Luxor and Aswan

Luxor and Aswan , two ancient cities on the banks of the Nile in Upper Egypt , are best toured by taking a Nile cruise and sailing from one to the other while enjoying the extremely beautiful landscape and learning about one of the world's richest civilizations - the ancient history of the Pharaohs - by visited their temples and tombs.

Linked by a two-mile-long avenue of ramheaded sphinxes, the Luxor and Karnak temples on the east bank leave an overwhelming impression of beauty and sophisticated architecture.

Sailing from Luxor to Aswan , visit Edfu and Komombo – stopping at each to admire the local temples - and the Philae Temple in Aswan itself.
