          Greatly preserved temple
          The Temple of Hathor is one of the most well-preserved temples in all of Egypt. There are 3 temples to explore in the complex. the birthing temple at the front, the temple of Isis behind the main temple, and the main temple dedicated to Hathor. Many desert people such as Bedouins used this as a place to stay and removing sand and soot was difficult to bring out the vibrant colours of the walls and ceilings.

          Do NOT Book!
          Our money was taken and we never got through to the local contacts. Their numbers did not work. Viator, instead, gave us a pickup location and time, we waited and nothing. Luckily, they gave us a refund without an issue and we were able to rebook another nile cruise in person but this was a huge bump in our vacation plans since we ended up stranded having to find new accommodations and activities and, ultimately, make cuts to our original plans. We didn't get to do everything we wanted and planned for because of this. We won't trust booking through Viator again, but still greatly appreciate their fixing it best they could with the full refund.

          Excellent, relaxing, peaceful ride in Felucca on Nile
          My partner, from Greece and I, Tony, from England. Had a wonderful experience sailing on the River Nile in a Felucca, traditional Egyptian sail boat. Two hours of relaxing bliss, away from Cairo's heavy trafic and honking horns! Transport to-from our accommodation . Our driver and, the captain of the Felucca, looked after us splendidly, assisting us on and off the boat, it would have been nice if hot drinks had been provided, but overall, a great romantic experience. Would recommend for anyone visiting Cairo.
