Egypt Land Tours and Red Sea Tours


Nile River Cruises and Egypt Land Tours Holidays in Egypt

We offer different holidays combining a Nile River cruise with visits to the main sights of Egypt. We offer many cruise and stay options, of lengths from 8 to 17 days. Itineraries can include Red Sea Diving Holidays, Red Sea Liveaboard Safari, Western Desert Oasis Safari, Cairo and the Pyramids, or extensions to Abu Simbel by lake Nasser Nile River cruise ship or air.

Visits to Cairo are usually based on Giza to the south east of the city, where you find the Pyramids and the Sphinx and be amazed by their size. The fascinating Egyptian Museum includes the burial treasures of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. In the evening is a Sound and Light Show in the shadow of the Sphinx.

From Cairo fly to Luxor or Aswan to join your Nile River cruise ship - alternatively start your holiday by direct flight to Luxor. From Luxor some cruises go north to Dendera, for a visit to the temple of the God Hathor, then sail back to Luxor.

From Luxor visit the Valley of the Kings, with its hundreds of tombs, most famously that of Tutankhamun. See also the Valley of the Queens, Deir El Bahri, the mortuary temple of Queen Hatsheput and the Colossi of Memnon. Cruises also offer visits to the temple complexes of Luxor and Karnak, both noted architectural sights.

Your cruise ship sails via the river lock at Esna to Edfu. The temple of Edfu, dedicated to the falcon-headed God Horus, is one of the best preserved in Egypt. Further down the River Nile is the famous Kom Ombo temple dedicated to the crocodile God Sobek, with its mummified crocodiles.

Aswan is a colorful city, noted for its markets. Visit the Aswan High Dam, and the temple of Philae, which was dismantled and rebuilt to avoid being submerged under the Dam's rising waters. Kitcheners Island is a beautiful botanic garden with many exotic plants and trees.

From Aswan there are excursions by air to the temples of Abu Simbel. This massive ancient site was moved from its original position and rebuilt to avoid being submerged by the rising waters of the new Lake Nasser. The people in the picture (bottom right) indicate its huge size.

It is also possible to cruise from Aswan to Abu Simbel and see marvelous desert landscapes, particularly sunrises and sunsets. This allows visits to temples and sights only accessible by water, on the shores of Lake Nasser. There are virtually no towns or villages, or mooring sites, so small boats are used for transport ashore. Excursions include Wadi El Seboua and the temple of Ramsis II, Kasr Ibrim and the relocated temple of Amada.
