Egypt Nile River cruise 2024

Egypt Nile Cruise

Nile River cruises, during the past few years, have become extremely popular among tourists who visit Egypt.

Booking a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan, or vice versa, has become the number one choice for numerous travelers who spend their vacations in Egypt.
As a matter of fact, the ancient Egyptians have used Nile cruise boats for thousands of years for different and several reasons. The first is as a means of transportation between the North and the South. Secondly, for commercial reasons and last, but never least for having the best Nile River cruises for leisure and enjoying wonderful times with friends and family members.

The first and perhaps most popular is from Luxor to Aswan. This trip is usually from 4 to 5 days, 3 or 4 nights. Guests will get the opportunity to explore the monuments of ancient Egypt in the East Bank of the Nile including the Karnak and Luxor Temples.


Afterwards, they visit the ancient sites in the West Bank of Luxor like the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Hatshepsut, and the
Colossi of Memnon.
Afterwards, the cruise in the river Nile would move towards the South. This is when guests get to visit the ancient sites of the
Temple of Horus in Edfu and then the Temple of Sobek in Kom Ombo. The last day would be dedicated to the marvels of Aswan
including the Temple of Philae, the Unfinished Obelisk, and the High Dam.


Aswan represents another great launch point for Egypt cruises. Tourists have the chance to choose either to sail towards the North
towards Luxor for 3 to 4 days, 2 to 3 nights, or go on an adventure in time and sail from Aswan to Abu Simbel.


Nile River cruises going from Aswan to Abu Simbel offer tourists the matchless opportunity to explore some of the distinctive
historical sites located to the South of Aswan. These historical sites include Qasr Ibrim, the Temple of Kalabsha, and the magnificent
Temple of Abu Simbel at the end of the trip.


Travelers who wish to maximize the fun and have a longer and more enjoyable Nile cruise in Egypt have a bunch of choices. They
can select cruising up the Nile from Luxor to Aswan and then ride back to Luxor. This trip usually takes from 7 to 8 days, 6 to 7
nights. The same applies as well for Nile River tours from Aswan to Abu Simbel. Tourists can double the trip by traveling from Aswan to Abu Simbel and return back for a journey full of wonders.

How Can We Help

Egypt is nearly crime-free; as Lonely Planet notes, “The incidence of crime, violent or otherwise, in Egypt is negligible compared with many Western countries, and you’re generally safe walking around day or night.”

In short, Americans and other visitors can rest easy: yes, Egypt is a safe country for tourists. And the rest of the world seems to agree — after years of middling numbers, tourism in Egypt is steadily rising towards its former highs, hosting over 9 million sightseers in 2018. The longer answer is worth exploring, though, and we have some assurances to offer all our clients who join us on all of our Egypt Travel Packages.

There are no “formal nights” or other theme nights on Nile Cruises, so you can just go with resort casual. Slacks are fine, as are dresses. Bare shoulders are acceptable in the cruise dining room, so feel free to wear what you feel good in.

What is the best time to visit Egypt?
The best time to visit Egypt is from September through to April. Christmas, New Year and Easter are also very popular times to visit, so it’s wise to book early.

Do respect the monuments archaeological sites are human heritage don’t touch scratch or sit on it. Do dress correctly whilst there is no specific dress code in the cities, women will feel more comfortable if they do not wear shorts or have their shoulders uncovered.

Pants, Capris, Leggings, and Shorts
Basically, as long as your knees are covered, you are good. So whether you choose pants or capris, you will feel comfortable and remain respectful. Local women wear long pants or skirts; however, I wore capris a couple of days with no issues.

Service charges are by default included in the bill when dining in a restaurant. However, these fees go to the restaurant and not the waiters. Knowing this it is advisable and courteous to directly tip the servers with an additional 10 %.

Absolutely! The temples of Abu Simbel are some of most impressive and unique temples you will see in Egypt, so it is well worth the visit.

It was dedicated to the gods Amun, Ra-Horakhty, and Ptah, as well as to the deified Ramesses himself. It is generally considered the grandest and most beautiful of the temples commissioned during the reign of Ramesses II, and one of the most beautiful in Egypt.
