Afternoon we start sailing towards Esna city. The distance is around 55 km. Let’s enjoy with the beautiful views of the Egyptian countryside until we reach the lock of Esna, we pass through the lock and continue sailing to Edfu. The distance is around 65 km. Lunch & dinner on board. Overnight and evening entertainment program.

Visit to the temple of Edfu

In the morning after the breakfast we will visit Edfu temple of Horus, but to reach the temple we should catch a cab. The entire temple is embellished with wonderful reliefs. This is one of the most beautiful and certainly the best preserved of Egypt’s monuments. There is no ancient monument in the world that can match it.

After visiting the temple we will be back to the boat to continue sailing to Aswan. Let’s have lunch and dinner on board. Overnight and evening entertainment program in Aswan is available.

Then move behind the Dam to visit unique Nubian site known as New Kalabsha with its beautiful Kalabsha Temple (optional activity).

Our next goal will be a jewel of Upper Egypt, a beautiful small Philae island. To reach the extraordinary temple of Philae island we will sail by a feluca boat. The original monuments of the island was dismantled & re-erected on another island called Agilkai, slightly to the north of Philae. So, this is the place we are visiting these days.

Amazing Nile cruise holiday
5 / 5
John Darell , 21 Jan 2015
Booked our holiday of Nile cruises and Hurghada with a local agent in Egypt. It was considerably cheaper than the Holiday offered by our Thomas Cook. We were booked with Sharm Club & everything went without a hitch pick up from the airport & hotel on time no hitches at airport met by our guide Sharif in Cairo (he was superb so knowledgeable & helpful in every way)he is a great asset to your company. Had a fantastic day arriving back at our hotel exhausted but totaly fulfilled having seen the Pyramids The Sphinx The Egyption Muesem had a ride on a Faluca on the nile & a guided tour of the old Bazar.What a day For Grandad Grandma Son & three Grandaughters age 6-9-& 11,We have many fantastic photos taken by Sharif to remember our trip. We had our fantastic guide Ahmed during the cruise, he was also very friendly, informative and sense of humor, we have visited many amazing sites in Luxor, the valley of the kings, karank & Luxor temple. We stayed also in Aswan, it was a fantastic sightseeing there and we enjoyed the Nile views. I Highly Recomend Sharm Club To All.
