Nile Cruise Holidays
There is nothing quite like a holiday to the enchanting Nile River in Egypt. Where else in the world could you start your day on a traditional wooden boat, tour some of the world’s most impressive archaeological sites, shop in a bustling bazaar, and come back to your modern hotel room for a dip in the pool and a sunset cocktail? For history lovers and adventure seekers alike, a holiday to the Nile River is a magical experience.
What to see and do on a Holiday to the Nile
Most people on a holiday to the Nile base themselves in Luxor. This fascinating city is an intoxicating mix of modern hotels, shops, and restaurants, and ancient temples that date back to ancient times. Visitors to Luxor can stroll through the giant open air museum of the Temples of Luxor and Karnak to see colossal statues of the Pharaohs of Egypt, towering columns and well-preserved walls, and amazing hieroglyphic inscriptions inside the temples.
Another site that is not to be missed is the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. Located on the west bank of the Nile, these two fascinating areas were the burial grounds of Egyptian royalty between the 16th century BC and the 11th century BC. Over the years, archaeologists have found dozens of mummies in the caves and rock tombs here, including the most famous of them all, King Tutankhamun.
For a relaxing way to see the Nile, take a felucca ride down the river. These small wooden boats sail down the river at a leisurely pace, allowing you to take in the sights of day-to-day life along the banks of the river, as well as the stunning historic monuments. You can opt for a one day tour to the most famous sites around Luxor and Aswan, or journeys that last up to two weeks and take in everything that the Nile River has to offer.
