A magnificent full-board Nile cruise and all-inclusive sunning at a sprawling five-star Hurghada resort – includes all travel

There’s no shortage of splendour on Egypt’s insanely famous Nile – the world’s longest river that runs for 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 14-day dual adventure is perfect for those looking to combine cultural kicks with beach bliss.

You’ll take to the Nile’s mighty waters on MS Commodore – a five-star liner that wows with a great pool, lively bars and lounges, stylish dining, upscale accommodation and all-out comfort. 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, take a trip on a triangular-sailed boat known as a felucca, 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.

Once you’ve had your fix of iconic death masks, centuries-old treasures and mummified remains, you'll round off your Egyptian adventure in the gorgeous Red Sea resort of Hurghada, spending seven nights 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.
