“A Cruise to remember”

published 10/01/2006

See all the ancient towns cities and temples

The heat, but only if you let it grt to you

During one of our holidays to Crocodile Island at Luxor in Egypt we signed up to go on a Nile Cruise with our tour operator, Thomsons. It was for four days and three nights and cost £330 all inclusive this included an outside cabin, (a window cabin), all meals some buffet some a la Carte, our own...

“Holiday of a Lifetime”

published 30/10/2005

Lots of Interesting Things to See

Tiring

My dad and I had always wanted to go to Egypt so this year we decided that we'd push the boat out (excuse the pun) and do it. We booked up with Discover Egypt after a friend had told us how good they were and what a good time they had. We took off from Manchester airport at ten in the morning on...

NILE CRUISE: PART TWO *********************** Having had a fair number of favourable comments on my first attempt at a Ciao review, and having re-read my offering, and those of the much more experienced reviewers here, I thought I'd put a little more flesh on its bones, as it were; beefed up by...

A truly wonderful experience

Maybe a dodgy tummy.

Baksheesh, Baksheesh, he called as his grubby hand came towards me, I was not being threatened just the normal request in Egypt if anyone does anything for you. After avoiding all the bag carriers at Luxor airport a simple thing like lifting our cases onto the coach, something we take for granted...

History and having a Thomson rep at all times

Please read my review

Please read my review

I have been to Egypt twice and this was my Husbands first trip. We flew here from Tel Aviv on El Al Airlines. The Nile looks like a snake, as it is not as wide as I had imagined it would be. When the River reaches Khartoum it becomes one River that has two sources, (the Blue Nile from Ethiopia...

Cruising shows the history of Egypt in a snap shot

Very tiring

Trying to find a honeymoon venue that would not prove too expensive over Christmas turned out to be harder than we ever imagined. Eventually whilst reading the Daily Mail Travel Section I discovered a fantastic week long cruise down the Nile going out in December and including 10 free excursions...

“An amazing time had by all”

published 01/04/2005

Breath taking views and a wealth of information

Not enough time to see every thing

What a wonderful week we have had in the beautiful land of the Pharohs. After a long flight (this is another review) we arrived in to Luxor airport which if you had never been to this part of the world could have been a shock. The arrivals hall was chaotic with holiday makers looking lost and...

Hassling from traders and local guides

We have just returned from an amazing holiday on the upper Nile. We booked through Cosmos and they used a Flash International boat called Magic 1. The boat was clean, tidy and realatively plush. The crew were friendly and always ready for a joke. The food was very good - not resturant standard...
