Cruising the Nile is a superb way to visit Egypt as many of ancient Egypt's most significant sites are located along the banks of the river. A traditional 7 night cruise will include all the major sites from Luxor to Aswan and back. There is no better way to appreciate the great monuments, temples and ancient cities that line the banks of the Nile: the Valley of the Kings, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Philae Island, Luxor Temple and the Temple at Karnak are unmissable highlights.
Surrounded by remote desert which covers the land of Nubia, Lake Nasser is the site of many tombs, temples and churches. Lake Nasser Cruises are a unique way to see these historical sites and the itinerary includes a trip to Abu Simbel.
A comprehensive programme of excursions is central to your cruise experience and our qualified Egyptologist will bring the history of the Pharaohs to life for you. Nile Cruises are also a unique opportunity to view rural life in the Nile Valley with farmers tending their crops and irrigating their fields in the traditional ways of their ancestors as you pass by.
