Egypt Boat Tour

Despite its political hardships over the past few years, Egypt remains a welcoming and hospitable country to foreigners. Travellers are drawn here for the pyramids, but they’re often surprised by how much more Egypt has to offer. There are desert oases, and beaches along the Red Sea. And then there’s the heartbeat of the country: The River Nile. If you’re looking for a unique way to travel around Egypt, hire a local guide to take you on an Egypt boat tour.

Cruising down the Nile offers unlimited options for seeing both modern and ancient Egypt. Be sure to check out the East Bank Monuments on your Egypt boat tour, including the Institute of Perfumes. West Bank Monuments include the Colossi of Memnon, Alabaster Factory, the Valley of the Kids, and the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. There’s also the temple of falcon-headed Horus at Edfu, and the Temple of the crocodile god Sobek at Kom Ombo. If you think those complexes sound interesting, they are! An experienced guide will give you the rundown on the monuments’ histories and how they are used today.

Other areas of interest along the Nile include the Philae Temple, High Dam, and the Papyrus Museum. Of course, no trip to Egypt is complete without visiting the Giza pyramids! Get on land for awhile to explore the pyramids and the famous Sphinx. Did you know that the Great Pyramid was so precisely constructed beginning in 2589 BC that our modern technology can’t even replicate it? Or that some pyramids of Giza are precisely aligned with the Constellation of Orion? Your guide will teach you all this, and more.

Egypt Boat Tour Continued...

Another option for the Nile is to have a dinner cruise out of Cairo on a two-hour sailing trip, complete with lots of traditional entertainment. Sit back and enjoy a first-class meal with belly dancers, a folklore introduction, western music, and more. The chef will cook up some Egyptian food for you to enjoy as you take in Cairo by night.

For more cultural immersion, you can also visit a Pharaonic village, where pharaoh life is depicted. You will see traditional costumes, as well as replicas of what their homes looked like and what kind of food they would have eaten.

Looking for something a little different? Take a cruise to Luxor, stopping into popular attractions like the Philea Temple and the Kom Ombo temple along the way. Luxor itself is a stunning place to visit. Located in the Nile Valley, this whole area is scattered with ancient relics left behind from as far back as Thebes time. The temples of Karnak are particularly special, as well as the temple complexes on the west bank. Luxor by comparison is a modern city – and one that continues to dazzle travellers of all kinds.
