Apart from being the longest river in the world, the Nile has a mystical quality about it that stokes our fantasy. Thousands of tourists from across the world visit Egypt to have a dekko at the river that has been the lifeblood of Egypt for thousands of years. Witness to Egypt's long and culturally rich history, the emerald Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and the Blue Nile, the latter being the source of most of the Nile's water and fertile soil, but the former being the longer of the two. To Visit Egypt is incomplete without a Nile river cruise that lets you experience the wealth of Egyptian history, culture and architecture.
A Nile River Cruise holiday on the river Nile can be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. All Egypt Nile cruises include a visit to Luxor where you see the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, ancient Egypt's longest ruling female pharaoh, and the Temple of Karnak, the largest temple complex built by man.
You can also go from Luxor to the Valley of the Kings, the resting place of more than 60 pharaohs, including the mysterious boy-king Tutankhamun. On your Nile River cruise, you may also visit the 2,000-year-old, beautifully preserved Temple of Horus, or sail aboard a felucca, a traditional Egyptian sailing vessel. Nile River cruises also include a visit to the High Dam of Aswan, one of Egypt's modern marvels.
Egypt Nile River Tours also give you the opportunity to experience first hand Egyptian village life. As you cruise, you see tiny minaretted villages, white-galabiya-dressed farmers working their fields with animal-pulled wooden ploughs and gently moving felucca sailboats. You can choose either short duration trips that last for 4-5 days, between Luxor and Aswan; or you can also opt for a longer duration trip (7 or 8 days) that take you further north to Dendera.
