Egypt journey combines land tour with cruise on the Nile


Discover the treasures of ancient Egypt on on a 13-day tour and cruise that combines a visit to Cairo with a six-night cruise on the Nile aboard the 42-passenger ship Oberoi Philae.

The Lindblad Expeditions trip marks the company’s return to the region and will include a visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo as well as sites along the Nile, such as Abu Simbel and Giza.

In Luxor, participants will visit Karnak and Luxor temples; they will also explore the Valley of the Kings and see the tombs of Tutankhamen, Seti I and Nefertari. In Aswan, the group will visit the island temple of Philae and the Nubian Museum, drink afternoon tea at the Old Cataract Hotel and sail on a felucca.


In Abu Simbel, they will visit the two temples built by Ramses II that were disassembled and moved, block by block, to higher ground when the Nile was dammed at Aswan.
