Egypt River Cruises
Throughout the centuries, Egypt has been a favorite destination among travelers and it still holds its allure as a shining oasis of achievement in the great Sahara Desert. As the cradle of civilization, Egypt contains two thirds of the world’s greatest historical monuments, including the last remaining “7 Wonders of the Ancient World,” the Great Pyramids of Giza. It is the land of Pharaohs, Pyramids, the Sphinx, Cleopatra, King Tut, and the incomparable Nile River. Egypt offers experiences not found anywhere else in the world!
Come with us to Cairo to journey through time at the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis (Giza), the renowned capital of the Old Kingdom and home of the magnificent Pyramids. Quietly listen to the rolling calls to prayer heard five times daily from numerous mosque minarets. Let your feet dance to the impromptu Nubian music heard in the Bazaar while strolling and inhaling the exotic perfume of spices and looking at the variety of wares for sale. Cairo hums with activity 24 hours a day. This metropolis is a wonderful blending of the present and the unforgettable glorious past.
But Egypt is more than just Cairo; the country is virtually one big open-air museum! Encounter a plethora of marvelous sights and delightful experiences along the Nile River! Each ancient monument visited is a unique architectural wonder. New opportunities await the visitor such as riding a camel, enjoying a belly dance show, floating to botanical gardens by felucca and viewing the High Dam of Aswan. And everywhere, one is greeted with a warm welcome, an infectious smile and a lingering old-world hospitality that is unrivaled! Immortal, exotic and celebrated, Egypt is truly a treasure chest of discovery!
