The River Nile snakes through Egypt on its journey through Africa. Its green shores and deep waters have been sustaining life since the time of the ancient Egyptians. A cruise along the river will show you why it’s still very special - from the charming islands of Aswan to the huge temples of Luxor. A trip along the Nile is perfect for couples, honeymoons and families.


Chart Egypt’s history on a cruise down the romantic River Nile. Riverboats journey along this vast waterway from Cairo, all the way down to Aswan in the south, whilst shorter cruises sail from Luxor. Travelling by luxury riverboat is a comfortable and fascinating way to explore the ancient temples of Luxor and the Nubian culture of Aswan. Along the way, you’ll see fertile shorelines dotted with little villages and pictures of Egyptian life.
