          Luxury 8 day tour of Egypt - excellent guides!
          We did the Luxury 8 day tour in and out of Cairo - with 4 days on the River cruise. This was a great value tour as we went in low season (in early May) so had a great discount. Covered all the big ticket Egypt items with excellent guides and support staff. Our main guide, Medhat, was excellent, making everything extremely smooth and interesting. Highly recommend Medhat as a guide and the tour as a great way to see Egypt.

          Nile Cruise
          Discover Egypt provided an excellent service. I was travelling alone. Rep was waiting for me on arrival, escorted to the Tulip. The week was really well organised, boat was clean and comfortable. food very good and staff polite, friendly and quietly efficient Both Egyptologist tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subject. couldn't fault the holiday. I met a lovely friendly bunch of people. Thank you Discover Egypt. I would definitely recommend this tour.

          Mac the Guide is a star.
          Mac was the best guide that we had all week, so we wanted to write a separate review for our time in Luxor. He went way above and beyond. Showed us all the best bits of Luxor and shared fantastic knowledge. Also really helpful with tips for when we were returning to Cairo for a few nights after our tour. We couldn't praise Mac highly enough.

          Great experience.
          What a great tour. In the time we had it was a bit rushed occasionally, but essential to make sure we got to see all the best stuff! All the guides were brilliant, knowledgeable and made sure you got where you needed to be. It is a holiday we will never forget. Thank you.

          With little time to prepare we left many of the details to the team at Nile cruisers. From the cruise on the Sun goddess ( Luxor^ Aswan ) to the trip to the White Desert Hotel and airport to answer questions everything was truly fantastic This trip was nothing but positive lifelong memories! We cannot wait to book another trip with you.

          The Truly Tours were super knowledgeable - this guys take their job seriously which is displayed by his depth of service.He was able to answer all of our questions about Egypt or Service history and culture - and he didn’t just give you bland “Wikipedia” type answers. instead was able to answer in such a way that not only proved their expertise, but also delivered the information with appropriate humor and charisma.I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to appreciate the Egypt and Egyptian culture to its fullest!Recommended day trips from Egypt ❤

          Fabulous Tours in Egypt
          I had an amazing time on the Truly Tours in Egypt The guides were knowledgeable and provided great insights about the culture and history of the city. The tour included some of the most iconic traditional sights and was a true highlight of my trip to Egypt.

          Awesome cruise superbly organised
          Everything about this Nile Cruise was spot on with MS Tulip and Discover Egypt. From Luxor, Karnak, Philae to Aswan and all in between, This was a memorable sightseeing holiday taking in the extraordinary ancient temples, tombs, Valley of the Kings and villages along the Nile. The two Egyptologist tour guides Ahmad Mozamel and Mohammed were superb - passionate and so knowledgeable. This exceeded all our expectations, Food, rooms, cruise boat, schedule, service were all spot on. Staff couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely one to do again, it was so fantastic. Many thanks to all the kind folks of Egypt that gave us the time of our lives. We will be back

          BUYER BEWARE!
          BUYER BEWARE! This company will lie to you to get your money but won't follow through with their word. Nov 2021, myself and 5 other members of my family were booked to tour. 3 young kids, my husband, and elderly mother. Because of COVID, we were unable to get to Cairo from Germany. Lufthansa refused to let us board. Truly Egypt said they couldn't help us. We posted a bad review on Google and they quickly asked us to remove it and they would let us rebook. So we removed the Google review as promised. When we tried to rebook, they again told us they couldn't help us. Refused to rebook us. TourRadar tried to mediate and get them to reconsider, they still refused. We lost all our money and our once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Egypt. We are devastated! My kids never want to travel again. So sad for their very first out of country trip. 😢

          Amazing time
          A Nile cruise is something everyone should do al least once in his lifetime. The boat is very comfortable and the staff is there for you whenever you need them. The food is very good with a variety of European en Egyptian meals. While relaxing on the boat you can enjoy the landscape that is floating by. The temples are worth visiting. Espacially with a guide whose historical knowledge is impressive and who makes time for all your questions

          Disorganised tour with poor communication and first half of the tour was rushed. Hotels below standard.
          The tour started with a 45 minutes delay picking us from the hotel which ended with shorten day tour of Giza pyramids and Cairo museum. Less than 3.5 hours spent visiting both places. Travelled all the way from Melbourne Australia to visit Egypt. First part of the tour was disappointed. Tour guides performance was average. Overall Truly Egypt tours organisation performance from beginning to the end was poor. Part of the blame has to go to Tourradar for subcontracting to local tour company Truly Egypt tours. More interested in profit than quality!!! As we opted to upgrade to flights and hotels with extra payments, tour company decided to accommodate us on a two star hotel with uncleaned bed sheets and half empty water bottle in Luxor. Second part of the tour was good because of the friendly knowledgeable tour guide. She helped me as I was struggling with food poison after having lunch in a restaurant in Cairo assigned by the tour operator. End of the tour, the tour company booked our flight middle of night in-spite of us upgrading the tour months ahead. Very inconvenient for us as we had to stay in the ship for 7 hours counting stars. Disappointed. Our advice do your research because there are other companies doing similar tours.
