Other companies include Longwood Holidays, Presidential Nile Cruises, Kuoni, Cosmos and Titan Travel etc, offering a wide selection of boats.
There are a number of options to add a hotel stay to a Nile cruise. You could perhaps add a 3 night stay in Cairo to make a 10 night holiday, or how about 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. While staying by the Red Sea there is the option to go diving, and even attain your PADI certificate. On some departures you could add a short cruise on Lake Nasser as well, as this is an amazing way to see Abu Simbel, and the main boats used are Eugenie, Kasr Ibrim & Prince Abbas. There are of course a lot more options, which we can discuss, to ensure that we find the best holiday for you.
There are usually 10 excursions included in the price of a 7 night Nile cruise and, while the selection can vary slightly from company to company, the following are generally included: – Colossi of Memnon, Valley of the Kings, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, 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 can be booked locally, and they generally include a sound & light show at one of the temples, a trip to Abu Simbel, a hot air balloon flight from Luxor, or the Pyramids & Sphinx if you go to Cairo.
Flights generally depart from Gatwick on a Monday, with some dates having the option of a Manchester departure, which could be a Wednesday. The 10 nights Cairo and Nile cruise, would need to be from Heathrow on a Monday or Friday.
