Nile Cruise Hurghada – 7 Days

Nile Cruise Hurghada HIGHLIGHTS:

Hit the highlights of Egypt on this tour, and enjoy the sites by Nile and Sea: Begin in Aswan to visit the Philae Temple and Aswan High Dam before boarding a multi-day cruise along the Nile, with stops in Kom Ombo and Edfu. Then, disembark and transfer to Hurghada on the Red Sea for a beach day at the Red Sea.

Program:

Day 1: Cairo to Aswan – Cruise in Aswan

Early morning, your travel representative help transfer you in time for your short flight to Aswan. This small city in the Nile Valley is located south of Cairo. Once you arrive in Aswan, you will make your way to your cruise ship. This unforgettable cruise includes visiting many of the major sights in Aswan.

Today’s sightseeing includes:

Aswan High Dam: Built in the 1960s and completed in 1970. Aswan Dam was formally inaugurated in 1971 and was an engineering marvel at the time due to it changing the landscape of Egypt by increasing cultivable land by 30 percent and doubling its electricity supply.

Philae Temple: There were once temples at Philae (construction began in 690 BC) dedicated to the goddess Isis. The complex was moved from its original location on Philae Island to Agilkia Island due to the construction of Aswan High Dam. You’ll board a small boat to learn more about the temple here.
