Why not spend Christmas 2012 relaxing on a cruise along the River Nile, on a Bales Dahabiyya. Each Dahabiyya has just 6 cabins, and carries a maximum of 12 passengers, at a much slower pace of life than the other boats on the Nile. Combine your cruise with 3 nights in Cairo, and you get a fantastic holiday in Egypt.
Fly out from Heathrow to Cairo on 19th December 2012, on a sheduled Egyptair flight, and then transfer to the Mena Garden Oberoi Hotel for 3 nights on a B&B basis. While you are in Cairo you will have included excursions to The Pyramids, Sphinx and the Museum. On day 4 you will be transfer to the airport, and fly to Luxor.
When you arrive in Luxor you will transfer to your Bales Dahabiyya for a 7 night cruise along the Nile to Aswan, during which you will have escorted tours to many of the major sites, including the Valley of the Kings, Temples of Luxor, Karnak and Philae, and the Colossi of Memnon. While onboard your Dahabiyya you will receive your meals, and also wine, beer and soft drinks. On day 11 you will fly from Aswan to Cairo, to board your scheduled flight to Heathrow.
This amazing 10 night holiday is just £2,345 per person, based on two people sharing, and was correct and available at the time of posting. You can pre-book optional excursions which can include a day trip by air from Aswan to Abu Simbel, and a Hot Air Balloon flight into the Valley of the Kings.
