This delightful holiday allows us to explore some of Egypt's best-known archaeological treasures, located along a historic stretch of the River Nile to the south of our point of arrival at Luxor. Sailing downstream from Aswan to Luxor in traditional feluccas provides a relaxing and authentic way to experience the magic of the Nile. There is lots of time to get to know our Egyptian and Nubian team and to marvel at the way of life of the local people. Taking every opportunity to go ashore to do some walking, we will visit colourful Nubian villages, stroll amongst groves of date palms and explore monuments dating from the time of the Pharaohs. Combining day walks and a felucca trip, with plenty of opportunity for sightseeing amongst ancient temples and tombs, this is the perfect holiday for a first-time visit to Egypt.
