Immerse yourself in the spirit of 1920s exploration on this seven-day River Nile journey. Egypt has long fascinated the worldly traveller, and if there were a golden age of travel, it could be traced to the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, and further still to the publication of the first Egypt guidebook in 1835. Step back to those times and stay in a plush riverside winter retreat of the Egyptian royal family, enjoy full-board hospitality sailing the Nile on an elegant dahabiya (the Nile houseboat of yore), visit colourful Nubian villages still alive with ancient cultures, and explore must-see ancient sites such as the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Karnak. Retracing the footsteps of the great explorers, this limited edition Upper Egypt adventure shines a light on Nile life like no other.
