Luxor – Aswan – Luxor Nile Cruise Tour 8 Days / 7 Nights
8 Day(s)
Combine a week of relaxation and some of the best sightseeing in the world with a Nile Cruise.
In this Program you start the trip from Luxor City. You visit Luxor Sightseeing such as the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Colossi of Memnon, Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple. Then the Nile Cruise Sail to Aswan. On the Way the Nile Cruise Stops at Edfu City to visit Edfu Temple and at Kom Ombo City to visit Kom Ombo Temple. . At the End the Nile Cruise Arrive to Aswan.  In Aswan you visit the High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk, Philae Temple and Felucca Ride in the Nile around Aswan Islands. Then the cruise boat sailing return to Luxor.
However there are also very few Nile Cruises that make it in reverse order from Aswan to Luxor. In our Opinion this is the Ideal Program for a Nile Cruise Trip.

Gratuities and Tipping:

How much is the average Tipping and when to give it?
Nile Cruise Crew:

On Average there are about 50 to 70 people working in the Nile Cruise boat. The Guest sees only 5 or 7 persons of the crew. So it is unfair to give tips to people that you see and forget other people. That’s why there is a rule in all Nile Cruises that Guest should not pay any tips for anyone during the Nile Cruise Trip. All Tips must be given at the end of your trip. You put your tips in an envelope and write the amount on the back then leave it at the Reception of your Nile Cruise. All Tips will be collected from clients and divided to the whole Cruise Staff. This is a Fair solution for everyone.

The Tips is about 3 to 5 US$ Per Person per Night. For Example, if you are 2 Person and having a 7 Nights accommodation in Nile Cruise your Tip Amount will be:

4 US$ x 7 Nights x 2 Person = 56 US$.

So you Leave 56 US$ in an Envelope at the Reception on the End of your Nile Cruise Trip.

For The Drivers, Representatives and Guides:

The following amounts are Recommended and on a Per Person Basis (in American Dollars USD).

Luxor Representative 3 to 5 US$

Aswan Representative 3 to 5 US$

Guides 5 to 7 US$ (Per Day)

Drivers 3 US$ (Per Day)

Horse Carriage in Edfu 4 US$ per Carriage

Please Note:

Tips are not an obligation on you. It is redemption for a good service. However wages in Egypt are very low. So most people depend on tips to survive, but this is not an excuse to give a bad service. If you feel that the person is not offering you a good service or stressing you to give him tips, DO NOT GIVE TIPS or REDUCDE THE AMOUNT. But please tell him why you did that. In most cases if you don’t give tips, people such as Driver, Cruise Staff, Felucca Captain or Carriage Car Driver will think that you gave the tips to your guide to give it to them and will start a Hard Talking with him about that and waste your time.
