Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Hurghada on the first day and transfer in a private air-conditioned car to Luxor. Upon arrival, visit the great Karnak Temple with your professional guide, then drive over to the beautiful Luxor Temple. After your Luxor tour, check in to the cruise and get some rest. At night, discover Luxor's old market before an overnight cruise. On Day 2, be ready early in the morning for a fabulous tour of the West Bank. Get there by motorboat, then drive to the Valley of the Kings. Continue to the famous Queen Hatshepsut Temple and take the opportunity to visit Howard Carter House, where the Englishman who discovered Tutankhamun's treasures lived. Return to the cruise and start sailing. Enjoy the views of Luxor's islands and local culture as you go, before passing Esna Lock and arriving in Edfu for the night. Early on the third day, visit Edfu Temple by horse and carriage. Upon return to the boat, savor a drink on the sundeck as you cruise all the way to the town of Kom Ombo. Reach Kom Ombo around sunset and discover Kom Ombo Temple before spending the night on the boat. At around 5 AM on Day 4, it's time to visit some of the most important temples in the whole world: the Abu Simbel Temples, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Nubian Monuments. Get some rest after your tour before exploring Aswan's old market at night. On the last day, head down the Nile to take an Egyptian motorboat to Philae Island Temple.

Pleasant cruise. Good meals. Good tours offered. The visit to the last temple is far (3 hours by road to go and 3 hours by road to return) for a fairly quick visit to the temple... it's a shame to do all these kilometers for so little time spent on the place.

In reality we'd like to give 5 stars for the beautiful boat: the room was very pretty and clean, the food was very very good and the crew was very kind and smiling ... everything was fantastic. We'd like to give 10 stars to MONA, she was our guide just in Luxor, she is the best guide we ever had, thank you Mona !!!!! We gave 4 stars in total because of the experience with the cruise guide, very shorts explications so big free time to visit alone .. we had to search the monuments' informations in internet.

We took a 4 night cruise with Blue Shadow cruise boat from Luxor to Aswan. We were amazed by incredible sceenery seen from the boat and unique historical sites along the route. It is the best way to explore southern Egypt. Our guide Ahmed made sure we had an unforgettable experience. Visits to all sites were well organized by transport from the boat. We didn't wait anywhere in line to enter any site, which was a delight. All meals were included in this trip and food on the boat was very good with good variaty each day. We would highly recommend Nile cruise to anyone visiting Egypt.
