Reviews for Budget holiday in Egypt


review 22 Mar 2022

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.
