in all,... More

The Pharaohs restaurant & Nile cruise was a nice time, albeit very touristy. The buffet style dinner was an opportunity to try many different Egyptian dishes and a Nile River boat ride was something I really wanted to do as well. The food was tasty but I don't recall anything that really stood out. The entire staff on the boat... More

This was a very neat experience. Great food, great scenery, great music, and ok performers. I would have enjoyed this just as much without the performers. That being said, I love soaking in the scenery more than I do shows. I would definitely go back for the food and scenery alone.

I love the ambiance, the food was scrumptiously delicious, great music and Egyptian traditional belly dancing performance.... breathtaking view of the City's Night life from the famous River Nile, I loved it!

The entrance to the boat already beautiful for pictures to be taken. Food is buffet. Adequate but not as grand as i thought. I like the desserts most. There were music and dances by belly dancer and the sufi's dance. Upper deck is a good place to see night neon along the nile. Remember to bring you jacket as it... More

The buffet is good with choices of beef, chicken, and fish. There is a small salad bar with a big old bowl of hummus. The servers are good. There is a dancer and dervish show but I preferred to sit up top and look at the passing riverside. If you buy the dinner at the dock and arrange your own... More

I've been on the Nile Pharaoh twice, both times I was waiting for th etrip to end so I can get off the boat. Service is sub standard, food qulity and variety is less than what I find on other Nile cruises and the place itself (the restaurant on the main deck) seems to need urgent overhaul: Cleaning, refurnishing, etc....

Maybe a little over the top, however, a very special experience that I would say should not be missed during a trip to Cairo. The eastern foods were wonderful, the boats exquisite. I thought the entertainment thoroughly enjoyable, my wife a belly dancer of many years, had her own critique of that part of the show. Standing on deck, watching... More
