Luxor, Egypt

The major tourist town of Luxor, in Upper Egypt, is regarded as a starting point for cruises along the River Nile. Here, you will find the southern half of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes and is home to the Temple of Luxor – which was originally built by Pharaoh Amenophis III and contains colossal statues left by Ramses II. Across the river, on the west bank, you will find the Valley of the Kings – which was the burial place of pharaohs including Tutankhamun.

Day 3
Nile River, Rivers

Measuring a staggering 4,132 miles in length, the Nile River is the longest river in the world and an incredible must-see. Sharing its water sources with no less than 11 countries including Egypt, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and the Sudan the Nile really is an ‘international’ river. Cruising here offers the chance to explore some of the most incredible places south of the Equator. River cruises concentrate on voyages between Luxor, the site of ancient city of Thebes, and the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings.

Day 4
Kom Ombo, Egypt

Situated 30 miles north of the Aswan High Dam is Kom Ombo, which is located on the east bank of the River Nile in Upper Egypt. Here, you will find the ancient Ombos, which is home to a unique double temple of the Ptolemaic and Roman periods. These temples were dedicated to the crocodile god, Sobek, and the falcon-headed god, Horus. Both of these temples are known for housing mummified crocodiles.

Day 4
Aswan, Egypt

The Aswan Dam is a popular winter holiday resort and the starting point for a number of river cruises along the Nile. It was once the southern frontier of Egypt during the era of the pharaohs and today, you can visit the quarries where granite was sourced for Egyptian monuments. Roughly three miles south of Aswan is the old Aswan Dam, which was completed in 1902, and a further four miles away is the Aswan High Dam – completed in 1970. This dam is vital with regards to the water supply of north-east Africa, as it contains the Lake Nasser reservoir – the second largest man-made lake in the world.

Day 6
Edfu, Egypt

Also known as Idfu, the town of Edfu is situated on the west bank of the Nile River, in Egypt, and is an ideal point from which to embark on a river cruise. Within the town, you will find the remains of the Temple of Horus, a 138-metre-long and 76-metre-wide sandstone structure – arguably considered to be one of Egypt’s largest and best preserved temples. Construction was started by Ptolemy III Euergetes, in 237 BC, and later completed by Ptolemy XI, in 57 BC. The walls of the temple are decorated by inscriptions and scenes that depict temple liturgy and nationalism. It is a fine example of a classic Egyptian temple and was built along one main axis.
