1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


It's is very hard to say. Everything was great.! The sights and excursions, Islamic Cairo, the boat (the MS Salacia) and its staff and the tour guides were all excellent. Our guide on the boat was outstanding and really enhanced our trip. Possibly the best sight was Abu Simbel - a long trip but out of this world.
My rather new dietary restriction (coeliac disease) was no problem for the kitchen staff on the boat and in fact I received special service all the way though.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It will not be a restful holiday. Early starts to get the best of the sights. Be aware that staying in Islamic Cairo will not be a quite experience

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


It appears that lots of locals are employed to service the various parts of the trip. Reducing environmental impacts is not a big thing in Egypt ??

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Our trip was excellent in almost all respects. We had an issue to significant noise in our hotel in the centre of Islamic Cairo. This was really outside of the control of the hotel and they did their best to help.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

Part of the entree fees to all Egyptian historical sites contributes to local conservation. We encourage our clients to visit a local charity called Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi. Masr Al Mahrusa Baladi Organization (NGO) tries to improve the quality of Education in Egypt in government run schools, especially primary schools. The organization also helps to reduce illiteracy as well as bringing up and educating orphans.

Concerning the social and environmental responsibility of the cruise, first of all, all the staff employed on the cruises are local. There is a continuous check from the Egyptian ministry of environment on all cruises in Egypt concerning environmental responsibility and the conservation of the River Nile.

During your visit to the historical sites of Luxor and Aswan, there is a souk (Bazaar) where you can interact directly with local people and buy there wares with the help of our local guides.

Through our environmental responsibility, all historical places visited are to be left as we found them without touching the sites or dropping litter. We always advise guests to conserve the environment and not to smoke at the historical sites. Moreover; our local staff are prevented to smoke during work. All our modern air-conditioned minibuses are provided with bins for rubbish and have all been fitted with environmental filters to reduce carbon emissions. Our transportation manager regularly inspects the vehicles to ensure their cleanliness.

Our sightseeing tours are operated and led by local guides. We use local drivers and all tour arrangements are made by local staff. In addition we use locally owned hotels and restaurants and all their staff are employed locally. During the trip, we give a brief description of Egypt from Pharaonic time until the time of the revolution in 1952. We also give out information about the Arabic language, local religions and appropriate dress (particularly for women).
