The train sleeper was tiring as the journey was long and the train was old and shakes a lot. I DO NOT recommend for people who look for comfort or elder person.
The cruise was excellent : comfortable room, nice food, nice staff (especially in the restaurant)
A comfortable limousine and knowledgeable guide were reserved for us for the historical site visits in Aswan and Luxor. Visits in Kom Ombo and Esna where with a larger group of around 25 tourists.
A delegate came to meet us at cairo airport he helped us go throught all visa procedure which was helpfull (this service was a free extra as it was not included in the original program).

Dear Valued Guest , “Thank-you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry if you didn't enjoy the train but we just clear that we only have one sleeper train company around Egypt , so there are not many options when it comes to the trains in Egypt ,, You were a champ! It was a pleasure showing you around.” Stay Safe :)

We took a 4 days Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor during the Christmas holidays including New Years eve. The tour was great - all activities on time, knowledgable guide (Hany, thanks), good service and airconditioned transportation. We also booked an Abu Simbel tour on the second day which I highly recommend. You have plenty of time to do both, sightseeing and also chilling on the deck during the cruise. You see all the major memorials and get to know a lot about the ancient Egyptians.
Overall great experience and highly recommended!

From the minute we arrived from the train in Aswan, we were completely taken care of. Hany was an amazing tour guide from taking personal care of all guests to engaging lectures at the sites. His interactive lectures at the sites and temples really brought the history to life. My teens were totally engaged which isn't sometimes easy to do. He gave thorough information, but also allowed for plenty of free time to never feel rushed. Included lots of extras. Would highly recommend!
The food on the boat was excellent as well as the service on the boat. We didn't want for anything the whole time and enjoyed this trip so much!

The Nile Cruise is a must do. The places are much more beautiful than Cairo.
The boat we had was also five star.

Our tour guide Talaat Abdo was very informative and helpful. From the moment we step on the boat until the last day when we boarded the sleeper train.

Great experience.

Talaat was an awesome tour guide! Very friendly and knowledgeable about many aspects of the sites we visited, and handled all of the questions we had to throw at him. His humor helped keep things interesting and he was very personable with each individual. He was very accomodating and made sure that we were all having a great experience at every step along the way. He also made sure that we were kept informed about the next day's itinerary, and was quick to inform us of any changes in scheduling. Ended up being a great experience, I would recommend taking this tour to anyone looking to explore the great temples and cities along the Nile.

Talaat, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing. He was friendly to work with and with every tour on our many visits, I felt completely comfortable and safe. His knowledge on Egyptian history and the sites are vast and enriched my own view on the ancient Egyptian culture. Highly recommended.

First, it's important to know that the primary role of this tour operator (the people you pay the money to) is to provide guides and transfers from one transportation mode to another. It's a different guide in each place, and they were pretty good, except for the trip to Abu Simbel, where the guide didn't show up; this wasn't much of a problem.
Now, for the components of the trip:
- Overnight trains to Aswan and from Luxor: you wouldn't expect trains in Egypt to be like the ones in France, and they aren't, but they are adequate. And unexpected benefit is that they provide meals, and they were pretty good. One problem on the southbound trip was people smoking in the hallways; this didn't happen on the northbound trip.
- The boat trip was pretty good; good food and lots of it. The cabin was great. One pleasant surprise was the Isna locks; it's a technology you learn about in school, but rarely experience. Two problems; The sun deck (the entire top floor, which includes a pool and a bar) was "smoking everywhere". A lot of the staff were "trained seals"; they have a rudimentary knowledge of English, and aren't really capable of responding to requests.

Dear Valued Guest Thank you for taking the time to review our tours .. We would like to clear 2 points ( 1- Sleeper train is only one company in Egypt and i don't know why you think it should be like the one in France although middle east is not Europe ,, 2- Sun deck is open area under the sky and it has a smoking area part because it can't be anywhere else ,,,,,,,, We really appreciate every word you have written and we will do our best to make our service meet our guests' desires ,, All the Best ,,Egypt Best Holidays Team

This was a great trip and really the best way to see the sights of Aswan and Luxor. Our guides--Magdi (Big Mac) in Aswan, Mohammed in Kom Ombo, Khaled in Luxor, and (I didn't get his name) in Edfu--were fantastic and very informative. In all but Edfu, my friend and I were the only ones on the tour, so it was essentially a private tour. All our drivers were very courteous and friendly, and it's so nice to be driven from site to site in an air-conditioned car. The sleeper train was nicer than I expected based on other reviews, with clean bathrooms and comfortable enough beds. Our ship was the MS Hapi V, and I was also pleasantly surprised by the cabin, as large as a hotel room, and the food was good. I'd definitely recommend this tour and this company!
