This was a really cool and worthwhile experience. Belly dancer and tanoura dancer were fun and impressive! Can buy beer/wine/liquor once aboard, moderately priced and similar to that of a restaurant in the US. Food was good and there was plenty.

Ahmed was our guide and he organized everything for us perfectly - air conditioned van that picked us up at our hotel, a great video of my friends and I with the belly dancer, and sharing his vast knowledge about Egyptian culture, landscape, and history. A very smart and personable guy who really made the difference for us!!

I booked the Nile Maxim dinner cruise last-minute with Emo Tours. They were fast about communicating, and they were good about letting me know of any changes or such.

While I know other people said it wasn't worth paying extra for the driver and the guide, I was a female traveling solo. I liked having the security of a guide (and someone who spoke English) and a driver already booked. For me, that extra security was worth the cost of my ticket.

The driver and guide picked me up on time and were very professional. The guide joined me on the boat and got me settled in for dinner. Then she left (and ended up sitting with another guide at a nearby table). She checked on me throughout the cruise to make sure I was okay, which I appreciated.

The cruise itself was actually better than I expected. The food was very good - I had the sea bass - and the entertainment was great. The band sang in several different languages, the sufi dancer did his thing, and the belly dancer did her thing. It was a very enjoyable evening out.

I had two glasses of wine and a big bottle of water. The wine was not good (I would have ordered a different brand if I'd realized), and it was very expensive. Even by US standards.

The boat actually does not travel far on the river. Maybe a half mile one way.

This was most certainly the highlight of the tour. We had Amir as our guide for the night, who picked us up from the hotel with a driver and air conditioned car. We were able to chat with him about life in Egypt and he was able to teach us a bit of Arabic on the ride to the boat which was really appreciated!
The boat was large and comfortable, three decks with buffet food and entertainment. The food was excellent with a tasty selection of Egyptian mains and desserts. Cairo is at its most beautiful at night on the top deck with a hookah in hand and watching the colourfully lit boats pass by.
We cannot recommend this trip and operator enough, especially Amir, who is the perfect model of Egyptian hospitality, always happy to assist and we really enjoyed the company. You most certainly will not be disappointed!
Thank you very much Amir and Emo tours for a wonderful night on the River!

Nevine, our guide, was very friendly & made us feel very comfortable. Answered questions & explained what the different foods served on the cruise were. She was also available during the entire cruise in case we needed anything. At one point the music became very loud in our area so she found us more comfortable seating. She also explained the entertainment for the night, and took photos for us. She is a very good guide. We really enjoyed the belly dancing. My friend was even asked to join the belly dancer and she taught her some moves. We also enjoyed the twirling dancer! If you are able to request her on a tour you will really enjoy it.

I had a great time with my tour guide Ahmed Mahmoud. I scheduled my dinner cruise for my 40th Birthday and forgot to let the touring agency know it was my Birthday. After I informed Ahmed that it was my Birthday, he ensures that the people on the boat know and my evening on the cruise got better. I suggest that everyone ask for Ahmed when they book their cruise or other events when they travel to Egypt.

Our tour guide, Amr, was amazing! He was very courteous and professional. He met us right on time at the lobby. When we got to the boat, he made sure everything was perfect. The food was good and the performers were very talented, especially the belly dancers. Thank you Amr for the wonderful tour!

We were in Cairo for only one full day, so we decided to spend the evening on the river with this cruise and dinner. Our tour guide, Nevine picked us up from our hotel and took us to the boat. The tour takes a little over 2 hours with half of the time spent in eating dinner, and the other half watching the show.

First of all, Nevine was a pleasure to have as our guide. She was a student of languages and history, and my kids (teenagers) found an immediate connection with her. They were discussing the languages and dialects all the way, and we found Nevine very knowledgeable. She was awesome.

The cruise started with the belly dancing performance which was very nice. It was followed by a male performance of swirling performer, which was equally good. The guy was very talented and quite funny. We had a good time.
Food was buffet style. It was decent. Nothing to complain about, specially in the price we paid.

Overall, we had a great time. This should be part of any trip to Cairo, and a great way to occupy and utilize the night time.

Again EMO TOURS outdid themselves by picking us up on time. A pleasant tour guy by the name of Wekalet El balah. These amazing men that take on the responsibility to please tourists like us is a gift like no other. He was so cool and collective. Easy and precise. Took us right into the boat & wow what a boat (Nile Maxim) royalty at it's best. Introduced us to the crew. Made sure we were seated. Stayed on the entire cruise making sure that we were ok and yet been totally discreet. EMO TOURS A million stars to your tour guides.

We had an great experience with Emo Tours. Our guide Nader Hassan was very helpful. We were supposed to do the light and sound show at the Pyramids but our plane landed late so we couldn’t make it. Nader waited for us patiently at the airport and helped us organise a plan B. We went to the dinner cruise and he was constantly looking after us and super kind with the kids. On our way back Nader was showing us the different Cairo sights before leaving us at our hotel. All in all we had a fun night and great service.
