More than 240 riverboats sail up and down the waters of the Nile River between Luxor and Aswan, and cruising on one of them tops many an Egyptian travel itinerary. Along the way, you’ll make stops at a few of the countless temples dotting the shore, including the Temple of Edfu, built in honor of the god Horus and better maintained than any other Pharaonic structure along the river, and the Temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek.
At Aswan, marvel at the controversial Aswan High Dam, a feat of engineering responsible for harnessing the Nile and creating the world’s largest artificial lake. To put things in perspective, the dam required 18 times more building materials than the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Excellent short trip. The whirling dervish was unbelievable, worth going just for that alone. Food was good- we did not pay for the a la carte and it was excellent
An excellent trip to a rather unique location. Pleasant tour of other islands and cataracts before and after arrival, and an excellent tour guide.
ENTERTAINING AND GREAT FOOD
