Full Itinerary

(Including 10 Free Excursions)

Day 1: The adventure starts here

Fly direct from the UK to Luxor, the starting point for your Nile cruise. On arrival, transfer from the airport to your cruise ship. Luxor is the site of the ancient Egyptian capital, Thebes, and home to many of the most renowned monuments, tombs and temples.

Day 2: Western Thebes

Breakfast on board before travelling to the West Bank of Thebes and the final resting place of a succession of mighty Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings, littered with intricate tombs – beautifully coloured and decorated with hieroglyphics A visit to the tomb of Tutankhamun is a popular optional excursion, but please note that the surviving treasures now reside in the Cairo Museum. On the West Bank discover the Temple of Hatshepsut, one Egypt’s few female Pharaohs, and the gigantic statues of the Colossi of Memmon, two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, which have stood in the Theban necropolis for the last 3,400 years.

Day 3: Luxor

After breakfast visit the East bank of Thebes and the staggering Temple of Luxor and Temple of Karnak. The Luxor Temple was erected by Amenophis III for Mut, the vulture-headed wife of the God Amun and was added to throughout the centuries by Tutankhamun, Ramses II and a host of Christians, Romans and Muslims. At the vast open air museum of Karnak, translated as “the Most Selected of Places” and the main place of worship of the eighteenth dynasty of the Theban Horus in Edfu temple Triad that had Amun as its head, you can marvel at the Great Hypostyle Hall with its 134 columns. In the afternoon, sail to Edfu via Esna lock.

Day 4: Edfu/Kom Ombo

During this day’s sailing you’ll have the opportunity to visit Edfu, home to the wonderfully preserved 2000+ year old Temple of Horus, the falcon-headed God of the Sun and Plants. Lunch on board as we continue towards Aswan and its mighty dam via the impressive sight of Kom Ombo standing sentinel on a headland at a bend in the river. The unique double temple, was built in 250BC to honour the crocodile-headed god Sobek and the falcon-headed Horus.

Day 5: Aswan

This morning is spent visiting the island of Agilika and Philae Temple, dedicated to Isis. The temple, comprising 40,000 blocks and weighing about 20,000 tonnes was moved to the island between 1972 and 1980 to save it from being flooded by the new lake formed following completion of the Aswan High Dam. Giving a rare viewof how the ancients built their mighty monuments, visit the Unfinished Obelisk, a giant stone column abandoned in its quarry. After lunch, enjoy a felucca ride (traditional Egyptian sailing boat) along the Nile before returning for dinner.

Day 6: Aswan & surrounding area

Make the most of the onboard facilities as you sail to the Aswan area. Alternatively, you can take time out for one of the optional excursions, such as an early morning trip to Abu Simbel* (by air or by bus) to see the great sun temple with its four gigantic statues of Ramses II hewn into the desert mountainside. Another option is to take a day trip to an Aswan Nubian Village and National Park*. During the evening you take an optional excursion to experience the atmospheric Sound and Light show* in the Philae Temple.

Day 7: Cruise to Luxor

A leisurely morning of sailing to Luxor via Esna (please note the cruise ship does not stop here). Make the most of your last full day on the ship as you relax and enjoy all the amenities on offer and soak up the scenery.
