You now have the ability to enjoy a luxurious cruise down the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. While itineraries will vary, you can expect to see things like the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Edfu. Your river cruise will include your meals, accommodations and friendly staff to help meet your needs. Here's a sample itinerary of a Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor.


Day 1: Your river cruise will start with you leaving Aswan. Beforehand you may have the opportunity to visit some local sites like Philae Temple and the High Dame. That night, on the boat you can enjoy an impressive dinner and a variety of onboard entertainment.


Day 2: On the second day of your voyage you can eat breakfast while looking over the water. You will get opportunity to stop and see the Kom Ombo Temple, which is dedicated to both the falcon God Haroeris and the crocodile God Sobek. This area is said to have been where sacred crocodiles would sun themselves. You will then continue on to the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus. Once back on the boat you will continue making your way to Luxor.


Day 3: When you rise you will notice that you are in Luxor. After breakfast you will be able to leave the boat and start exploring. Sites to see include the Necropolis of Thebes, the Colossi of Memnon, Valley of the Kings and Temple of Hatshepsut. You will find that there is a lot to take in. You can return to the ship when you are finished exploring and eat dinner or a swim in the pool before retiring to bed to enjoy your last night onboard.


Day 4: You will be departing on this day. However, you can still enjoy some sites like the Luxor Temple or the Karnak Temple before you head over to the airport or train station. Before leaving the ship, make sure you enjoy one last cup of tea or coffee and soak in the tranquil atmosphere.


This is just a sample itinerary of what you can expect on a river cruise down the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. No matter what itinerary you choose you will find that you can enjoy luxury accommodations, exquisite food and plenty of activities to keep you busy. Because these types of cruises take place on a smaller boat, you will have a more intimate atmosphere than you would on a larger cruise ship.
