Full description

Explore the Nile on this 4-day cruise from Aswan. See the historic town of Luxor, marvel at the temple of Kom Ombo, and discover Philae Island.

Day 1 Meet your Egyptologist guide at your Aswan hotel and begin your adventure with a visit to the Aswan High Dam. Next, hop on a motor boat to get to Philae Island. After a tour of the island and a visit to the temple, board your 5-star cruise.

Snap some photos of both sides of the Nile and hear about the cultures of the Nubians and the ancient Egyptians. Drink your tea on the sun deck while you enjoy the scenery. Spend the night on your cruise ship. Day 2 Enjoy breakfast on the ship before having free time to explore Aswan. Next, sail north before stopping at Komombo to visit the Temple of Kom Ombo. Hop back on your cruise ship to continue toward Edfu.

Relax on a horse-drawn carriage ride to Edfu Temple dedicated to the god Horus. After exploring the temple, board the cruise and spend the night sailing north. Day 3 Listen as your guide explains the history of the Valley of the Kings in detail. Afterward, disembark and drive to discover the secrets of Queen Hatshepsut during a visit to her temple.

Discover the West Bank and visit the Howard Carter House, where the man who discovered the tomb of King Tut once lived. Day 4 After breakfast, head off to visit the biggest temple in the world, Karnak Temple. Drive over to see the small, beautiful temple of Luxor. Finish your tour in Luxor.

Our cruise was postponed a day due to a previous cruise being delayed with Covid but the company was very quick to provide options for us and organise our delayed trip with no additional expenses incurred by us. The boat was 5 star and our cabin was roomy and comfortable. The itinerary travelled could have been a bit more relaxed and some of the sights visited with more leisure time but it was none-the-less an interesting and relaxing trip all up. Our guide was a qualified Egyptologist and very knowledgeable. The food was very good and there were always plenty of options available.

Cruising is a very good idea for those to want quite and sightseeing through Egyptian temples between Aswan and Luxor. The cruise "La terrase" is OK, the room is fine and very clean however it's a little bit noisy at night due to enginees. The food is OK. The desk is nice with shadow areas and also with deck chairs for sunbathing, however the swimming Pool is small and the colour of the water does not look clean. Our guide, Bee, is a very knowledge guy and very helpful within the communication to egyptian people. Cruising is very recommandable, the cruise "la Terrace" Can be improved and the guide Bee very recommandble.

Our guide Ramzy was very knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about Egyptian history with him. He was always there for us and made sure that we didn’t have any problems. I would totally recommend him to our family and friends. Just be aware that you have to do a lot of tipping, it seems is the way it works here. But apart from that the quality of the tour is excellent.
