For those who wish to be immersed in the fascinating ancient history of ancient Egypt, this 15 night fully escorted cruise will allow you to experience the hustle and bustle of Cairo, Africa’s most populated city and the serenity of Nile, where the story of the pharaohs, and the magnificent monuments that they have built will unfold before your eyes. 

The Great Pyramids of Giza and the magnificent Egyptian museum will whet your appetite for your adventure ahead as you sail the Nile uncovering tombs and pyramids, and see rural Egypt where life has not really changed for hundreds of years from the comfort of your cruise boat. 

Each day another fascinating chapter is explored, from the 39 tombs of the Middle Kingdom in Beni Suef, and Abydos the oldest city in ancient Egypt, to the magnificent Valley of the Kings, the final resting place of some of the greatest pharaohs and their elaborately decorated tombs.
