Discover Egypt has kicked off its winter Nile cruise schedule, with sailings from Luxor throughout the winter months.

Philip Breckner, the company's commercial director, said: “September is the start of our winter sun sales and classic Nile cruises, and is also the best time to visit Egypt. Agents offering a Nile cruise as a winter sun break will know that their clients will be rewarded with the chance to see some of Egypt’s most iconic attractions without the crowds, and be able to admire incredible monuments, tombs and temples such as the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and the Temples of Luxor, Karnak, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Philae in peace.

"We have a good number of repeat clients and some say that when they ask their retailers to book a Nile cruise, they are told there isn’t anyone selling these. But the reality is (as it has always been) with a specialist, we stand by the destination in good and poorer times. Our message to agents is, keep selling Nile cruises and we’re here to help you do just that.”

The lead in price for a seven-night cruise on MS Mayfair is £899, which includes the full board cruise with ten guided excursions, flights from Heathrow and transfers.
