Loads and loads of boats moor along the Corniche in Luxor itself.

Popular with English people seem to be the 'Magic' boats from Flash Tours and the Travco/Jaz boats which Thomson and the like use. The latter ones are usually very nice, I've sailed on several of them. But I had occasion, a year or two ago, to be regularly involved with Cosmos passengers from the Flash boats, and they were always very happy with them too.

To a great extent, it will depend on which vessels are operating at the time, who knows whether tourism will pick up by then to warrant more of them sailing?

Good luck,

In March of this year we did a Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Our boat was the MS Dolphin. It was very nice and the food was good. The staff was very nice. We upgraded to a suite which gave us more room. There are only two suites on the boat. I don't know if there are more luxurious boats, but the MS Dolphin was certainly adequate for our needs.

The Ra 1 and 2 have their own private dock in Luxor.

Discover Egypt Boats - the Viking Princess and Royal Viking now have their own dock which is just out of Luxor close to the bridge.

Most of the boats moor up alongside the Corniche. If you want a really special boat the Jaz Regency is superb!! You can book this through Thomson.
