No trip to Egypt is complete without taking a cruise on the Nile River. It is a magnificent body of water that fueled one of the most sophisticated, artistic, long lived, and technologically advanced societies on Earth. There is nothing quite like relaxing in a lounge chair on the top deck of a Nile cruise ship watching the gorgeous green farms pass by with the desert hills and dunes behind them.
A ride on the Nile takes the traveler to the ancient cities that dominated the Egyptian world and led to the western culture we are now familiar with. The temples and burial sites are amazing. Taking in that scenery on a gentle, relaxing cruise (perhaps with a massage or two) is one of life’s great pleasures.
