Summary

Nile cruises recall a more civilised age of travel, when the holiday journey was as much a source of pleasure as the destination. Our superb 7-night Nile river cruise takes its cue from these holidays of yesteryear, presenting the wonders of the ancient Egyptians to present-day Egypt. Its monumental temples and tombs, its bustling cities and a captivating riverside way of life little changed in centuries - as the ship makes its leisurely way from Luxor to Aswan and back. A journey along the Nile is truly a journey to the heart of exotic Egypt. Your cruise will be aboard the MS Nile Plaza - a small ship that carries a maximum of 110 passengers, with 55 cabins, a restaurant, bar and sundeck.

    Day 2 - Luxor - Edfu

    At the ‘open-air museum’ of Luxor the number and preservation of ancient monuments is unparalleled anywhere in the world. This is the site of the famous city of Thebes, capital of Egypt at the height of the empire’s influence.

    We head out to explore the West Bank, beginning at the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings, where pharaohs were buried from the 16th-11th centuries BC. Our guide will introduce a few of the most impressive tombs and you may also choose to enter the plainer, ‘cursed’ Tomb of Tutankhamun (extra charge). We also visit the Valley of the Queens, the impressive mortuary temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon, before returning to the ship. We sail to Edfu.

A temple dedicated to the falcon-headed Horus, Egyptian god of the sky, hunting and war; and crocodile god Sobek, the god of the Nile, creator of the world, and worshipped for his strength and fertility.
