Choose a complete vacation package or simply a Nile cruise with private shore excursions. Blue Danube Holidays offer airport transfers, accommodation and private tours in Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Alexandria, Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, Abu Simbel and Denderah. We can organize your internal flights or sleeper trains as well as your Nile cruise. We will design an itinerary to meet your individual interests, needs and travel dates. If you are just looking for a premium Nile cruise, you will find that here too.
We work with a local guide team established in 1934. Our clients are delighted with the level of customer service, attention to detail and knowledge their tour guides offer. A private tour offers so much more local insight and it can be tailored to the client’s interest and energy level. We cater to solo vacationers to Egypt, couples, families and large groups.
If you are coming to Egypt for a Nile Cruise don’t miss Cairo. It is worth an extra couple of days to explore the Pyramids and Sphinx at the Giza Plateau along with Memphis and Sakkara. Spare at least half a day to visit the Egyptian Museum (moving from the city to a purpose built Giza location in 2020). The Egyptian Museum holds the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in the world including the Tutankhamun treasures. The Khan El Khalili is one of the oldest and greatest markets in the Middle East. The Saladin Citadel was built in the 12th century and was the seat of government for 700 years. You can the minaret of the Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali, from any part of the city.
We highly recommend a trip to Abu Simbel. Here you will see the colossal temple of Ramses II and the smaller temple dedicated to his favorite Queen Nefertari. The temple was saved from flooding during construction of Lake Nasser by painstakingly relocating both temples one block at a time. Abu Simbel can be reached from Aswan by road or by air. By road it’s around 3 hours each way and by air from Aswan it’s a 45- minute flight. This excursion can be added to the start or end of your Nile cruise.
