⛴ Nile Cruise: On your first morning you will visit the Luxor Museum, home to many magnificent remains from the Pharaonic period, including pieces from the tomb of Tutankhamun’s tomb. In the afternoon, visit the majestic Temple of Karnak, the largest ancient religious site in the world, and the well preserved Temple of Luxor on the East Bank. You will then overnight in Luxor for the second night.

On the second morning you will visit the awe-inspiring highlights of the West Bank. These include the Valley of the Kings, burial place of ancient Kings and Nobles and one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites; the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. In the afternoon you’ll sail via Esna Lock to Edfu where you will overnight.

On the third morning you’ll visit the Temple of Horus in Edfu, built of golden sandstone blocks and one of Egypt’s best preserved temples. Continue along the majestic Nile to Kom Ombo, where you will visit the fascinating Temple of Sobek and Haroeris in the afternoon, before continuing on to Aswan where you will overnight.

After breakfast on the fourth morning you’ll spend the day exploring the sights of Aswan. Start with a visit to the High Dam and the Temple of Philae, painstakingly relocated after the building of the Dam to the island of Agilkia. In the afternoon, take a relaxing trip on a felucca past the Agha Khan Mausoleum and Elephantine Island. You’ll then overnight again in Aswan.

You’ll spend your 5th morning at leisure in Aswan, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere. There is also the option of a trip to breath-taking Abu Simbel (at additional cost). In the afternoon you’ll sail from Aswan to Edfu where you’ll overnight.

On the 6th morning you’ll sail from Edfu to the modern city of Esna. Visit the Temple of Khnum at Esna before crossing the lock and continuing on to Luxor in the afternoon. You’ll then overnight in Luxor for your final night of the cruise.

🚗 Luxor – Beach: After breakfast on the 7th day you’ll disembark your cruise boat, and we’ll transfer you to your hotel in Hurghada, El Gouna or Makadi Bay for a further 7 nights. Sharm el Sheik is also an option but would require a further flight which may increase the cost.
