I booked our 4 days cruise through the company and they were very helpful in answering all our questions and give all the help we needed during the cruise. Our guide: Abdulhadi was amazing guide, shared lots of info with us, very useful hints and tips, he was very caring and friendly. Also Mr, Hani our main focal contact foe the whole trip. I strongly recommend them if you are planning any trip to Egypt, especially Luxor & Aswan as we enjoyed all the activities they arranged for us, especially the hot air ballon.

What a great experience from Hany & his team at Imperial Egypt. Great communication and well organized. A special thanks to our wonderful guide Hady. He spoke fluent English and as an Egyptologist, he was knowledgeable about anything and everything. All in all, he made learning and experiencing Egypt so much fun.

We had a wonderful 3 night, 4 days cruise with private tours around the temples and sights from Aswan to Luxor, and Abu Simbel. It was non-stop sightseeing -Abu Simbel, Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor, Valley of the Kings (Hatshepsut's site & more. The highlight was our tour guide Mostafa Molattam who was with us for the entire trip, from picking us up at the airport in Aswan, to drop off at Luxor. ​He was passionate, kind, friendly, and extremely accommodating. He is very knowledgeable and his English is very good. We learned so much during our 4 day tour and he was open to many questions. He was available 24/7 for any of our needs. It was lovely to have him stay on the ship for the duration and are therefore ready to initiate each day trip before breakfast. We could not have been given better service. The cruise organised by the company, Imperial Egypt, was very comfortable. The ship, Jaz - Crown Jubilee was in good condition and the services of the staff, facilities and rooms were clean and excellent. The food on the cruise was very good, rooms were clean, beautiful view from the top of the ship which had a pool and bar. Also, beautiful view from the room windows. The staff was very attentive and very friendly. Hany the tour operator is also very professional and kept in touch with us by WhatsApp. Mostafa is a trained Egyptologist, and the passion he has for his job is apparent, whether describing the battle scenes depicted on the outside wall of the temples, or when deciphering the hieroglyphics to tell the stories of Kings, Pharaohs and Gods. An awesome experience to hear the history from someone like him. In addition, Mostafa attended to our every need effortlessly and proactively. Transportation was very comfortable and always there waiting. Mostafa was accommodating, and is very caring that is above and beyond his job requirements, whether recommending local food, arranging PCR tests, arranging to load my phone with mobile data, exchanging currency, nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this tour option and requesting Mostafa as the guide! We felt like we had a friend who could help us with all we needed and not just our tour guide. The Nile River cruise exceeded our expectations. Loved it! All in all, the experience with Imperial Egypt was excellent!

We booked a 3 night river cruise with a private tour guide, and were assigned Hossam Rashwan. We could not have been given better service. Hossam is a trained Egyptologist, and the passion he has for his job is apparent, whether describing the battle scenes depicted on the outside wall of the temples, or when decyphering the hieroglyphics to tell the stories of Kings, Pharaohs and Gods. An awesome experience to hear the history from someone like him. Hossam created the itinerary based upon the river cruise schedule, but also worked in many off-the-beaten-track attractions for us. In Aswan he took us to an Aromatherapy place that gives introductory tours into the perfume industry. We learned that every fragrance in the world is made of a mixture of oils still produced today. You name a brand, and they can mix a few bottles and produce the scent. Absolutely amazing. In the Nubian Village he took us to a spice vendor, which gave a sample tour of all the unique spices in the Arabic world; some smell and some taste (watch out for the one that sounds like "dung"). We wanted to do several things not included in the river cruise, and Hossam handed all of the bookings for us, including the sunrise hot air balloon ride over Valley of the Kings, a day trip to Abydos, and to the temples of his hometown of Dendera. Hossam also got us 'extras' on the general tours. We met the Director of Restorations in Karnak who gave us personal access to the "Sphynx Road" which was being prepared for a Presidential Inauguration visit. He even put us to work helping to reconstruct one of the sphynx statues on the road (there is now a granite statue stone on that 3km road with our personal dna on it!). Most importantly of all, Hossam will work out a verbal coding system with you to know when a vendor is trying to overcharge you, or when a price is fair or even a bargain. He will inform you in advance what a 'fee' should be, and what a normal tip would be for specific things. I cannot tell you how much money he saved us overall. We originally thought to do the trip on our own, but in hindsight it would have been a miserable experience. So many people out to fleece you, that it could easily ruin a vacation. Hossam took good care of us, and entertained us through everything. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

From start to finish our trip with Imperial Egypt had 0 issues. We booked directly through the Imperial Egypt site, and Hany was extremely prompt with his emails and follow-up. We had questions answered and the booking completed within 2 days. We made it a point to book directly with operators since we know how much the country has been impacted by the loss of tourism dollars, and wanted to make sure they received every cent. We had a great guide for our entire trip. Hady is knowledgable and funny! He made our trip very enjoyable. He explained all things about Egyptology to us, and has a thorough background of information since he went to school for it. And he was always on time! We definitely recommend that you ask for him as a guide! Our driver was also fantastic. We felt safe with him navigating us through our sites. We were driven from Aswan to Luxor, which gave us an opportunity to really see the local areas. This was a great trip, and we recommend Hady and Imperial Egypt for you!
