Overview

Enjoy our Cairo and X-mas cruise 2020 package and find out the secrets of the stunning ancient Egyptian civilization! This Christmas tour package to Egypt allows you to discover the impressive Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, Memphis, which was the first-time Egyptian capital in history and the fantastic Step Pyramid Complex of King Zoser and more attractive Mastaba tombs at Sakkara.

We will also have time to sail down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, in order to explore the beaten tracks of both cities and see the marvelous temples, huge obelisks and extraordinary royal tombs! This is besides having the chance to explore the Aswan High Dam and have a full day tour to the Abu Simbel temples of Ramses II from the 19th dynasty in the ancient Egyptian history.

Cruising the immortal Nile River was and always will be one of the most remarkable activities one can do while visiting Egypt for few days! It allows you to feel like a Pharaoh, as you will follow the same route as our grandpas, in addition to having various entertainments and night activities while sailing from Luxor to Aswan or vice versa.

When we come back from Aswan, we will enjoy a very interesting tour in the city center of Cairo to visit the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities at the most-famous Tahrir Square, the Citadel of Saladin, the Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pacha inside the citadel, the Hanging Church and more Christian monuments at Old Cairo area, then have a lovely walking tour with a local soft drink at Khan El-Khalili Bazaar.

  • Enjoy a four-night cruise from Luxor to Aswan with daily tours to the treasures of the south.
  • Visit to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, Citadel of Saladin & Coptic Cairo sites.
