Emerald Waterways has announced its first Egypt and Jordan touring and cruise itineraries, taking in Cairo and Amman as well as the Pyramids, the Great Sphinx and the antiquities of Petra.


Guests on Emerald Waterways can now experience the Pyramids at Giza – the only surviving Ancient Wonder of the World – and the stunning Al-Khazneh temple in Petra all in one incredible trip.

The company has announced its first Egypt and Jordan touring and cruise itineraries, including a five-day Nile river cruise on board the exclusively chartered MS Hamees by Mövenpick. 

The luxurious river ship – fresh from an extensive refurbishment – combines luxury and comfort, sailing a four-night cruise from Luxor to Aswan on the majestic Nile river. 

On a 10-day tour, guests explore bustling Cairo and a trove of antiquities, including Tutankhamun’s mask, which is displayed in the Egyptian Museum. From there, they visit the pyramids at Giza and the Great Sphinx, both constructed between about 2580 and 2550BC, before continuing their journey with a four-night cruise on the Nile. This incredible voyage includes a visit to a traditional Nubian village, giving guests the chance to uncover what life is like for locals who live by the river.

On a 15-day tour guests also have the chance to explore Amman, the capital of Jordan. Here, they will enjoy a guided city tour and visit the city’s ancient citadel, before exploring Petra, including the imposing Al-Khazneh and the world-famous mosaic map of the Holy Lands.
