Dahabeya Judi 10 March 2013
Dear Abeer, Noha and Sayed,
we are back in Germany after a wonderful week on the Nile. Thank you very much for a perfect organisation and the wonderful cruise on the dahabiya Judi. i will recommand it here in Germany and I hope I can make some other people to have this unique experience.
Here is my more detailed honest feedback:
Travel organization through Oriental Tours Egypt:
Big compliment: You did a great job to plan our trip. I know i am not always easy and have always lots of questions
Your colleagues in Luxor and Assuan were friendly helpful and always in time. The van in Aswan was in good condition,
Abdullah was a good guide. We appreciated that he is an expert Egyptologist. We also had a good time with him on board but he also was not always all over us.
The tour details and excursions were very interesting and good timed. The only point that I think was a bit dissapointing, that you wrote to me that our excursion program includes in Aswan “Philae” and the “High Damm”, but Abdullah told us its only one of the 2. We would have had time enough for both of it and the last afternoon on board was kind of boring because the location was not too nice and there was not much to do.
All crew members were very friendly, helpful and nice. Captain Mohamed took good care of us and especially Tarek did a good professional and very friendly job serving us on board.
Food & Beverage:
The food was good and we had no stomach problems at all. We liked the local wine and the drink prices are reasonable and fair.
The rooms and the suite are nice, good sized and the beds are comfortable. The air condition ist not working very well.
The roof deck is really beautiful and comfortable, much nicer than on most other dahabiyas we saw during our trip. But the deck chairs are a too small for adult men and not very comfortable.
Dahabiya Judi - General impression:
As I wrote before i love the “Judi” and I think the oriental style of the boat is what many Europeans love.
Thank you very much for everything and I hope the tourism form Europe will increase soon again.
