8 Day Cairo and Nile Cruise

From 1099 pounds per person.

Many of our Nile Cruise clients would also like to visit Cairo to see the wonders of The Pyramids and The Sphinx whilst in Egypt but unfortunately most Nile cruises begin and end in Luxor and last for a full week.

However with this special 8 day tour you get the best of both worlds. You will cruise the Nile whilst having the opportunity to spend time in Cairo to enable you to see The Pyramids, The Sphinx, The Egyptian Museum and the fabulous sights and sounds of Cairo.
