Best Nile Cruises

From about 1500 B.C., the pharaohs were no more interested in building large pyramids like those at Giza Necropolis where they could be buried. Instead, most of them decided to be buried in rock-cut tombs in the Valley of the Kings as the last place they would rest in peace away from grave robbers. Ramses II and the golden king Tutankhamun are among the most famous kings to be buried here, the double temple of the God Sobek at Kom Ombo, also book an optional excursion to see the rock-cut temple of Abu Simbel, or experience the Hot Air Balloon Ride Above Luxor, the world's largest outdoor museum.

Itinerary

Upon arrival at Luxor airport or Luxor train station, our representative will transfer you to your MS Steigenberger Minerva luxury cruise ship in a private air-conditioned vehicle. In the afternoon, you will discover the east bank of Luxor, including the Karnak temple complex, which is the largest structure ever built in human history. The main building is that of the god Amun Re, as it was considered the god's home on earth. The oldest structure dates back to the Middle Kingdom, but there are some references to older buildings such as the 3rd Dynasty. Later, you will visit Luxor Temple, which was built by one of the 12th Dynasty kings and completed by the famous King Ramses II. This temple was located in the heart of ancient Thebes and, like Karnak, was dedicated to the main god Amun Re. After completing your day's tour, you will be transferred to your boat for rest and refreshment. In the evening, an Egyptian folkloric show will be organized by the staff. Dinner will be served and you will spend the night in Luxor.

Then you will go to the temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir El Bahari. This temple is considered one of the most beautiful examples of ancient Egyptian architecture, as it was carved entirely out of the mountain. At the end of the tour, you will visit the Colossi of Memnon, which belongs to King Amenhotep III. After that, you will return to your boat to have your lunch. Afternoon free.

In this case, the bank transfer must be made within 2 working days of purchase. - By phone: this option only applies for last-minute bookings on the same day or the day before and works only with the day tours, half-day tours, and activities that are not more than one day tour.
It can happen when only a few seats are available and many customers book the offer at the same time. 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.
