The meal in the Jamaican restaurant was the best I've ever had, and I particularly liked the company's concern for the environment and its use of biodegradable serving dishes. I loved the journey.

Stop polluting the Nile River

25-Dec-2022

The felucca trip was fantastic, and the pollution of this lovely river by the Nile ships should be addressed.
