River Nile Cruise is Super Great Trip

Nile Cruise is a spectacular experience specially if you cover all important the temples and tombs, in fact you can't ever visit everything in South Egypt, but this itinerary allows you to cover the most important sites like Karnak, Luxor Temples and Valley of the kings, the boat is wonderful also the meals we just want to taste the Local Egyptian food more than this but after all it's a wonderful experience which I can recommend to everyone with Otto Travel Company.

Amazing Trip From Aswan To Luxor

Where should I start from, this tour was absolutely INCREDIBLE! The tour company Otto Travel is very amazing and the cruise ship itself - Steigenberger Legacy - was such an experience! And of course the trip wouldn't have been enjoyable if it wasn't for our tour guide Mohamed who was super friendly, gave excellent tips, and always took us to the hidden gems places away from the crowd of tourists - and may I add he's an excellent photographer.

This tour experience was brilliant

This tour experience was the highlight of our trip to Egypt. The tour coordinator Ahmed did an excellent job coordinating the details in advance, including a trip to Abu Simbel from Aswan, and a Hot Air Balloon ride over Luxor. When we were picked up in Aswan, it was a seamless trip, with no stress and lots of great experiences. Our guide Doaa deserves and extra star with her knowledge and how well she took care of us, making sure we saw what we wanted to see and that we had a great time. I would highly recommend this tour as a great way to see the sights along the Nile, with great service and a well coordinated experience.
