If you want to discover the fascinating history of ancient Egypt, a cruise on the River Nile should feature high on your travel bucket list. Luckily, many of the major sights are on the banks of the Nile and so a cruise along this prolific river is a great way of dipping your toes into the wonder of Egypt, where you’ll sail by, moor up and tick off the must-see attractions. Nile cruise holidays allow you to soak up the sights from the comfort of your luxury cabin or hop off and hunt down the iconic attractions – catch some culture in Cairo and visit Giza for its famous pyramids, travel to The Valley of Kings where you’ll find Tutankhamun’s tomb and wander around Egypt’s ancient towns.
Holidays on the Nile Cruise are perfect for families and couples who like the freedom to explore all that this dreamy destination has to offer. Just the idea of enjoying glorious sunsets over the Nile from your cruise boat with a cocktail in hand is tempting enough to make a Nile Cruise holiday so popular among travellers. Although Nile cruises sail almost throughout the year, the best time to go is during the winters (December-February). Shoulder seasons (March-April and October-November) are also good times to cruise the Nile. Most of the cruises start from Luxor, although there are cruises originating from Aswan. Both the cities are well-connected with Cairo with trains and domestic flights. So, follow in the footsteps of the Pharaohs and set sail today!
