How relaxing one River cruise is, we experienced it ourselves on the Rhone. You can also experience this in Egypt. Hardly any other type of travel is more relaxing than a grand Nile cruise from Cairo to Aswan. You sit on the sun deck during your Nile trip through Egypt, enjoy a sundowner and let the Egyptian landscape slowly glide past you. Watch the sunset. No street noise disturbs the peace. One can see waterfowl and animals on the river banks. On the Nile, the cruise ship crosses cultural landscapes that are ancient. Cities on the Nile, where people have been using the water of the river for their agriculture for thousands of years, keep popping up on the banks. The river keeps the soil fertile.

Nile cruise sightseeing in Egypt

The sights in Egypt that await passengers along the Nile are even more impressive. Egyptian builders created ancient Egyptian burial chambers on the edge of the desert thousands of years ago. The royal tombs of Egypt still impress their visitors today. Visiting the pyramids is a must when you visit Egypt. The cities on the Nile are also worth a visit. Excursions allow passengers to explore them. This makes a cruise on the Nile an experience.

  • Aswan and Abu Simbel

Nile cruises from Cairo to Aswan show the Nile in all its facets. In Aswan, the ship usually docks for several days on a river cruise on the Nile. On the first day, passengers will visit Agilika Island. There is a temple of the goddess Isis. From there we continue to the Aswan Dam. If you want, you can take a boat trip on the Nile afterwards.

On the second day there is the possibility to visit the souks of Aswan. Life is seething here. Traders sell spices and other products from the Orient. Alternatively, you can take a trip to Abu Simbel. The rock temple of King Ramses II is probably one of the most famous buildings in Egypt.

After a full day gliding down the riverbanks on the Egypt Nile Cruise, the ship comes back to Luxor. From there you drive to West Thebes in the Valley of the Kings. This valley is home to some of the sites from the Pharaonic period of Egypt. The royal tombs of Egypt alone are worth a trip. They are among Egypt's most beautiful places.
