A land of ancient monuments, mysterious legends and a charisma that never fails to excite visitors, Egypt has long been a stalwart of many travellers’ bucket lists.While the political upheaval of the past five years has been a significant deterrent to tourism, 2017 has seen the country buzzing with renewed optimism sparked by a real resurgence in the number of people interested in travelling there.Sanctuary Retreats has been operating river cruises on Egypt’s Nile River for almost two decades, with a choice of four vessels offering a range of cruise itineraries and bespoke charters, and remains passionate about – and confident in – the destination.Michael McCall, Sanctuary Retreats’ director of sales Australia, NZ & Asia, comments, “The company is optimistic about Egypt’s stability and safety, and we are really buoyed by the strong level of renewed interest in it from both consumers and agents”.Indeed, Michael believes there has never been a better time to travel to Egypt. “Right now visitors to Egypt can still enjoy all of the major landmarks almost completely free of tourists, with quite a few previously restricted archaeological areas opening up to sightseers.”One thing is absolutely certain: Egypt’s ancient past lives on in its majestic monuments and relics created by one of the most impressive civilisations history has seen. And according to Michael there is simply no better way to experience them than a cruise along the mighty Nile.“Follow the river from Aswan to Luxor right through the heart of Egypt, and you can take in some of the best-known highlights including the Valley of the Kings and Queens, the Unfinished Obelisk, Philae and Luxor. Plus there’s ample opportunity to explore the more remote, but equally spectacular, Dendera, Kom Ombo and Edfu temples along this section of the river”.Sanctuary Retreats’ four intimate river cruisers – Sanctuary Sun Boat III, Sanctuary Sun Boat IV, Sanctuary Nile Adventurer and Sanctuary Zein Nile Chateau – each provides the perfect combination of elegant surroundings, luxury service and cultural itineraries for an unforgettable Nile experience.Perfect for a relaxing journey along the river, each ship combines timeless beauty, grace and cutting-edge efficiency with the discreet ambience of an exclusive club. Smaller than the average Nile cruiser, their designs ensure a more personalised service coupled with the leisurely pace of a longer cruise.Priced from just US$870 per person for a three-night cruise.
