Long Nile Cruise Journey

Long Nile Cruise Journey
Long Nile Cruise Journey
Giza PyramidsTourism in Egypt was pioneered by adventurous European tourists, who set out to explore Egypt by boat during the Belle Epoque at the turn of the 20th century. Starting in Cairo, they spent weeks floating down the Nile, stopping along the way to see the ruins left behind by the Ancient Egyptians. Many things in Egypt have changed in over a century since tourists first explored the Nile by boat, but you can still enjoy the same trip south from Cairo today that enchanted so many during Egypt's Belle Epoque. For over 16 years, the Long Nile Cruise between Cairo to Aswan was not available to tourists, but as of last year this classic journey has been revived. The Long Nile Cruise is sure to be the trip of a lifetime through the ancient land of Egypt.
Cruise boats now leave regularly from Cairo heading south to Aswan and from Aswan to Cairo. Passengers can also join the cruise north to Cairo in Luxor or disembark in Luxor without continuing to Aswan. The two-week journey takes passengers to all of the major ancient sites along the Nile Valley, while also providing time to relax and enjoy the sun and the scenery of the Nile Valley. The Giza Pyramids in Cairo and the Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple in Luxor are on the itineraries of most tourists that pass through Egypt; however, they are only a small portion of the legacy that the Ancient Egyptians left to modern tourists. On the Long Cruise, passengers will visit many more sites that grant a fuller view of the accomplishments of the pharaohs and an understanding of how their art and architecture changed over thousands of years as the fortune of Ancient Egypt rose and fell repeatedly.

Long cruises range in length from 10 to 15 days depending on the direction of the trip and your chosen point of departure (Cairo, Aswan or Luxor). Cruises are available year-round, departing at least once a month from each of the three departure cities. The ships making the long cruise are luxuriously appointed to guarantee that you enjoy the utmost relaxation on a trip that provides plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Nile Valley. This classic cruise is sure to create memories for a lifetime.
