I was looking for a travel agency to book Dahabeya, came across Minamar agency online. The contact person was Raed Sedky, communication started in October 11 for the trip that took place in January 2012. He answered every question, his reply was timely and efficient.

“Hotels excellent as was the Nile Cruise. The overnight train from Cairo to Aswan was more basic so be prepared with anti bacs and your own food and drink. That said the hospitality of the man on the train was excellent and full of good humour and it was part of the whole experience To do it seeing so much in the morning travelling south by the Nile to Aswan”
