Third rate entertainment by folks who wouldn't be hired at any of the Mississippi Casinos. The music is way too loud and if you ask them to tone it down they performers just amp the volume up higher. The food is mediocre buffet quality and as is typical, any type of beverage, even water, is at extra charge

I was invited on this dinner cruise and for me, as a seasoned traveler, I wasn't too impressed. The boat doesn't really cruise far - just sits out in the Nile while you first partake of a buffet with lots of variety (and it was good). And then dinner is followed by a very touristy style show with music, belly... More

Did a Nile dinner cruise on Pharaohs on our last night in Cairo. It was okay all around but there were so many people the line to the buffet was so long, and the food almost ran out.

I went with low expectation hearing about bad cruising experiences from other travels in other boats so was pleasantly surprised by the excellent experience we had, got to say we got lucky in choosing Nile Pharaohs as our Nile Dinner Cruise.

My wife and I only had a couple nights in Cairo and decided to do a nile cruise. Nothing special about the food, but the entertainment was excellent and it was fun sailing up and down the nile taking in the views. They even have alcoholic drinks you can buy for reasonable prices.

Perfectly located right next to our hotel, so a great first night out in Cairo for our family. The introduction to Egyptian food was great, and at the buffet one could pick and choose and taste a bit of everything.
