This experience was great, the tour picked us up from our hotel and bought us to the marina where there was a boat waiting for us to go out on the nile, they provided food and soft drinks and allowed us to play our own music. We were able to bring our own alcohol on board the boat and allowed us to drink, we spent about 2 to 2 and a half hours on the water, where we took pictures lightly partied.

This was the most wonderful and romantic cruise we have ever done. First of all it is a private tour, so you have the lovely cafelluca boat all for yourself / your group. Then, we had a delicious traditional Egyptian dinner on board, including 3 variety of meat (kofta, beef and chicken), tahini, rice, salad and 3 types of dessert. The cruise last 2 hours, sailing along the river Nile. The crew allowed us to choose the music and even asked us if we were happy with the speed of the boat. The ambiance is extremely relaxing, romantic and cozy. Engy took good care of us, from the pick up at the hotel to the drop off, being very kind and polite. We definitely recommend this trip as it is a truly unforgettable experience.

overall good activity. the crew is nice. We stayed around our starting point, we didn't take a walk and see other landscapes. In 2 hours of time, it's a shame. The food is good but small appetizers before the meal would not be too much considering the price.
