For the last ten years i've always been to either Cyprus, Greece or Spain until this year when I felt like something different. My other half and I booked a week in Egypt followed by a week Cruising the Nile, and I must say it is the best holiday I have ever had. I have already booked for next year.
We were surfing the web for ideas when we found a site called www.Justegypt.com We couldn't make our minds up out of Diving in Sharm el Sheikh, Lazing by the pool in El Gouna or doing the Pyramids etc. So we eventually decided on doing the touristy bit followed by a Nile Cruise.
It was excellent!!! we visited all the main tourist parts which was excellent but also did some of the excursions the website offered. But I must say the highlight was the Nile Cruise. We were on the Nile Emerald for 7 days (which flew by) and went to Karnak, Valley of the kings and Aswan among other places. The nightlife on the boat was very good too. We got to know quite a few other couples and made some good friends.
And I must recommend www.Justegypt.com they were very reasonable and the quality of the all round holiday was exceptional.
So it's thumbs up to the holiday and for once the Tour Operator too! and no I don't work for them. Being ex Lunn Poly it takes a lot for me to rave about a travel agent.
