Nile Cruises – Luxor & Aswan
One of the most pleasant ways to enjoy the Nile is to travel by boat. All of the Nile cruises either start or finish in Luxor, giving you the opportunity to spend some time in this lovely city and vist some of the many museums and temples not included in a cruise.
Luxor, Once an Ancient Egyptian capital known today as the world's greatest open-air museum. Home to the tomb of Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings and the magnificent sunset views at the majestic temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor, or experience the beauty of the Pharaoh Temples illuminated against the darkness of night,
Aswan is a serene Nile Valley destination where the Nile is more majestic than anywhere else, flowing through granite rocks, and round emerald islands covered in palm groves and tropical plants. Egypt's sunniest southern city is the perfect destination to stroll and relax in a magical cultural setting: wander down the corniche to watch feluccas slowly sailing the Nile, you'll be surprised to see how many monuments and sites this small city has to offer. Consider sailing to the temple of Philae, seeing the Agha Khan Mausoleum and taking an excursion to St. Simeon Monastery.
