An unforgettable Egypt escape combining a five-star, all-inclusive beach resort with an adventurous River Nile cruise – includes travel and optional excursions

There’s no shortage of splendour on Egypt’s insanely famous Nile – the world’s longest river that stretches across a staggering 4,160 miles. As the true lifeblood of the country, traversing this mighty waterway is singularly the best way to get to grips with its revered monuments, iconic pyramids, striking temples, celebrated archaeological sites and ancient cities. So, it’s easy to see why this cruise-and-chill Egyptian adventure is perfect for those looking to combine cultural kicks with beach bliss.

You’ll take to the Nile’s mighty waters on MS Al Kahila – a five-star liner that wows with a great spa, outdoor pool and sundeck, lively bars and lounges, stylish dining, upscale accommodation and all-out comfort. Should you fancy adding on some eye-opening excursions, the cruise itinerary is nothing short of impressive too.

You’ll get the chance to visit the Valley of the Kings in the Theban Hills, kick back in the former frontier town of Aswan and admire the stunning temples at Luxor and Karnak. Equally thrilling is getting snap-happy at the Temples of Philae, High Dam and Colossi of Memnon, and wandering the temples at Abu Simbel that were famously dedicated to the Pharaoh Ramses and his beloved queen Nefertari.

Bookend your trip with a hefty dose of vitamin D and soak up some serious sunshine at the five-star Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort. As its name suggests, this palatial establishment will treat you like royalty from beginning to end. Two swimming pools, a splendid spa, tennis courts and top-notch cuisine will please even the most jaded of guests. For a true bucket-list experience, snorkel or dive in the glittering Red Sea, teeming with corals and colourful sea life.
