Real Client Testimonials November, 2019


We have returned safely from Egypt just two days before the anti-American protests started. The trip exceeded our expectations. Out of the places we have seen in the world, Egypt holds number one position for manmade attractions. That places it over the China Great Wall, Forbidden City, the Thailand Royal Palace, Machu Picchu and Pompeii, etc.

Your company did a terrifically great job. The manager Ahmed had everything well organized and responded to our requests. The individual guide, Wael, was very knowledgeable and conscientious about his job. As an example he traveled over night by bus from Aswan to meet us in the morning at the museum in Cairo.

The original boat that we were put on, the Nile Story was cancelled but Ahmed got us transferred to the Nile Solaris, the boat of our choice, which was great. When we flew to Abu Simbel we didn’t know what to do with our luggage. To resolve this problem, Wael kept it in Aswan and met us at the airport with the luggage when we transferred planes to Cairo.

A great trip, without any sense of insecurity. We highly recommend. Thank you very much.

Just a quick note to thank you for your role in our most outstanding Egyptian vacation.  All of the accommodations and arrangements that you set up ran seamlessly and met or exceeded our expectations.  I am so glad that you recommended transfers to and from the ship to the airport/train station.  It would have been a challenge to arrange those details on site.  Everyone who met us was professional, timely and friendly. Also, the Radamis II was a very lovely ship and the crew again, exceeded our expectations. The ship's tour guide was outstanding and added so very much to our appreciation of what we were seeing and experiencing.  

I wish you the best and hope to have an opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Hi Debby!  

I couldn’t let it pass without writing a thank you. We had a fantastic time, and the part of the trip we organized through you was amazing. I have never met with such great service.

The guides provided were really knowledgeable, I had read a great deal before traveling so I know. The agents, Magdi in Cairo, and Mohammed in Luxor went beyond in their dealings, we were treated like royalty and we appreciated their input when organizing extra trips.

Being the only English speaking people on the ship, (more French and Germans go in summer), we had our own personal guide, a different Mohammed, and he was knowledgeable, smart and funny. He personalized what he showed us to our careers, and our personalities. The vehicles were comfortable and cool after being out in the heat at the sites.

Being a couple of gay men in Egypt we were subject to a lot of sexual harassment. Coming back to the ship was like a safe haven. The room was great, comfortable and clean, and the space was well organized, being so small it never felt cramped. Sailing down the Nile with the window open was a highlight amongst many, thanks again.

Dear Susan,

I have safely returned from Egypt this early morning. It was a  magnificent trip. So many memories and new experiences, which were some of the most tremendous things I've ever seen. I can never forget a sunrise from the top of a sand dune in the Sahara Desert!!!!  All these couldn't have happened without your help. I thank you very  much for your assistance and kindness.                                                                                                                   Mari Nishimura, Tokyo  


This is our second tour we scheduled through your company and have been totally satisfied with both tours.  The current trip to Egypt was extremely professional and informative in everything. Upon arrival we were provided  with a small booklet about Egypt, what to expect, extra things to do, and some general information about Egypt.  The representative that met us at the airport was an extremely nice person ready to offer all the information we needed for having a very good time.  He was also able to schedule us for several extra activities. The two tour guides we had, the Cairo tour guide, and the guide on the Nile River cruise were two people extremely in love with Egypt and it's history.  When they spoke about the history they made you want to love it also.  The sites we saw and the things we were able to do were just amazing.  It was fascinating to visit places that were made thousands of years ago. The guides took us to reputable places to purchase gifts that were of high quality. We would like to thank you for everything you did and look forward to working with you in the future. Thank You,                                                                             Bobby and Debra Carroll, Cherryville, NC.

Eva, just to let you know what a great time we had in Egypt. Thank you for all your advice and help to make this trip possible for us. It exceeded our expectations and left us with many unforgettable memories of the exotic and mysterious places we visited.

