The home to the longest river in the world, the Nile — Egypt is a civilization that dates as far back as time goes.
Right from the onset of their civilization, the Egyptians held this river in high regard as they believed the Nile to be the gateway to the afterlife.
For that reason, almost all of the historically important places related to ancient Egypt are found at the banks of the Nile, which makes it one of the most stunning and culturally-rich tourist destinations across the globe!
Unquestionably, the best way to experience the wonders of ancient Egypt unfolding right in front of you is by taking a deluxe cruise along the riverside of the Nile!
We’ll guide your way around 30 centuries worth of cultural wealth with our deluxe cruise selections! Remember to be aware of Egypt’s entry requirements before making plans to visit!

Cruising The Nile
Sailing in the Nile is a delightful experience for anyone. This exceptional river is hands-down more majestic than any other river, well-known or not.
The Nile is very wide and has a beautiful color with clear waters and a serene environment. You can almost escape reality and go into your own fantasy land, being that close to the river that once was admired by the Pharaos themselves!
The Nile cruise is incomplete without visiting Aswan, however, as discussed next.
Arriving in Aswan
We’ve mentioned already that the absolute lifeline of the ancient civilization of Egypt, the Nile, is outlined by numerous historical temples and tombs.
Apart from exploring the city that is dubbed as “the world’s greatest open-air museum,” Luxor, cruising the Nile with us in a deluxe cruise, you’ll also get to see the “Jewel of the Nile” — Aswan.
While in Aswan, you can take a felucca ride, which is essentially sailing a local wooden boat that gives your journey a natural touch alongside the luxurious cruise ride.
You can cruise your way to El Nabatat Island, Elephantine Island, and the cultural destination of the Aga Khan Mausoleum!
After a day of sailing around, you can indulge in an exotic Aswan dinner at the cruise to end your day in a folkloric ambiance.

Things to do in Aswan
With lots of great attractions that Aswan has to offer, it might get overwhelming for you to decide what to do when you’re there. Here’s our rundown of some of the must-visit places in Aswan:
This museum is situated inside a breathtaking 19th-century villa. It has numerous artifacts, many of which date back to the Roman era or an even older time!
Abu Simbel Temple
Built by Ramses II in about 1264 BC and preserved by UNESCO in the 1970s, Abu Simbel is a mystifying temple that dates back to more than a thousand years before the birth of Christ.
Nonetheless, it is made with a highly sophisticated architectural structure — indicative of the greatness of the old Egyptian civilizations.
Monastery of St. Simeon
It is a 7th-century monastery that looks more like a fortress with rich cultural and historic value.
It was a safe haven for monks, who in the 13th century traveled to Nubia with the purpose of converting the Nubians into Christianity.
If your stay is limited to just a day in Aswan, this monastery should be at the top of your bucket list!
