Cairo with Jewels of the Nile Cruise

Total 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.

Depart London Heathrow with the scheduled flight service of Egypt Air. Arrive in Cairo and transfer to Mena House Oberoi hotel - Cairo for a three night stay.

"First impressions when we saw the gulet was 'wow!' The crew were so welcoming and the cabin beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect, the food was plentiful and delicious. The gulet was spacious and comfortable and sleeping on deck under the stars and watching the sunrise is something really special. Thank you, thank you. An unforgettable holiday that was so, so special..."  Mr & Mrs Guy

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
