With all meals, accommodation and sightseeing expenses included, your M/Y Mirage cruise on the Nile River makes your journey into ancient Egypt as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. Included in your trip are guided tours to:

  • The Valley of the Kings, the resting place of numerous New Kingdom pharaohs whose remains were interred in tombs burrowed into rock. The 60-odd tombs which have been discovered may represent only half of the total tombs in the area.
  • The Luxor Temples, including the Temple of Karnak, which is the largest of Luxor’s temples and is one of the most sacred sites in ancient Egypt.
  • The Temple of Edfu, located on the west bank of the Nile in the city of Edfu. It is the second largest temple in Egypt after Karnak and one of the best preserved.
  • Kom Ombo, an agricultural town in Egypt famous for the Temple of Kom Ombo.
  • The Philae Temple in Aswan, built to the goddess Isis, known as the Mother of God, giver of life, protector and healer of kings and her temple.
