Cairo with Jewels of the Nile Cruise

Cairo with Jewels of the Nile Cruise

 from £1,698 per person

 Duration 7 nights: 3 nights Cairo  & 4 nights Jewels of the Nile cruise

For many people, the highlight of a visit to classical Egypt are the tombs and temples of the Nile and the pyramids of Giza. The combination of a stay in Cairo with a cruise along the Nile is, therefore, the perfect introduction to Egypt - ideal for those who wish to experience as much of the rich history of ancient Egypt as possible. Furthermore, many of the treasures of the Nile Valley are now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The hustle and bustle of Cairo forms an excellent counterpoint to the timeless character of the Nile. We feature two classic options allowing for a 10 night or 7 night holiday, depending on the duration of the Nile cruise.
