Meal at the restaurant of the boat seemed to me delicious enough. Meal seemed also diverse enough first days. Probably by the third day of the cruise, having been satiated with this meal, it would be desirable already something another.
The cost of meal was included into the cost of the cruise. Therefore I do not know, how much our breakfasts, dinners and suppers cost. I paid only for beer (20LE = $ 4), fresh juice (9LE = $ 2) and tea (7LE = $ 1,5). The payment occurred only once - in the end of the cruise.

An unpleasant tourist trap of Kom Ombo (as in almost every Egyptian sight) were huge crowds of tourists which simultaneously were in the Temple. Though the operating time of the Temple is since early morning till the evening I've got an impression, that all tourists who this day intended to examine the Temple appeared there simultaneously just when we came.
We had to wait for 2-5 minutes before getting an opportunity to watch ancient medicine instruments and calendar paintings. Guide’s explanations on different languages were hearing from everywhere. But - nothing to do!