Everything went smoothly as per the itinerary, the hotels were very nice and the Nile cruise was a delightful experience. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Our guide was very knowledgeable, (the most knowledgeable we have ever met). He was also very caring and thoughtful and looked after us really well. We felt totally safe in Egypt, learned a lot of new things reshaping some of our preconceived ideas.

We will certainly recommend your company to friends who may be thinking of visiting Egypt.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I just finished my cruise this morning...  It was awesome.  Everything was taken care of, every little detail, and the service and facilities were great.  And the tours were really good.

Just a note to thank you for the excellent arrangements you made for us. Sadly, a previous day train crash prevented us from catching the overnight sleeper train, but your local representative was quick and efficient in helping us to replace it by a flight to Aswan. We had a very good holiday and will certainly use your services again.

 Marilyn Kettle, Glamorgan, UK 


We had a fantastic 10 day trip in Egypt and were very impressed by your professionalism and flexibility - you really made the holiday so enjoyable and stress free for us. 

Your guides and representatives were hugely knowledgeable and always punctual - nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. We were sad to leave and would definitely recommend you and your staff to any friends visiting Egypt in the future. 

Best wishes and many thanks,

                                                                                                                Sarah Stafford, London, UK

We have recently returned from a tour of Egypt "Grand Tour program 7". It was a very enjoyable holiday and the tour is highly recommended.  In particular I would like to compliment the the professional organization of your local representative, Ahmed.  The organization, the tour guides and drivers and service was excellent.  We found Egypt to be a safe place for tourists despite the uprising a couple of years ago.  I encourage other tourists to consider Egypt as a destination.

We would like to thank you for an unforgettable tour to Egypt (IN CLEOPATRA’S FOOTSTEPS) and Jordan 12th – 28th March. The Hotel Marriott in Cairo was really nice - it keeps up a standard that one can trust and I hope it will do so in the future.

All the land arrangements in Egypt, transfers and tours were outstanding. We were treated like royalty !! All the guides and drivers were extremely enthusiastic, reliable and educating. We would like to express our thanks to Joseph (the airport rep.) who’s smile and warm welcome was a great first impression; Walid (our guide in Cairo) who was always more than willing to fulfill our wishes and make changes accordingly; Maghrabi Essa (our guide on the Nile Cruise) who was on duty from early morning to dawn and made us go safely through all the crowded tourist spots; and Rauf, who greeted us at the Marriott (on both arrivals) making sure we did not have to wait for our room and keeping everything running smoothly.

Again, many many thanks to you and all the persons involved for making this educational, memorable, wonderful journey a dream come true.

Yours sincerely,

Sigrun E. Arnadottir and Eggert Atlason Reykjavik, Iceland


Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a most memorable cruise. The MS Concerto was a brand new ship and it was wonderful. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the trip and your guide Hussain Ashoor was very good. Thank you for putting up with my uncertainties till the last moment. I have recommended your website to all my friends.

Hi Monica,

My husband and I have just returned from Egypt back home. The trip was great, we had lots of fun, thank you for organizing it for us.

 We would also like to thank your representative in Egypt Mr. Ahmad Mahmoud for his help during our stay in Egypt; he is kind, helpful, interesting and efficient. We also enjoyed the accompany of our guide, he is knowledgeable and informative; we learnt a lot from him about the historical culture of Egypt. Overall, we enjoyed the time spent with them :)

It was a different and great experience for us, and we will recommend the trip to our friends.

 I couldn’t help but forward this to everyone.

I recently had a client that booked air to Egypt and then I put a land package together for him piece by piece. The most difficulty I had was finding a company that would sell a Nile Cruise Only. I wanted a 4-5 day cruise from Luxor to Aswan or reverse. After weeks of requests and unconfirmed cruises I came across info on the internet from Blue Danube Holidays.

I called Bettina and within 24 hours she had my client confirmed on a cruise that was departing just over a week later. She had confirmed the space – sent me and invoice and travel vouchers within a 48 hour time frame. I was amazed – and Bettina is the one that made it all happen. Her knowledge and service were top quality so if you are looking for cruises I suggest you call Bettina. 1-800-770-7148
