The wonders of ancient Egypt on a Nile cruise

The cradle of civilisation. If anywhere has a real claim to that title, it’s the Nile basin. Given enough time, this snake of a river will take you from Cairo right down to Luxor to Aswan, but most people just visit the final two locations.

The Egyptian capital is a bustling city where you can explore the souks and bazaars; but what truly sets the city apart is that the last remaining Wonder of the World, the Great Pyramid of Giza, lies 12 miles away. Giza is a sight like no other to watch the sun coming up and flooding the site of the pyramids with light. There you really can feel a connection to the past that you won’t feel anywhere else. The Sphinx, so majestic, has watched over visitors for thousands of years and by night, a sound and light show make the pyramids shimmy with colours.

Further south, the temples of Luxor – one, the setting for a famous scene in The Spy Who Loved Me – show all the religious grandeur of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs. Huge columns, massive carved stone statues of people and animals. You can walk through these huge buildings – or what’s left of them – and picture the scene as they teemed with people. On the other side of the river is the Valley of the Kings, the burial place of the pharaohs, where you can descend into the chambers and have the stories and hieroglyphs on the wall explained by your guide.

Your last stop is Aswan, an ancient town that begs to be explored. There are more ancient, fascinating tombs to enter, and don’t miss the Philae Temple, which was built 3,000 years ago in honour of the goddess Isis and is just as splendid today as it ever was.

Istanbul + Cappadocia + Gulet Cruise

Destination: Istanbul, Cappadocia & Mediterranean Cruise
Book your 3 centre Istanbul + Cappadocia + Gulet Cruise with us this summer. 14 Nights from £1829 per person This fantastic trip includes the following: • All flights with Turkish Airlines (including meals and drinks in-flight) • 3 nights at 4* Empire Palace Hotel in Istanbul – centrally located • 4 nights at 4* MDC Cave Hotel Cappadocia • 3 regular Cappadocia day tours with professional guide and with transfers. (Hot air balloon rides are optional from £159 per person) • 7 night’s Deluxe Gulet Cruise on board Semercioglu IV on an all-inclusive basis • Private transfers at all 3 centres Sitting on the banks of the Bosphorus is spectacular Istanbul, divided by the Golden Horn. A colourful and historic city that is great for city breaks and can easily entertain longer stays. Magical Cappadocia’s landscape was formed around 30 million years ago when volcanic activity left the region blanketed with ash. The ash solidified into what is known as ‘volcanic tuff’, this is an easily eroded material and as it wore away over many years, it left the distinctive rock formations seen in Cappadocia today. Gulet Cruises in Turkey are a fabulous experience in a beautiful region of the world. Turkey’s coastline is the longest in the Mediterranean. Taking an authentic Gulet Cruise is the perfect way to explore it, meandering at a slow pace and stopping off en route. This is a great way to explore the region’s many hidden treasures and sleepy backwaters, enjoying perfect serenity at sea and making friends along the way. We offer a range of carefully selected itineraries which visit the most unspoilt parts of the region, allowing you to experience the local culture and explore ancient ruins.
