OFFER ENDS 31 JULY

Sailing in style on a spacious river cruiser, this is a journey of ancient discovery and exceptional experiences. Focused on the stretch of the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, the tour teams legendary temples with a leisurely tempo and excellent value

An intriguing interlude in ancient Egypt, this week on the Nile is equally rewarding for the first-time visitor and repeat travellers. Packed with special touches and superb sightseeing, the tour is accompanied by an Egyptologist and expert local guides, sharing a wealth of knowledge to give you the best perspective at every port of call. Your vessel, the first-class MS Hamees, combines contemporary style and comfort with superb service and cuisine. Sailing through thousands of years of Egyptian life, we travel between Luxor and Aswan, taking in visits to Kom Ombo’s double-deity shrine, the Ptolemaic temple of Edfu, and Aswan’s High Dam and islands, at the first cataract of the Nile. Bookended by Luxor’s astonishing ancient sites, ‘the world’s greatest open-air museum’. Optional activities range from hot-air ballooning over Luxor to visiting incredible Abu Simbel; while special experiences include sailing on a traditional felucca, and the unique opportunity to witness Nubian life and culture in a family home at Gharb Soheil, a pocket of peace, a hub of crafts, and a colourful step back in time.
