Overview
Explore the ancient culture of Luxor and Aswan and the beauty of the River Nile.The Nile was the lifeline of ancient Egyptian civilization and today the banks of the river are dotted with ancient tombs and temples.

Lying 420 miles south of Cairo, Luxor is the most dramatic historical site in Egypt - and is often referred to as the world’s greatest open air museum. Luxor is the modern day name for Thebes, the ancient capital city of the New Kingdom Pharaohs. Today, Luxor is home to more than half of Egyptian antiquities and is a must-see destination for any visitor to Egypt.

Aswan is the “Jewel of the Nile”. Pink and grey granite thrusts upward through the Nubian sandstone, forming mountains, cliffs and jagged outcrops. The Nile runs clear and cold here, and endless waves of golden sand swirl against its banks.
