(PRWEB UK) 9 December 2014
Following the lifting of Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) travel restrictions last week for the remainder of the Nile Valley, Orbital Travel is very pleased to announce that its 14 night long cruise between Cairo and Aswan is back on sale.
The stretch of river between Cairo and Luxor had been closed for 18 years and re-opened in 2012. As well as visiting the main sights in Cairo, tourists returning to Middle Egypt can now visit El Minya (including Tel-Amarna, the atmospheric remains of the desert city of Akhenaten and the tombs of Beni Hassan); Abydos Temple (one of the most complete temples of its era in Egypt) and Dendera Temple (with remarkable scenes and beautifully preserved colours).
Cruises are on board the 5* HS Nile Vision which is already part of Orbital Travel’s fleet and is a firm favourite. Departures are on a Tuesday and provisional sailing dates in 2015 are in March and April, and September and October. Cruises are fully escorted by an English speaking Egyptologist who is on board throughout the cruise.
John McCallum, Orbital Travel’s Managing Director, commented: “We are pleased to offer this very special 14 night cruise once again. It gives clients the opportunity to enjoy more cruising time on the Nile as well as to visit the Pyramids in Cairo and lesser known sites such as Abydos and Dendera which are remarkable. The cruise also offers great value for money with 21 guided excursions included. The cruise is on board the 5* Nile Vision, one of our most popular and well established boats.”
Prices lead in at £1669 per person and include 14 nights’ accommodation on a Full Board basis, all transfers, flights from London Heathrow with EgyptAir and 21 excursions escorted by an English speaking Egyptologist who is on board throughout the cruise. The All Inclusive supplement is £195 per person.
