Amazing 5-Day Nile Cruises in Egypt
5-day Nile Cruises are an excellent choice for anyone with limited time on their hands, or for those who are traveling on a tight budget but would still like to spoil themselves with a few days of total luxury and comfort while visiting some of Egypt’s most prized ancient attractions at the same time.
Generally speaking, most of our 5-day Nile cruises operate between Luxor and Aswan, running in both directions. However, we do also have some cruises which depart from places such as Abu Simbel and Esna, again, running in both directions.
Our 5-day Nile cruises generally don’t include travel to Luxor, Aswan, Esna, or Abu Simbel from other areas within the country. However, if you are traveling to one of these places for a Nile cruise you have booked through us, one of our tour representatives will be standing by to meet you when you arrive at Luxor Airport or Aswan Airport, and they will then escort you to the place where you will be joining your cruise.
When your cruise ends, you will once again be met by one of our tour managers, and you will be transferred to the airport or the railway station for your onward journey.
Customizing Your 5-Day Nile Cruise
While the actual cruises cannot be customized to suit a client’s individual needs, we can offer customization in other areas. For example, if you plan on spending a few days in Cairo or elsewhere before the start of your cruise, we can customize your 5 day Nile cruise package so that it includes air travel or rail travel to Luxor or Aswan.
5-Day/4-Night Nile Cruises = Outstanding Value for Money
5-day Nile cruises include full board and lodging on board a luxury cruise ship where you can expect to find all the amenities which one would expect to find at any good 5-Star hotel. You will also enjoy three wholesome meals a day, as well as any and all onboard entertainment mentioned in the various tour itineraries. However, your cruise does not include beverages and/or personal services such as massages, manicures, pedicures, and etc.
5 Days of Nile Cruising = Non-Stop Sightseeing From Beginning to End
We want our 5-day Nile cruises to be as fulfilling and as rewarding as possible for our clients, and for this reason, you will find that your sightseeing adventure begins almost from the moment you step on board. In most instances, you will enjoy a delicious lunch on board the ship shortly after boarding, and then you will be taken to visit one or more spectacular attractions nearby.
For example, if you cruise begins at Abu Simbel, you will enjoy an unforgettable visit to the rock-cut Abu Simbel Temples, which happens to be one of the country’s most famous and most cherished ancient monuments. One the other hand, if your cruise kicks off at Luxor, then you can expect to visit other sites which are equally as famous, such as Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple and etc.
No matter which of our 5-day Nile cruises you opt for, you can be sure that it will be one of the most amazing experiences you could ever hope to imagine. After all, at Egypt Tours Plus, we believe that every tour of Egypt should be one you will never forget.
