Nile cruise help please!

We are hoping to got on a Nile cruise next May for 7 days but have no idea where to start. We are on a budget but this doesnt mean we dont like our comforts!! We would like to see the pyramids too but not sure if any cruises would include this. Or would it be better to have a hotel and just vist the pyramids! Can anyone give us some good tips please?

1. Re: Nile cruise help please!

I'm afraid you are not going to see the pyramids from a Nile Cruise. 'The' Pyramids are at Giza, Cairo whilst the Nile Cruises are much further south in Upper Egypt and sail between Luxor and Aswan.

It is possible to do a three or four day cruise (one way trip) and perhaps visit Cairo for a couple of days.

I suggest you have a look at the Luxor forum where you will find lot's of posts about the cruises, visiting Cairo etc. Do have a look at the Top Questions for Luxor section on the right as many of your questions (that you haven't even thought of yet) will be answered there and many are relevent for Egypt in general, not specific to Luxor.
