Long Cruise of the Nile Valley

Sailing the Nile along the lush Nile Valley surrounded by golden dunes and sightseeing Ancient Egyptian monuments such as Kom Ombo and Abu Simbel is tourism at its best. Tourists come from all over the world to witness the greatness of the Ancient Egyptian civilization. A Nile cruise can be the perfect choice to enjoy the Nile Valley of Egypt and explore the breathtaking ancient monuments along the valley. Nile cruises options vary from short cruises between Luxor and Aswan and long cruises that sail between Cairo and Luxor or Cairo and Aswan. The long Nile cruise trip along the Valley from Cairo to Luxor or Cairo to Aswan can take between 11/13/14/15 days depends on your preference.  

Abu Simbel Temples can be one of the best sites to visit while in Aswan. Abu Simbel was rediscovered in 1813 by Swiss explorer John Lewis Burckhardt. The temples had long been forgotten and the sands of the desert sands had covered all but the tops of the heads of the huge statues in front of their entrances. Since 1909 when the sand was finally cleared away, these twin temples have become the most famous site in Egypt’s south.


Although they seem like monuments to Ramesses II and his wife, both temples are actually temples dedicated to the gods. The larger temple with four huge statues of Ramesses II seated in front of it is dedicated to Amun, Ptah, and Re-Harakty. The second temple, still huge although significantly smaller than the first, was built to honor Ramesses favorite wife, Nefertari, and is dedicated to the goddess Hathor.


Long Cruise of the Nile Valley


A Nile cruise tour is like a floating hotel that takes you sightseeing. Unpack once and go. Cruise boats sail to most of Ancient Egypt’s iconic landmarks you’ve dreamed of visiting. The cruise sails between Cairo and Luxor, Cairo and Aswan and covers the best of Egypt’s sightseeing experiences coupled with luxury transport and accommodation. Ports include enchanting destinations like Luxor, Esna, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Aswan, Qena, Fayoum, Cairo and more.


Luxor has been given the nickname, “the world’s greatest open-air museum”. This is thanks to the ancient pharaohs’ efforts to immortalize themselves. Both sides of the Nile are covered in the remains of temples and funerary complexes. The modern city was built up right along with these ruins. It creates an interesting mix of old and new that can only be found in Luxor. This is most evident in the areas of Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple Complex. Their ancient stone architecture sits next to sleek modern construction, creating a beautiful contrast.

Additionally, the area around Luxor and the opposite bank of the river are dotted with a wealth of other temples and tombs. It would several days to explore all of the archeological sites in the area. At each site sits a wealth of knowledge about the ancient Egyptians and their world. 


Cruise ships offer features such as panoramic views, broad decks, TV broadcasts of the Nile view and supper clubs. Note that different cruise boats have different programmes. Wake to the soft light of the morning sun, take in the heat and cool off in the pool on the deck of a cruiser; watch fishermen cast their nets, farmers take to their fields, a flight of birds, and water buffalos staring back at you. Book a Nile cruise and you just might unravel another layer of the mystery that is Ancient Egypt.
