Cairo with Nuun/Nuut Dahabiya Tour
An extraordinary vacation

The tour was extraordinary. I honestly can't say enough good things about Memphis Tours. Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly and made sure all of our needs and wants were met. This was truly one of the best vacations we had. Highly recommended!

This trip on nuut was the highlight of my Egyptian tour. Nuut exceeded my expectations by a long way! The crew, especially Tito, were fantastic, enthusiastic, and attentive. The food was delicious and there was a good Western/Egyptian balance. We saw many beautiful temples on the way and I loved just watching the Nile go by, which you can do in many different seating spaces on the boat. The rooms are very big and clean with a bathroom which looks so nice that it shouldn't be on the boat. I wish I could do it again! Highly recommend!

Great Experience

Our trip to Egypt was a great experience overall. The pyramids and temples were incredible, and we enjoyed learning about the history and culture of ancient Egypt. The hotel was comfortable and the food was delicious. The dahabiya tour was a unique experience, but the pace was a bit slow for us. Still, we enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the peacefulness of sailing down the Nile.

What a dream tour
, 10/25/22

Loved this part if our trip!
It was really tranquil, well staffed, well organised and the food was delicious. The staff were all lovely and did a little party and song for us on the last night which was amazing. There were only 7 other guests and we had most temples all to ourselves.
On the last night we docked in Esna overnight which was a bit noisy and dusty- it would have been better to have stopped overnight somewhere else, but other than this I cannot fault this experience.
