• THE NILE VALLEY HOLIDAY REVIEWS

The Nile Valley
Those who holiday in Egypt to explore the relics of its ancient civilisation generally opt for a cruise on one of the luxury steamers that ply up and down the Nile River between Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. From the top deck of the boat one can fully appreciate the wonder of the Nile Valley, amore
A Nile Cruise - Linda Beavan. Date of travel: Nov 2007
A Nile Cruise
An enjoyable experience. Beautiful sites, peaceful cruising. Well organised trips. Accomodation below expectations due to misleading information by Longwood Holidays and beware they do not tell you that if you follow on to the Red Sea resort you have a 5 and 7 hour transfers ahead of you!! Totally unsuitable for my 80yr old mother, spoilt the holiday and I had given them all details and I had received lots of false reassurance. Not to be trusted. Pity.
Nile cruise - S Johnson. Date of travel: Jul 2006
This is my second Nile cruise, can not fault the places visited or the magic of a cruise down the Nile. However the boat stayed on MS Nile Commodore was tired and dated the staff (cabin staff especially) were over familiar and hassled for baksheesh more than the stall holders around the temples did when they were selling you things! Was not impressed with Thomson service at Luxor airport or on board. Brought a couple of things to our rep's attention, over familiarity of staff being one and was told this was just their way. Also wanted to book an extra excursion on our free day to Abydos, (although not somewhere Thomson took guests) it shouldn't have been too hard to help us find out how to book taxis etc to get there, our rep couldn't help with this and just said it would be expensive to do we informed her that we had asked other guests we had become friendly with and they were keen to go, she assured us she would look into the possibility of transport for us and we are still waiting for a response! VERY DISSAPOINTED WITH THOMSON. However don't let me put you off what can be a wonderful experience just be careful who you book with. I'm booked on my next cruise this Christmas but am not going with Thomson!!!
One of my best holidays - Chris and Samm (S). Date of travel: Apr 2004
The Nile Valley is a brilliant location, incredible sites with plenty of time to see everything. Most cultural trip I've been on.
