Overall an awesome experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. The selection of sites was thoughtfully put together. I did not like the fact that while on the boat the WiFi signal was not av at available in my room and very weak in designated parts of the boat. The room was often too cold and I learned late in the cruise that the boat was not outfitted with heat.

This trip exceeded my expectations! Everyone was professional and knowledgeable. The guides were wonderful and helpful! The only negative comment I would have about traveling to Egypt was that it was not handicapped accessible. While I expected the monuments to be a challenge, I did not expect the boat ( ship) to only have stairs, and it was 4 flights to get from our cabin to dinner. But the wonderful staff and food on the ship compensated for the difficulty going up and down! It was wonderfully orchestrated from the moment we arrived until we left...A trip of a lifetime!

my only issue was the lack of support for child accommodations and pricing before the trip but once at the destinations they were fully accommodating

Traflager- All expected expenses were not disclosed prior to trip. Tipping became tedious and bottled water was not provided on the river boat even though you could not drink the water onboard. The hotels in Cairo were Not acceptable - mold & mildew.

Boat and rooms were very old and food was same exact same dishes all three meals everyday and all days on boat all 11 days...

The trip was amazing from start to finish!

Traffalgar exceeded above and beyand my expectation.
