From 7th June 2013 you will be able to fly from Manchester to Cairo for 3 nights in a hotel, followed by a 7 night Nile cruise, from just £1,199 per person.
You will have 3 nights in Cairo on a bed and breakfast basis, giving you plenty of time to visit the Pyramids, Sphinx and Museums, and these excursions can be booked locally. You will then have a 7 night Nile cruise on a full board basis, which includes 10 excursions to places such as the Valley of the Kings, the Colossi of Memnon, and the Temples of Luxor, Karnack & Philae. Optional excursions on the cruise include Abu Simbel and a hot air balloon flight. It might well entail a final night in Cairo before flying home back to Manchester, making it an 11 night holiday in total.
Flight times are convenient for those living in the North, as you depart from Manchester at 2.30pm, and arrive back in Manchester @ 1.30pm.
It is possible to take the same holiday, but with the cruise first, for the same price, departing from Heathrow every Friday.
