We went on a trip for 5 days down the Nile. The crew were excellent. The view and sites amazing. Boat was clean and seemingly well maintained. The boat Captain was friendly and the bar service waiter Abdul was fantastic.

It is with regret however that the trip was spoiled (Hence the low rating) by the Boat owner/Manager Karim who charged for excursions at a rate beyond the prices quoted. When questioned about this his attitude completely changed. On returning to the boat on the penultimate day he challenged me on the soft deck shoes I was wearing which were appropriate for guests during the week but seemingly not so today. He demanded they be removed and would not even allow me to hold then on my lap. This culminated in him shouting at me and threatening that my eviction (along with my wife) was imminent at a location where we would in effect be stranded in a remote riverside location. His anger and bullying tactics made the remainder of the trip one of the most unpleasant experiences of my life as we were a captive audience without the capability to make alternative travel and accommodation arrangements. We were
so pleased when the time came to leave.

I would recommend this trip for the
excellent crew, the sights and the journey. I would not however recommend the trip in its entirety unless you are prepared to
be manipulated into paying more. There is an assumption that if you are on the trip you are rich and you will not question money. On those terms you will have a friendly enthusiastic owner. If however you do question or ask for clarification on prices you will quickly be treated like a second class citizen. The Boat Manager/Owner Karim was sullen with a despicable attitude to those who were not prepared to pay his 'extra costs'. If you have to use this boat I suggest you get all prices in writing and explicit detail as to costs, tips and extras so you can make an informed decision about your trip. If you don't have this, you will quickly become aware that prices are bespoke according to what Karim thinks he can get away with so this might take a few minutes for him to consider your request.

On a few minor points water is frequently switched off without warning and therefore you may not be able to flush the toilet or wash your hands. WiFi works about 30% of the time. We pretty much relied on buying our own phone credit.
