Ambiance of the trip was beautiful. The food was 10/10, I highly recommend the trip. The Restaurant gets busy but maybe it is because we booked on a Friday evening. The trip includes a guide that is with you from the pick up at the hotel, and throughout the evening. This helps with language barrier. The entertainment was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Exceptional talents but not good Tour company
allan_a, Apr 2024
The talents of the performers in the ship were incredible. The food was ok. However, the tour company who was assigned to us Emo Tours failed to arrange good seats to us. We understood that the ship was full but we felt so bad that they placed us in a very small table. And because of that the price for the experience was not worth it.
Overall fun but it did feel like I experienced the Nile. Did not get to see the Cairo skylines
Ilham_Y, Apr 2024
Overall a positive experience but the main highlight for me was the entertainment. Amazing band, belly dancer, performer and singer. The food was a huge disappointment extremely tasteless and too salty. The company using an agent to pick you up a hour early with a private driver then customers feeling pressured to tip at the end was quite annoying. Next time I would buy my ticket directly from the cruise not through 3rd party.
A good fun night
David_B, Apr 2024
Good old fashioned fun, food is good and service attentive. Singer and band going through the classics, a belly dancer and more. You could do this one without a guide but would recommend if you are in any way unsure of getting where you need to be at the right time.

Whole trip was fantastic. Ur support staff was very humble and cordial. Cruise trip was mind blowing
It was ok
ABRAHAM_V, Apr 2024
The tour GUIDE was amazing! The boat could be updated. As we were getting to our boat, we noticed there were very nice nile cruises on the same dock..our boat was in dead last in that category. The food could have been a bit better. And this one guy keeps going around almost forcing people to leave a review on Google. I refused to be bullied into writing a review on the spot or lying on a review.. but i will say that the service was pretty good..
Enjoyable evening
Shauna_W, Apr 2024

Knowledgeable diver. Waited patiently on us. Drove safely. Restaurant was the best . Great service from your company!
Not worth. Overrated price.
Calvin_D, Mar 2024
Very quoted Maxim cruise is Luxury cruise, really? Salad as appetizers and one set meal for the cost of $233 for 2 adults and 2 kids? Sadly Later i found out many better Nile cruises with buffet option.. Waste of many.. it doesn't worth a penny.. Hopeless staff.
Great entertainment & good service
Deepak_T, Mar 2024
Booking process seamless. Pick up was right on time. Tour guide courteous. The cruise lived up to its expectations in terms of entertainment. Both, the belly dancer & Tanura performers were excellent and engaged the crowds well. Food could have been better especially desserts which were a bit dry but that would not put me off going again.
Overall a great night in...
Linda_C, Feb 2024
Overall a great night in a lovely venue. Plenty good food and friendly waiters. The Music was great and the belly dancer going round everyone was the icing on the cake (ie made the night).
Total tourist trap
Thomas_B, Feb 2024
Total tourist trap. The boat hardly goes anywhere. You might as well just sit in a room with really loud music and cheap entertainment. Buffet is shocking and whipped away before the before even leaves
ronica_m, Feb 2024
this boat ride was very good . amazing entertainment, great authentic egyptian food in abundance, spectacular view of the nile
Wonderful Nile Cruise: Thanks Hamad!
Habeebuddin_A, Jan 2024
Our Nile cruise was amazing, thanks to our fantastic attendant "Hamad". He was super friendly, and shared interesting info about the sites we visited. The dinner was delicious, and the dance performances made the whole experience extra special. Definitely recommend this great Nile cruise!
RuanaCaroline_Q, Jan 2024
Amazing experience, authentic Egyptian food, really kind staff. The belly dancer and Zofi Dancer are very energetic and they have a nice interaction with the audience. Prepare yourself for tips . I really enjoy Ps: Not a place for kids
Great fun, good experience
Thomas_T, Jan 2024
The whole event was really good! The food was fine, the entertainment was excellent. The boat was crowded--but that probably contributed to the party atmosphere. The transfer to the boat was smooth. The dress code was dressy, but I wouldn't describe it as "formal." The "tour guide" was superfluous and his tendency to ignore my wife and only talk to me was annoying. The driver was awesome and one of the highlights of our trip.
Decent Experience
Belle_N, Jan 2024
It was a decent experience overall. The guide and driver were on time and they were very friendly and accommodating. They even went out of their way to drop by a convenience store on the way back to the hotel cos I needed to get some water. The guide occasionally checked on me throughout the evening so I appreciated that a lot. Food wise, it isn't too bad but it can get a tad salty. I don't think the food was Egyptian cuisine but it's still pretty decent. The entertainment itself was good and people were dancing on the dance floor, but it would be better if they didn't play the music too loud. I was seated right next to the stage and I had to cover my ears. At the end of the right, my right hearing was muffled cos of how blaring the music was. Thankfully, it went back to normal the next day. Do note though that there are photographers there who will make you take a picture with the entertainers and sell you 1 photo for $5. You can say no but that's one part I didn't really like. Also, drinks aren't free so you've to purchase them and it can be very pricey. I bought 1 small bottle of water for EGP50. Overall, it was a decent experience especially with the guide and driver. The guide was very informative and friendly, and was open to questions. They were also punctual with the pickup.
