So much to say: – Merna took contact with me from the beginning. She was really helpful and kept contact everyday to know if all was okay – However, the room that I had during the cruise was in very bad bad shape and definitely not was I expected. Everything felt old and not taken care of. The WC were not clean when I arrived and the entrance carpet was wet and dirty. Also one of the electrical socket got inside the wall when I tried to turn the light one and represented a potential hazard. – The first day was amazing, the drivers drove quite fast on the road which allowed to arrive before the crowd! The Abu Simbel temple was stunning. – The guide of the 3rd day was really nice. Her name was Jacqueline and her explanation were really clear. I really enjoyed the tour. – Merna offered me a free transfer to the airport as a compensation for the cruise room situation and the two gentlemen who brought me there were really nice.
