  • 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.

  • A special memory

    We have recently returned from a Nile cruise and stay in Cairo. The holiday was excellent and we could not do more than thoroughly recommend it. The boat, The Sonesta Star Goddess was excellent, as was the food and the staff who were very friendly and had a good sense of humour. It is things like this that really make the holiday a special memory. Our guide for this part of the trip was Islam. He was very friendly, knowledgeable without making you feel that you would need to sit an exam later. In talking to our friends we can do no more than recommend DiscoverEgypt, The Sonesta Star Goddess and especially our tour guide Islam. Fran and Trevor 20 February 2017

    Just back from our Nile Cruise on the Star Goddess. The staff take such good care of us we have only to decide which clothes to wear. Lovely lovely crew. So friendly and hardworking. The food was excellent as usual. Thank you to everyone on the ship and our Egyotologist for the week Ashraf. Start saving for next time now.

  • Best holiday ever - May 2016

    We returned back to the UK on 31st May 2016 after spending 10 very enjoyable days in Egypt. We wish to convey our thanks to all concerned both in the UK and Egypt for making the holiday truly memorable, it has been without doubt the best holiday we have taken. The organisation, advice and information, locations and helpfulness of all staff encountered beforehand and then in both Cairo and on the Nile cruise were exemplary. From the moment we were met at Cairo airport by Mohammed, we were looked after in a way we had never previously experienced. Mohammed, our driver Ahmed and Egyptologist Abeer were wonderful. The stay in Cairo was everything we hoped for and far more. The Nile cruise aboard the Sonesta Star Goddess can only be described as magical, the staff were fantastic, the food superb and Omar Habibi our guide, was without doubt, exceptional in terms of his knowledge, patience and making us feel welcome in his homeland. If Discover Egypt has any form of recognition awards we would like to nominate Omar Habibi for exceptional service, he is a truly wonderful ambassador for both Egypt and Discover Egypt. We enjoyed every minute of our time in Egypt, we hoped that the holiday would be enjoyable but what we encountered far exceeded all expectations. Thank you for the best holiday we have taken and for the best 50th birthday Elaine could ever have had. We will definitely be in touch to book with Discover Egypt for us to return to Egypt hopefully next year. Shaun and Elaine

  • Wonderful, wonderful August 2014

    This just to let you know, we had a wonderful, wonderful time on our Egyptian holiday. The Nile Cruise was out of this world. I was expecting the image painted by Agatha Christie from the 1920's and when we were moved to the Sonesta boats, that's just about what we got with a modern twist. The tours were excellent, informative and Mohsen really brought the ancient Egyptian world to life. Hurghada was very different, being as it was a family resort but we soon adapted and enjoyed 2 great excursions with your guide. Overall a superb time was had by all and we would like to thank all your staff for their expertise and attentive care during our stay Jenny 11 August 2014
