Discover ancient temples and tombs and travel by Nile cruise boat

Man relaxing by the Nile

Egypt has an enthralling history and a wealth of well-preserved monuments and treasures. Cruising the Nile allows you to visit all the sites and attractions in a comfortable fashion: from the last remaining wonder of the ancient world, the Great Pyramids at Giza, to the vibrant Nubian culture at Aswan, we incorporate all the significant places of interest. We board our cruise boat at Luxor and, travelling upstream, we watch traditional life pass by, visiting the spectacular Edfu and Kom Ombo temples along the way. The lush green banks and the beautiful sunsets over the Nile, together with the good onboard facilities (which can be enjoyed during sailing and when moored) make this the only way to travel.
