Hady was our tour guide - you couldn't ask for a more helpful or professional guide!

Amazing experience overall. Imperial are a great travel agent. I tried to book a cruise through a couple of different operators but they were really vague on itinerary and very pushy on prices. Imperial were completely different - Hany responded immediately on WhatsApp at 11pm and by 12pm we had a full fledged itinerary to match the extras we wanted and our travel arrangements, all at a great price.

You can upgrade your boat for about 125 dollars, and it was worth every penny. On Le Fayan we had stunning rooms with panoramic windows, and Michelin level food every night.

What a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this trip. Hanny thé tour operator manager is always available to solve some eventual problems during the trip. Each time I had to complain about something HAny answered very quickly and did the best he could to solve my matter. He has also been very available before the trip regarding some questions about my journey. As a conclusion a very professional manager.

However I would rather recommend going for the 3 night Nile cruise and do west and east bank of Luxor the first day. Unfortunately the boat draws alongside far from Luxor city center and is adjacent to many other boats. Thus there is no point of staying 1 night in Luxor much better to arrive the day where the boat starts sailing towards Edfu.

The highlight of my trip was the encounter with an incredibly professional and friendly guide, Hady. He has been taking care of my well-being during the whole trip even when his guided tour had ended. His knowledge about the Egyptian history is fascinating every possible questions has an answer with Hady. His flexibility to my wishes regarding some visits, interests, … has also amazed me. He also helped me sparing some money by not paying some entrance fees for some sites which he considered less interesting and thus gave the explanations from the outside of the historical site. I knew I could count on him every moment of the trip! I also had some bad experiences with some other guide in Kom ombo and from that point you do realize how much a guide does influence your wellbeing during a journey abroad. As a conclusion If I could rate Hady he would get a 20/20 with no single doubt. I highly recommend you to insist having Hady as a guide during your Trip with Imperial Egypt Tours.

My family and I (wife & I, 2 sons) just completed the 5-day 4-Night from Luxor to Aswan with Imperial Egypt tour company. Truly a 5-star experience on the M/S Blue Shadow; excellent staff, well maintained vessel, excellent facilities and sun deck. Cabins were clean and classy, food was very good and no one experienced any problems throughout the trip, though we did not eat salads or raw vegetables. The tour company operator Hani contacted us as soon as I booked the cruise through Trip Advisor, to arrange the boat cabins on the Blue Shadow vessel and our pick up on arrival in Luxor airport, which went extremely smooth. On this trip we all traveled back in time to ancient Egypt where our tour Guide, Hady, literally brought history to life with his knowledge and details. Hady is an Egyptologist who works on the archeological sites when he is not guiding tours. He is extremely passionate about his work and thus is able to paint living pictures of Pharaohs & Queens, as well as the ancient common people themselves and their daily lives. Egyptian history is extremely rich and Egypt has continuously striven to preserve the temples, tombs and sites, and archaeologists & Egyptologists are continuously discovering new sites. Hady speaks excellent English and has been running tours for 20 years. He knows how to tailor the tour to the client and maintained an excellent schedule for us throughout the tour. He also gave us a very good idea about life in Egypt today, and coached us on the art of tipping, very important. One of the best things I did was to bring two bundles of single US dollars to use for tipping. For our daily private tours, Hady arranged every detail of schedule, support and transport during our days. This Nile Cruise is best done from October to March, as the weather in summer is usually hot (daily 100+ degrees F) and humid. The Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan is a great value with Imperial Egypt: well maintained boats, excellent staff, and a well organized tour. Not to be missed if you are touring Egypt and the Middle East.

We were a little unsure what to expect with covid still at large in the world but couldn't have been happier once we arrived! Excellent assistance from Hany in booking the trip as there were limited boats available. Once settled Mostafa our guide took care of the rest. He did an amazing job in bringing to life the history of Egyptian civilisation during our Temple visits and seemed to know the Egyptian deities inside out. He also answered all our questions about local customs including where to get a local sim card!
Would highly recommend this tour and if you have Mostafa then you'll be very lucky indeed!
Abu Simbel is a must.

We had an amazing 4D3N tour from Luxor to Aswan on MS Sarah. It’s our first time to Egypt, and this is a must do!!

Our guide, Ahmed Aziz is extremely knowledgeable on the ancient history of Egypt, and explained the history of each site we visited with anecdotes that were clear and funny.

The ship, MS Sarah was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. Our flight departed Aswan in the late evening, and they accommodated a late checkout for us. The food onboard the ship was delicious, and amenities top notch. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable.

