Seven or 10-night holiday with an opulent hotel stay and full-board Nile cruise, plus excursions and all travel

Spend seven or 10 nights soaking up the ancient beauty of Egypt, starting with three nights in Giza and ending with a dreamy Nile cruise, journeying in a luxury river boat, on a four or seven-night cruise past riverside villages, from one unique destination to another.

You'll spend three nights at the Mena House Oberoi - one of the most unique hotels in Cairo - with its own rich and colourful history. Surrounded by 40 acres of verdant green, jasmine-scented gardens, this palatial five-star hotel is just 700 metres away from the Great Pyramids of Giza in Cairo and offers unbeatable views. Regarded as one of the leading luxury hotels in Cairo, the hotel combines the magical charm of a bygone era with unrivalled service that's fit for royalty.

After your hotel stay, you'll transfer to Luxor/Aswan and meander lazily down the Nile on a four or seven-night luxury cruise aboard the MS Esplanade. A chic and luxurious ship, it offers fine dining, a full-service spa, a stylish open-air pool area and is the perfect base for a journey through Egypt's most exotic and ancient haunts.

You'll experience Luxor, a city built on the site of Ancient Thebes, where you'll visit the Valley of the Kings and the towering and Colossi of Memnon. Along the way, you'll discover Edfu, visit the Temple of Horus and explore Aswan, a beautiful city with thriving markets and tiny palm-fringed islands speckling the water.

We're offering you two unique options, both including a three-night stay at the Mena House Oberoi in a Premier Pyramid-View room with breakfast. You can either choose to add a four or a seven-night Nile Cruise on the MS Esplanade, in an Executive Cabin on a full-board basis (meaning that breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are all covered). Excursions and internal flights are included as well as return flights from London Heathrow and all transfers. For a glance at the two different cruise options, please see the itineraries below:
