There’s no question that a cruise of the Nile, which served as the foundation of ancient Egyptian civilization, is the best and most comfortable way to explore the treasures of Egypt. Many of the country’s most important temples and tombs are located along the banks of the great river – including the Valley of Kings and Queens and the temples of Karnak and Luxor.
Also visit Lake Nasser, where you can cruise on the lake, as well as visiting the fascinating Temple of King Ramses II and the Temple of Queen Neferati.
Naturally you won’t want to miss the Pyramids of Giza and the eternal Sphinx, which are located just outside the bustling city of Cairo – an ideal starting point for any tour of Egypt.
