We are thrilled to unveil our brand-new brochure, The Wonders of Egypt, where we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery through ancient lands on our small group tours and cruises.
From the indomitable Pyramids, the last remaining wonder of the ancient world, to the Temples of Karnak, built across a period of 2,000 years, Egypt is a never-ending treasure trove of history and culture. Our trips have been designed to extract the very best of the country, from bucket list sites to rarely visited gems sought out by our team of experts. We offer Nile cruises ranging from four to 14 nights, offering something for every traveller – from first-time visitor to Egypt expert.
Starting in Cairo, Lake Nasser & the Nile is a new 10-night trip combining a land stay in the capital with two contrasting cruises: four nights on Lake Nasser, and three nights from Aswan to Luxor on the MS Hamees. It’s our only itinerary that visits the temples of Lake Nasser by water, so it’s ideal if you’re after an alternative take on the region. You’ll also explore big hitters including the Pyramids of Giza, the ancient treasures of Luxor, and sail to Abu Simbel to witness a delightful sound and light show.
The Timeless Nile by Royal Steamer sails on the SS Misr, the vessel is home to just 24 cabins, so it’s intimate and personalised, with décor befitting of its royal heritage and original steam engines you can still view. This exclusive new Jules Verne charter includes a visit to the ancient, rock-cut temple complex of Abu Simbel and a rare visit to Denderah, one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt dedicated to the goddess Hathor.
Classic Week on the Nile is a new week-long trip perfect for travelers short on time, offering excellent value for money. You’ll sail on the contemporary vessel MS Hamees, taking in the Valley of the Kings, Kom Ombo, Edfu temple, and Aswan.
If you’d prefer to stay on land, opt for our eight-day Unpack & Explore itinerary based in Luxor. Leisurely Luxor is one of two new single-center tours, taking you on guided land excursions around Luxor to see the Valley of the Kings, the Temples of Karnak, and other key sites. Settle into the Pavillon Winter Hotel, a comfortable hotel located in the grounds of the famous Old Winter Palace hotel, or for a truly special experience upgrade to sleep at the palace itself (for an extra supplement).
Gems of Cairo is a four-night stay that is all about Cairo’s cultural lures. From a base in the heart of modern Cairo, you’ll enjoy full-day tours to the Pyramids, Memphis, and Saqqara, as well as the Egyptian Museum – soon to be the much-anticipated Grand Egyptian Museum. The tour also includes a free day to explore at leisure, making it a great choice if you’re looking for a flexible, personalized trip.
In addition to these new tours, the brochure also includes our existing cruises. If you’ve never been to Egypt and want to pack in the classic sites, Pyramids & the Nile is a great choice. Alternatively, if you have already visited Egypt and want to get further off the beaten track, we recommend our 10-night Treasures of the Nile cruise on the charming Moroccan-inspired MS Darakum. The Secret Nile, our longest cruise, overlaps with the Treasures of the Nile for the first 10 days, while the final four days explore the West Bank, home to several little-known temples. If you are looking to dig a little deeper, sail on our 600-Mile Nile and you’ll take in all the famous sites, combined with lesser-visited spots.
