Highlights of the Nile

This 3 night / 4 day Nile Cruise starts from Aswan and finishes in Luxor.

This is an ideal option for those who want to split their holiday between different destinations and would like to fit in as much sightseeing as possible into a short cruise.

 

1. Friday (Abu Simbel, Aswan & Philae)

Optional excursion to Abu Simbel is from £99 per person. Embarkation before lunch. Visit the High Dam of Aswan, the granite quarries from whence the stone came to build most of the temples and the Unfinished Obelisk. Continue to the island of Philae with its stunning Temple of Isis, dedicated to the mother of all the gods, which would have been submerged when the dam was built, had it not been relocated. Sail on the Nile in a traditional felucca around Elephantine and Kitchener’sIsland. Optional excursion to Sound & Light Show at the Temple of Isis at Philae. Dinner & Overnight.

2. Saturday (Temples of Horus in Edfu & Kom Ombo)

After breakfast, sail to Kom Ombo to visit the temple dedicated to the two gods, Haroeris and Sobek, the crocodile Nile god. This was a place where crocodiles used to bask in the sun, although since the building of the dam they are no longer found on this stretch of the Nile. Lunch on board. Sail to Edfu to visit the Temple of Horus, the falcon God, whose battle with his evil uncle, Seth, is told in vivid pictures inscribed on its walls. Continue on to Luxor. Dinner & Overnight.

3. Sunday (The West Bank, Karnak & Luxor)

Breakfast on board and then visit to the West Bank including the fascinating tombs of the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. You will visit 2 or 3 tombs in each, to view the intricate wall paintings and learn more of the ancient Egyptians’ beliefs concerning the afterlife. The tombs are open according to a system of rotation, to minimise damage caused by visitors, andthere is an additional charge for visits to the Tomb of Tutankhamun and Ramses VI. Continue to the awe-inspiring Temple of Hatshepsut, the resting place of the only female Pharaoh and the Colossi of Memnon, two gigantic statues, which are all that remain of the temple of Amenophis III, once even bigger than Karnak. After lunch visit the Temples of Luxor and Karnak, dedicated to the Theban deities, and linked by an enigmatic Avenue of Sphinxes. Karnak is the largest of the Nile temples and its most impressive, comprising three separate temple enclosures and a Sacred Lake. The Temple of Luxor is very well preserved and all the more dramatic for its location facing the Nile in the centre of the modern city. Optional Excursion to Sound & Light Show at Karnak Temple. Dinner & Overnight.

4. Monday

Breakfast followed by disembarkation.

"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
