Enchant your eyes with the charming Nile River Cruise tours in Egypt during our 4-Days Nile River Cruise from Aswan to Luxor aboard the deluxe Steigenberger Minerva Nile cruise ship. Visit the most significant ancient sites and tours in Egypt, like the Valley of Kings during Luxor West Bank Tours of the Nile River, which is a great burial ground for the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt during the new kingdom of Egypt history. After about 1500 B.C. the Pharaohs were no longer interested in building great pyramids like those in the Giza necropolis in which to be buried. Instead, most of them decided to be buried in rock-cut tombs in the Valley of the Kings as the final place where they rest in peace away from the tomb thieves.

But remember, you can always ask to join a group tour if available, this option will guarantee the reduction of the tour pricing as we mostly deal with private guided tours to assure the highest quality of service.
The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
From the date of booking until 46 days before your arrival date, 10% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 45 and 31 days before your arrival date, 20% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 30 and 15 days before your arrival date, 50% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 14 and 1 days before your arrival date, 100% of the entire tour price will be charged.
