SANC­TU­ARY SUN BOAT IV SANC­TU­ARY RE­TREATS $1356 A PER­SON TWIN SHARE (3 NIGHTS)

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

To visit Egypt and not spend at least a few nights on the Nile would be like go­ing to Paris and skip­ping the Eif­fel Tower. Step aboard the newly re­fur­bished Sanc­tu­ary Sun Boat IV for a jour­ney from Aswan to Luxor. You’ll visit the source of an­cient Egypt’s con­struc­tion – the stone quar­ries – and see the Un­fin­ished Obelisk and ma­jes­tic Phi­lae Tem­ple. In be­tween Egyp­tian cook­ing classes and an Egyp­tian Night cos­tume party, other high­lights in­clude the Tem­ple of Kom Ombo, ded­i­cated to the crocodile-god, Sobek, Tem­ple of Horus at Edfu, and the Tem­ple of Luxor – all guided by your per­sonal Egyp­tol­o­gist. In be­tween, soak up the enor­mity of it all on the teak and Egyp­tian mar­ble sun deck around the pool. The 36 cab­ins, in con­tem­po­rary tones with an Art Deco touch, have air­con­di­tion­ing, mini bar and TV.
