Classical Trips and Nile Cruises

Egyptian history begins about 5000 B.C. with the first Neolithic settlements in the Nile valley and Delta. The rich heritage of temples, tombs and other monuments from the Pharaonic era, between 3000 and 323 B.C., have been attracting visitors for hundreds of years. Even when you plan to spend most of your time in the desert, a trip to the Pyramids of Giza and the treasures of the Egyptian museum is a must. Nile cruises provide a comfortable means for visiting the major temples in Upper Egypt between Luxor and Aswan. Besides, Egypt can boast of numerous Christian churches and monasteries as well as the stations of the Holy Family's visit to Egypt, and of course hundreds of mediaeval Islamic mosques, houses and bazaars.

In combination with cruises or desert adventure trips, or beach holidays, we offer the classical sightseeing program in Cairo and / or Upper Egypt. See the pyramids and sphinx of Giza, the famous treasures of the Egyptian Museum, and the mosques of mediaeval Cairo. Visit the tombs of the pharaohs in Luxor, or the breathtaking rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel!)

Even if you have but a short stop-over in the Land of the Pharaohs, or step ashore on a Mediterranean cruise, you may glimpse some of the splendor that is Egypt!

Exploring the Nile valley on board of one of numerous luxurious cruise ships is utterly enchanting - watch lush landscape, charming villages and ancient monuments gliding by! You can choose to spend three or four nights on board ship, seeing the most beautiful stretch of Egypt between Luxor and Aswan, or even decide on a seven nights’ cruise, going Luxor - Aswan and back.

In general, a classical Nile Cruise is combined with two or three days’ sightseeing in Cairo to view the pyramids and the Egyptian museum, with domestic flights offering a comfortable connection to Upper Egypt. It is also possible to add a few days’ relaxation on the Red Sea beaches in Hurghada, going by bus after disembarkation in Luxor or Aswan. The variations can be made to fit every flight schedule and port of arrival.
