  • Day 1

    Embarkation in Luxor

    Start your Merit Dahabiya Nile Cruise Tour

    When you travel with Egypt United Travel, we don't want you to have to worry about anything, and we've taken all the necessary precautions to make sure you won't have to.

    The tour manager who was allocated to you when you made your reservation for the trip will be waiting for you at the airport or train station when you arrive in Luxor to welcome you and offer any assistance that they can.

    Additionally, one of our drivers will be waiting outside in a spotless, contemporary, air-conditioned vehicle. After greetings, your tour manager and our driver will transport you to the location where you will board the luxury Merit Dahabiya Nile Cruise.

    You will check in once you embark, and your first aboard lunch will be provided about noon.

    The boat's resident chef will spoil you with a great variety of both Egyptian and international delicacies throughout your journey. All meals are made by him.

    After lunch, the first stop on your Merit Dahabiya Nile cruise itinerary is Luxor's East Bank, where you'll see the magnificent Luxor Temple and Karnak Temple.

    Although the massive size of the Karnak Temple complex makes it equally as impressive, if not more so, than Luxor Temple, which is by far the better preserved of the two.

    You will return to your opulent Dahabiya river yacht after your tour of these two locations, where you will have time to unwind before a sumptuous supper is served in the early evening.

    Your first sleep in your exquisitely furnished cabin on the water at Luxor will take place tonight.

  • Day 2

    Luxor's West Bank

    Luxor Day Tour

    After a full breakfast on day two of your Merit Dahabiya Nile Cruise tour, you'll go to Luxor's West Bank to explore three more outstanding ancient structures.

    This time, you will go to the Valley of the Kings, a sizable royal necropolis that has more than 60 historic tombs, among them King Tutankhamen's tomb.

    In addition, you will see the enormous Colossi of Memnon and the incredible rock-cut mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

    You will return to your Dahabiya in time for another expertly prepared lunch after a tour that you will almost likely never forget.

    After lunch, there won't be any more excursions planned for the day, so the boat will start sailing towards Esna.

    You should take advantage of this time to unwind or to engage in some bird watching.

    You could even take a soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, relax with a drink or a cocktail in the lounge or bar, or check in with loved ones online.

    Around 15h00, enjoy some afternoon tea on the sundeck of the boat.

    Dinner will be provided while you are sailing this evening, and as you get closer to Esna, the boat will slightly alter course and anchor next to a little island for the night.

  • Day 3

    Edfu City

    Edfu Temple

    The third day of your Merit Dahabiya Nile cruise itinerary begins early, allowing you to eat breakfast while your river yacht passes through the Esna Lock, which is a really pleasurable and educational event in and of itself.

    After passing through the Lock, you will begin sailing toward Edfu while enjoying a great lunch.

    The boat should reach Edfu depending on the wind just after noon, at which point it will be time for yet another beautiful excursion—this time to see Edfu Temple.

    A long time ago, the Romans abandoned this ancient Greco-Roman temple, which gradually became buried in the sand.

    Before it was found again, it stayed like way for more than 2,000 years.

    As a result, its level of preservation is truly astounding.

    After visiting the Edfu Temple, you will reboard your Dahabiya and travel to Al Ramady Island, where it will be moored for the night.

    Dinner will be given as normal in the evening, and this night you will spend cruising next to Al Ramady Island.

  • Day 4

    Sailing to Aswan

    Visit New Islands

    The fourth day of your Merit Dahabiya Nile cruise schedule starts early once more.

    It really is a great time to be out on the balcony if you are awake at this hour.

    Breakfast will be provided while you are sailing to Aswan via el Sheikh Fadl Island, where it will tie up for a while, at the customary time.

    As you sail, savour another delicious aboard lunch; shortly after you finish eating, you will arrive at the island.

    You will eat your afternoon tea and dinner on el Sheikh Fadl Island today rather than aboard the boat.

    You will board the river yacht once more after a delectable meal on the island, and it will continue sailing to Aswan where it will tie up for the night.

    Enjoy your final night on the water in Aswan as part of your itinerary for the Merit Dahabiya Nile River trip.

  • Day 5

    Aswan Day Tour

    Disembarkation from Dahabiya Nile Cruise

    It's unfortunate that this is the final day of your Merit Dahabiya Nile River cruise itinerary, but before you start to say goodbye, take time to enjoy another delicious breakfast and a thoroughly enjoyable tour to two beautiful locations.

    The ancient Philae Temple will be the first destination you see today. It was completely shifted to higher ground to protect it from Lake Nasser's increasing waters after the Aswan High Dam was built.

    The Aswan High Project itself will be your next stop. This dam essentially reshaped Egypt's present and future for all time.

    It will soon be time for you to go from the Merit Dahabiya and get your possessions.

    Depending on your plans for continuing your journey, we will once more be escorting you to the airport or train station when the time comes.

    We at Egypt United Tours really hope and believe that your cruise lived up to all of your expectations and more.

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip moving forward.
