AFI2016: 7 Nights
Visits to the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, Temples of Hatshepsut, Karnac and Luxor, and the Egyptian Museum at Cairo were a 'not to be missed' lifetime experience. The Mirage 1 was a clean and efficient boat with a colonial style and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Everyone was amazingly attentive, punctual and friendly. One of our best holidays ever. Really it was a great adventure - thank you Cox & Kings. Mr Michael Sumpster
