Egypt Cruise - In the Wake of the Pharaohs

17 days

From £5,395

Summary

This luxurious 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 410 miles between Cairo and Aswan, on a journey that includes a stretch of the river that has only been reopened for a few years.

Traveling 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.

The August cruise runs in reverse down the River Nile. We spend one night in Cairo before flying to the world-renowned site of Abu Simbel and then onto Aswan for the night. The next day we embark our Nile cruiser for our journey back to Cairo.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore Seti I’s temple at Abydos, considered somewhat off the beaten track yet home to the most beautiful raised reliefs in the entire country
  • Discover remains of the royal cemetery of Egypt’s most intriguing Pharaoh, Akhenaten, and his powerful wife, Nefertiti
  • Visit the Nubian site of the temples at Abu Simbel, rescued from Lake Nasser’s rising waters after the creation of the High Dam
  • Discover the Red and White Coptic Monasteries, built from remnants of Pharaonic temples and boasting awe-inspiring murals
  • Travel through Middle Egypt to explore the rarely visited sites of Beni Hasan and Amarna
