    I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent Nile cruise on MS Mayfair. The arrangements you made were impeccable. The food, the accommodation, the hospitality on board, the excursions and our guide Omar were all outstandingly good. Many thanks indeed. Regards James - Brighton

    December 2016 - MS Mayfair Just a quick note to say that we had a wonderful holiday. The support provided in Egypt was great.

And thank you for arranging what was a complex travel arrangements for us and my niece. Mr and Mrs J.Harrow,Middlesex

  • Ms Mayfair - wonderful holiday!

    MS Mayfair 19 September 2016 I can't thank you enough for another wonderful holiday! I have just returned from my second trip to Egypt, as a solo traveller this time, organised by this fantastic company! Collected at the airport by one of several English speaking guides, I was taken to MS Mayfair, docked in Luxor. It certainly doesn't disappoint, it offers luxurious accommodation, exceptional service & scrumptious food. I also knew I would be so well looked after & safe, these people go the extra mile for sure, they are so caring, they really want you to enjoy their country! I thoroughly enjoyed the excursions, although I had visited these places before, I was given another perspective by a different guide this time. The guides are extremely knowledgeable & so passionate about these wonders. I made an additional trip this time to Abu Simbel & wow... it was a truly awesome sight. We travelled by road & were also able to witness the breath-taking sunrise over the Sahara as well as the incredible 'Mirage'. I will return for sure & hope to venture further using MS Mayfair as a base, it is exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to do this trip alone again, I felt so safe at all times. Thank you again to Discover Egypt for providing a wonderful itinerary & to all staff for making this another very special experience. Carol – Somerset.

  • MS Mayfair 05 sep 2016

    Nile Cruise 05 September 2016 I just wanted to say thank you we had a fantastic holiday. The Mayfair was amazing - the cabins are lovely spacious and spotless. The staff are very hard working and so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble and they always found time for a chat. The food is outstanding and anything you don't like or eat was swooped for an alternative. The itinerary was perfect and our guide Waleed so knowledgeable and you can tell he loves what he does he brought Egypt to life for me who had no previous experience of the country. The holiday was superbly organised and everything went smoothly Sue – Manchester.

  • Wonderful holiday - MS Mayfair

    MS Mayfair – MAY 2016 We have recently returned from a two week holiday in Egypt with Discover Egypt and we would like to thank you for what was a wonderful holiday experience. It was a holiday which lived up to every expectation and was great value for money. We will certainly consider future holidays with your company and will be recommending you to family and friends. The first week of our holiday was a Nile cruise from 2nd May 2016 to 9th May on board the MS Mayfair, sailing from Luxor to Aswan and return. Although both of us have been to Egypt on holiday before, this was our first ever cruise and what a wonderful experience it was. I can honestly say that the MS Mayfair looked exactly as it was portrayed in your website pictures but in reality everything was much more spacious than it appeared in the pictures. The word which best described this vessel would be luxurious. The crew were extremely friendly and helpful at all times and the same was true of Waleed, our tour guide/Egyptologist who accompanied us for the whole week. Our Discover Egypt group consisted of only 18 passengers and we were joined for a few days at a time by some American guests. As a group we got on very well socially and we met some lovely people who enhanced the holiday experience. Whilst it was lovely to have so few people on such a large vessel at the same time we felt so sorry for the crew and the struggling Egyptian Tourism industry. It is as safe to holiday in Egypt as any other holiday destination and at no time during our stay did we feel in any danger. In fact the security at Luxor airport was far superior to Heathrow. Suitcases were examined twice, hand luggage examined four times, numerous body searches and we were swabbed twice checking for explosives! It is high time that more flights to Egypt are made available to the British tourist and more destinations catered for. The standard of cuisine was excellent and I cannot see where anyone would have cause for complaint. The food was at all times plentiful and there were always plenty of options to choose from leading to the tendency to over eat! During the entire cruise I am not aware of any of the group suffering from a stomach bug. We opted for the all-inclusive drinks package which was value for money and essential in view of the temperatures. It was great to be able to order drinks without having to worry about a bill at the end of the holiday. Only having holidayed in Egypt in the past during the month of November I was surprised by how much hotter it was in May. Daily temperatures were regularly in excess of 40c which admittedly made some of the excursions rather hard going, especially where no shade was available. One evening when we stepped on the sundeck at 11pm the temperature was still 31c. The included excursion programme was excellent and also was great value for money. Had you to pay for each of the excursions privately it would have cost a small fortune. Our guide Waleed was very informative and very patient and allowed us plenty of time at each destination. All in all, the weeks cruise was a wonderful experience and something we would both like to enjoy again in the future. Yours sincerely Paul and Anne May 2016


