NILE TRIP IN A NUTSHELL
A Nile cruise is a great way to discover the main sites of Egypt, Luxor’s West Bank offers such delights
as The Valley of The Kings, Valley of The Queens, the Temple of Hatshepsut and
Medinet Habu Temple. On the East Bank you can explore the Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple.
Be impressed by Kom Ombo which stands at the bend of the river before sailing onto
Aswan to see the Temples of Philae and the Aswan High Dam. Cairo, the bustling capital,
is home to the fascinating Egyptian Museum, the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx.
You may not see the ocean on a Nile Cruise but the sights and sounds of the river more than compensate. With a perfect mix of scheduled sightseeing and leisure time you will be able to sit back and relax as you pass by varied scenery from lush green banks to stunning desert landscapes. This magnificent river takes you by towns and temples whilst giving you an insight into daily life as you see children playing and fishermen working. Watch the colour of the water change as the day moves into night.
EXTEND YOUR TRIP
For the adventurous types why not see the ancient city from a different perspective and take an exhilarating trip in a
hot air balloon, if you can leave at sunrise then you will get to see Luxor’s temples in the
beautiful morning light. Book to see the spectacular light and music show at the Temple of
Karnak and be wowed by the enormous Abu Simbel temples located on the Egypt’s border with
Sudan if your itinerary allows.
