  • MS Tulip Feb 2022

    I would like to express our thanks for a wonderful holiday to Egypt. It was so well organised, everyone was friendly and helpful. Your guides were very knowledgeable. It was my 60th Birthday while I was in holiday and the boat did a surprise celebration and a cake of the event, without any of our party saying anything, which was lovely. I don't think the holiday could have been any better and I would certainly recommend your company to our friends. Well done to you all. Karen

  • MS Tulip 21 March 2022

    Tulip Nile cruise March 2022. We had a really wonderful holiday courtesy of Discover Egypt. The MS Tulip was a really spacious and comfortable boat, our bedroom was much larger than I was expecting – plenty of storage space and an excellently comfy bed. It helped that the other guests were good fun and the excursions were well thought out and didn’t disappoint. Omar, the trips’ Egyptologists was an absolute delight. He was knowledgeable, passionate and hardworking. It was a truly lovely holiday and definitely exceeded our expectations. All at head office seems to know their stuff and offered flexibility when we needed it, so an overall professional and hassle free experience. Thank you all! Chrissie - Oxfordshire.

  • Full of superlatives - FEB 2022

    Steigenberger Pyramids and MS Tulip February 2022 Just got back from our 10-day trip to Cairo (3 nights) followed by 7 nights on MS Tulip. What a fantastic trip full of superlatives. Particularly high points include: Amazing guides (Amhad Badawy in Cairo and Ahmad Al Mozamel on Tulip) who combined huge enthusiasm/positivity, vast knowledge with an ability to convey it in remarkable English, and an unstinting dedication to providing a 1st class client experience Very attentive customer service by the Wings reps who met us at the airport and organised transfers etc removing hassle and worry - especially valuable given my mother-in-law (Octogenarian) was with us. Fabulous overall standard of service from every member of staff, great accommodation, facilities and food on MS Tulip. I would thoroughly recommend this trip and will refer friends and family to you Jeremy Shropshire

  • Brilliant - 09 Dec Tulip

    just returned from your one week trip on the MS Tulip, Luxor to Aswan and back, and wanted to let you know it was excellent. Exceeded our expectations in every department; beautiful ship, spacious cabin, great food, wonderful friendly staff, really really faultless. And we were blown away by the excursions to the amazing temples and tombs, all vividly brought to life by Ahmed, our incredibly knowledgeable and attentive tour guide who was brilliant. We were looked after every step of the way, from touch down in Luxor, to boarding the plane to leave a week later. I always like to review our trips honestly, but rarely are they so positive. But in this case, thoroughly well deserved. Thanks for a brilliant trip, we shall certainly be recommending you. Brian

  • Wonderful Trip - Tulip Dec 2019

    Dear Philip, we're now back home from our holiday 10 days. I'd like to say we had a wonderful trip to Egypt and everything was top notch, the boat and staff were 101% and our historical visits were exceptional, I would like to praise our great tour guide Muhammed for making it a holiday to remember. His knowledge and enthusiasm reverberated through the group and nothing was too much for him, be it sites, questions, fun or even locating ATM machines, he certainly was the cherry on top of our holiday.

  • 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!
