Egypt - Cruising the Nile - Cairo to Aswan


In the Wake of the Pharaohs

This leisurely cruise is perfect for those who are looking for an in-depth exploration of the sights that line the River Nile. You’ll glide along a distance of approximately 600 miles between Cairo and Aswan, on a journey that includes a stretch of the river that has only been reopened for a few years. Travelling by way of water, we can take you to a range of little-known and rarely visited sites that most tourists to this part of the world typically miss. Along with a ride aboard a traditional felucca, there will be tours of Egypt’s most iconic sites as well as some surprises that are bound to inspire awe.
