Sightseeing During Your 6-Day Nile Cruise

6-day Nile cruises typically sail from Aswan to Luxor, or from Luxor to Aswan, stopping at several places along the way where passengers get to enjoy unforgettable excursions to a number of ancient sites, including the Temple of Horus at Edfu, one of the best-preserved ancient temples in all of Egypt, thanks to the fact that it lay buried beneath the sand for more than 2,000 years.

All of our 6-day Nile cruises also call at Kom Ombo where you will be taken to see the famous Kom Ombo Temple. While this monument is seen and recognized as a single temple, it is, in fact, two identical temples, with one being a mirror image of the other. The temples were dedicated to two different gods, so both temples had to be identical so that neither of the two gods would feel offended.

Passengers also get treated to some incredible sightseeing opportunities in both Luxor and Aswan. For Instance, in Aswan, you can expect to visit places such as the Aswan High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk, and the indescribable Temple of Philae which was moved in its entirety in order to save it from the rising water level of Lake Nasser.

In Luxor, you will also enjoy visiting a number of amazing sites. These will typically include places such as Valley of the Kings, and ancient necropolis where more than 60 tombs have been discovered, including the intact tomb of King Tutankhamen. You’ll also visit the sprawling Karnak Temple complex, Luxor Temple, and the remarkable rock-cut mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

6-Day Nile Cruises – Luxury from Beginning to End

Our 6-day Nile cruises all about luxury travel on board modern ships such as the Oberoi Zahra, which have all the world-class amenities one would expect to find at any good 5-Star hotel. For those travelers who want to enjoy a greater sense of exclusivity, or for those who prefer to travel in smaller groups, we also offer 6-day Nile cruises on a traditional Dahabiya boat. These twin-sail boats, in one form or another, have been used on the Nile for thousands of years already.

The Dahabiya Nile cruise boats which feature in our cruises have all been luxuriously decorated so that passengers still get to enjoy 5-Star comfort and hospitality as the sail silently along the Nile. Regardless of which cruise you opt for, you will enjoy 3 fine meals a day and your nights will be spent in the comfort of a luxury cabin or suite.
