Nile Cruise

A Nile Cruise is a fabulous way to enjoy the historical and rural sites of Egypt. Gently motoring along the age-old waters of this great river is a truly inspiring and meditative experience, and there are some superb cruise options offering a high standard of accommodation and catering.
The best of the historical sites between Luxor and Aswan are close to the River Nile, so it makes brilliant sense to travel along the river rather than by dusty desert road. Travelling this way also offers far superior scenery and an insight into local daily life on the banks of the river.  

Many cruise boats ply this route, stopping at Edfu and Kom Ombo on the way.  The best of these is Sanctuary Sun Boat III, with just a few beautifully decorated and comfortable cabins, fabulous food and your own personal Egyptologists on board who will guide you through the various sites. Chandeliers and hand-woven rugs set an elegant yet unostentatious tone, and loungers and a plunge pool on the top deck provide the perfect environment in which to relax while serenely watching the scenery pass by.  

Each cruise makes its way between Aswan and Luxor (in each direction) over seven days, although shorter cruises of three or four nights are also available in May, June and July.
