5 Day Nile River Cruises
Most people, who have experienced a Nile River cruise, only have one complaint: they wish their cruise could have lasted a lot longer. Because these cruises are so short, great care has been taken to ensure that passengers get to visit and explore only the very best ancient attractions in this fascinating part of the country, including:
- Valley of the Kings
- Queen Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple
- Karnak Temple complex
- Luxor Temple
- And the wonderful Temple of Philae.

To Cairo and Beyond
Our 5 day Egypt tours that include a Nile cruise are fabulous for people who have already visited the ancient sites located in and around Cairo. However, if you are longing to see the Great Pyramids of Giza; the giant Sphinx, and a whole lot more, then you should consider one of our other 5 day Egypt itinerary packages such as our 5 Day Tour of Cairo, or our 5 Day Cairo Luxor Tour Package.
Our Cairo Luxor tour package will ensure that you see some of the best sites in and around Cairo, including the pyramids, but you will also get to visit the same sites in Luxor that you would if you were to book a Nile cruise package.
Why Your 5 Day Egypt Tours Should Include Luxor
All transfers to and from hotels and airports are done in modern air-conditioned vehicles, together with one of our drivers and one of our dedicated tour representatives. It is also worth noting that some tours include the cost of domestic flights, while others do not. For example, our Nile cruise from Sharm includes a flight from Sharm to Luxor, and a flight from Aswan back to Sharm. Likewise, our Cairo Luxor tour includes a flight from Cairo to Luxor, and a flight back to Cairo.
Packages such as our 5 Day Cruise from Luxor to Aswan do not include travel to Luxor, or onward travel from Aswan, but one of our tour representatives will be happy to customize your 5 day trip to Egypt itinerary so that it does include domestic travel if you request it.
Adding an Optional Day Trip – Giza, Alexandria, Abu Simbel and More
If your 5-day Egyptian travel experience has left you longing for more, why not consider taking advantage of our many option day trips from Cairo or elsewhere in the country. If you have not yet visited the pyramids at Giza, this could be one option. Other popular options include places like Alexandria, the Abu Simbel Temples, or Saqqara to see the Great Step Pyramid. Saqqara is just a short trip from Cairo and it is also very close to Memphis which was the Egyptian capital during the Old Kingdom era.
5 Day Egyptian Vacations: Board and Lodging
Regardless of whether you will be spending your nights in a hotel, or whether you will be spending your 5 days in Egypt on board a river cruise ship, you will enjoy 5-Star luxury and comfort. We only use the very best hotels and the very best cruise ships so that all our clients can enjoy the sort of Egypt vacation they deserve.
All Nile River cruises are on a “Full-Board” basis, which means all your meals are served on board your ship, and are included in the cost of your 5 days in Egypt. Other 5 Day Egypt Tours that don’t feature a cruise don’t include “Full-Board” so it is best to check your preferred itinerary to see which meals are included in the price and which ones are not.
NOTE: All excursions during a Nile cruise are group tours. Our other 5 day Egypt tours which don’t include a Nile cruise, are private guided Egypt tours, in which case you will have your own dedicated driver and tour guide/tour representative during your 5 days in Egypt.
