Hello Nikki

for nile cruises you can take a nile cruise from cairo to luxor 7days/6nights "not sure if it still workin because it was 1 year ago"
also you can by train to Luxor and start taking a nile cruise from luxro to aswan 4days/3nights.

the second one cost me "egyptian price" around 450L.E "approx 74$" but it is full board 4 stars with sight seeing.
i dont know how much it will be for the tourists.

really nile cruise is very cool,price is also depends on the time you will be here.

I hope this information I give will help you some.

dont hesitate to write back with your questions.

Hi,

We haven't booked are flights yet, but we're looking to arrive in Cairo around the 16th Oct, stay there for about 3 days, we were told about a relaxed hostel with huts on the roof, sounds pretty cool. From there we were thinking about maybe taking a train down to Luxor, stay there for a day or two and then hopefully get a cruise from Luxor to Aswan........ we're still very much in the planning stages, we should be spending about 4 weeks in total in Egypt

well i think you still mixed up with the tour
you should know where you want to go first then make the timetable
then to see how you want to go and the costs.
you can go to alexandria/cairo/sharm/dahab/luxor/aswan/hurghada.

decide then we can setup a great program

We want to see quite q lot of sights and towns but at the same time hope to have 3-4 days at the end to relax on a beach, take long walks, snorkel, basically relax before returning home.....

Hello again Nikki
so well here we go i will tell you each sight and decent thing in each city so you know what and where you are going to do in it.

1-Cairo
this is the capital as you know.cairo and giza can be considered as one city.
-sure you will go to pyramids,egyptian musuem,nile cruise.khan elkhalili,castle,islamic cairo,christian cairo,mokattam hill
-Khan elkhalili is a somewhere to buy your souvoniers and can be considered as one of islamic cairo.
-mokattam hill is the left side of cairo,you will see cairo from a top view dont miss this at the sunset time,as its totally great.

2-Alexandria.
its my home which i adore,alexandria is located on the beach n there you can visit the castle and the beach its better than cairo as much cleaner and low noise,and great weather.

3-Sharm
a community of tourists,a great many things to do like diving and rest on the beach,feel very safe there.

4-Dahab
the best area ever you can snorkle in,try somewhere called blue hall and you will never forget this thing.

5-luxor and aswan
simply contain 30% of the temples you can see over the world

hope that helps enough
sorry for my long reply
