Our first stop is the Sanctuary Sun Boat IV on the Nile River, offering cruises between Luxor and Aswan. The Nile River has been Egypt’s lifeline for centuries, with civilization’s relics lining its banks, like the Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, and Valley of the Kings. The boat’s guided tours are by Egypt’s leading Egyptologists, who’ll guide you through visits to ancient wonders like Luxor, the temples of Isis and Kom Ombo, and the jewel of the Nile, Aswan. Accommodations on the boat have designer interiors reflecting modern aesthetics and Egyptian character and they offer exquisite dining options with a variety of cuisines catered to meet all dietary needs. If you want to make the most of your visit, opt for a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Luxor for breathtaking views of the Nile and its monuments.

The accommodations on the cruise are luxurious and intimate, with a few select cabins and suites for a personalized experience. During your stay, make sure you take a felucca ride at sunset around Aswan for a tranquil experience of the Nile’s beauty.

However, there is still more to enjoy while cruising with their sophisticated restaurant, late-night Club Lounge, Library, and Cigar Lounge, which offers international and local cuisines.
