Best trip ever by skip10615

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Ra / Destination: River Cruises - Egypt/Africa

Words and pictures will never do this cruise justice. It is our 7th Viking cruise and the best ever. Experiencing a culture that is 20000-5000 years old was just amazing. We took the Israel pre-excursion to Jerusalem and Bethlehem which was also outstanding. All our guides were absolutely the best. It is going to take some time to actually process all that we saw and experienced. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. For those concerned about security in Egypt, it was not a concern. On several occasions we had police escorts and we had armed guards with us all the time. Egypt takes tourist security very seriously.

Unbelievably awesome trip! by biandrews

We loved everything about this trip. The guides - Tarek and Walid were wonderful as were the ports. For those worried about security, we had an armed guard with us whenever we left the ship.

One of the Best Vacations in 20 Years by SherryLucy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Ra / Destination: River Cruises - Egypt/Africa

Highly recommended to do the Jeruselem pre-tour. This allowed your to meet and bond with many guests, and we remined as a group during the cruise. Overall, the 43 days in Cairo and the cruse was spectacular. We never felt unsafe (we did have armed escorts and police cruisers with us). This was a highly educational, spiritual and enlightening trip. I highly recomend putting this on your bucket list. Viking does a fabulous job.

Incredible itinerary, excellent staff, wonderful memories! by barcar1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Ra / Destination: River Cruises - Egypt/Africa

This was a bucket list trip for a couple in our travel group so we went along with not very high expectations. The itinerary, planning and execution of this trip by Viking (amid some extenuating circumstances) plus the amazing sights and experiences were incredible. I will now encourage everyone to make this trip and enjoy the culture, temples, tombs, pyramids and history of Egypt. Viking has made sure that they include all the major sites, add on some bonus ones, cover all security issues, have extra staff to make each transfer seamless and have excellent onboard staff to oversee it all. The Ra is beautiful, comfortable and well designed. I'm hoping that the trip hasn't spoiled me for the Viking Homelands cruise in September and the Waterways of the Tsars trip scheduled next year!
