  • Surpassed all expectations

    June 2019 I wanted to express my delight and offer my thanks following our recent trip to Egypt. We have never been on a holiday quite like this and it truly surpassed all our expectations. From the moment we landed in Egypt to our departure we could hardly have wanted more assistance at every turn. We found ourselves on a boat with just 19 guests and a staff of 70 to look after us. Our party of four had its own excellent Egyptologist and tour guide. The food and care on the boat was superb. Every day of the cruise brought something new and we were enthralled by the marvellous history and superb scenery. Our time in Cairo, when we are left to ourselves, was generally very good. We were able to see the Pyramids, Egypt museum and the Coptic area with little problem. We felt entirely safe the whole time and would heartily commend Discover Egypt for organising such a memorable time. So, thank you once again. It is highly likely that we would repeat this holiday after a few years and would be recommending others to make the most of the opportunity to discover Egypt for themselves John - London.

  • above and beyond...

    Just back 24 September. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my time both in Cairo and on the Legacy on my recent holiday…I was very comfortable on the Legacy and felt very looked after by the restaurant and kitchen staff who went above and beyond to cater for my vegetarian diet. All the guides, staff, drivers, crew were impeccable and looked after me and my fellow travellers….I am already now saving up to use you again with my eye on the Jordan trip (any special deals for repeat travellers? lol).

  • Steigenberger Legacy 24/9/18

    Just back 01 October - I feel that I must send you this email to express our gratitude and satisfaction with our week aboard the Legacy. My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the suite that you arranged for us, and we will certainly be using Discover Egypt again. The vessel, staff and facilities were second to none. Please accept our sincere thanks for a wonderful, informative and relaxing holiday. Kind regards Steven and Janet

  • Legacy May 2018

    Excellent from start to finish Please do not put off a visit to Egypt, having done 10 days we were looked after from the time we stepped off the first flight to the moment we stepped on the flight home. In between we had a great 3 days in bustling Cairo staying at Le Meridian Pyramids and a fabulous cruise down the Nile on the Steigenberger Legacy. I have learned so much, seen astonishing sites and met some amazing people, Our guide on the boat/visits Walid was very knowledgable and friendly and was excellent with the group of eight we had. The boat staff were outstanding as was the food. The only slight problem was the temperature climbed to an unseasonable 45 degrees, but hey you can`t have everything. Egypt is a stunning country, the people are so welcoming and they need tourism to rise again. Go if you can, soon! Lynne

  • Legacy - January 2018

    Just thought we would drop you a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday in Egypt. All was good - the boat, the food, the sightseeing, the guides all excellent and what better way to pass a few days in January than sailing gently (a little too gently at one stage when a sand bank slowed things down a little too much! and caused a small change of schedule) down the Nile with a some bird watching thrown in and the local scenery to admire. Thanks for a great trip. Peter and Pat - London UK

  • Feb 2018 Wonderful Holiday

    We returned from a wonderful holiday with Discover Egypt last Monday. We particularly would like to sing the praises of our guide who was very thoughtful in her planning for my husband, who has Parkinson's Disease and kindly arranged a wheelchair for him at the museum. Her knowledge was amazing but she was able to convey it with such skill and enthusiasm that we have retained a large amount of the information she shared. We were also very grateful for her flexibility in taking us to the Coptic Church area of old Cairo when we asked questions about the church. All in all we had nothing but praise for her! Those who met us and returned us from the airport were great and the transport provided was also great. Joy – Cheshire.UK

  • Legacy - April 2018

    Just a quick thank you for organising our trip that commenced 2nd April. Even though I am a travel agent it was worth paying for the expertise of Discover Egypt and Wings were brilliant throughout. Janice - London UK

  • Feb 2018 - great holiday

    Feb 26 2018 - We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Egypt. We didn't get chance to fill out the client questionnaire before we left for Luxor and wanted to say that one of the highlights of our time in Cairo was having Amany as our guide. She was fantastic at every level and made those two days very special for the four of us. The other person who was brilliant was Matthew or Matta who looked after the restaurant on the Steigenberger- his help and attentiveness was superb. He really looked after us. Thanks again to Discover Egypt. Mark- Cheshire.
