Egypt's Timeless Riches

Nile cruises recall a more civilised age of travel, when the holiday journey was as much a source of pleasure as the destination. Our superb 7-night cruise takes its cue from these holidays of yesteryear, presenting the wonders of Egypt - its monumental temples and tombs, its bustling cities and a captivating riverside way of life little changed in centuries - as the ship makes its leisurely way from Luxor to Aswan and back.

7 nights from £1849pp

Egypt's Timeless Riches Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Luxor. On arrival we will be transferred to the Presidential Nile Cruise (4T) vessel for our seven-night cruise.

  • Day 2

    At the ‘open-air museum’ of Luxor the number and preservation of ancient monuments is unparalleled anywhere in the world. This is the site of the famous city of Thebes, capital of Egypt at the height of the empire’s influence. We head out to explore the West Bank, beginning at the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings, where pharaohs were buried from the 16th to the 11th century BC. Our guide introduces a few of the most impressive tombs and you may also choose to enter the plainer, ‘cursed’ Tomb of Tutankhamun (extra charge). We also visit the Valley of the Queens, the impressive mortuary temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon, before returning to the ship. We sail to Edfu and overnight.

  • Day 3

    There can be few more serene and romantic ways of passing time than gliding down the Nile on a river cruiser. We sail to the fascinating Greco-Roman double-temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the falcon-headed Horus and Sobek, the crocodile god. We return to the ship, ready to set sail southwards to Aswan.

  • Day 4

    Today pays tribute to feats of architectural engineering ancient and modern, with visits to the 111m-high Aswan High Dam, and the Temple of Philae, perhaps Egypt’s most beguiling and beautiful, not least for its setting on an island in the river. We also take in the Nubian Museum, a stunning showcase of Nubia’s history, art and culture, including horse armour.

  • Day 5

    Take the opportunity to explore the laid-back Nubian city of Aswan independently before an afternoon of relaxation aboard our vessel, as we sail to Edfu. Alternatively, choose to take an optional excursion by bus or plane to legendary Abu Simbel. We dock overnight in Edfu.

  • Day 6

    We continue the return journey along the Nile to Luxor.

  • Day 7

    This morning we visit two astonishing temples on the East Bank of the Nile - Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple. Karnak in particular is absolutely awe-inspiring; a complex of more than 100 hectares (larger than some ancient cities) with immense pylons and obelisks, tranquil lakes and sanctuaries and the Hypostyle Hall, where 134 soaring columns, each with a diameter of more than 3m, are arranged in perfect geometric rows, all covered in exquisite hieroglyphs.

  • Day 8

    Today we bid farewell to our cruise vessel and her crew and transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