    3 NIGHTS CAIRO,7 NIGHTS MS MAYFAIR CRUISE. March 28 2016 I can't thank you enough Discover Egypt, you all helped so much with any questions, 1st class service. Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel, Cairo, was fabulous, the guides, Amal & Mohammed were like friends & we felt totally safe at all times. The staff couldn't do enough for us at the Hotel & on the cruise. We were taken to 2 lovely restaurants to eat on the excursions we booked in Cairo, great food & excellent service, above & beyond what we expected! Ms Mayfair is luxurious, plenty of delicious food, the staff attentive & superb guides Walid & Ash. Everyone went that bit further to ensure we were happy & had everything we needed. It makes me sad to see how the media have destroyed tourism here, the people are so friendly & helpful, we felt so safe wherever we were. The trips were very well organised & I have to say there were more than several spine tingling moments, seeing these wonders & hearing how they engineered these monuments without today's equipment & technology, astounding! Amal & Walid spoke with passion & made each trip a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this holiday & really could go on & on. I've booked to go back on the cruise in May, on my own as I regret not doing some of the excursions & I know I will be well looked after. I think that says it all, truly a holiday of a lifetime! One last thing, if you enjoy a glass or 2 of excellent wine or beer with your meals or even a short, I would take the drinks package, fantastic value. Many many thanks to all! Carol – Somerset.

  • an amazing holiday

    MS MAYFAIR 04 APRIL 2016 My family has just returned from our trip down the Nile and I just wanted to tell you that we had the most amazing time! The organisation and application of the details were first class. Everyone did as promised with no problems what so ever. Cairo was fabulous, the Mayfair was stunning and the guide Islam was superb. It truly was one of the best holidays ever according to all 4 of us! I can't praise everything enough from beginning to end. Needless to say we will start saving to do a similar trip in a few years we hope when we can learn more! Thanks to you and Please pass on our wholehearted thanks to the guys in Egypt who gave us such an amazing holiday. Angela

  • A memorable holiday - March 2016

    A group of 4 of us recently went on a Nile cruise and I wanted to write and express our satisfaction with the whole booking. The week before the cruise you wrote and told us we were being moved to the MS Mayfair sad the boat we had booked was not sailing. We arrive to a lovely clean, happy, helpful boat and staff and this remained for the whole of the cruise even when there were only 12 of us on board. The rooms were a good size, well-appointed and clean. The public areas were very nicely furnished with the exception of the roof terrace where the cushions were looking a little tired and need the covers replacing. The tours were excellent and I have to say a big thank you to Hassan, our guide, who made them so interesting and memorable. His knowledge was fantastic and we learnt so much. The food on the boat was very good, we personally preferred the buffet style dinner rather than a menu to choose from but all the food was wonderful. If we had one criticism it was that we paid for the all-inclusive drinks package and often felt like 2nd class citizens as we weren't given bottles of beer but glasses, we were given small glasses of wine when others had large. I understand that you are trying to prevent abuse but this is not the sort of trip where that happens and we just wanted to feel valued, take that you had taken £360 for drinks from the 4 of us and I'm sure not many other people spent that during the cruise. (Editor’s note: The All-inclusive concept is always offered in this way – drinks by the glass) Many thanks again for a very memorable holiday Suzanne – Hampshire.

  • Memorable and Magic

    Nile Cruise - March 2016 I would like to say what an amazing holiday it was. Magical and memorable just about sums it up. The staff on board went that extra mile to make everything just that little bit special. The security was impressive and the Egyptian people so welcoming and friendly. I just feel sad that more tourists are not visiting Egypt. It has so much to offer and it felt completely safe. Thank you for organising such a wonderful holiday for me. Mrs W. Surrey.

  • Wonderful holiday - March 2014

    Just to say that a friend and I are just back from Egypt and need to tell you all that we had a wonderful time (11/3 – 25/3). Our flight was from Manchester to Cairo and then Cairo to Luxor. We were met at Cairo by a representative of Discover Egypt and taken to immigration to get our Visas. Thank you for making this as easy as possible – we may have struggled on our own. We were them met at Luxor and escorted to the Royal Viking. We spent the first week on the Royal Viking cruising the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, visiting temples along the way. We can only say that we had not experienced anything like it. The knowledge of our Guide – Mohammed was endless, there was no questions left unanswered. The Crew on board the Royal Viking were brilliant – from the waiters in the bar to the cabin lads. Nothing was too much trouble. We never new what sort of towel art we would find when we went back to our cabin in the evening – brilliant. One of the day when we were sailing all day we were given a tour of the boat, even the kitchens – as you would expect all preparation areas where colour co-ordinated and scrupulously clean. We always appreciated the warm flannels and drink on our return to the boat after an outing. All in all a very good week. The cruise was a wonderful experience and will stay with us forever. We then transferred to The Movenpick in Hurghada. Once again – not disappointed. Large clean comfortable room, comfy beds and staff that could not do enough for you. Animation Team worked really hard to make your stay as relaxed as possible whilst not vegetating. Not many English about but we certainly let them know that we were there. Great rivalry playing French Boules with the Russians and Saudis alike. Restaurant was large (you could eat inside or out) with excellent waiters and tables were cleared efficiently. Beach Bar open all day for drinks and snacks with again welcoming smiles and very efficient service. Captains Bar was also run effortlessly. We were asked numerous times a day if there was anything else they could do to make our stay any better. Thank you Discover Egypt for organising this fabulous experience for us, and we sure that this is the norm and not the exception – so everyone we would recommend Discover Egypt to all our friends and family.
