Reviews for Exciting family holiday in Egypt, for all ages


review 22 Apr 2019

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

Sailing on the River Nile on the feluca (only the sailing though, the night on the feluca was really uncomfortable - too cold and full of mosquitoes). Dinner with the Nubian family.

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

Do not cram too many activities on one day - this is advice to the agent rather... the last day before leaving we supposedly would have done flight from Luxor to Cairo (landing at noon) visit of saquara pyramids (which are quite a distance from the airport hotel), belly dancing and dervish dinner evening in Cairo (ready to leave at 5,30 pm) it's simply not doable on one day (especially when travelling with kids) so we cancelled the saquara pyramids trip, but then we were really disappointed on the dinner on the boat with belly dancing and dervish show, just a tourist trap, the music was so loud it was unbearable, the food mediocre, we just wanted it over! The drive from the airport hotel to the river was a nightmare at peak hour, best to avoid this activity altogether, unless one is already close to the place

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

We felt it benefited local people as of course as Egypt economy is mostly based on tourism, (yet it did not reduce environmental impact or support conservation.)

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

Very enjoyable, interesting and intense
