EGYPT IN DEPTH SCENIC LUX­URY CRUISES & TOURS FROM $8995 A PER­SON TWIN SHARE (14 DAYS)

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Escape - - WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET EGYPT -

Since pharaoh days, Egyp­tians have cruised the Nile. Ex­pe­ri­ence its grandeur on lux­u­ri­ous Sanc­tu­ary Sun Boat III, with just 34 guests, cruis­ing from Luxor to Aswan. Kick it off in Giza with sun­down­ers over­look­ing the great pyra­mids, then come face-to-face with the stag­ger­ing fa­cade of the tem­ples of Ram­ses II and Queen Ne­fer­tari at Abu Sim­bel. Dur­ing the cruise, a res­i­dent Egyp­tol­o­gist will fill in the blanks while vis­it­ing the ar­chi­tec­tural mar­vels of Val­ley of the Kings, an­cient quar­ries, and Egypt’s fa­mous tem­ples. A felucca cruise, Nu­bian danc­ing and a colour­ful Gal­abeya party are all part of the fun; as is soak­ing up the magic of the Nile from the sun deck. Once you’ve dis­em­barked, visit the Red Sea and lesser-known Tem­ple of Hathor be­fore re­turn­ing to Cairo.
