Nile River Cruises


Visit stunning and well-preserved temples, tombs and monuments on a Nile cruise.

A Nile cruise enables you to visit all the major historic sites and monument along the Nile in comfortable surroundings, visiting spectacular temples along the way. Highlights include 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 the 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.

3 & 4 Night Nile Cruise

These short three and four night Nile cruises are a superb way to discover the main sites of Upper Egypt whilst spending time relaxing on board a 5* Nile cruiser.  They can be easily combined with a stay in Cairo and Luxor. All included excursions are guided by a qualified Egyptologist. Four night cruises depart from Luxor on Mondays and three night cruises from Aswan on Fridays throughout the year.

Classic 7 Night Cruise - Luxor/Aswan/Luxor

The most popular cruise is 7 nights on board one of our 5* Nile cruisers.

Lake Nasser Cruises

Lake Nasser is the world’s largest artificial lake and is the site of many ancient tombs, temples and churches. Before the Aswan High Dam was constructed monuments were moved from their original sites and grouped together at four locations Kalabsha, Wadi-as-Subua, Amada and Abu Simbel. A cruise on Lake Nasser gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy serene desert vistas and to explore the ancient Nubian temples and monuments.
