The 4000-odd miles long Nile is the largest river in the world. The River Nile has shaped the life of people in Egypt – both ancient and modern. A Nile Rive Cruise is an idyllic getaway that takes you through thousands of years of Ancient Egypt’s history with visits to temples and important historical sites.
Usually, 3 types of Nile River Cruises are available: 3-night, 4-night and 7-night. Any tour would include a visit to the High Dam and the Temple of Philae in Aswan and the temples of KomOmbo, Edfu, Esna. On return to Luxor after the Nile River Cruise visits are scheduled to the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only female pharaoh in Ancient Egyptian History.
Most Nile River Cruise packages are all-inclusive. This includes transportation, accommodation and sightseeing tours and food. Drinks, laundry, telephone calls, and tips are not included.
Cost of a Nile River cruise will depend on which deck you select. The Upper Decks are priced higher than the Lower Decks but they also provide a better view. The Nile River Cruise will be more pleasant if a room is selected that is closer to the front of the ship where the engines noise is the least.
Egypt has many wonderful sights to see and there are so many things to consider a Nile River Cruise. However, plan your trip with enough time on hand to at least include a Nile River cruise which is one of the best cruises in the world.
