                                                        A memorable and outstanding holiday

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Forget cruising on the Nile - if you really want to see Egypt in all its many facets, stay at Riverbank House. It's a most beautiful home, light and airy, with a simplicity and faithfulness to its Egyptian design and detail, with fantastic views across the Nile to the Temple at Luxor and the Winter Palace to the front, and the mountain at the back. It is so peaceful, and with Mahdi and Sayid preparing wonderful meals, and Khyry organising all our excursions, wherever we wanted to go, nothing could be more relaxing. Partly because he accompanied us, and also because the local people are so warm and welcoming, we felt entirely safe. We adored the trip up the Nile in the dahabiya, and the richness of the bird life in the shallow waters of the banks is a joy for anyone interested in ornithology. Visiting the temple at Esna was a bonus - it was fascinating to see how the Greeks and Romans adapted their own religion to incorporate Egyptian gods and goddesses. More locally, there is plenty to do. We enjoyed swimming in the hotel outdoor pool, set in pleasant gardens, just a short walk away, and it was interesting walking through the village and along the paths by the banks of the Nile, seeing how the local people make use of the fertile soil to grow crops and feed cattle, a little glimpse into true Egyptian life. Of course, if you want to visit Egyptian tombs and the Valley of the Kings, these are right on your doorstep. Altogether, I cannot think of a more lovely place to stay, looked after by such attentive people, and with such varied and interesting things to do and see: a perfect and memorable holiday.

                                                        Wonderful Holiday

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Wonderful! Absolutely Wonderful. There's not much point repeating everything that's already been said as it is abundantly clear that everyone who has been on this boat has had the same experience. We cannot praise the Explore team highly enough from the moment we booked the trip to the moment we returned. Professionalism and attention to detail shone through at every level. All the information provided beforehand was detailed, relevant and thorough and every element of the trip itself was very well organised and although all transfers to all the sites were arranged, it never once felt like we were being herded about as we had our own dedicated Egyptologist on hand to guide us through any level of detail we wanted. The itinerary was flexible and there was plenty of time to relax on board to enjoy and marvel at the scenery as we sailed. The crew were fantastic as was the food and service. The balance was perfect. Dawn and I also took the optional flight to Abu Simbel and that was also extremely well organised. I joined TA originally to quiz other posters when we were thinking about booking as it seemed almost too good to be true but we were thrilled with our holiday and loved every minute!

                                                        Beautiful villa

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        I had had the pleasure of staying in Villa Rosamund on two occasions before, but it is not of course until you are back there once more beneath the domes and turrets that you remember quite what a truly special place it is. The total antidote to the modern day package tour where hordes of people arrive like cattle on a plane only to enjoy the sunshine version of what they had left behind back in Blighty, my two week stay in Villa Rosamund offered a complete and much needed contrast to the stresses and strains of life back in London. Built recently and extremely sympathetically in the Moorish style, it overlooks a banana plantation with stunning views from most angles which can barely have changed for centures . Close enough to the banks of the Nile to be able to walk with ease (not much more than 5 minutes), yet far enough away that you avoid the hustle and bustle and mosquito colonies that enjoy to assemble after sundown- you get the perfect feeling that you are of Luxor, but not necessarily in it. The beautifully designed thick walls and well connected air conditioning meaning that bedrooms are always seductively cool- even when temperatures outside are pushing 100 degrees. Space is another major plus point here. This well proportioned villa is large enough to accommodate up to ten people comfortably whilst still allowing enough space and nooks and crannies to escape from one another! The roof terrace is a particularly delightful feature- allowing views across the banana plantation and over to the Nile on the one side and to the mountains and the Valleys of the Kings and Queens to the rear. The free standing kitchen on the ground floor is similarly tastefully done (in the French country style) and offers a pleasant environment with a large enough table on which to eat, should you so wish to have a day or night in. One of the great hidden advantages of booking Villa Rosamund comes in human form- in the form of local celebrity Khyry. With a solid relationship with the owners going back many years, Khyry is the man in the know who can make things happen. Always with his ears to the ground, Khyry makes your every need is catered for- from cheerfully picking you up at the airport (helpfully included in the cost of the rental) to arranging cooks for breakfast and lunch should you so choose, to arranging whatever excursion your own heart desires. Egypt, as they say, is the land of possibilities. I only hope I shall return soon...
