Luxury Egypt Tours – you’ll hear the term used all the time, but you have to be very careful with your choices if that’s truly the experience you want.
Take Nile cruises, for instance. It doesn’t seem to matter greatly what the qualities of the boats are, or whether they’re six months old or sixty years old – they tend to have been accorded five stars!
There are ‘five star ships’, and then there are truly five star ships. And the only way I have ever been able to tell the difference as an Egypt specialist is to go out and see them for myself.
And in fact, you often only find true luxury on the Nile away from the cruisers anyway. A personal favourite here at African Explorations are the dahabiyas – small, characterful sailing boats. No chugging engines, no swarms of people – just you, a handful of passengers and crew, and the Nile. And, of course, a stunning vessel.
That’s the way we think of luxury – and we apply it to every aspect of the country that we suggest, to every guide that we pick for your trip.
We adopt that approach from the moment you get in touch, working out a programme that suits you, rather than shoehorning you in to a pre-arranged package.
So there are many ways to experience luxury Egypt tours – but there is ‘luxury’ and then there is luxury…
