Cruising the River Nile can be a perfect choice of holiday, giving you opportunities to meet a wide range of interesting fellow passengers.
The River Nile runs through nine different countries and spans more than 4,000 miles in length. This amazing river stretches from Uganda to Alexandria in Egypt, where it flows out into the Mediterranean.
Most Nile river cruises operate in Egypt, due to its fantastic history and global significance. They generally begin in Luxor and end in Aswan. Some of the amazing ancient monuments along the route include the Karnak Temple Complex.
Cruise excursions allow you to visit attractions like the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Kom Ombo and the Valley of the Queens. Most Egyptians live within easy distance of the green belt swathe created by this massive river. So, most of the ancient cities and modern attractions are located along the route of the river. You’ll have many opportunities to purchase artisan crafts and local produce in the ancient bazaars of the cities you visit during your cruise.
