Classic Nile Cruise


Tour description

Cutting through the barren, lifeless desert, and through lush farmland, the River Nile flows past some of Egypt's most spectacular and well preserved ancient temples and tombs. This tour uses one of Egypt's famous luxury Nile Cruise boats (5-star deluxe level) and sails up and down this great river between Luxor and Aswan, allowing you to experience the wonders of ancient Egypt as you go, and enjoy all the comfort and luxury that modern Egypt has to offer.

Deluxe cruise boat on the Nile, EgyptNote: We run this tour with one of our own Egyptologist guides accompanying you on the boat. All the sightseeing tours are done with our own transport and guide - you will not be joining one of the large boat groups for these tours.

You start your cruise in Luxor with a visit to the temples of Luxor and Karnak on the East bank of the Nile. You also have some time to explore the town and bazaars of Luxor itself, and stroll up and down the banks of the river.

Surrounded by the sumptuous surroundings of the cruise boat you slowly make your way up river. You can relax by the pool and watch the world go by during the day, and dine and enjoy traditional Egyptian entertainment by night. En route south to the beautiful town of Aswan you will stop to tour the ancient temples of Esna and Edfu.

Temple to Ramses II at Abu Simbel, EgyptAswan is situated on the banks of the cascading waters of the Nile, just below Lake Nasser. Here you can relax and watch myriad feluccas sail lazily around the many small islands or experience traditional Egyptian life with a stroll along the mazy streets of the town’s colourful bazaar. We take you on a visit to the island temple of Philae and you have the option of a flight or drive out to Abu Simbel, with its remarkable temple to Ramses II, before continuing your cruise back down the Nile towards Luxor, stopping to tour Komombo temple en-route.
