Nile Cruise Luxor to Aswan From Sharm
What an amazing 5 days!!! Booked this trip with SharmExcursions having used them last year for a few small excursions, this time wanted to see some more of Egypt and what a good decision that was.

Saw loads of fantastic sights, and have tonnes of great memories of temples, Valley of the Kings, views from sailing down the Nile and loads more.

Would definitely recommend for those who want to see Egypt.
