Our pick of the best experiences in Aswan, Luxor & the Nile River

The stretch between Luxor and Aswan is the most popular sailing route along the River Nile. Showcasing fascinating monuments, fertile valleys and barren beauty, it’s the part of the Nile packed with the most sites and a luxury cruise with Lightfoot Travel will showcase the highlights. 

If there’s one place to truly appreciate the scale of the Nile's ancient civilisation, it’s Luxor.

Enjoy an early morning hot air balloon ride to take in its magnificence.

From Luxor, a luxury cruise will take you to across the Nile to see the Valley of the Kings and Queens where new tombs seem to be discovered every day. Continue to sail to the lesser known temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. Disembark in Aswan, the home of Philae Temple, charming Nubian villages, and buzzy colourful markets. At the end of each day, relax on deck while watching local scenes unfold to the background sounds of the call to prayer.

Four Seasons New York sits between Park Avenue and Madison Avenue. The hotel is palatial, with French Chassagne stone floors and colossal pillars, but the subtle lighting and potted plants tucked into corners provide a feeling of calm. 

This mood translates into the 368 rooms which come with comforts more reminiscent of a private residence. Natural light fuses with state-of-the-art technology and crafted furnishings, including the seemingly floating beds and hand-knotted rugs, with a backdrop of panoramic views over Manhattan’s most celebrated landmarks. Separate elevators for the top floors add to the exclusivity.

The Garden provides an enchanted forest-like restaurant which offers breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch menus featuring local ingredients. Ty Bar is a stylish, art deco inspired hotspot serving classic cocktails of the 1920s and 30s.

Guests who’ve indulged in New York’s fast-paced magnificence will welcome time at the spa – a whopping 4,500 square foot space boasting ten treatment rooms, saunas, a hair salon and two nail stations. The vast gym is also open 24/7.
