Important things to note

Tours can be a combination of different regular tours and therefore coach changes may be required.

Cruise itineraries and cruise vessels are subject to change without notice.

Excursions on the cruise vessel are not private and are with a group.

Esna Lock closes periodically for maintenance throughout the year. As a result a transfer by coach is provided between Esna and Luxor. Although Sun Island Tours endeavours to advise passengers of this prior to departure it is not always possible.

Hotel rooms may not be available for check-in before 2:00 p.m.

Recommend!!

Review for: Magnificent Nile

I absolutely recommend this tour for anyone who wants a truly memorable experience exploring Egypt! Everything was perfect and was far more than what we expected. Everything was taken care of and organized very well. It was the perfect mix of luxury travel and getting the local experience. Visiting the sites and museums in a more private environment was a real VIP experience and my favorite part was getting to visit a local Nubian home. Definitely recommending this to everyone I know and we are already talking about going back with our kids someday.

Thank you

Review for: Nile Discovery

After a representative assisted me through the arrival process (I could highly recommend this company for that alone). It was late, I was tired, and he handled everything quickly to get me to my hotel. I met up with Max the next day. He was so knowledgeable and made me feel like royalty. My own personal bodyguard/ photography/ Egyptologist. He went above and beyond.
