Everyone coming to Egypt doesn’t want to miss Luxor and Aswan Nile cruise, but keep in mind if you want to take your time in visiting all the sites, you better stay in hotels.
Traveling by the Nile cruise doesn’t give you enough time, timing is sometimes not very suitable, hectic and very limited. When you go for the hotels option, you can have two nights in luxor and two in Aswan.
If you are planning to enjoy the Redsea of hurghada, Safaga, Marsa Alam or other cities, you better start from Aswan end up in luxor. You can always drive from Luxor to hurghada. But not from Aswan as it is really far.
