Our dream holiday
5 / 5
Stephania , 24 Sep 2022
Nile cruise holiday has always been our dream. Last year we at last book a holiday to Egypt with an excursion to the amazing pyramids and legendary guide Sherif. Our Nile cruise trip was very well organized, the guide in Luxor and Aswan really passionate and the optional hot-air balloon tour became a highlight of our holiday. We recommend to all who visit Egypt to go Nile cruise.
