Heart of the City
Aug 2021
In the evening, throngs of people converge to the river to take pictures, listen to the music, walk along side it, etc. Loud party boats fill in the night with sound and light!

Nile, a Tresure on its own.
Aug 2021 • Family
The Nile is truly an experience, flowing from south to north, this deep wide, life giving source is just breath taking, we had dinner on the Nile as qe watched the 🌇 sunset. A resource that must be treasured always.

Wonderful Egypt Adventure
Jun 2021
We recently returned from a trip to Egypt organized by Travel Discounters and to say that it was wonderful was an understatement! Once we landed in Cairo everything was organized and very professionally done by Blue Sky travel. We saw the highlights of Cairo, the pyramids, the Grand Bazaar, had a 4 day Nile Cruise and a visit to Abu Simbel. Our guide Kareem was phenomenal and exceptionally knowledgeable of Egyptian history. Also had Hamada, another great guide, during our cruise. We were never concerned about safety and felt comfortable the entire trip. I would highly recommend Travel Discounters, Blue Sky and Kareem to anyone wanting an adventure of a lifetime!

Hot in April

Choose your tour Company well, as boats can vary a lot. Ours was clean but not updated, no balcony. Even though Cairo had comfortable temps in the 80's, when you get to Luxor, temps were 110 F, and stayed that way while cruising to Aswan. Overall, a fun cruise, many old sites to visit along the way.
The cruise only takes 2 days so if you book a 3 or 4 night Nile cruise like we did, you may find yourself at the dock in Luxor for 1 night and in Aswan for another.

Booked a felucca.....just us on the boat. Listening to the sounds of Cairo in the distance and imagining life during ancient Egypt times. It was sensational.

Dirty, pointless under a sticky and warm weather
Mar 2021 • Friends
How can it be a touristic attraction??!!
The water is filthy as no one can imagine.
Nothing to really do or see just a silly tour for dumb tourist.
Looking at the buildings near the Nile or in Cairo are destroyed, horrible, dirty....
Safe your money and mostly your time

Excellent Nile River cruise with the Hesham Egypt Tour Company. Driver Ahmed got us there to the cruise safe and sound. He took great pictures of us.

The food was served to you and covered due to COVID-19 precautions.

The entertainment was amazing. The dancers encouraged us to join them and it was tons of fun. We had so much fun! I felt like a little kid again with all the dancing and singing.

My views are from the Kempinski Nile Hotel. This was perfect to end my trip in Cairo. Relax day at the pool, the the sunset in the top of room area. Hotel is fantastic too. 100% recommended. This was our perfect ending day in Cairo.

Nile River with Egyptologist Hassan Elshazly
Mar 2021
The Nile River Cruise from Luxor to Aswan with its incomparable historical treasures along the way is such an absolute “don’t miss”. Be sure to contact Memphis Tours and request Egyptologist Hassan Elshazly as your guide to open up this unbelievable treasure trove for you over the course of 5 days of sheer delight! Hassan's passion and wealth of knowledge brings history alive. And then, there’re his big heart and laugh that complete this experience perfectly!
So much history, so much complete amazement at these sights is easily equaled by the delights of spending five days on the Nile itself – stunning scenery, ultimate relaxation and food, every wish anticipated!
