River Nile Cruise Information
The River Nile is the longest river in the world at 4,100 miles in length. Located along the Nile banks are the vacant and rocky deserts and in contrast the exciting cities of Aswan and Luxor, home to some of the oldest and most spectacular historical sites. The Valley of the Kings is a magnificent collection of tombs, Kom Ombo is home to the Temple of Sedek or take an optional excursion to Abu Simbel where you can visit the majestic temples over 3,000 years old.
The River Nile is the life giving source of Egypt and dominates the landscape leaving a lush, green trail as it twists and turns for miles through the desert. A cruise along the Nile is an ideal way to discover the magic of the ancient sites set along this magnificent river.
A River Nile Cruise is truly a unique way to experience the wonders of Egypt as you set sail from Luxor to Aswan visiting the main places of historical interest set along the Nile. The boats we feature on our website are all of a very good standard and include air conditioned, Nile view cabins. The excursions and meals from dinner on the evening you arrive to breakfast on the day you disembark are included and a varied evening entertainment programme is offered on most boats.
During your on board stay you will be accompanied by an Egyptologist and a boat manager. Excursions are generally taken in the early morning or late evening to avoid the midday sun. The full excursion programme can be quite a demanding one.
Due to the number of cruise boats that sail on the Nile there are sometimes delays which normally occur at locks. Your boat may moor alongside other cruise ships which may cause obscured views whilst moored up and engines must be kept running.
