Must do experiences and highlights along the Nile
Life on the Nile
Immerse yourself in Egyptian life on the Nile, don traditional dress (galabeyas) and enjoy an evening of local delicacies, music and dance on board.
Temple of Horus, Edfu
An entrance marked by an enormous wall inlaid with carvings and flanked by two flacon sculptures is a fitting welcome to this impressive site.
Feluccas and Flora
Sail on a traditional felucca to Kitchener’s Island, where the stunning botanical gardens flourish with exotic plants creating a lush oasis on the Nile.
Temple of Kom Ombo
Standing sentinel on a bend in the Nile, this temple complex is dedicated to two gods, Horus the falcon god and Sobek the crocodile god. Honouring Sobek, you’ll find mummified crocodiles amidst the other ancient artefacts.
Luxor at First Light
Luxor’s ancient temples and monuments are incredible at any time, explored any way. But there is a certain magic to floating over this landscape by hot air balloon as the sun lights up the open air museum below.

What our clients are saying about their journeys through Egypt
“Best of Egypt”
Great destination, amazing history and sightseeing. Archaeologically significant experience. River cruise was great, good opportunity to experience the Nile and the ports along the way.
This trip was everything I wanted and hoped it would be! :-) Thank you so much for suggesting this trip and making it work for us. The itinerary was very full but covered everything we wanted to see and more. The bus, the boat and the most of the accommodations were great - friendly, clean and courteous. Our guide was absolutely fantastic! He made our trip! His knowledge, explanations, consideration, help and friendliness made everything that was great even better! My one complaint was the Hilton ...read more Ramses. It was crowded, noisy and an unwelcoming place. From a wedding in full cry in reception, overcrowding and not enough tables for guest numbers at breakfast, early checkouts made very difficult by slow and overcrowded lifts, men physically pushing and shoving in crowded public areas (reception and into/out of lifts). This is no reflection on the trip itself but certainly is a criticism of the hotel.
We did the 9 day Nile Valley Highlights small group tour with Peregrine. Overall the tour was great. Our guide, Hoda, was absolutely brilliant. Everything was organised perfectly and Hoda was extremely efficient and planned everything to a tee. We also had a very good group of people that we travelled with. Seeing the ancient sights of Egypt was amazing. It certainly isn't a "luxury" tour (I don't really think Egypt does luxury very well) but had some unique experiences (especially the overnight ...read more train ride to Luxor!!). For the price the overall experience was amazing and would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the main sights of Egypt.
“Best of Egypt & Turkey”
Very well organised tour. Extremely knowledgeable guides that enjoyed sharing their expert wealth of experience with us. Every detail was taken care of which made the trip extremely enjoyable. The small group ensured the group dynamics were good which led to lots of banter and laughter during the trip and some enduring friendships.
