What people are saying about Kom Ombo

Amazing experience. The ship and the guide were just great. High quality ship ‘Le Fayan’ offers beautiful and cosy rooms and quality food. The excursions included in the itinerary along the cruise were impressively wonderful. And the whole experience was even made better by our funny and wonderful guide, Mr. Ahmed, who has all the knowledge about ancient Egypt and he just goes beyond our expectations and offering us the best experience and service. Thanks!

Our guide Ramzy was very knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about Egyptian history with him. He was always there for us and made sure that we didn’t have any problems. I would totally recommend him to our family and friends. Just be aware that you have to do a lot of tipping, it seems is the way it works here. But apart from that the quality of the tour is excellent.

Very good experience. Zaher was a great tour guide with extensive knowledge and ability to answer any questions. The tour was well organized for the best sights and also has excellent staff and food on board. Would recommend.

Thanks to this all-inclusive package, it was a very good experience, an unbeatable treatment both by the company and by our guide, Mohammed. Thank you very much!!

Very good the tour and the attention of the guide Ahmed!
