We've lived in Egypt for 7 years and absolutely love the place but it's true to say that planning and organisation can leave a lot to be desired. This website - and specifically Petra, Waleed and Sero do a fantastic job of doing exactly what they say they are going to do, at the time they've promised to do it - with maximum efficiency and minimum fuss.
Bet Kana is a brilliant choice for those who prefer not to stay in a cramped and noisy hotel room looking over the Corniche - why do that when you can have a peaceful, spacious and characterful 3 bedroom apartment looking out over date palm and mango trees? The roof top could do with a tidy up and maybe a bit of shade and the beds and pillows are hard but I'd take this option every time.
Sero, our felucca captain was superb, as were his crew, Ayman and Anshawar. They seem to have an innate understanding of what their passengers want - in our case to do as little as possible whilst having a few beers and watching the Nile slip by for a couple of days. They were attentive without being overbearing and let us get on with taking it very easy.
As promised we had our own vehicles with safe, courteous and prompt drivers - for those of you who know Egypt you'll understand how rare it is to have all three at the same time.
I'm sure that we could have stood on the Corniche and argued with felucca captains and cab drivers and maybe saved a few pounds, but for consistency and quality of service this site is hard to beat. We're planning a return trip to Aswan early next year and for sure we'll be back in touch with Petra and Waleed and recommending this site without hesitation. Sorry if I've missed anyone out, you we're all brilliant!
