Discover Nubia: A Journey Through Time and Tranquility on a Nubia Tour

Nubia, a land of stark beauty and rich history, once connected Egypt and Black Africa. Today, much of this ancient region lies beneath Lake Nasser, the world’s largest artificial lake. Our exclusive Nubia tour invites you to explore this unique landscape, blending historical wonder and modern comfort on an unforgettable boat journey.

Marvel at the Abu Simbel Temples

Our Nubia tour begins along the shores of Lake Nasser. Here, the majestic Abu Simbel Temples stand as one of Egypt's most awe-inspiring monuments, second only to the Giza Pyramids. Previously, Pharaoh Ramses II commissioned these colossal rock-cut temples. They mark the southern boundary of the Egyptian Empire during the New Kingdom. Undoubtedly, the grandeur of these temples, with their massive statues and intricate carvings, continues to echo the power and glory of ancient Egypt. Explore the Egypt Cultural Tour

Experience Comfort and Serenity on Our Boat

From the moment you step aboard our luxurious boat, comfort and tranquility envelop you. We designed it as a floating home and above all our vessel offers all the amenities needed to relax and enjoy the ever-changing vistas of Lake Nasser. Furthermore our small group size ensures a personalized experience. Occasionally, you can savor sunrises and sunsets over the water, glide quietly without the rush and noise of larger tours, and make leisurely stops for walks on shore.

Immerse in Aswan’s Rich Culture and History

Finally our journey culminates in the enchanting city of Aswan, a place steeped in history and natural beauty. Formerly known as Swenett, Aswan was a vital gateway to the South and a key provider of granite for ancient obelisks and sculptures. The city's name derives from the ancient Egyptian word “Soun,” meaning market. Up to the present time, it reflects its historical significance as a bustling trade center.

People know Aswan for its stunning Nile Valley scenery, significant archaeological sites, and its tranquil, welcoming atmosphere. In view of its warm, sunny climate year-round, Aswan is unquestionably an ideal winter destination.
