A historical adventure cruising down dynasties of Kings and Queens, with a spectacular setting.
Egypt is the gift of the Nile and is wholly dependant on its life supporting capacities and powers. The uniquely powerful role exerted by the Nile should be celebrated and appreciated, and what better way to do so than to cruise to the Nile and experience Egypt from a captivating perspective? The Nile is the ultimate incentive to visit Northeast Africa whose water is shared by Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan and more. This powerful river will lead you to Egypt, as well as the astonishing pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples, The Valley of the Kings where the tomb of Tutankhamun was unearthed and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Take a break from cruising the Nile to explore Dendara or Edfu or one of many waterside temples. A cruise to Egypt offers endless opportunities and unforgettable sights including sensational sun rises and vast desert landscapes. Wander along the rugged coast of the Red Sea and gaze out at the shimmering horizon. The Nile is the key to some of the best sights Egypt has to offer. Choose a cruise that will guide you to the Valley of the Kings, Mt Sinai, the Ruins of Abu, the White Desert National Park, the Monastery of St Paul and much more.
Egypt and the Nile
Egypt is a land of ancient splendour enriched by centuries of culture. Along the narrow ribbon of the 960mile River Nile, dynasties of Kings and Queens created monumental legacies that will fascinate you.
Nile cruises visit a wider variety of antiquities along the banks of the river. But equally important, they also allow the tourist to gain a prospective of the rural Egypt, where people live much the same way they did even thousands of years ago, in mudbrick homes, tending their fields with wooden plows and moving produce via donkey. It is a wonderful experience to sit on a shaded deck of a floating hotel, sipping an iced beverage while watching 5,000 years of culture slowly drift by.
