Private Tour: 8 Days 7 Nights Pyramids & Nile Cruise with Flights from Cairo
16 reviews
With so much to see on traditional 3-night Nile cruises there’s little time to enjoy the ship. This 5-star, 7-night cruise features three days’ guided sightseeing but leaves plenty of time to laze on the sundeck, enjoy the food, or explore independently. Depart from Aswan or Luxor, travel via Kom Ombo and Edfu to Luxor or Aswan, then return. Your tour includes meals, private transfers, and a costume party.

Well worth the stop, great views! You can spend 1.5 hours walking around the site pretty easy. There are pretty straight forward instructions how to get around the site. There is some uneven ground towards the top, so be careful if you have problems walking on uneven ground.
