Description


There is an old saying stating that Egypt is a gift of the Nile, and this certainly rings true in modern day times. Passing through small towns and majestic monuments, Nile cruises offer a unique way to view many of the gems that Egypt has to offer.


This Nile River tour starts on dry land in Egypt’s Capital City, Cairo. Here, you will meet your representative, who will brief you on your tour itinerary. Day 2 will include the chance to see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as the Great Sphinx.

The next day you will catch a flight down to Aswan, where you will be transported to the 5-star cruise ship on which you will sleep for the next three nights. The luxury boat will sail down the Nile past fertile lands, ancient temples and mystical sites. You will enjoy a number of guided tours in the area, including tours of the Temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo, the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon.  After travelling to Hurghada, you will have a full free day in this beautiful Red Sea resort - there are plenty of activities on offer, including snorkelling and scuba diving, or you can opt to simply relax on the beach or by the pool.

Day 4

Aswan and Nile Cruise

Early this morning you will be transferred to the airport for a short internal flight down to Aswan. Upon arrival you will be transferred to our 5-star Nile cruise ship. After some time to freshen up we’ll begin our Nile quest by visiting the High Dam of Aswan, where your guide will explain to you how the construction of the dam and subsequent creation of Lake Nasser required the relocation of the Nubian people and several important historical monuments, including Abu Simbel, which you have the opportunity to visit tomorrow. We’ll then take a short boat ride to Agilkia Island to explore the Temple of Isis at Philae. Built during the Ptolemaic Kingdom (305 BC to 30 BC), the temple is dedicated to Isis, one of the oldest goddesses of ancient Egypt and worshipped as the
paragon of motherly virtues. It is believed that the last Egyptian hieroglyph was written on the island of Philae in the late fourth century.

Day 5

Nile Cruise (Kom-Ombo and Edfu)

This morning you will have the opportunity to join our optional excursion to the temples of Abu Simbel, two massive temples in southern Egypt. Part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the “Nubian Monuments”, these iconic temples were carved out of the mountainside in the 13th century BC, during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II.

The tour then continues with a visit to the Temple of Kom-Ombo, a unique ‘double’ temple dedicated to both the crocodile god Sobek, and the falcon god Haroeris (Horus). After some time to explore the temple, we’ll head to Edfu. Also dedicated to Horus, this temple is more than 2,000 years old but was covered by sand until it was re-discovered by a French expedition in 1798. Because it was hidden for so long it is the most well preserved temple in Egypt. We’ll then continue on to Luxor, where we’ll spend the night onboard the 5-star cruise ship.
