Don't bother unless you are in a big group

Picked up early on the day of departure (sent an email to viator the day before departure to confirm transfer time but no response). The only positive was the food. The ship catered for two large groups of German people with their own itineraries that had already been on the boat for some time. We were forgotten about - the only guests joining for the two day cruise. Had to ask for an itinerary for our time which was met with the receptionist tutting at us. We we were rushed through Kom Ombo with a disinterested guide who said we had 5 minutes free time before leaving us meaning we had to find our own way back to the ship with only 30 minutes in total at the temple panicking as we couldn't initially find the boat (it was changing over). We didn't dare leave the boat the next day for Edfu because the first was too stressful. On the last day no transfer arrived. When we arrived for breakfast on departure day we were shouted at and told we should have ordered breakfast to take away. When trying to get a coffee we were again shouted at and told we should have put them in takeaway cups (despite two breakfasts supposed to be included). Absolutely shambolic from start to finish.

Nice room and atmosphere, but bad food

The name of the Nile cruise is Samiramis. The operator refused to disclose the name of the ship before check in, the operator didn't communicate with me any details regarding the 2 tour guides who will guide us in the 2 trips rom the cruise or regarding the transportation after the end of the trip. The ship itself: The room was very good, the staff are nice and friendly, the sun deck was fantastic. The food was very bad and some of it was spoiled, the staff who work in the food area don't follow the standards of cleanness and hygiene.

A wonderful cruise. Such beautiful view. Comfortable room with a breathtaking view of the nile. Top notch food, loved it so so much. The chefs here are so talented. Friendly, efficient staff everywhere. Excellent cleanliness. No wifi though. Visited two temples, kom ombo and edfu. Our tour guide, Mr Waleed, was absolutely wonderful and had answers for all our questions. Funny, informative and very efficient, he made our trip an amazing one. Thanks a lot to Waleed, the cruise company and viator.

Very beautiful and relaxing cruise across the Nile, from Aswan to Luxor. Totally recommended to relax, enjoy some sun, watch the beautiful shores of the Nile and meet nice people. Recommended.

An excellent and cost friendly experience to see some of the world's greatest ruins

This trip included everything that was advertised. Just pay close attention to the fine print, and I'm guessing you will be fine. I found it to be economical, true to its word about attractions, with great food, and super good tour guiding. Our company ensured we had a small group and our guide took us against the grain and off the beaten path at the right times. We saw even more sights than we were promised, and there was flexibility in the itinerary to cater for our preferences. We needed a 2 day tour because we were cramped for time, and they delivered on the schedule. And we saw everything that 3 night tours see. There are the expected add ons in price, like drinks packages and the costs for sight entry, but all that is spelled out in the details, so there were no surprises for us. I'd do it again in an instant. Highly recommended. Shout out to our guide Hamdy, who helped us get to the airport on time and helped us see some extra sites. Lastly, the broker for the travel agency did a good job of communicating with us via Whatsapp and was true to his word. Overall great.

2(two) star not at all amazing cruise

Dear Sirs! First at all, I Hope that you will really share this text on your page! Me and my wife were traveling on Nile Sapphire from Aswan to Luxor from 28.12. to 30.12. 2021. 1. Free pick up which you offer Customers have posibility to choose pick up time from their hotel. I choose for 9:00. Rude person with phone number +201121107247 was laying to me that my hotel has free boat to the cruiser (you can check it on whatsapp), that car needs to my hotel 45 minutes, (he could send it 45 minutes earlier, even then, my hotel was on island, not reachable by car, could simply send boat to pick us up) and forcing me to change pick up time to 10:00. At the end we went to the ship on our expences. Also for free transer which you advertise, to our hotel in Luxor nobody contacted us, we paid for it. Departure Should be at 12 pm, it was at 15:14. We have lost 3 hours, could spend them on Aswan souk instead. Ship Nice ship, friendly staff, (except cashier), very comfortable bed, great variety of food. We were without internet for whole yourney. Only crew in restaurant were wearing masks, some of guests were wearing masks, other crew members were not wearing masks at all. There was no temperature check as advertised. TV: 10 chanells, 8 Arabic, 1 French, BBC without voice. Members of crew were knocking on the door on two occasions with stupid questions, even the "do not disturb" sign was on the door. Probably because of late departure from Aswan we were only 42 minutes in Komombo temple, not enough time at all for such a nice place, we could stay longer, as the ship was then sailing on trough the night. Day two We were without hot water, it came only in the late evening. In the morning we were leaving ship at 6:30!!! for Edfu temple. We went to the temple with carriages, was an awfull frenetic experience, coachmen beating horses, traffic jams on the road as all the cruises have the same schedule, huge crowd in the temple, we were there less than 40 minutes, not enough time at all. Dangerous, uncomfortable race between many carriages back to the Nile. Would be nicer and safer to go by car or bus. My wife got diarrhea and fever before lunch. She was poisoned with food on the ship, as we were not eating elsewhere. She was womiting many times, there was no hot water to wash her. I was asking for doctor or medicines at the reception, but they dont have neither paracethamol, after nobody was asking how she is. When leaving ship she could barely walk. We arrived in Luxor after 17h. Our pier was 4 km from the city center, you have time only to visit Luxor temple, other places are already closed. When I paid for extra expences on board, cashier was not wiling to give me an bill or any prove that my extra expences on board are paid, he said this is not their sistem. Next morning check out time at 8:00!!! To my opinion such things doesnt happen by case, they are allways present in Egypt, people there are a little chaotic, bad organized, and they cant fix bad service with their friendly behavior, it is nonsense to offer five stars cruise. They are not able to offer what you advertise! If they say ship is 5 star, you can advertise it 3 star or less. We expect at least half of our payment back! All the best, Andrej and Marjana Kaluza

