By taking a cruise trip down the Nile, and listening to various explanations of the many views, buildings and sights, one can almost feel the 'timelessness' of this magnificent river. Only sad part was the lack of care of pollution to this mighty river in...More

The Nike River is mysterious and majestic. We had dinner on a felucca and spent a few hours enjoying the lights and sounds of this wonderful place. It was a lovely evening!

To ride a felucca ( a boat) down this might river Nile and relax is something worthwhile doing. I even spent the night on the felucca

We joined a Trafalgar tour to visit Egypt which included 4 nights aboard The Medea cruising the Nile. The ship style was as expected of the age of relaxed sailing. Small but comfortable rooms, generally good food, the set menu far superior to the buffet....More

Although the temptation might be to simply sip a drink and either sit by your pool or face in one direction, I'd urge you to take a trip along the Nile for as far and as long as you can. You will constantly be amazed...More
