Full description
Take a journey from Luxor to Aswan aboard a luxury 5-star boat that includes all meals and guided visits to some of Egypt’s most iconic and well-preserved temples along the Nile River.  Day 1 Start the first day of your multi-day cruise with a hotel pick up from your Luxor accommodation around 7:00 AM. Before boarding your boat, you will go on a guided tour to the iconic Valley of the Kings in Luxor.   Visit and go inside the 3 most important tombs of the ancient kings, seeing the many inscriptions and hieroglyphics that decorate them. Next, be led to the Hatshepsut Temple, which is a beautiful funerary temple of the important queen of Egypt, whose political power changed the state of Egypt at that time. Follow your guide as you continue onwards to explore the city of Habu to witness the Temple of Ramses III, one of the greatest temples of the Twentieth Dynasty. Snap pictures of the impressive Memnon statues and end up at the Karnak Temple, which is the most important and largest in the city of Luxor. After your history-filled tour, you will be taken to board your cruise at around 1:00 PM, in perfect time to enjoy the first meal of your river journey. Once you have settled in, make sure to go up to the roof of the boat to enjoy the enchanting scenery. Watch as the small boats, Egyptian villages, and natural landscapes sail by.  Day 2 After breakfast, take a horse carriage ride to visit Temples of Edfu Horus. Marvel at these well-preserved religious palaces and the imposing sandstone structures of Horus. Return to the boat for lunch, before heading out once again to see the Kom Ombo Temple. Learn about the structures of the temple and why it was built in honor of two great Nile divinities. Day 3 After an early morning check-out from the boat, take your luggage and grab a quick breakfast and before being picked up to visit the Abu Simbel temple. On this small-group tour you will also discover the temples of Ramesses II and Nefertari.

The Nile Cruise is a must-do and we could not have asked for a better overall experience! Our trip was organised by Sheba Travels and all our pick-up/transfers and excursions were co-ordinated by Taghreed. She was prompt and communicative which made for a hassle-free trip. A shout-out to our guides : Ghada at Luxor - who managed to fit in so much as we had less time due to our train arriving late, Mohammed in Kom Ombo - who was excellent and so informative, and Abu in Abu Simbel - who directed us through the temples efficiently so we weren't stuck in a queue for ages! We were disappointed by our guide in Edfu, which we communicated to Taghreed. Our on-board experience too was superb! The cabins were comfortable and we were delighted to be so close to the water! The staff on-board were helpful, the buffet meals were good. Most of all we loved spending time on the sundeck - chilling with a drink by our side, discovering the landscapes of Egypt as we cruised down the beautiful Nile! ❤️

We had a nice experience doing this activity. The program is a bit tiring as there is a lot to see. In the meantime, you can chill very well on the boat blanket. Everyone was very nice and engaging and their priority is always tourist safety. Everything well organized. Thank you Abdul :)

Overall we had a great time. The good: the food was great, the deck was comfortable with a beautiful pool, and the temple tours were so cool. The bad: There wasn’t a great deal of communication before tours; we were What’s App’ed a time the night before and that’s it. One tour was supposed to pick up at 4am but the person didn’t come until 5:30. On the final day, no one told us we could leave our luggage on the boat to explore the city since it wouldn’t be leaving Aswan until the evening. Temple fees not included (though worth the extra $) We are not the type who think *everyone* should speak English around the world but very few people could give us basic info on the boat, which isn’t great if you market to English speaking tourists. Download the translator app and you’ll be fine. If you keep a flexible mindset, you’ll have a great time. I’d still recommend the tour to family and friends.
