Egypt River Cruise Highlights

  • Float from Cairo to Aswan in the river where no mainstream liners are found, the tranquil waters call for a ride on a luxury felucca or traditional dahabiya.
  • Pyramids: Ride a camel and fall in love with these majestic wonders of the ancient world.
  • Luxor: With a mysterious ambiance that is amplified by the historic temples, statues that guard the entrance and huge pillars that loom overhead as you walk in the footsteps of King Tut.
  • Valley of the Kings: You can’t help but feel like Indiana Jones in this royal burial site. Home to the great names of Egyptian history and their elaborate preparations for the next world.
  • Abu Simbel: Guarded by impressive statues, these great sandstone temples will leave you speechless.
  • Edfu: Wander through the sandstone walls of the Temple of Horus and experience the impressive power of past rulers.
  • Red Sea: Kick back and relax as you take in the stunning views of these great waters from the beaches of Hurghada.

Egypt River Cruise Tips

  • Hop off your boat and take a sunrise balloon trip from Luxor! There’s something about floating silently above the temples that is such a magical experience.
  • No matter what time of year you visit, Egypt gets hot, obviously, you’re in the desert! Bring a hat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen and make sure you stay hydrated with bottled water.
  • You should definitely add the word “baksheesh” to your vocabulary, which means “tip”. You’ll hear this one a lot and it will be expected for anything and everything. Tipping locals for their services is expected and a way of life in Egypt.
  • Make the most of your cruise ship facilities. After spending your days exploring temples and tombs in the desert heat, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a hot cup of tea watching the palm trees pass you by.
  • Remember to pack clothes for both hot and cold weather, as the nights can get chilly. Also remember that Egypt is a muslim country, so men are required to wear trousers and women should also “cover up”. A wardrobe of loose capris and blouses should do nicely!
  • Head to the top deck in the evening. There’s nothing quite like watching the sunset over the dusty desert sand from your river cruise while sipping Arabic coffee and watching your hair dance as the wind blows.
  • There are many cruises that sail along the Nile with Uniworld, Scenic and Emerald Waterways offering a luxurious travel experience.
