The Oberoi Philae, Egypt

Charting a course between Luxor and Aswan, this elegant river vessel sails on a selection of four and six-night itineraries. Each is designed to allow guests to experience the wonders of Egypt at a leisurely pace, with time divided between relaxing on board and exploring attractions – such as the temples of Karnak and Luxor – on shore. You will be joined on board by expert Egyptologists who will reveal the secrets of this fascinating country as you explore its most important waterway.

The Oberoi Philae has room for just 32 passengers accommodated in 22 well-appointed cabins and suites - complete with large French windows. Cabins are roomy and designed for complete comfort with air conditioning, coffee machines, 40-inch televisions, iPod docks and separate, spacious bathrooms. Delicious meals - inspired by Western, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine - are prepared fresh on board by talented chefs, and served in either the indoor restaurant, lounge or poolside.

  • From beginning to end the service I have received has been exceptional. I booked a bespoke family holiday to Australia that needed quite a lot of work, all completed with efficiency and skill. Covid then hit and my holiday was cancelled. Within 7 days, I received a full refund into my bank account. A company that can be trusted to treat customers fairly, coupled with outstanding and personable service means that I would not hesitate to recommend them. I have previously used this company for a trip to South America and my experience on that occasion was identical. A great travel company.
