Cruising down the Nile is about watching the life on the river, its people, the lush surroundings and the wildlife. Nile cruises provide sightseeing of the less accessible monuments in Upper Egypt, such as the Temple of Philae, the High Dam and the Granite Quarries from which the stone was taken for the building of the pyramids at Giza. Cruising is at a very relaxing pace which enables you to take in the scenery and watch the enigmatic river come alive. The cruise durations vary from 3 nts to 7 nts and all cruise sightseeing is included in the itineraries.
