To make the most of your time in Egypt, you can combine a cruise on the Nile with a hotel stay. A popular itinerary is a Classical Tour where you spend 3 nights in Cairo visiting the fascinating Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza as well as the ancient city of Memphis and the fabulous treasures of the Egyptian Museum. You will then fly to Luxor to board one of our Nile cruisers for a 7 night cruise. We can also arrange a hotel stay in Luxor once your cruise finishes.
You can also twin your 7 night cruise or short cruise with a stay in the Red Sea in Hurghada, El Gouna or the quieter resorts of Makadi Bay and Soma Bay. The resorts are great for a holiday extension enabling you to relax and enjoy a range of superb beaches, water sports, diving and snorkelling. Another popular area is Sharm El Sheikh on the Sinai peninsular.
We can recommend a number of hotels including the Mena House Hotel and Meridien Pyramids Hotel in Cairo, the Sonesta St George and Maritim Jolie Ville in Luxor, the Kempinski Hotel in Soma Bay and Fort Arabesque in Makadi Bay. These have been personally inspected by Orbital and hand picked for their locations, quality accommodation, value for money and service.