Appalling way of treating customers by company but very nice cruise and knowledgeable and helpful guide
NilsFlorian_M

We booked this cruise more than four weeks in advance and scheduled our trip to Egypt around this Nile cruise (Alexandria, Cairo and Aswan before, and Luxor and Hurghada after the cruise). Five days before the scheduled departure, when we were just about to leave Cairo for Aswan, I was contacted by someone from SpecialTrips via WhatsApp that the cruise would not run on the dates we booked, even though the trip was confirmed upon booking (we had already paid for it and received tickets). Without offering an apology, the guy from SpecialTrips asked us to either move the cruise to one day before or the day after the original departure. Looking through other reviews on Tripadvisor, we noticed that this seems to have happened to other customers before, in some cases even closer to the scheduled departure. This is completely unacceptable. We understand that the current situation with Covid might lead to certain cruises not reaching full capacity, but this has to be communicated in advance. You simply cannot make customers believe that they are booking for a certain date and even confirm the trip only to communicate at short notice that the trip won’t take place after all. How can you expect customers to be this flexible when you know exactly that your target customers do in all likelyhood not live in Egypt but come from abroad and have very likely booked other hotels and activities before and after the Nile cruise. Since we were able to change the hotel reservations for Aswan and Luxor at short notice and since we had planned for enough time in Aswan to justify leaving earlier, we decided to do the cruise one day before the one we originally booked. The cruise itself was very nice, the food was pretty decent and our guide Ahmad did an outstanding job at explaining to us the significance of the Kom Ombu-, Edfu-, Karnak- and Luxor-Temples and was very helpful in coordinating with us the purchase of the Luxor Passes at Karnak (for which you need USD instead of Egyptian Pounds and all kinds of other ridiculous things such as passport photos) as well as with everything else. For this we would rate the trip 4/5. Even though the cruise ended up being a good experience, the highly unprofessional way in which SpecialTrips treats its customers and outright lies to them would easily warrant a 1/5 rating.

Thank you for your time and your review. Actually we contacted you 11 days before the travel date not 5 days as you wrote and we explained that due to Corona situation the cruise will not depart in this date because there are no enough passengers and we asked you to move the date 1 day before or 1 day after and you decided to move it one day after your travel date. We made for you west bank and east bank tours in luxor besides luxor Airport as complementary you did not pay for it.and also we made for you abu simbel with half the price this was all to apologize besides we called you several times during your cruise package to say sorry although this could happen due to Corona situation anytime anywhere. and thanks that you wrote yourself that it was great experience at the end . Thanks again

Five stars for service: specially our guide Mohamed was enthusiastic amidst of being in 106 degree without water or food (fasting). Mike was super helpful, went beyond the call of duty with air ticket changes and COVID test. Food was also great quality and varied. The cruise is very simple, pretty bared, far from 5 stars. But the staff was very friendly and kind. Mohammed the bartender/DJ was very nice, but they need more servers. When booked the cruise the title said 3 days/ 2 nights cruise with hot air ballon but when we got there, the hot air ballon wasn’t included. Big disappointment. Overall for the price it was worth it and the time frame perfect. People who did more days just went back to the same stops and monuments.

**Concernant notre guide...

**Concernant notre guide : le transport entre les hôtels et le bateau se sont bien passé avec une bonne organisation. Notre guide mickael est très sympa et les excursions étaient intéressantes et amusantes à la fois. Nous le recommandons sans problème. **Concernant le bateau : -nourriture correcte -accueil très médiocre -personnel désagréable et jamais souriant sauf quelques exceptions -propreté médiocre -toutes les boissons, eau incluse, sont excessivement chers (jusqu’à 4 fois plus chère que ce que vous payez en magasin) si vous choisissez ce bateau prévoyez toutes vos boissons et éviter de prendre le forfait boissons a 20€/jr -vous êtes encouragés fortement (limite forcé) à laisser une enveloppe pour récompenser l’équipage. À vous de voir si le service en vaut la peine !
