On a Private Guided Tour In Cairo
All of our existing Nile Cruise and Stay packages include at least two or three nights in Cairo so that we can show you some of the very best attractions to be found in and around Cairo, from the ancient Giza Pyramids on the outskirts of Cairo, to the first pyramid built at Saqqara, and more.
In addition to the pyramids at Giza and Saqqara, you can also look forward to visiting a number of other fascinating places in and around Cairo, including places such as the Egyptian Museum; the Cairo Citadel and its famous Muhammad Ali Alabaster Mosque; the Ben Ezra Synagogue; the Hanging Church of Cairo; Memphis, the capital of the Old Kingdom, and the not-to-be-missed Khan el Khalili Bazaar which has been going ever since the late 14th century.
There are or course an almost infinite number of other wonderful things to see and do in and around Cairo, and because we also offer Customized Nile Cruise Holidays we can tailor your tour to include any and all other attractions you would like to see while you are in Cairo.
Unless it is clearly stated otherwise in our itineraries, your tours in and around Cairo are all private tours that also include your own personal driver and one of our friendly Egyptologist tour guides.
Interesting Fact – Did you know that while images of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx have become synonymous with the face of Ancient Egypt and its powerful pharaohs, only a very small number of pharaohs were actually laid to rest in pyramids? Most were in fact buried in rock-cut tombs such as those found in the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens in Luxor.
Cruising Through the Nile River Valley
Whether your 5-Star Nile cruise ship takes you from Aswan to Luxor, or whether it takes you from Luxor to Aswan, the magic simply doesn’t end; from the time you board your beautifully appointed cruise ship, to the time you finally disembark at the end of your cruise. Any Nile cruise is a wonderful experience, but when you have booked one of our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays, it is even better because you will once again have one of our friendly Egyptologist tour guides with you to show you around all the incredible sites you will be visiting during your cruise.
The cruise ships which we book our clients onto are literally like floating hotels with all the regular amenities people have come to expect when they book into a good hotel. We also book our clients onto these ships on a full-board basis so you don’t even need to worry about meals during your cruise.
Even though our various Nile Cruise and Stay packages can vary significantly from one package to the next, you can still expect to visit and explore the same amazing sites while you are enjoying your 5-Star cruise through the Nile River Valley. Below is a breakdown of which incredible sites you can look forward to visiting with your Egyptologist tour guide during your cruise:
Aswan and Its Ancient – and Modern Wonders
In Aswan, 3 attractions which feature in just about all of our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays are the astonishing Aswan High Dam; the massive Unfinished Obelisk, and the truly remarkable Temple of Philae. While the Aswan High Dam is by no means an ancient attraction, or even a very old one, it is still a very remarkable place to visit, not least because of the fact that it quite literally changed the face and future of Egypt forever. It also gave birth to the forming of Lake Nasser which in turn led to the rescue and relocation of several ancient sites which would otherwise have vanished below the water when the lake formed.
The ancient Temple of Philae which you will visit while you are in Aswan is just one example of a magnificent monument that had to be rescued by moving it in its entirety from its original location to higher ground. Some of our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays also include a visit to the Abu Simbel temples which are located approximately 230km away from Aswan, and if your chosen itinerary includes a visit to these two gigantic temples, you will be even more amazed to know that they too were relocated in their entirety to higher ground
Kom Ombo Temple
All the Nile River cruises that feature in our Nile Cruise and Stay packages stop at Kom Ombo which is just a relatively short distance away from Aswan. When your cruise ship docks at Kom Ombo, your Egyptologist tour guide will accompany you on a tour to the absolutely fascinating Temple of Kom Ombo. This Unique ancient complex was constructed in honor of two different gods, Sobek the crocodile God, and Horus the falcon-headed god. In order to avoid offending either of these two gods, the temple was built in such a way so that each god would have their own half, and both halves had to be identical in every way. It is really a unique and incredibly fascinating site, and you’ll guide will be more than happy to share its history with you.
After your ship leaves Kom Ombo, the next place it will dock at is Edfu. Once the vessel docks here, your Egyptologist tour guide will once again escort you on an excursion to see the absolutely indescribable Temple of Horus. This remarkable ancient complex was abandoned by the Romans and later became buried beneath the sand, and it remained that way for more than two thousand years. As a result, it is today the most well-preserved ancient temple ever discovered in Egypt.
Luxor – The Ancient Capital City of Thebes
The tours which you will enjoy once your ship docks at Luxor, are tour experiences which you are not likely to ever forget. Usually, sightseeing tours in Luxor are divided into two stages: an East Bank tour and a West Bank tour. During your East Bank tour, you can look forward to seeing places such as the beautifully preserved Luxor Temple, as well as the sprawling Karnak Temple complex which was once a temple city which was formed over a period of more than two thousand years.
When you are taken for your West Bank tour, the sightseeing is just as spectacular, and you can look forward to visiting places such as the Colossi of Memnon; the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and of course the sprawling necropolis known as the Valley of the Kings. It is within this ancient necropolis where the tomb of King Tutankhamun was discovered in 1920 by Howard Carter. When the tomb was discovered, it was still sealed and intact, and full of treasures and artifacts, all of which are on display at the Treasures Room at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays do not include an admission ticket for the tomb of King Tutankhamun, but a ticket can be purchased on the site. Unfortunately, tour operators are no longer able to purchase tickets on behalf of their clients. It is also worth noting that there are always long queues of people waiting to see the world’s most famous ancient tomb, and only a certain number of tickets are sold each day. In light of this, if you want to see inside King Tutankhamen’s tomb it is best to let us know well in advance because you will probably need to spend at least one or more additional days in Luxor.
What Else To Expect During your Nile Cruise and Stay Holiday
Depending on which one of our Nile Cruise and Stay packages you book, you may very well be able to enjoy onboard entertainment in the evenings aboard the ship as well. Entertainment can range from a Captain’s Welcome cocktail party, to things like authentic Egyptian Belly Dancer shows, Tanoura dancers, and various other fun activities. Regardless of what sort of entertainment is provided during the course of your Nile River cruise, you can be sure that your time on the water will be totally unforgettable.
Nile Cruise and Stay – To Egypt and Beyond
While some of our Nile Cruise and Stay itineraries only include time in Egypt and an unforgettable Nile River cruise, others include visiting one or more additional destinations such as Morocco, Jordan, Dubai, or Turkey. If you’re chosen a tour itinerary which includes one or more additional destinations, then once your Nile River cruise is over, you will fly back to Cairo where you will typically spend one more night before boarding your flight to your chosen second destination.
As is always the case when you travel with us, when you arrive at the airport in whichever destination you have chosen, we will once again have one of our tour representatives standing by to meet you at the airport, and to escort you to your hotel. Throughout your tour, you can expect the same high level of service and hospitality that you have enjoyed during your time in Egypt.
The Magic of Egypt and Beyond, Without the Hassle and Worry
Not only are our Nile Cruise and Stay holidays unbelievably affordable and totally unforgettable, but they also offer travelers one of the most convenient and more hassle-free mean of exploring Egypt and beyond.
