Jules Verne is thrilled to unveil their brand-new brochure, The Wonders of Egypt, where they invite you to embark on a journey of discovery through ancient lands on their 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. Jules Verne’s trips have been designed to extract the very best of the country, from bucket list sites to rarely visited gems sought out by their team of experts. They offer Nile cruises ranging from four to 14 nights, catering to every traveller – from the first-time visitor to the 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 the only itinerary that visits the temples of Lake Nasser by water, making it ideal for those after an alternative take on the region. Travellers will also explore renowned sites 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. This vessel is home to just 24 cabins, providing an intimate and personalised experience with décor befitting its royal heritage and original steam engines still viewable. 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.

UK Boat Hire will introduce you to one of Britain’s best kept secrets, the 2000 mile network of waterways and navigations, for which the canal boat was specially designed, that meander across some of the most beautiful countryside, and past pubs, cottages and warehouses. Here you will discover the Britain most tourists miss on their holidays.
First time boaters are given a friendly welcome by everybody on the canal. But you won’t be inexperienced for very long, for within a short time you will be gliding serenely around the first bend into a whole new and different world.
Most visitors appreciate the independence, the peace and tranquillity of ‘getting away from it all’. You can choose between the challenge of some of the densely locked stretches of canal – quite astounding feats of engineering – or choose lazy days drifting along the many stretches with very few locks. The canals and rivers go through the heart of the cities as well as through open countryside, and your boat can be a mobile base for exploring the history of our great trading routes, or for the diverse entertainment you will find in our largest city centres.
UK Boat Hire offers 16 start locations to explore the two thousand miles of tranquil waterways, threading their way through some of Britain’s most beautiful and unspoiled countryside, offering a haven for wildlife and an insight into our industrial heritage. A network of waterways taking you to the heart of major cities, with all the entertainment and leisure facilities that they provide.
