Why we like Sun Boat IV
The Sunboat IV is one of the few boats on the Nile to visit the Dendarah Temple on a four-night itinerary. This much less visited temple is known as the Temple of Hathor and is located to the north of Luxor
Cruise between Luxor and Aswan in either direction, over four or eight-night itineraries. Starting and ending in either Luxor or Aswan with exclusive docking at Luxor or Aswan.
There is an upper sun deck with a heating swimming pool to 28 degrees, as well as a shaded deck area and a lounge bar. The boat also boasts a library, games room, gymnasium and a massage room. Dining options cater to all tastes and service on the boat is extremely personal. This boat is family-friendly and has an award-winning chef on board.
The focus of any Nile cruise is, of course, the wealth of ancient sites to visit on the banks of the Nile. Sightseeing is done in small groups and the Egyptologists on board are known for their enthusiasm and knowledge.

Our guide in Cairo was obviously one of the best and did wonders for our knowledge of the ancient history of Egypt.
The choice of accommodation was absolutely excellent throughout! Mohamed Saad, our guide from Luxor onwards, was outstanding and should be recommended strongly. We also hired an ornithological expert ( Shaban ) for a morning - excellent.
Thank you so much for assisting us with all of the planning. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to Egypt again. There is so much to see there.
