If you feel like visiting Upper Egypt, we invite you to the Nile Cruise. An old Egyptian proverb says “Egypt as a gift of the Nile”. The Egyptians have for centuries owed their existence to the Nile River. The area around the Nile accumulates many monuments. A Nile cruise is a great way to learn about the history of Egypt. Cruise ships stop in the most interesting areas from Luxor to Aswan. The duration of the trip is 5 days and 4 nights or 7 days and 6 nights. For groups of about 6 people, we organize cruises on the Nile with a 5 * luxury ship.

Arrival in Hurghada. Accommodation in a 5 * hotel, All Inclusive option

Near the city center there are remains of sandstone temples dedicated to the deities of Nechbet iThoth. A place for people fascinated by ancient culture, extraordinary.
Lunch will be served on a boat or on a calm, green shore of the island. We will also spend the night here.
