We are glad to see one of our favourite river cruise companies resume departures on the River Nile in Egypt. Guests will enjoy several nights at the gorgeous Four Seasons in Cairo before their journey down this iconic river on the small, luxury River Tosca.
Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection announced they will set sail once again on Egypt’s great Nile River onboard the elegant, all-suite River Tosca beginning October 2015.
Uniworld will resume its first sailing on October 3, 2015 with “Splendors of Egypt & the Nile,” a 12-day program starting and ending in Cairo. Guests will spend four nights at the luxurious Four Seasons Cairo at Nile Plaza—recognized by Travel + Leisure as one of the finest hotels—and they will spend seven nights onboard the elegant 82-guest all-suite River Tosca—recognized by Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism in 2012 as “Best Cruise Ship” out of nearly 300 cruise ships sailing the Nile River. “Egypt is one of the most awe-inspiring destinations that I have ever visited, and one that no culturally curious traveler will want to miss. I am delighted we are able to resume sailing the Nile and taking our guests to Egypt’s most historic sites,” states Guy Young, President of Uniworld.
From the moment guests arrive in Egypt, Uniworld’s team of dedicated professionals will be on hand to take care of all guests’ details. Egyptologist lead small group excursions to such culturally significant sites as the Temples of Karnak and Luxor; various monuments around Ancient Memphis, including the great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx; the Valley of the Kings; and the Temples of Horus, Hathor, and Hatshepsut.
Uniworld encourages travelers to book early for the greatest savings. For couples who pay-in-full at time of reservation before March 30, 2015, they can save $1,000 on Uniworld’s "Splendors of Egypt & the Nile" boutique river cruise and journey.
