The Nile River is the longest river in the world at 4,132 miles (6,650 kilometres) flowing through eastern Africa, Sudan & Egypt where nearly all the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along its riverbanks. It rises south of the equator and flows northward through eastern Africa to Khartoum in The Sudan and Lake Nasser, over the Aswan dams, through Egypt to Cairo and then drains into the Mediterranean Sea between Alexandria and Port Said. River cruises between Luxor and Aswan are a comfortable way of visiting ancient sites like the Valley of the Kings and Philae.
We had a fabulous trip..we were well served on board by very endearing boys who looked after our needs faultlessly. We enjoyed the shows..lovely theatre, let ourselves go in the Nightclub...fantastic, enjoyed the piano music etc etc. The food was of course, varied and of high standard.. We always found something different to enjoy. My husband particularly enjoyed the beers and the highlight for him was the beer festival on board!! Thank you to everyone..was a perfect holiday and a perfect way to celebrate my husband's retirement.
