Summary

This fantastic twin centre holiday gives you the opportunity to enjoy the best that Egypt has to offer by both land and water. Your time on this iconic river will live with you even after your holiday is over. Your all-inclusive 5-star stay in Hurghada is followed by an all-inclusive 7-night cruise.

Day 1

From Luxor International Airport you’ll be transferred to your 5* cruise vessel. In Luxor, you’ll enjoy dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2

An early breakfast will be served before a visit to the West Bank to enjoy one of Egypt’s most spectacular views. The modern and ancient worlds collide before the Valley of Kings, once known as the ‘Gates of the Gods’, with the pharaohs of Egypt entombed in the cliffs close by. You’ll also see the Valley of Queens, originally known as the ‘Place of Beauty’ before its name was changed to the ‘Gates of the Harem’. Almost 80 tombs are to be found here, including the stunning tomb of Ramses II’s favourite wife, Queen Nefertari and the Temple of Hatshepsut. The terraces of the latter seem as one with the limestone cliffs of the area. Lunch will be served on board, before a relaxing sail to Esna where there will be dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 3

After breakfast you’ll take the short coach journey to Edfu, where the incredible Temple of Horus can be seen. It was only discovered and reclaimed from the sands in the mid-19th century and is the best preserved pharaonic temple known in Egypt today. According to the myth, Horus defeated his uncle, Seth, after Seth had murdered Horus’s father, Osiris. At lunchtime, you’ll sail to Kom Ombo for a visit to its unusual double temple. It was built in honour of both Sobek, the Egyptian crocodile god, and Haroeris, known as ‘the good doctor’. The temple will leave you spellbound with its history. In the evening, dinner will be served and the cruise will continue on to Aswan.

Day 4

After breakfast you’ll visit Aswan’s High Dam, which took over a decade to build from 1960-1971. This spectacular feat of engineering provides electricity for the villages of the Nile’s banks. As the tour progresses you’ll also see the Unfinished Obelisk, which Queen Hatshepsut commissioned for the Temple of Karnak. The tour ends on Philae Island, giving you the chance to experience the wonder of the Temple of Isis. After lunch, you can unwind with a pleasant boat trip sailing around Elephantine Island to General Kitchener Island’s Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are stocked with an enchanting collection of plants and flowers from across the globe. In the afternoon, you have the option of joining a tour to the Nubian village or you may prefer to simply kick back and relax on board. After your meal in the evening, there will be a performance from the nubian folk show.

Day 5

You may opt to join the early morning trip to the massive rock temples of Abu Simbel by air/road (£180 per person by air or £65 per person by road). Situated by Lake Nasser, Ramses II had these awe-inspiring constructions built as a symbol of his might. If the early start doesn’t appeal to you then you can of course relax on board the ship. After lunch, you’ll sail on to Esna to stay overnight. After dinner, you can really capture the North African spirit by donning a traditional Galabiya and taking part in the Galabiya party.

Day 6

After breakfast you’ll visit Esna’s Temple of Khnum, built to honour Khnum, the god of the evening sun, rebirth and creation. According to the Ancient Egyptian creation story, humanity was created by Khnum using a potter’s wheel and clay from the Nile. The temple’s fascinating decor includes ceilings covered in astronomical details. Lunch will be served during the afternoon’s sail back to Luxor. At Luxor, dinner will be served and the cruise will remain overnight.

Day 7

After breakfast you can take a tour of the East Bank, which will include a visit to the Temple of Luxor. In ancient times, this would have been linked to Karnak by a road lined with sphinxes, a large number of which you can still see. The trip continues on to Karnak itself, which has been called the ‘World’s Greatest Open Air Museum’. There are a number of temples at Karnak, with the spectacular Temple of Amun being the largest of these. There will be lunch and leisure time, giving an opportunity to take in the exhibits at Luxor Museum. Luxor will be the setting for dinner and an overnight stay, with the option of attending the Karnak Sound and Light show (£22 per person).

Day 8-15

After breakfast you’ll check out and be transferred to Hurghada for the remaining duration of your holiday.

Please note that aspects of this itinerary (such as the order or content) are subject to possible change due to closure of locks, changing water levels or any other circumstances which cannot be foreseen. Also, please bear in mind that there are a large number of cruise ships on the Nile, so during our time docked in Aswan and Luxor it is probable that there will be other boats moored next to yours. There is the possibility, in a small number of cases, of a change of vessel being necessary. In the event of this being the case, the sightseeing itinerary will remain unchanged. It is common practice for a tip of £4 per person per night to be paid, covering waiting staff, engine crew, housekeeping staff, coach drivers and porters. Tipping on top of this is not expected.
