Visiting Ancient Egypt’s Historical Wonders with Epic Nile Cruises from Luxor to Aswan
All our Luxor Nile cruises begin with some unforgettable sightseeing in Luxor. Here you will get to visit some of the most famous ancient sites located on Luxor’s East Bank and West Bank. While tour itineraries can and do vary between one cruise package and the next, most will include a visit to Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple on the East Bank, and a visit to Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut on the West Bank.
Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, in particular, are considered by many to be among Egypt’s most prized historical sites. Valley of the Kings is a sprawling necropolis where more than 70 royal tombs have been discovered, with the tomb of King Ramses the 6th and the tomb King Tutankhamen being the most famous of them all. Queen Hatshepsut’s temple on the other hand, is a vast and magnificent structure that was carved out of a rock face. It is remarkably well-preserved, and it is probably one of the most memorable sites you will visit during your Nile River cruise vacation.
After the sites in Luxor have been visited, your cruise ship will more often than not start sailing towards Edfu via Esna, although some of the longer cruise packages include a sightseeing visit and an overnight stop in Quina, before they head towards Edfu. Depending on which package you choose, you may have an overnight stop in Esna, or else you will simply pass through the Esna lock and continue on to Edfu.
Most good quality Nile cruises from Luxor to Aswan will include an onshore excursion while in Edfu, during which time you will visit the best-preserved temple of the Ancient World. Commonly referred to as the Temple of Edfu, it was built to honor Horus the falcon God, and it is believed to have taken roughly 25 years to complete. Its exceptional preservation is largely due to the fact that it lay buried beneath the sand for more than 2000 years.
After Edfu, most of the cruise ships that feature in our Luxor to Aswan cruises will then sail on to Kom Ombo for some more sightseeing. Depending on which Nile cruise you choose, you may only spend a few hours in Kom Ombo before heading on to Aswan, or you may spend the night at Kom Ombo, and then depart for Aswan in the morning.
Before you cruise officially comes to an end in Aswan, you will typically be taken to visit some of the area’s most prominent sites such as the Aswan High Dam and the spectacular Philae Temple which was moved in its entirety in order to rescue it from the rising waters of Lake Nasser.
