From the Red Sea to the Nile - 10 nights

Exceptional value for our new tour during the favoured season for the classic Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan, viewing the most famous temples and tombs – combined with a beach stay by
the Red Sea

If a Nile cruise has always been on your list of classic journeys and you can travel at short notice, then this fantastic offer is an opportunity that should not be missed. Enjoy a Nile cruise during the best time of year at a remarkably low tariff including full board and excursions with an interlude on the Red Sea. In many ways a Nile cruise presents almost too many options – the wish to take advantage of an experienced guide, the desire for independent exploration and the attraction of relaxing in a warm climate amidst scenic river landscapes on a high quality cruise vessel.
