Just wanted to thank orbital Travel for the fantastic experience we have just had on a Nile Cruise for our 50th wedding anniversary.


The Orbital rep at the airport was fantastic, on the way in and back out at the end of our holiday, making sure we were in the right place , seeing us through visas etc.


We spent our Nile Cruise on the Royal Esadora, which is clean and modern, though one little niggle – mould in the bathroom, not enough to spoil our stay, as the cabin was clean and spacious, and bathroom generally clean, but this needs sorting.  All the staff on board were excellent, friendly and helpful


Our guide, Marco, was amazing. His knowledge of all the places we visited was exceptional. He helped us know how to identify kings and gods in the temples, and inspired me to read more about them.

He was helpful when we had a couple of small issues- no bath plug (minor) but onc sourced straight away, and diesel fumes in our cabin (not so minor) but he sorted it with the engineers immediately


Our entertainment on board was good, we enjoyed the fancy dress night, and ‘whirling dervish’


Food on board was good, we are vegetarian, and found plenty to eat


So thank you so much, and if you have a review page, please include this as a 5 star experience

Hi there, just felt we had to write to thank you for all the arrangements you made for our recent Croatian holiday.  Every single stage of the arrangement went without a hitch.  Every taxi pickup, flights, the belle de adriatique ship was fabulous, the villa Argentina hotel first class, nothing to complain about.

I hope we can use your holiday company again some time and we will certainly recommend you. 
Thank you, Denise, for all your care

“Royal Esadora Nile Cruise Is A Must!”

My Husband and I, along with our two children aged 12 and 10, have just returned from a fantastic holiday to Egypt. We spent two days in Cairo at the Mena House hotel - WOW what a view. You could almost touch the great pyramid! Excellent Hotel, fantastic position.

Then we travelled to Luxor, where we boarded MS Royal Esadora, for our 7 night Nile Cruise. We were all inclusive, so I cannot comment on the price of drinks etc. What I can say is that this was a fantastic boat. Staff could not do enough for us. Our a-joining cabins were kept very clean and our cabin attendant entertained the children by daily creating animals, objects and replicas of us, with his towel art!!

Our excursions, 12 of which were included in our trip, were just magnificent and brought to life by our very knowledgeable guide, Emad. We also chose the additional trip to Abu Simbel which is simply breath taking! Our children were just in awe of everything that they saw! Please, Please take time to visit this country! It is simply "awesome"! We felt safe and welcomed where ever we went.

Hello Denise,

I thought you might be interested to know that we had a marvellous  time on our Nile cruise last week. The ship was very comfortable and the food and staff were very good also. Sharif, the tour manager cum Egyptologist was first class, knowledgeable in the subject and a more than adequate organiser. Please let them know how much we enjoyed our visit. We shall tell our friends of your service,

Regards and thanks,

Tom and June Freedman - who travelled with us during May 2017 on board Ms Royal Esadora .

Subject: Egypt Holiday

Hi Denise

I thought I should just drop you an email to say what a wonderful time we had in Egypt and how much your staff helped in making it so memorable.  I cannot endorse your firm enough for the professionalism in managing things in Egypt, with all of our contacts extremely helpful and courteous.  We tipped them pretty well mind you, but their assistance was borne from an obvious desire to help, which was gratifying. Most people will be a little cautious when booking to go to Egypt, but having your people on the ground took the anxiety out of it for us.

We have spoken to many friends who have had reservations about going, but have advised them that if they do, they should do so through yourselves.

Thanks again for all your assistance.
