A Nile cruise is the perfect way to discover the wonders of Egypt at a relaxing pace. Following the course of the world’s longest river as it meanders between Luxor and Aswan, a River Nile cruise will take you through landscapes unchanged in centuries on the way to Egypt’s most stirring archaeological sites.
Sit back on deck and absorb the tranquil scenes as your Nile cruise ship glides along the slow-moving waters, transporting you to temples, tombs and other relics dating back to the Pharaohs. There’s so much to see as you sail: all testifying to the age-old importance of the river to Egyptian daily life. Watch as white-sailed feluccas crisscross between the banks, fishermen cast their nets and rural hamlets come into view between the date palms and lush fields – it’s a rolling film set of fascinating scenes and surprises.
