Egypt Nile River Cruises

Glide along the River Nile and experience all of the wonder, mystery and beauty of Egypt's temples, tombs and monuments.

A Nile cruise enables you to visit all of the major sites and monuments that Egypt has to offer. Highlights include the Karnak Temple with its famous Hypostyle Hall, the Valley of the Kings where the boy King Tutankhamun was buried, Kom Ombo with its double Temple dedicated to Sobek and Haroeris and the Temple of Isis on the beautiful island of Philae. The lush green banks and the beautiful sunsets over the Nile, together with excellent on board facilities make this an unforgettable way to travel. The Nile is the life blood of Egypt, at the heart of this ancient and modern land and should be visited at least once in a lifetime.

We choose the best five-star river cruise ships in their category, which represent great value for money. The star ratings are awarded by the Egyptian Hotel

The new Long Cruise between Cairo and Aswan offers a superb amount of cruising time as well as visiting the main archaeological sites in Middle Egypt.

Egypt's Red Sea coast runs from the Gulf of Suez to the Sudanese border. Its mineral-rich red mountain ranges inspired the mariners of antiquity to name the sea Mare Rostrum, or the Red Sea. Today the area is better known for some of the best diving resorts in the world and a whole host of stylish and cosmopolitan resorts.

No trip to Egypt is complete without visiting Cairo situated along the banks of the River Nile. Cairo is home to the Great Pyramids of Giza on the edge of the city, the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities with the fascinating treasures of Tutankhamun, and numerous ancient temples and monuments.

The site of the former capital City of Thebes, now Luxor, has been called the “World’s Greatest Open Air Museum” with fabulous sites and attractions at every turn including Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple and the Avenue of Sphinxes linking the two. A journey to the West bank reveals the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. 

We also offer cruises on Lake Nasser where you can discover remote historical sites and the stunning temples at Abu Simbel.
