The Nile Explorer

There is nothing more iconic in Egypt than cruising the Nile, Agatha Christie-style, and gazing out at some of the greatest archaeological sites in the world. This is the epitome of slow travel, you'll see the great Pyramids in Cairo before hopping over to Luxor for your water-bound journey along the Nile to Aswan. Why not add a few nights here at the end, relaxing in hotels that were once great Ottoman Palaces or visiting the incredible rock temples of Abu Simbel? Our local Egyptologists are always at hand to bring the ‘Land of the Pharaohs’ alive.
