This was a cruise we always wanted to go on and it did not disappoint. The excursions were just marvelous and our outstanding guide, Walid El-Batouty, made it all come alive for us. By the end of our cruise, we could all read the temple friezes!
The variety of temples and tombs all helped to make Egypt's ancient history come alive. We were also very appreciative of having our questions about Egypt, today, patiently and thoroughly answered.
At all times we felt safe and were aware of the unobtrusive extra care Viking took to allow us all to travel easily, comfortably and without worrying about our safety.
Also, the visit to the new Museum of Egyptian Art (before its opening) was incredibly special. Standing next to King Tut's bed as it was being restored, is a memory I will hold precious all the rest of my life!
We loved our small ship and the staff's excellent care. Thank you so much, one and all!
