Nile River, Egypt

Nile Cruises

With so much focus on the Nile, a cruise offers the perfect platform from which to access many of the country’s greatest archaeological treasures and sights.

There are many boats to choose from, however, we only work with a handful of the smaller vessels and know each of them personally and can advise which would best suit your holiday depending on the type of experience you are looking for.

The Nile Experience

The Nile enabled one of the greatest civilizations to grow and flourish. The Pharaohs’ spectacular architectural legacy has captured the imagination of travellers for generations and there remains no better introduction than a river journey on The Nile.

Cruises between Luxor and Aswan can take between three and seven nights and you can choose between a boat offering the ultimate in comfort and luxury onboard The Oberoi Zahra through to a more traditional Nile experience, onboard a dahabiya which relies on the river’s currents and the gentle breeze.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.
