If you are considering a Nile cruise or a Nile cruise and stay holiday, in March 2014, then Nile Cruises with GoCruise will be able to help you find your ideal trip.
As well as a Nile cruise, there are a number of options to add a hotel stay as well. You could add a 3 night stay in Cairo to make a 10 night holiday, or perhaps a week in a hotel in Luxor or at a Red Sea resort such as El Gouna, Hurghada or Makadi Bay, to make a 14 night holiday. On some departures it is possible to add a short cruise on Lake Nasser as well, which is an amazing way to see Abu Simbel. There are of course a lot more options, which I can talk you through, to ensure we find the best one for you.
There are generally 10 excursions included on a Nile cruise and, while the selection can vary slightly from company to company, they would generally include the following Valley of the Kings, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Colossi of Memnon, Temple of Karnak, Temple of Luxor, the High Dam at Aswan, Temple of Philae, Temple of Horus & Sobek at Edfu, and a ride in a Felucca. Optional excursions would generally include Abu Simbel, a hot air balloon flight from Luxor, a sound and light show at one of the temples, and the Pyramids and Sphinx if you go to Cairo.
With a number of boats ranging from a 4 star up to a 5 star luxury, most with full board but some on an All Inclusive basis, there is bound to be one to suit your requirements. The main companies we use are Discover Egypt, with the popular Alexander the Great, Royal Viking and Viking Princess, Red Sea Holidays with the Grand Rose, Grand Preziosa and Grand Star, and Bales Worldwide with the amazing Bales Dahabiyyas. Other companies include Longwood Holidays, Kuoni, Cosmos and Titan Travel etc, with a wide selection of boats. On Lake Nasser the main boats are Eugenie, Kasr Ibrim & Prince Abbas.
Flights are generally from Gatwick, with some of the holidays giving options from Manchester, although there are some, like the 10 nights Cairo and Nile cruise, which would be from Heathrow.
