  • MS TULIP 29 April 2019

    MS Tulip - Luxor to Aswan 7 day Nile Cruise 29 April 2019 Myself and my family have just returned from an amazing holiday on MS Tulip. It was the first visit to Egypt for my family and my seventh as I love the country and people very much, however, this was my first experience sailing on this beautiful boat. The fabulous food and service onboard is second to none. The Manager and staff could not do enough to make this a memorable holiday for all of us, all so friendly and helpful. The decor is stunning, cabins spacious, all areas so clean, kept to such a high standard. The guide, Omar, was fabulous as usual, very knowledgeable and went out of his way to ensure we had a wonderful time, not only during the inclusive trips but also a coffee shop experience in his hometown. I can not rate this holiday company and MS Tulip & staff highly enough. Thank you for a memorable & wonderful holiday yet again! Carol, Somerset

  • Whole week on Tulip amazing

    We have just returned from one of your cruises on the MS Tulip (31st December to 7th January). I would like to pass on my thanks to everyone who made our holiday such an experience. All the staff were wonderful, helpful and the whole week was amazing. However, I want to make a special reference to our guide, Mohammed. What an absolute treasure you have there. Such knowledge and a lovely manner. As an archaeologist myself, with having had very little previous dealings with Egyptian Archaeology, I had a lot of questions and he showed so much patience. He really is an asset to your trips and I cannot praise him enough. I do hope he continues to work for you as he such a fabulous representative for both yourselves and Egypt. Many thanks again for a wonderful experience. Penny - Shropshire.

  • Nov 2018.. we have discovered Egypt!

    November 2018 - We had a great time on our 10 day Egypt tour / Nile cruise. We never had a problem and everything from meet & greet to hotels, cruises and tours were all looked after and properly arranged. Our Cairo guide, Mrs. Amal (Hope), was very helpful and amazingly knowledgeable. She interacted with the group and was very pleasant and sociable, even after those long, long days. The love for her job and pride for Egypt was evident. Our guide in Luxor, Mohamed Fouad, was equally up to the task! Mr. Fouad was always available to resolved issues and went out of his way to accommodate our wishes...even going off the tourist path to experience some amazing Turkish coffee at local coffee houses. His knowledge of the sites are exceptional, his kindness refreshing, his professionalism outstanding. Combining all of the above, from the time we set foot in Cairo, to the time we lifted it in Luxor, we can truly say we have discovered Egypt!

  • First class - November 2015

    Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our recent trip to Egypt courtesy of Discover Egypt. Our 14 night trip consisting of Nile Cruise, stay at Luxor's Maritim Hotel and 3 nights at Cairo's Mena House Hotel ended on 7 December 2015. The reps at all stages were brilliant arriving on schedule and meeting our needs in arranging excursions and providing us with the necessary information to make out holiday stress-free. The guides-particularly Radwan, Mohommed and Abdul were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable and looked after us very well throughout. The hotels we stayed at suited us well, particularly the Maritim Jollie Ville in Luxor which was first class. November 2015

  • Cruise and Cairo - February 2014

    It goes without saying that my daughter and I enjoyed our Nile Cruise with your company. I hope the message gets around that this area is safe for tourism to Egypt. Ray from Clywd

  • Very impressed - January 2014

    Just to let you know my friend and I had a wonderful trip and were very impressed with all the arrangements/guides/travel etc in Egypt - all went without any problems at all. Well done to you all and the team. Mollie

  • Viking Princess and Mercure Le Sphinx

    Thank you for arranging an incredible holiday. The cruise was fantastic and it's a great company to go with. We saw a few of the other Nile cruise ships and the Viking Princess is by far the best. The reps and the guides were great in explaining everything and it was so luxurious! The excursions was so well organised and I learnt so much. Cairo was really great as well.The hotel(Mercure Le Sphinx) was really clean with great views of the pyramids and really friendly staff. The pool is great as is the spa and there are beautiful grounds. Thank you! Sarah and Dave

  • Worked like clockwork

    We have just returned from our Egyptian trip and I have to compliment Discover Egypt for the organization of our trip. It worked like clockwork. All the transfers were extremely efficient. The Nile Cruise was remarkable and we both felt handled very well. Our guides were very knowledgeable in fact what they didn't know about Egypt was not worth knowing. The hotel in Cairo was lovely overlooking the Pyramids and the tours in Cairo were also extremely well organized. In fact we did not have one complaint about the whole trip. I will definitely promote Discover Egypt to any of my friends who want to do this journey and there seems to be quite a bit of interest. Once again many thanks Regards Linda and Mike Calgary, Alberta

  • Amazing 10 days!

    Hi there We have just spent the most amazing 10 days - 7 days sailing on Royal Viking on the Nile with stops at Temples and the Valley of the Kings on the way then on to Cairo to see the Pyramids and downtown Cairo. I can't praise Discover Egypt enough. Your reps and guides looked after us every step of the way from the moment we arrived in Egypt until we got back on the plane to fly home. Facilities on the Royal Viking and at the Ramses Hilton were outstanding. The service was excellent and all done with a smile. I never felt any unwillingness, only a genuine desire to see we were well looked after. I would especially like to mention Amira Zaki who was our guide on the Nile cruise and Ayman Fathy who was with us for our day at the pyramids and Saqqara. Their knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none. Not only did we hear about ancient Egypt but we were also given an insight into modern day Egypt. It all made the holiday that much more memorable and they are to be commended for their efforts and the constant high standard of their work. I shall definitely recommend this holiday. Many thanks - Liz Tyne and Wear

  • Classic Egypt

    I would just like to offer my thanks for the faultless arrangements you oversaw for our recent cruise on the Nile and hotel stay in Cairo Egypt. I would have no hesitation in recommending fellow Brits to take a cruise on the Nile, particularly the MS Royal Viking, where the cleanliness and catering arrangements were first class. The staff were both friendly and accommodating. The local Agent “Discover Egypt” has some excellent Guides who spoke English fluently, whilst having a commanding knowledge of their local history. Well done again! Kevin
