Cruising down the Nile river is the quintessential way to explore Egypt.

The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that, “Egypt was the gift of the Nile”.  Indeed, it was the annual overflowing of the Nile that granted Egypt her fertility and prosperity, and for millennia the river was considered the holy source of life itself.   Throughout this time, traders and travellers have sailed the Nile, but towards the end of the nineteenth century it was the British tour operator Thomas Cook who brought new steam technology to create the sophomoric Nile Cruise.

Although Egypt’s treasures and wonders can be explored by land expedition, those wishing to experience this classic form of voyage can sail from Aswan to Luxor, or vice versa.  Here at Pomegranate we are familiar with the pros and cons of each of the several options, and we look forward to sharing our expertise with you.   Below we have listed our preferred engined river boats, all of which have set schedules and itineraries, but we can provide you with your own guide when you sail for a more personalised and tailored experience:
