A Nile cruise is perhaps one of the best ways for a first time visitor to see many of the wonderful temples and tombs from Pharaonic times. At Always Egypt we can organise 4 or 7 day cruises, in luxurious surroundings, as you travel between Luxor and Aswan. Relax and watch the riverbank and its people, wildlife and agriculture. Or take any of the tours to the temples on the way – Esna, Kom Ombo or Edfu.
If you want to follow in the footsteps of 19th century travelers like Florence Nightingale and Amelia Edwards, you can sail down the Nile in a Dahabiya. A traditional two masted boat, which was the only way to travel along the Nile in those days. As they can moor anywhere along the riverbank, you can visit the spectacular quarries at Gebel-el-Silsila, where much of the stone for the temples was obtained.
