I read a lot of reviews about the Nile cruises in Egypt, after I have chosen Sharm Club to book with them as they were prompt reply and very helpful. Upon arrival, we met the rep of Sharm Club at the airport, took us in nice clean car to the boat, The boat was very nice and the staff very friendly. The food on the boat was good and we have full board accommodation. The sightseeing excursions were excellent with a lot of history and information, our guide was very helpful and informative. I had the best vacation of my life there thanks to Sharm Club.
