4 Days 3 Nights Aswan to Luxor Nile Cruise
4 reviews
Some sightseeing tours pack too many sights into the allotted time, making you feel super rushed. This 4-day Aswan and Luxor Nile cruise is a great alternative because it spaces out attractions so you feel like you get ample time at each. Explore popular places such as Philae, the Aswan Dam, the Temple of Kom Ombo, the Temple of Edfu, and Karnak.

Abu Simbel was amazing! It was an extra cost and we had to get up at 5 am for the 30 min short flight from Aswan, but totally worth it. A highlight of my trip.

Oct 2018. It was my most fav attraction of Egypt and well worth the journey of 3 hrs one way from the Nile Cruise Liner. It's simply jaw dropping to see the magnificent statues right in front of the vast ocean. Fabulous is an understatement.

Abu Simbel was on my must-see list long before I left the US. Our group had one free day available in Aswan during our Gate 1 Nile River cruise. The question was drive or fly? Rather than join the convoy of vehicles that leaves Aswan around 4 am for the 3 ½ hour drive, we

It is amazing to think first of the ancient Egyptians building this and the technology to get the sun to shine on the faces of the gods at sunrise twice a year. Then to think that in the 60's the temple was taken apart and moved to its current location due to Lake Nasser being
