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.

Excellent experience! Santiago was a great guide who transmitted his passion for Egypt to us and showed us spectacular places, he was flexible with what we wanted to know, he encouraged us to live new experiences and he always helped us to live a great experience

It was an entertaining trip. I had interesting and personal conversations about life in Cairo with my guide. A great experience - anytime again.
