are only a few places along the trip. With elegant ironwork, rich fabrics and carpet you will feel at home in no time while seeing sights that you could never have imagined. Choose from our four or six night luxury Nile cruises between Luxor and Aswan on the Oberoi Philae river cruise boat. You will travel to places that ancient pharaohs visited. Because this is a sailing vessel, you will travel as a leisurely pace while seeing amazing vistas. You can learn more about Aswan and the Temple at Philae below.
There are several places such as the Temple at Philae and Aswan that cannot be missed. First, the temple. The temple is actually a complex dedicated to the goddess Isis and built by the Ptolemaic Pharaohs. It was disassembled and moved to Eglika Island in the 1960's when the Aswan Dam was built. Aswan and the Aswan Dams are another attraction of the Oberoi Philae river cruise boat. Both dams are amazing sites to see. The Temple at Karnak is another location that will leave you breathless. Near Luxor, the temple honors three gods: Montu, Amun and Mut. It covers five acres of land and took more than 1,000 years to build. The temple was added to by many pharaohs and includes four courtyards, a sacred lake and ten pylons. Learn about other Nile Cruise, Oberoi tours on the next page.
