About
Explore the ancient culture of Luxor and Aswan and the beauty of the River Nile.The Nile was the lifeline of ancient Egyptian civilization and today the banks of the river are dotted with ancient tombs and temples. Lying 420 miles south of Cairo, Luxor is the most dramatic historical site in Egypt - and is often referred to as the world’s greatest open air museum. Luxor is the modern day name for Thebes, the ancient capital city of the New Kingdom Pharaohs. Today, Luxor is home to more than half of Egyptian antiquities and is a must-see destination for any visitor to Egypt. Aswan is the “Jewel of the Nile”. Pink and grey granite thrusts upward through the Nubian sandstone, forming mountains, cliffs and jagged outcrops. The Nile runs clear and cold here, and endless waves of golden sand swirl against its banks.

It is my first time in Egypt and doing a cruise. The cruce is really clean and well organized and offered many amenities. Management was very professional and Always was making sure we where taking care of. I had to get some ibuprofen for my leg and the Doctor provided what I needed I had the opportunity to have a massage with Hanna which is an amazing human being, as well as beautiful and has magic hands that makes you feel amazing. The person at the bazaar was very polite and friendly. I also love the food served in the restaurant. I want to emphasize all the waiters were SUPER efficient, friendly and made sure I we were served the special hot sauce the chef made for me and brother in law.The cleaning personnel were polite and had our rooms super organized and clean. The crew out side the cruise was reliable. All the drivers that took us everywhere where safe and respectful at all times and made sure we had something to drinks at all times. The hotels we stayed in were amazingly beautiful and comfortable and had good service.
SHIMMA Esmail was assigned to us to be our tourist guide. There is a list that I made about her.
Very polite, Her attitude was very positive and friendly. She is very,very knowledgeable Always made sure we were given lots information. She took us to inexpensive places as well to local places to eat. All of us ladies went to the local vendors and expensive place to shop everything we wanted to purchase. She is a person that is good at heart and knows lots of good history information. I would highly recommend your family to experience this amazing service through out or trip. I would HIGHLY recommend SHIMMA for her service and becoming our sister st heart. This had been and expectacualr serve from beginning and end of our amazing family group. These had been an amazing experience her in Egypt Cairo.

10/10! With Shimaa! 💖
Sep 2021 • Family
Our tour guide was Shimaa Esmail. She was absolutely the best, we had an amazing time with her. She made us laugh and taught us many things. The trip itself was great the cruise was clean, luxurious and everyone was very nice. Although our trip seemed rushed and we were exhausted almost everyday we had a great time together. We have so many positive things to say about our tour guide, she was very helpful and took care of us, I recommended her!!!

Amazing trip. Definitely a 5 star experience!
Sep 2021 • Solo
This entire experience was amazing!! The room was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the service on the ship was excellent! My guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable and had the perfect advice to make the trip very enjoyable. And he took the best pictures!! He gave me the perfect advice on when we should leave to each place to avoid the large crowds, as these places can get pretty crowded! The hot air balloon ride was also amazing. I’ve gone all over the world and this was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to visit again!

Exceeded our expectations
Aug 2021 • Couples
We selected this cruise based on reviews that were left. I am very happy to say that we were not disappointed. We initially inquired quotes and were assisted by Hany, Hany was extremely helpful with questions and accommodations and assured us that we were in good hands.

When we arrived in Luxor, we were greeted at the airport by michael, who was our guide the entire trip. Michael was hands down the best guide we could have possibly asked for, he was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and willing to answer any question and take photos 😄, but above all we could definitely see that he was truly passionate about the history of his amazing country. I learned SO much from Micheal and feel that I could not have had the experience that I had, had it not been for him.

As far as the cruise goes, it was very comfortable. The crew were very friendly and willing to accommodate in ANY way that they could.. the chef heard that I was a fan of Koshuri and with out asking walked up and let us know that he would make it for us the next day. To his promise he did and it was delicious. We also purchased a few pieces from the cruise jeweler, very friendly and reasonable priced.

To sum it up, I would 100% recommended this cruise, but be sure to request Michael as your guide! I honestly can say that he made our experience as memorable as out was!

Trip of a Lifetime
Jun 2021 • Friends
I just returned from a 10 day family vacation to Egypt that my sister booked.

For the 5 day Nile Cruise we had the most incredible guide Shimaa Esmail, an amazing Egyptologist who has a deep love for Egypt and it definitely shows. We started with a day touring Luxor with Shimaa, and she even took us to one of her favorite local restaurants, before boarding our cruise. We had the best crew and captain who feed us the most authentic Egyptian food that everyone loved. The boat was gorgeous and the crew and captain were amazing! We ended our time in Upper Egypt with Shimaa giving us a tour of Abu Simbel.

This was such an amazing experience and the best way to see Egypt. Our guide Shimaa made the trip so memorable and the crew on the boat treated us like royalty. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Everything was just perfect. When we landed at Luxor our personal guide (cheers to Yasser, the best guide ever) was waiting for us. Nice brand new car, provided us with cold water every day. We did all the program and even had time for some more experiences. Our guides explanations were perfect, clear, complete and interesting.
The ship was great, above our expectations. Suite was big, the balcony great, the food on board was GREAT, the staff was friendly and helpfull... We really had an amazing experience and would totally recommend. We really wished to stay for longer on board.
To be honest, 10/10 for us.

A dream trip down the Nile
May 2021
I can't say enough good things about Luxor and Aswan Travel. I don't usually book through travel agencies, but this was a last-minute trip and we were considering a number of boats, so it seemed simpler to go through a single point of contact.

I'm so glad we did! Hany was incredibly, incredibly helpful the entire way through, including arranging for onboard PCR testing and working with Sanctuary Retreats to allow us to stay an extra half day while waiting for our flight out. He was very communicative leading up the trip and very responsive via WhatsApp during. Amazing service -- thank you, Hany.

Our guide, Shimaa Esmail, was a total rock star. Instantly welcoming and warm, extremely charming, very knowledgeable. Our itinerary wasn't identical to the rest of the boat's; while we stopped at all the same sites, I think that ours was, frankly, much better paced. We started the tour immediately after landing in Aswan and then did Karnak and Luxor on our last morning, vs. the afternoon before, which meant a much more leisurely pace and plenty of time to recover by the pool. Shimaa brought so much color to the sites and made great recommendations throughout -- which tombs to see, what sites to add (Medinet Habu was incredible!). We were so, so lucky to have been assigned to her. We loved you, Shimaa!

All in all, a fantastic trip made possible by a phenomenal agency.

Epic Egypt Adventure

Fabulous trip of a lifetime with Luxor and Aswan Travel! If you are planning a trip to Egypt, I would highly recommend this outfitter. The guides were exceptional and had incredible depth and breadth of knowledge of the Ancient Egyptian culture and history. The tombs, temples, pyramids, monuments, museums, etc. are AMAZING and you will not find anything like them anywhere in the world. And the best way to see all of these Egyptian treasures is definitely by cruising the Nile River.
