TREASURES OF THE NILE 

Egypt’s iconic temples and tombs, combining the Pyramids with a full week’s cruise on the ‘most luxurious steamship on the Nile’

Experience the temples, tombs and scenic splendour of Egypt. Stay in view of the Pyramids and explore Egypt's ancient capitals. Cairo’s Egyptian Museum is the world’s greatest repository of ancient Egyptian treasures including those from Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Our unique luxury steamship offers the highest standards of comfort, food, service and hygiene. SS Misr was restored for Jules Verne in a choice of period styles, and is indeed one of the ‘Treasures of the Nile’, the most appropriate way to follow in the footsteps of the first British visitors to Egypt.

Notes

Temple, tomb and pyramid visits are on foot with steps and uneven surfaces.

Mooring may be alongside other vessels with views obstructed and access to your own boat through other vessels' lobbies and across gangplanks.

In Luxor the local authorities are introducing regulations to move boats' moorings away from the town centre and your vessel will normally be berthed outside the town.

The programme may be altered due to navigational factors or local conditions.

Early morning starts are often made to excursions thereby avoiding the main crowds at the sites and the intensity of the midday sun.