Overall, our trip was amazing and I would highly recommend anyone coming to Egypt to book a cruise with Imperial Egypt and ask for Ahmed! He went above and beyond in showing us beautiful sites in a good pace. In Aswan, Ahmed took us out to an amazing lunch and taught us about local Egyptian delicacies and culture. At the end of our tour, Ahmed and his colleagues arranged a last minute PCR test, and all communication from the beginning was responded to very promptly. This is a trip that you won’t forget, and be sure to ask for Ahmed!

We had a wonderful trip down the river Nile with our Tour Guide Hady. He was very knowledgable during our day trips and went into great detail about the ancient history of the Egyptians by the end of the trip I felt as if I had lived through the history itself. He was on time picking us up from the airport and every morning he also gave us plenty of time to take pictures and explore the ancient sites. He spoke English extremely well with a fantastic personality. When I return with my own family someday I will 100% make sure I get Hady as our Tour Guide because the experience would not be the same without him. From Karnak temple to the High Dam and the Nubian Village he could pinpoint very specific information and themes used by Ancient Egyptians to further enlighten you.He ensured that everything was clean and sanitary during the trip.He took us to local markets to try the local Egyptian foods and helped us find beautiful souvenirs for the trip home. 10/10 will return to Egypt and 10/10 will recommend Hady. I hope whomever reads this deciding on a trip to Egypt will go on the Blue Shadow II for its fantastic food and service. The cabins were extremely well kept and clean and it was very comfortable. Hani the Guide operator was fantastic with the bookings and always available via phone if necessary And ensured we had a fantastic trip. I would definitely recommend the visit.

The Nile cruise was the BEST way to be able to see so many temples and locations along the stretch of the Nile. It made exploring the distance from Luxor to Aswan super easy. You have a room, transportation, all your meals, a driver, a guide, and most of the entry fees covered. It’s a no brainer. Our guide was Hossam Rashwan. Imperial Egypt was very prompt with any inquiries and Hossam picked us up from our hotel promptly and had a very enthusiastic attitude. He picked up waters for us and stopped to get us falafels too. He started a What’s App group to send us information and pictures of places we’d be visiting and interesting facts about those spots. When Hossam took us to temples and tombs he knew the good spots to see and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own. He was very helpful when we had questions about tipping, and other things we weren’t sure about. Hossam is an excellent guide and was a great asset in explaining so much Egyptian history that we were able to apply what he taught us when we visited the Cairo museum on our own later in our trip. I’d highly recommend Imperial Egypt as your travel company in Egypt and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get Hossam as your guide.

Amazing experience, great to see the Nile pass by. We got to visit many places in a short period of time because of this cruise. Hany from imperial is really on top of things. It's easy to get ripped off in Egypt but we got a great price and he managed to fix a great itinerary for us, fitting everything we needed. We were on the Le Fayan boat, the room was very nice with a stunning view and the staff and food were incredible.

We had Hady as our personal guide who was extremely knowledgable and always on time. He helped organise the trip for us and made the experience very easy and enjoyable. Hady went above and beyond to make our trip smooth, even helping us get a Sim card and get medicine from the pharmacy. Thanks Hady! If you wish to learn a bit about the Egyptian history and culture I would recommend Hady for your trip.

From the very first moment I started to communicate with Hany from Imperional Egypt via email, we already felt we were in good hands. Quick and precise when answering all our queries.
The trip was very well organized in a very nice cruise (Princess Sarah II), clean, convenient and the food was varied and tasty every single day. Our scheduled was organized in a way of getting a good depth into the Pharao’s history.

All crew involved during our trip were beyond expectations. Specially our Egyptologist tour guide Hady, who showed a big passion and thorough knowledge during all our trip. His English was excellent so it helped us to get the full picture every single explanation. I encourage you to ask for him when booking your trip. Our memories from Egypt would have been different if we didn’t have Hady with us. He became not only our tour guide but also our brother. He even helped us to book the PCR test and arranged the lab team to come and take the sample to the boat.
How convenient that was!

All tours are private so they know how to avoid the crowds and reach the temple at the right time, making you feel even more special on their hands.
Such a pleasure having travelled with Imperial Egypt.

It was such a pleasure to do the Nile cruise with Imperial Egypt especially being taken care of by Hady.
All the excursions have been organized well with the great knowledge about Egyptogy of Hady - our tour guide. The cruise is nice, good food and nice service from the staff.
We also received prompt response from Hani - the tour organizer - when we tried to ask for the information of the tour with no hidden fee. The price is extremely good comparing to the market.
We had a wonderful time in Egypt thanks to Imperial Egypt and Hady.
