OUR 5 STAR NILE CRUISE BOAT
We sail the Nile, or the 'life-blood' of Egypt, on the 5 star Solaris 2. This boat has a small swimming pool, gift shop, restaurant, sundeck, and two bars. The en suite rooms on board have air conditioning and a wide picture window. Relaxing on the spacious upper deck and enjoying the beautiful views across the Nile is a truly memorable experience, and the reason why so many choose this as the way to travel in Upper Egypt.
Available on the following trips:
Nile Cruise (this page)
Egyptian Discover (page 66)
Egyptology (page 67)
All Nile Cruise itineraries include visits to the fascinating temples at Kom Ombo and Edfu. The exact sailing times may vary; 4 nights aboard (Luxor to Aswan) and 3 nights aboard (Aswan to Luxor) are guaranteed. On some dates we may use a different cruise boat but it will always be the same standard and have the facilities as detailed above.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Designed for people who are in good health, enjoy the outdoors and want a relaxing trip packed with interest.
Mixed Activities: Activities may range from the ordinary (for example walking, cycling or whitewater rafting) to the damn right extraordinary (including caving, camel riding or canyoning).
Culture: Let Exodus show you a different side to many of the world's greatest cultural attractions.
