This morning you will fly to Luxor, where you will board your boat for your cruise down the Nile. This is no huge cruise boat – rather, it is a small, intimate boat with only a few cabins – your very own Nile expedition. (Note – recommended for older children only. For families traveling with younger kids, we will build a hotel-based trip).
Luxor was once ancient Thebes, capital of Ancient Egypt. There are tons of ancient sites in and around the city as well as within the environs. In addition to visiting the world famous Valley of the Kings and Queens including the Tomb of Tutankhamen, and seeing the amazing temples of Luxor and Karnak, you will also see sites far less visited, as your boat will be able to berth in areas that are far too small for the large cruise boats.
