We are a group of 12 travelers from India visiting Egypt during Dec - Jan and have an option to book with EHRC (http://www.egyptreservation.com/) for the Presidential Nile Cruise (pending advance payment)
But we also wanted to check if we can do this directly with PNC (www.pnccruises.com). As far as I understand they do not have direct booking facility and always go through agencies
Can anyone let us know ?

Also on the train bookings we are finding it tough even to register on the Egyptian National Railways Site - http://www.egyptrail.gov.eg/docs/index.html
Again, for this do we need to go the agency way or can we book directly ?

  • If Presidential Nile Cruises provide the online payment fascility on their website then I guess it will be ok to book directly with them. For the trains I would recommend that you do it through a travel agency. Egypt Holidays Directory about 9 years ago

    Hi there - I think it is probably not possible to book direct as Presidential deal with Thomsons which are a very large company for package tours especially in the UK. So a lot of their boats would be booked by them... I think you will need to use an agency. There are plenty of companies with whom you can book direct although you will often get a better deal with an agency. Different agencies have different relationships with different cruise companies. You will be required to pay in advance with everyone.

    For train either use an agency, who will usually charge you a fee, or go to the train station yourself when you are here. For the sleeper train it is better to book your tickets the day before if possible... http://www.seat61.com/Egypt.htm#How to book

    all the very best for your Egyptian holiday - you'll love it
