Nile Cruise and Hurghada Testimonial

We’ve just added a new “Nile Cruise and Hurghada” testimonial on the main Nile Cruises 4u website.

Our clients recently returned from a 1 week Nile Cruise followed by a further week in Hurghada.

You can read the testimonial along with many other on our Nile Cruise Testimonials page or, to save you time, you can read it below:

Dear Barbara,

If you are thinking of going to Egypt or are thinking of going again – now is the time!

The Nile is quiet, the temples and tombs are empty (except for their righful occupants!).

We had a week on the Nile in September on the Sun Boat IV and what a wonderful week. Excellent food and accommodation, perfect service, an informative and enthusiastic guide. For 40 years I have always wanted to see the Nile and it’s temples, after a visit to the exhibition in the British Museum back in the 1970’s. It was everything I hoped for and more and the visit to Abu Simbel was unworldly.

The only “revolution” we came across was a small demonstration because some people’s houses were being knocked down as they were built on some 4000 year old tombs and a group of workers protesting about their poor pay in Hurghada (looks like democracy is taking hold). Nothing compared to what happened in London a week before we travelled.

Our second week was very different in the “Three Corners Sunny Beach” in Hurghada. Highlights were snorkelling on the Red Sea reefs, quad biking over the desert and relaxing on the beach. The downside was that most of Hurghada is a building site, the food in the hotel was bland although plentiful. This particular hotel was a bit “Butlins on the Red Sea”.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we are recommending it to all our friends. Next will be Cairo, Alexandria and the Nile Delta.
