Highlights

Classic Nile

A cruise down the majestic River Nile makes the wonders of Ancient Egypt come alive. You’ll be cruising on a floating five-star hotel with every modern comfort imaginable. This is a classic Nile tour with a pronounced sense of style. Drift past temples, tombs, colossal statues, wildlife and farmlands that line the banks as they have for millennia. At your side you’ll have the expert tutelage of an Egyptologist, revealing secret insights and deepening your appreciation. See where Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s burial chamber, lose yourself in the meandering alleys of bustling souks, ponder ancient hieroglyphics. And then relax as you sail gently down the Nile.

UK - Luxor

When you arrive in Egypt we’ll be there to take you to into the capital of the Upper Nile, Luxor. The Sanctuary Sun Boat IV will be your floating home for the next eight nights. So unpack and relax as you’re delivered in supreme comfort to some of the most amazing sites of the ancient world.

Luxor

The Nile is the perfect vantage point from which to appreciate the wonders of this ancient land. The banks of the river have set the scene for daily life for thousands of years, and today it can seem as though nothing has changed. Visit the Temple of Karnak, built over a period of a thousand years by generations of Pharaohs. The great Hypostyle Hall is an incredible forest of giant pillars, covering an area larger than the whole of Notre Dame Cathedral. Later on, set sail to Esna.

Luxor - Kom Ombo

The Sanctuary Sun Boat IV will head south today, past the city of Esna, with its ancient Temple of Khnum. Spend some time on board to enjoy the facilities. You’ll reach the Temple of Horus at Edfu, dedicated to the falcon-headed god. After a day’s sightseeing, head back to the cool environs of the cruiser at Kom Ombo, for a delicious Egyptian supper.

Kom Ombo - Aswan

Enjoy the outdoor sun deck, gym and relaxation areas on the boat. Dinner tonight will be Gala dinner, with a folkloric show and dervish show.

Aswan

You get the chance to explore beautiful, ancient Aswan today. Right on the river, this city has been a place of strategic importance since antiquity. Today you can peruse its vibrant souks and take shade under the palm trees. Catch a single-sail felucca and visit some of the small islands around here, which are home to some important ruins.

Aswan - Kom Ombo

A breakfast buffet is served on board as you cruise to Aswan, followed by a short motorboat ride to visit the majestic Philae Temple on the Island of Agilika. Next proceed to the Granite Quarries, which supplied the ancient Egyptians with most of the hard stone used in pyramids and temples. Here you see the Unfinished Obelisk, located in the northern region of the stone quarries. Enjoy lunch as you cruise to Kom Ombo and spend the afternoon at leisure.

Kom Ombo - Luxor

Morning visit to explore the extraordinary Temple of Horus. Despite being built by the Greeks, this impressive structure is the largest and most complete preserved Pharaonic temple in Egypt. Return to the boat and lunch is served as you sail to Luxor. Your afternoon is at leisure to enjoy the facilities once again.

Luxor

We’re coming to the end of the trip, but there’s still much to see and do. Your Egyptologist will guide you through the Temple of Karnak. After lunch, you’ll visit the Valley of the Kings, where Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered nearly 100 years ago. Over at the Valley of the Queens is the resting place of the female pharaoh, Hatshepsut.

Depart Egypt

After breakfast, you’ll be transported to the airport so you can catch your flight back to the UK.
