Egypt Holiday - Nile Cruise, Luxor, El Gouna and Cairo
Just wanted to take the time to contact you and say how much we enjoyed our recent holiday with you.
We booked the 7 day MS Sherry Nile cruise, followed by 6 nights at the Sofitel in Luxor, 3 nights in Movenpick El Gouna and finally 4 nights at Le Spinx Mercure in Cairo. The whole holiday was fantastic, superbly organised with excellent excursions and guides.
Starting with the MS Sherry - the cabin was great although we did expect a balcony, staff were most helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. The guide, Yaser, was excellent and looked after us extremely well - the excursions went very smoothly and were reasonably priced. The hot air balloon with Hod Hod Soliman was especially fantastic. We were surprised at where the ship was berthed - a rather run down area well away from the centre of Luxor and quite isolated, a berth near Luxor town as previous clients had reported would have been preferable.
The Sofitel in Karnak was again very friendly and well organised, very clean, good facilities, good food, spotless and very safe pool in an idyllic location over looking the Nile - fantastic sunsets. The rep Ibrahim was very helpful regarding a problem we had with the shuttle bus. The transfer to Hurghada by minibus was again well organised and very comfortable, and both the driver and rep were excellent.
Movenpick El Gouna was perhaps the only disappointment as our room was a considerable distance from the main facilities and restaurants and when the rain and winds came it was a big disadvantage as we got cold and wet. The room itself was very nice and backed on to the beach and Red Sea. The transfer and flight to Cairo were very efficient and even driving through central Cairo in the 'hectic' traffic was made enjoyable by Ahmed from Excel.
The Mercure Cairo hotel was also fine with a view of the pyramids as requested. Again our guide Ahmed and driver Milac were superb even accompanying us to the pyramids in rain and hail storms and we felt perfectly safe and secure at all times.
Overall it was one the best holidays we have ever had - and we've had lots! The organisation and attention to detail was perfect and we shall certainly recommend both the trip and your company to friends and family as the Egyptians are a most friendly people and the current situation is obviously affecting tourism - the reps and guides were responsible and caring at all times and would not jeopardise our safety - this was evident when we wished to go to Alexandria and they ensured all was ok before booking it.
We're hoping to organise a future holiday to India through your company as we have been most impressed.
