Travelers have been visiting the ancient wonders of Egypt for centuries, and a tailor-made luxury vacation to Egypt can incorporate many of the historical sites with a Nile cruise, a trip to the desert or diving and snorkeling in the Red Sea.
With a central location for sightseeing, the Four Seasons at the Nile Plaza is a luxurious hotel just to the south of Tahrir Square in Cairo. As with Four Seasons hotels across the world, it offers superb luxury, excellent decor and the finest furnishings. It's also ideal for visiting the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and the pyramids of Giza.
A Nile cruise is a popular way of seeing the archeological treasures around Luxor and Aswan. Built in 1885, the Steam Ship Sudan has had many eminent guests including Agatha Christie who was inspired to write Death on the Nile after traveling on the boat.
The M/S Oberoi Zahra outstrips its rivals when it comes to comfort and luxury. There are exhaustive facilities on board including a massage spa, swimming pool, gym, boutique and theater and the suites have timber floors and large windows with panoramic views of the Nile.
