Nile cruise itineraries Nile cruise boats Nile cruise and beyond Nile cruise holidays - the Temple of Philae at Aswan

The Nile Cruise, evoking memories of a travel mode from a bygone era, is the ideal way by which to see Upper Egypt. For little more than the cost of a hotel stay in Luxor, you can spend a week sailing from Luxor to Aswan and back, taking in the amazing antiquities that line this short stretch of the river.

What to do on a Nile cruise

Most Nile cruises are a week in duration, sailing from Luxor to Aswan and back again, but a shorter cruise of three or four nights is also possible. In the company of an Egyptologist, you will be escorted around the sights of Luxor and Aswan and other towns along the River Nile, taking in renowned ancient sites such as Karnak, the Valley of the Kings, Edfu, Esna and Kom Ombo. Each itinerary differs slightly.

Where to stay on a Nile cruise

Your Nile cruise boat is your floating hotel during your visit, and most offer comfortable standards and facilities such as a small pool, restaurant and bar. Not only can you be assured of seeing all of the main sights, you will not have to bother finding places to eat as the meal plan is full board - only your drinks will be extra!

Nile cruise holiday ideas

Spend a week cruising the Nile, and then return home or follow this with a week in Luxor, Hurghada or El Gouna. Alternatively, combine a Nile cruise with Cairo or Aswan. Check out our multi centre holiday options for more ideas.
