Kuoni Nile Cruises 2011
Cruising down the Nile is a wonderful experience and a great way to see Egypt, and Kuoni have a great deal of experience in organising Nile cruises. Here are the types of Kuoni Nile cruises for 2011.
Traditional Nile cruising
Many people take a Nile cruise for the whole of their holiday, and this is an excellent idea, as you can see a great deal of Egypt this way. Kuoni has three ships which do this kind of cruise, the MS Darakum, MS Sunray, and Oberoi Zahra. All are very comfortable, and have all the facilities you would expect in a cruise ship - although of course they are smaller than ocean going vessels.
Nile cruises start in Aswan, in the South of Egypt, and you may get to visit the Aswan Dam. They then go down to Luxor, visiting places en route like The Philae Temple, Kom Ombo Temples, and the Temple of Horus at Edfu. There is lots to see and do in Luxor itself, including the famous temples of Karmak and the Valley of the Kings.
Kuoni Nile cruise and stay
With Kuoni you can combine a Nile cruise with a stay in either Cairo or Luxor. Cairo has all the bustle and excitment of a big city, and of course you can visit the famous pyramids and the Sphynx. As explained above, there is plenty to see in Luxor. You can also combine a Nile cruise with a stay in the Red Sea coastal resort of Sharm el Sheikh.
Tailor Made holidays
Kuoin will also combine a Nile cruise with any other type of travelling you would like to do in Egypt, and arrange a tailor-made itinerary for you.
