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.

Why you Should take a cruise on the Nile

  • Taking a Nile cruise is the best introduction to this fascinating country
  • Explore some of The Pharaohs spectacular architectural legacy from the comfort of a luxury boat
  • Visit remote archaeological treasures not so easily accessed by road
  • Experience life on the on the Nile and what this mighty river means to the local people

A little more about The Nile

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 3 and 7 nights and you can chose 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.

When to go on a Nile Cruise

With most destinations in Egypt, the weather really does determine the best time of year to visit because the summer gets very, very hot. Therefore, we would advise taking a Nile Cruise during the cooler months between September and March.
