Egyptian luxury cruise holidays

Luxury cruises offer tourists the opportunity to explore great areas of a country during a 7 day holiday. In Egypt, Nile cruises are a popular holiday choice. They offer comfortable accommodation and easy access to some of the country’s best sites. If you are planning to visit the area we suggest sightseeing in the morning before the day becomes too hot and before lots of people are at the locations.

The Nile cruises can explore Luxor, Aswan, Kom Ombo and many other great Egyptian areas. Luxor is a must see destination for historians as the area is home to the Valley of the Kings, which contains tombs of pharaohs. The Temple of Karnak in the area is one of the biggest temple complexes still in existence.

Aswan offers a quieter location but has great beaches and all year round sun. The area also has historic sites such as the Nubian Temples and the unfinished Obelisk. We would recommend watching the feluccas meander down the Nile, a sight you aren’t likely to forget.

Kom Ombo is a farming based town that is situated between the Nubia and the Nile Valley. The area is famous for its “Temple of Kom Ombo”, a double temple that has two symmetrical sides. One of the sides of the temple is dedicated to the Crocodile god Sobek, while the other side is dedicated to the falcon god Horus.

We would recommend Nile cruise holidays to people that love to explore historic sites. They offer luxurious accommodation and guide guests through the many great locations the country has to offer.

    Very hot in July and August best to go outside of these months.

    This is a great post. While I would not consider the boats on the Nile to be “luxury”, they are quite nice. We did a Nile River cruise in July to the sites you mentioned. Yes, it was hot, but not terrible. I would agree with everything you wrote. And Kom Ombo was our favorite on the Nile (although Abu Simbel on Lake Naser was our favorite overall).
