Guide to Nile Cruise, Egypt

From Luxor to Aswan

Luxor can feel like you are in an outdoor museum. Luxor is home to many of the well known temples and tombs of Egypt. This city is definitely worth exploring – ride around in a horse-drawn carriage even!

Whist on holiday in Luxor the West bank is where you will track down the alluring Valley of the kings and Valley of the Queens. Tutankhumun’s tomb is here too. Although the tombs are now empty you cannot miss the beautifully decorated hieroglyphics. Whist on your Nile cruise trip to Luxor a trip to the beautiful temples of Karnak is a must. Here lies three main temples built and made bigger over 1300 years.
Whilst in Luxor you have to enjoy afternoon tea at the Winter Palace Hotel. A real Agatha Christie experience. The small Luxor Museum is enchanting with its display of finds.

Built on the site of Ancient Thebes over 4,000 years ago Luxor has been called the world’s greatest outdoor museum. Awe struck visitors can bask in the shadow of some of this country’s most impressive temples and tombs thanks to its fantastic state of preservation.
Located on the banks of the Nile Luxor offers ancient monuments, brilliant hospitality and a vibrant bustling street life. As one might think, the city has all the amenities tourists might expect, including a variety of hotels, bars, nightclubs and restaurants.

Aswan, Egypt's sunniest southern city and ancient frontier town is small enough to walk around and graced with the most beautiful setting on the Nile, offering a uniquely African ambiance. The pace of life is slow and relaxing.
Days can be spent strolling along the broad Corniche watching the sailboats tall masts etch the sky or sitting in floating restaurants eating freshly caught fish. The riverside is perfect for evening walks while bazaars sit amongst the labyrinth of streets behind to explore.
The town of Aswan is much quieter and relaxed than the other Egyptian cities, it creates the perfect RnR setting after the hustle of Luxor and Cairo. Aswan, the picturesque town lying on the banks of Lake Nassar is greatly known for the High Damn which is an eye-popping example of modern Egyptian engineering.

Did you know that Aswan is nearby to the incredible project which took place to move and rebuild the two temples of Abu Simbel due to the construction of the dam. The town is also well known for its fabulous market street, Sharia Assoug where spices are perfumes are almost a steal!
