A Nile cruise is so much more than a conventional holiday. You journey back in time drifting serenely down the River Nile, sitting on the deck of your floating hotel, sipping an iced drink, watching the culture of 5000 years pass by.
Often described as Egypt’s most ancient highway, a cruise along this magical waterway can be the experience of a life time. From the magical temples of Luxor and Karnak to the stunning Valley of the Kings – the burial place of the Pharaohs, Temple of Queen Hatchepsut – one of the most remarkable monuments of Egyptian architecture to the romantic temple of Isis at Philae.
Optional excursions include a visit to the majestic monument of Abu Simbel, sound and light shows at Luxor and Aswan and a hot air balloon trip over Luxor.
Cruising the Nile is a perfect introduction to the Land of the Pharaohs. We can offer 5 star or deluxe boats or even the traditional style ‘dahabiyyas’ – beautifully crafted wooden ships with 4-10 cabins and a host of servants.
Why not extend your stay for 3 nights or longer and take in a trip to Cairo. Here you will be able to see the mighty Pyramids and the awe inspiring Sphinx.. The antiquities of the Egyptian Museum are a must.
Alternatively you can extend your stay at Luxor or the beach resorts of El Gouna, Hurgahada and Sharm El Sheik.
Egypt’s climate is mild all year round – a natural environment enriched by the Nile River, the Mediterranean and Red Sea beaches, vast miles of desert and secluded oasis. Most noticeable are the friendly and hospitable people.
