4-Day Easter Nile River Cruise
DAY 1 – Your Easter Nile River Cruise Begins at Luxor
Our 4-Day Easter Nile River Cruise is all about allowing our guests to enjoy a flawless short break in the lap of luxury with VIP treatment from beginning to end, so whether you arrive in Aswan by air or by rail, one of our tour managers will be standing by to meet and greet you. He will also assist you in any way he can at the airport or the train station, and then he will escort you to the area where you will be boarding your luxurious 5-Star Nile cruise liner.
Once you board the ship, you will be checked in, and at around midday you will get to enjoy your first good lunch on board this magnificent boat. Shortly after lunch, you will disembark, and along with a small group of other passengers, you will be taken to see three of Aswan’s top historical attractions.
Your first stop during this tour will be at the Aswan High Dam, an engineering accomplishment which changed the face and future of Egypt forever. From here you head to the northern region of the area’s ancient quarries to see the Unfinished Obelisk which is the biggest obelisk ever discovered. Lastly, you will visit the Temple of Philae.
This ancient temple once stood on a tiny island but after the High Dam was completed and the water level of Lake Nasser started rising, the temple was relocated in its entirety in order to prevent it from being lost forever. This is without question one of the best ancient attractions in the country, and visiting this site will be an experience you are not likely to forget.
After your visit to the temple, you will head back to the boat in time for some afternoon tea and an opportunity to enjoy a very entertaining Nubian folkloric show. In the evening you will get to enjoy your first on-board dinner in the vessel’s beautiful dining hall, and then you can spend the rest of the evening relaxing.
