What people are saying about The Nile

Superb day, we had chosen a French guide and we came across joujou, a guide who took care of her clients and who knew how to give us free time while being present to give us all the necessary explanations. We are not in a hurry as he said, toy has given us enough time. Woman very invested in these customers and always ready to laugh, she knew how to make the most of our day. Thank you Joujou! Regarding the activity itself is very well organized, no delays. To go to the restaurant (buffet) 3 proposals have been made, either take the car for free, or simply go there by boat (10€ per person) or make a stopover with the boat on a small island where you can see very close to monkeys or even crocodiles… (20€ per person). Only downside of this day the transport is long but is carried out in an air-conditioned mini van in which we are few.

Excellent. I took my 75-year-old mother and she really enjoyed herself. It was a long bus ride, but she was able to enjoy the attractions without getting exhausted.

Very great tour. I highly recommend to visit the Nubian village. Our guide was wonderful.

Very nice female guide. She was very informative and had high skills in egyptologi.

The bus could have been better but otherwise very good.
