Experience Egypt Like Never Before

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

River Cruising the Nile

River cruising is an excellent way to experience a destination like Egypt where one of the oldest civilizations in the world began along the banks of the Nile River. Egypt has such a fascinating history, beautiful sunsets and landscapes, as well as the culture, food, and people who live there.



The Nile River cruise will begin with a three-night pre-cruise stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence. During your four days in Cairo, you will visit the pyramids, see King Tut’s treasures, see ancient Memphis sites including the Great Sphinx. On day four, you’ll fly to Luxor where you will embark on the beautiful new 68 passenger ship. The next 7 days you’ll spend on the Nile with stops at Luxor, Edfu, Aswan, Kom Ombo, Qena, and then back to Luxor where you will disembark, fly back to Cairo where you will spend one night before heading back home. During your cruise, there are excursions to see amazing historical temples, meet locals and historians who will capture your attention with their amazing stories, and experience local cuisines and flavors.

If you’re anything like me, Egypt has always been a place of intense interest. I remember reading about King Tut and the pyramids as a kid. Those stories grab hold of you and never tend to leave. Because of the mystery and history of the region, for years, it was one of the world’s most popular destinations. However, over time, security became a concern, so people felt unsafe and travel and tourism to the region was heavily affected. However, as of 2019, Egypt’s travel and tourism became the fastest growing in North Africa. Egypt’s tourism numbers are second only to Ethiopia when considering the whole continent of Africa. The improved security infrastructure has helped to attract international visitors back to the region and has allowed many travel companies to restart operations in popular destinations.


In 2021, river cruising will hit the Nile River for an adventure that you will not soon forget. The Nile River flows for more than 4,000 miles through 11 countries including Tanzania, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Eritrea, South Sudan, and Egypt before emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. Adding more to the mystique of this river is than rather than running north to south as most rivers do, it runs south to north. River cruising is an excellent way to experience a destination like Egypt where one of the oldest civilizations in the world began along the banks of the Nile River. Egypt has such a fascinating history, beautiful sunsets and landscapes, as well as the culture, food, and people who live there.

This is a river cruise like none other! If you’re interested in cruising the Nile, be sure to call or message me. These cruises will sell out quickly with room for only 68 passengers onboard. I would love to help you plan your trip.
