  • Clockwork arrangements October 2017

    October 2017 - We returned yesterday from our Nile Cruise and Cairo extension and I would like to take the opportunity to say just how much we enjoyed ourselves. All the arrangements went like clockwork and we were very impressed. The MS Mayfair lived up to all our expectations and was a very comfortable boat to sail on. The crew were all friendly and helpful and we felt really relaxed on board. The food was superb but perhaps too much of it! Our guide, Walid did a great job of taking us around the shoreside visits and was very supportive generally, a very nice guy who really knew his stuff. We were never left in doubt about where we should be and when. Egypt can be a bit intimidating to the occasional visitor and Walid did a great job in providing a 'security blanket' which was important in terms of enjoying our holiday. He also has an excellent sense of humour. In Cairo we were met as planned and whisked off to the Mena House by Mohammed. It was well worth the upgrade as we could dine al fresco in the shadow of the pyramids which was a unique experience for us and quite unforgettable. The hotel is lovely and the food in the 139 restaurant is effectively at UK pub prices which is amazing at a 5-star hotel. We did two tours, the Pyramids Sound and Light and the Pyramids and Saqqara. Sound and Light was very good although the driver took a short cut through the alleyways to avoid the traffic which was educational to say the least. I hope the guy being put up against the wall by some others who obviously had a complaint against him got away OK. It seemed like a middle east equivalent of Dickensian London and quite educational in showing how some of the people in Cairo live. Quite a contrast compared with the 5-star hotels half a mile away. We never got the full name of our guide on the Pyramids/Saqqara tour but he did an excellent job of taking us around both sites and telling us about modern day Egypt. We also had the opportunity to visit the solar boat at the Great Pyramid which we missed on our earlier visit and really enjoyed seeing. So, all in all, a great holiday and we are very glad we went.

  • MS MAYFAIR FEB 2017

    We had a fantastic time! The organisation of flights, transfers, boat and excursions was perfect - everything went very smoothly and all the staff and guides were very friendly and attentive. The MS Mayfair was a great boat to be on - we appreciated the quality compared to some others we saw on the river - and made full use of the facilities and the drinks package! We were very lucky to have great weather for our week that made travelling nice - at just the right temperatures. The visits to the Temples were excellent - with so few tourists we could view as much as required with no queues or waiting around. So, big thanks from all of us to all on Board the MS Mayfair and to you for organising a great holiday. We'll be recommending it to anyone who'll listen!
