Nile Cruise in Egypt

Enjoy a classic journey along the River Nile in Egypt on board a cruise boat. Sailing between Luxor and Aswan, the two most iconic cities of Upper Egypt, you will stop en route to explore the Temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo.  The Temple of Edfu dates back to the Ptolemaic dynasty and is one of the best preserved temples in the whole of Egypt, while the Temple of Kom Ombo is one of the most magnificent, situated in a glorious location next to the River Nile. 

Between sightseeing stops you can spend your time absorbing the timeless beauty of the Nile Valley itself: elegant feluccas sail from bank to bank while fishermen cast their nets from simple wooden boats; riverside farms and villages lie surrounded by intensely cultivated fields and groves of date palms, and beyond them you can see the desert dunes. It is simply fascinating.

Country Information

At the end of a busy day’s sightseeing you’ll feel as though you are entering a haven of peace and comfort. You can relax on the top deck or perhaps take a dip in the pool, read a book and chat with your fellow passengers. At dusk enjoy a long, cool drink while you watch the river glide by and the colours change as the sun slowly sets over the Nile. Sit back and relax as the professional and friendly crew welcome you aboard. Cruise boats vary in size from the smaller vessels with 50 or 60 cabins to the larger ships with more than 200 cabins. Nearly all boats now have en-suite cabins and air-conditioning throughout. Cabins vary in size but many have a picture window with fantastic views over the Nile. Cabins are often equipped with fridges, satellite televisions, telephones and hair-driers, while bathrooms are fitted with bathtubs as well as showers. On board there will be a bar and entertainment area, a restaurant, some have shops and most if not all have a top deck from where you can enjoy a swimming pool and panoramic views over the River Nile.
