The Spectacular Nile for Solo Travellers

This was a truly amazing tour. I loved everything about it. Egypt is wonderful and the Nile is so beautiful. To visit the tombs and temples I've only seen on TV before was a joy - in fact I really couldn't believe I was actually there! Our guide was Randa. She is such a lovely lady and an extremely knowledgable historian. She could answer every question we had and in addition cared for us so well throughout the week. There were 26 people in our group and we had the ship (MS Hamees) entirely to ourselves apart for another half dozen people who left after the second day. Although the Hamees is not a new ship (as I think is the case with all Nile cruisers) she had recently been refurbished and was lovely. The staff on board couldn't do enough to keep us happy. The weather was very warm (37 degrees one day) but the ship is airconditioned and so were the coaches used for our tours. I wasn't able to get a visa online prior to leaving for Egypt but it was very simple to buy one at Luxor Airport. It only took a couple of minutes and I was able to purchase some Egyptian currency at the same time. To anyone who is nervous about being a solo traveller or about visiting Egypt I would say just go for it. I'm sure you won't regret it. Thank you once again Riviera!
