Special Experiences

Enjoy a cooking class where we learn about delicious local Middle Eastern cuisine and enjoy our culinary creations for a group welcome dinner.
Visit the famous Lost City of Petra. Carved into the sheer rockface by the Nabataeans more than 2,000 years ago, it was an important junction for the silk and trade routes.
Take a dip in the Dead Sea and cover your body in the therapeutic mud, said to have amazing benefits for your skin.
We visit the Valley of the Kings. Carved deep into the limestone rock, each tomb has a similar pattern of three corridors, an antechamber and a sarcophagus chamber. We’ll be able to descend into some of the tombs to see examples of the elaborate and well-preserved hieroglyphic paintings.
After dark we’ll enjoy the incredible Philae Temple Sound & Light Show which brings the myth of the goddess Isis and god Osiris to life.
We'll visit the incredible twin temples of Abu Simbel. The temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses II in the 13th century BC, as a monument to himself and his queen, Nefertari.

Deluxe Experiences

We’ll indulge in a decadent high tea of delicate sandwiches and freshly baked scones with clotted cream whilst enjoying spectacular views over the Nile at the Old Cataract Hotel.

Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Please note:

  • Due to local laws and regulations, the only mode of transport available to visit the Temple of Horus in Edfu is by horse and carriage. You are welcome to explore Edfu independently or stay on board the cruise to enjoy the ship’s facilities if you would prefer. 
  • The luxury Nile cruise is not a private charter, and is shared with non Bunnik passengers. Due to the limited space for docking along the Nile, ships bank together when stopped. Therefore in some cases, you may need to walk through as many as six ships to enter and exit our cruise ship. The Nile Cruises featured on all tourist itineraries to Egypt operate between the cities of Luxor and Aswan. These cities lie only 240 kilometres apart which means this distance could easily be covered in only 1 or 2 days without stops. However, due to logistical and scheduling reasons the cruises are offered only as 3, 4 and 7 night packages. This allows for extensive sightseeing along the way and, as such, much of the time is spent in port in Luxor, Edfu, Kom Ombo or Aswan. Each cruise itinerary will however, have an element of day-time cruising allowing us to relax and see life along the river.
  • Note on Esna Lock and Itinerary Schedule: Please note that due to the high volume of river traffic all cruise itineraries are subject to change without notice. The order and timing of sightseeing may therefore change however all inclusions will remain the same. Similarly travel through the Esna Lock is subject to river traffic and local conditions which means we may pass through the lock during the night or have an extended wait prior to entering the lock.
  • Ramadan is observed from 2 April to 1 May 2022.

Optional Excursions:

  • Bunnik Tours has a small number of optional excursions that may be available to you on your small group tour. These are based on special-interest activities that don't always appeal to everyone, meaning they're truly optional. To view our optional excursions in Egypt and the Middle East click here.
