Rediscover the wonders of Egypt, from its monumental temples dotted along the Nile to the timeless Pyramids of Giza. Be one of the first to view the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo – built at a cost of $1billion – as Egypt enjoys a cultural renaissance.
It’s extraordinary to think that one country, less than a five-hour flight away, can offer so much – from enjoying a sundowner overlooking the pyramids to gazing at the colossal rock temple of Abu Simbel.
Step aboard one of our luxury Sun Boats and before you know it you could be descending the steps to Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Our exclusive fleet, from cruisers to a traditional dahabiya (sailing boat), enjoy private docking areas at Luxor and Aswan which are beyond the reach of other cruisers. Our Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau is today’s luxury dahabiya, effortlessly blending old-world elegance with modern comforts.
Stay at Hotel Sofitel Legend Old Cataract which inspired Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile, or start your travels at the riverside Four Seasons First Residence in Cairo.
Our English-speaking Egyptologists will lead you on a journey of discovery, sharing their knowledge and passion with you.
