£20pp for transfers and £95pp for the excursion package (not sure why you'd do the cruise without doing the excursions) so £412.50 total still an ok price though, about £10 cheaper than red sea holidays for example.

Very good deal. Voted hot. Also the temperature is just right now.

What a load of rubbish the comment above - dont you love it when people talk nonsense! Just came back from Cairo a week ago and have been going every few months. Best time to go now - very very safe, not soo many tourist around and temp just right.

In fact using the grey matter would indicate the streets of london or any other city centre on late night is much more of a risk to health then egypt.

I was there in the height of the revolution and never felt unsafe - the only issue was one of practicality. I have always found egypt to be much much safer then some european countries.

No problems in Luxor??? What about the 76 shot dead a few years ago?? Fair enough most were German but still.....

I love it how people slate these holidays due to unrest, do you honestly think travel agents would sell holidays to dangerous places, also they take advice from the foreign office. You go to the USA and can get shot you have more chance of getting shot here. I could understand if the post was 2 weeks full board in Pakistan in a villa previously own by Osama bin laden or country side retreat in rural Afghanistan
#13
hot, it is safe in Luxor thu
#14
Violent or not unfortunately you still have a very high chance of serious stomach problems on a Nile cruise. I'd love to do one but researched it and decided against. No doubt there will be a pile of responses from people who went without problems but the fact is that digestive sickness is pretty well endemic on many of those boats.

Having voted hot but having had a good look at the offer, it seems that the information on what you are actually getting for your money is very scarce.

It's all very well offering an optional excursion package but it seems to me that there is no information on what's included in the basic price if you DON'T take the excursion package and no information on what you get if you DO take the excursion package!!!

During that time, a female reporter was attacked, so I wouldn't say Kairo is safe. Now even less so with Mubarak gone and the current state of anarchy...
Why else do you think the holiday prices to Egypt are gone down so much?
#20
is that worse than the newspaper seller killed by cops or 7/7 attack in london ? Terrorism is all over the world so nowhere is 100% safe, live in cotton wool or get out and enjoy your life.

I went on a nile cruise last year and never felt unsafe and it one of the best holidays ive been on. Who wants to go half way around the world to lie on a sun lounger 24 hours per day? certainly not me

^What she said. Witnessed it more times than I can remember and even I had loose motions. The water on the boat is supposed to be filtered Nile water. Emphasis on 'supposed to be'.

Always makes me laugh reading the comments from those who make out they have worldly experience but in actual fact have never left their trailer and get all their information from the TV!

OMG someone got shot in London a few years ago, don't go to England unless you bring a bullet proof vest, and watch out for the machine guns!

And the agricultural produce uses human excrement as fertiliser.

Get those greens (with a shade of brown) in you!

Voted hot. Check out the Cosmos website for other Egyptian deals from other Airports.
Dont forget Topcashback too. Health warning, Chesck out other websites for health tips and buy Antinal tablets when you get there and take one a day and you should be fine.

When i go to Egypt I always take these and have never had any tummy problems well worth a shot:

That's the funniest thing that I've read in a long time.

Human excrement has been used as a fertiliser since man took his first dump in a field. In the developing world, it is the normal way to fertilise and I think you will find it a lot less troublesome than factory produced fertiliser!! Generically, excrement is a widely used as a fertiliser, what else is it that you think you can smell when driving through arable countryside in this country???

Before Hong Kong reverted to the Chinese, there was an interesting trade going on. The Chinese supplied HK with water and it was "paid for" in sewage that was piped back to China for use as fertiliser. It may even still be the case.

If you grow anything yourself for eating, you will likely be using reprocessed excrement, albeit chicken sh*t. You might even be unpleasantly surprised to discover what goes into a lot of animal foodstuffs.

I went to Egypt last year and I have to say I hated it, we stayed in hurghada, the airport was a joke! (coming & going), stayed in a 5* hotel and the food was crap, everyone demands tips (I only tip if I get good service, as it should be everywhere)

I was told by my travel agent that this was the best place to go for couples, god knows if we'd of gone to sharm!

Such a dirty country, full of grabbers

Overall best part of the holiday was landing back at Manchester, never again

I had exactly the same experience as you, and I also went to Hurghada. :-(
The following year I went to Turkey and I have to say I had 100% better experience!
Cheap Egypt holiday - no thank you!

State of anarchy?! what a load of bull. I've just come back from Egypt, and it was fine. Several women have been raped in the uk over the last couple of weeks yet you don't seem bothered about that.

And fyi Mubarak's still in Cairo.

watch out for machine guns!

ironically enough, the only time I saw any machine guns (well automatic weapons) was at Gatwick, where there was a large Police presence all armed with G36Cs.

I've been to Marmaris, it's full of money grabbing, drive you round the bend touts and shopkeepers. I hated the place.

As for the food in Marmaris, went to one of the main eating places on the waterfront and asked what Turkish vegetarian food they had and the only thing the waiter could offer was their Turkish Pizza!!! Considering how much of the country's cuisine is vegetarian that was a bad joke.

To all of you doom-mongerers, I've visited Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and even Afghanistan over the last several decades and only been assaulted once - in Hertfordshire.

Some of you sound like you read the Daily Mail and believe everything they 'report'

Egypt is safe to visit. There have been no reports of tourist being killed. Egypt and Egyptians have no issue with tourists. And as for that female reporter who was assaulted. Check her story - she's changed it like 4 times.

I suggest don't booking the excursions on the website, do it in Egypt you'll get it less than half price with a bit of haggling.

And for those who are complaining about the water (before you've even gone) - bottled water is the cheapest thing in Egypt. You can buy 2 litre mineral water for 17p.

Bunch of (unfunny) Karl Pilkington's on here.

Not as silly a comment as you would make it appear. Whilst in the Luxor area the numbers of heavily armed tourist police are evident where-ever you do. Around the Valley of the Kings there were many such AK-47 toting police, with pick-up trucks parked up at regular intervals that had large machine guns on the back.

We took a cruise up the Nile to visit the temple at Dendara and on the back of the boat there was looked like a WWII belt machine gun that appeared loaded and ready for action. I thought that it was phoney but the hotel assured me when I got back that they are obliged by law to have them. I didn't feel any less safe, but these things are there and accidents could happen.
