02/10/2006 - Alexander The Great

I would just like to say thanks to Discover Egypt & Viking Tours! I went on Alexander the Great, then 2 days in Cairo at the Mena House in October. Everyone was very helpful, efficient, and friendly. The whole holiday was smooth, the hotels fabulous and the boat amazing - especially Adel, the restaurant manager and Iman (sp?) our guide, who was enthusiastic and very knowledgable. The food was lovely and the rooms spotless spacious. Altogether the trip of a lifetime!

03/10/2006 - Alexander The Great Nile Cruise

My wife and I had a week on The Alexander the Great from 3 - 9 October 2006. We were in "The Reds" suite. It was truly a wonderful experience. I could not fault it. The luxury of the suite was beyond what I expected. Superb. The food and the service was out of this world. Mr. Adel your restaurant manager was a class apart, I'd have him here in London tomorrow if I could! Your Chef produced the most varietous food display every day, amazing! Your bar staff were silky smooth with their service and so polite and efficient. Your houseboys/cabin boys were the best I have ever encountered for service. The boat, the Nile, the overall service, the weather, the sights we saw made it the best week's holiday I probably ever had - far exceeding any of my expectations. The tour guide, Ayman, was quite amazing - honest, helpful, he obviously loves the English and when I go back to Luxor I'll look him up as he was such a true gentleman. I met the owner of the Alexander the Great whilst on board and we have a great talk together about service, standards and style and I told him personally that he had the perfect boat here on the Nile and he should be a very proud man. Well done to you all - service still lives - it is Egypt, on the Nile, in one boat in particular, it's called The Alexander the Great.....well done.


26/10/2006 - Alexander The Great Nile Cruise

We recently spent a week on a Nile cruise, on the Alexander the Great, which we booked through you, we had a fantastic time. The boat and all the staff were wonderful, with fantastic service and amazing food all the way, our guide Hiyman?? was brilliant he made our holiday perfect, his knowledge and sense of humour, fantastic. I would certainly recommend this boat to others who might be looking for more of an upmarket Nile cruise, this is it, slowly sailing up the Nile, while all the other boats race past.


20/11/2006 - Alexander The Great 20 November 2006

My wife and I recently travelled to Egypt with you for a week on the Nile between 20 and 27 November on the "Alexander the Great". We would like to say how very much we enjoyed this trip. The arrangements were all excellent and also the services of our Guide Hussein. He was both knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and very capable. The numbers were approximately 30 for the majority of the trip and this was also a bonus.

The guide on the Alexander the Great was not only highly informative, but also caring and considerate to everyone in the group. We really can not praise everyone enough. The whole trip was memorable and magical. Thank you. Regards,

Mark and Kerry, We just arrived back from our week in Egypt on the Alexander the Great cruise ship. It was a wonderful holiday. All the arrangements went according to plan. Your relationship there with Viking Travel is excellent. I know we filled a form out there but wanted to let your company know directly what a fantastic time we had. We cannot fault it. Thanks so much and hopefully we will be going again next Feb.

08/05/2007 - I will have no hesitation in recommending Discover Egypt

Hi Marie, I have just returned from my trip and would like to say how much I appreciated all that Discover Egypt did to make the whole experience so great. All the arrangements, transfers, flights, representatives, guides and tours were flawless and I was looked after brilliantly - taking all the potential stress out of the holiday - thank you all so very much. I will have no hesitation in recommending Discover Egypt to anyone thinking of traveling to Egypt. With my very grateful thanks,


23/07/2007 - An unforgettable wedding anniversary

just a short note to thank all the staff who organised our memorable holiday. My wife Janice and myself had the holiday of a lifetime and an unforgettable 20th wedding anniversary on board the alexander the great.we were also very lucky to have a great bunch of people on the tour and we got on really well. I must single out our guide mohammed for special praise as he made egyptian history come to life as my wife 300+ photos show.We must also state that form the moment we got to luxor until we got back to the airport to come home we got what I consider to be the best customer service we have ever had on a holiday and that goes from the ships captain down to the guy who cleaned our room at any of the 4 hotels we were in over the holiday..Every where we went to either a temple or the mena house hotel in cairo we were in awe of this fantastic country and despite my wife finding out she was allergic to mosquito bites which she took for the team on our wedding anniversary balloon trip everyone was very considerate to her .Her legs were the talk of the cruise and everyone kept asking huw she was but Janice is a trooper and nothing was going to spoil this holiday and it didnt.Her legs are back to normal but that was down to the Hilton hotels doctor in Hughada and his pills so a big thanks there to. So finally a wonderful holiday which we will be coming back to in the future and if my wife will stop talking about it for a minute she would agree with me .many thanks again alastair and janice
