GATE 1 Travel Australia has announced the return of Egypt to its portfolio of river cruises and land experiences, with the addition of its new 12-day Classic Egypt with seven-day Nile Cruise tour.

The tour includes accommodation, return airport transfers with all flight-inclusive packages, as well as a seven-day cruise down the Nile on board the MS Queen of Hansa. Highlights include visits to the temples of Karnak, checking out Horus’s Temple of Edfu, the chance to enjoy the Great Pyramids of Giza, as well as a visit to the Greco-Roman temple Kom Ombo.

“This tour is perfect for first-timers, as well as return visitors as it includes all the ‘hits’, as well as a few more of the more unusual sites,” said Gate 1 Travel Australia General Manager Kim Erskine.

“The upside of travelling with us is that our local guides possess true insight into the culture and can share insider tips on where to go during free time for an authentic experience that goes well beyond the tourist trail,” she added.
