Oberoi Zahra Luxury River Cruise

Well - it seemed then that that Egyptians went into the riot when they have learnt we are not coming ! - so we have decided not to cancel due to riots/ social unrest as we have felt we have contributed to it -although unintentionally !

Indeed we have been rewarded very generously going to Egypt right now for many reasons - to start with there were no crowds anywhere - FANTASTIC !  It looked like having sites like Abu Simbel or Edfu Horus temple for yourself.


Then the ship was half empty & the crew was spoiling us with impeccable service . As one of the main objectives of that trip , apart celebration - was to see from close the  ancient Egyptian Civilisation - again, as so few people were on Oberoi Zahra - we have been in a group of four with our Egyptologist guide & he has been adjusting our trips in a bespoke way to optimise it with our interests & expectations.

Least but not last - we think that sympathising with Egyptian revolution is not enough -  apart our moral & political support - they also need us to contribute as far as we can to their economy & as tourism is their most important source of income - so we are indeed feeling very , very comfortable that we have not cancelled.


Overall - it was an unforgettable journey , you travel associate Sakhara Travel were excellent at every place - their reps were waiting for us everywhere & we were whisked through all checks very smoothly - we have really felt pampered !


Thank you for an unforgettable journey!

NB - Thank you for a bottle of champagne which arrived today - it seems that pampering service by The Luxury Cruise Company is never ending !
