Imagine going back in time, to one of the oldest civilisations known to mankind - where old temples lie waiting – grand and silent witnesses of the past. Where kings and queens reigned supreme, and pyramids speared into the sky, guarding the secrets of the dead. Imagine sailing on the longest river in the world. A river that has been worshipped by gods, locals and royalty alike. A river that has witnessed the birth of legends, has brought floods and favour to many, and has fertilized the valley for thousands of years. 

Yes, we’re talking about the great Egyptian civilization and the mighty Nile river. Explore the power, beauty and history that both have to offer, by taking an Egyptian Holiday and a Nile river cruise.

Sights to See

Egypt is a fascinating country, with a long and glorious history. On the Nile cruise, you’ll be going back in time, when pharaohs and queens ruled the land. It’s a whole new world to explore. 

With the Egyptian Extravaganza with Nile Cruise Package, you’ll travel over both land and water. You’ll visit iconic locations like Alexandria, the mighty pyramids guarded by the majestic Sphinx, colourful bazaars and markets, and stunning Egyptian temples. You’ll see a civilisation that has endured the test of time, and places that still have stories to tell, even to this day. Here’s just a few places to visit in Egypt:

Alexandria

Named for one of the greatest Kings in history, Alexander the Great, this Egyptian city is only a 3-hour ride from Cairo. This culturally diverse city is also a port, welcoming the waves of the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea. You can visit landmark buildings like Bibliotheca Alexandrina (a reimagining of the ancient Great Library), the wide waterfronts, the stern Catacombs of Kom el-Shuqqafa, the lush Montazah Gardens, Cleopatra’s Palace, Pompey’s Pillar and more. There are so many sights to see and places to be, it’ll take your breath away.

Cairo

Historical significance can be found in every corner of Cairo - from the stunning Cairo Egyptian Museum founded in 1857, to the Al Azhar Mosque which was built in AD 972, the 9th Century Hanging Church to the Khan el-Khalili souk (bazaar) established in AD 1400. However, no visit to Cairo is complete without a trip to the famous Pyramids of Giza. The three pyramids – Cheops, Chepren and Mycerinus – guarded by the silent and strong Sphinx. 

Aswan

A commercial and strategic city of great archaeological significance, Aswan is the southern frontier of Ancient Egypt. 230 km south of this bustling city is UNESCO world heritage site - Abu Simbel temples. These magnificent twin temples (made from two large rock formations) were built for Pharaoh Ramesses II and his queen, but also dedicated to the Gods - Amun, Ra-Horakhty, and Ptah. A fascinating sight to behold is one of Aswan’s treasures - Temple of Two Gods, which worships the crocodile God and Falcon God. 

Edfu 

Scarce in population but rich in architectural beauty, the town of Edfu lies west of the tranquil Nile and houses one of the most exquisite Egyptian temples – Temple of Edfu. Dedicated to God Horus, this is one the most preserved shrine in Egypt. Its wall inscriptions have many stories to tell about the people of the Hellenistic period. Legends of drama, conflict and religion adorn the temple with age old secrets. 5km to the south of Edfu, lies the remains of one of seven, pyramids dedicated to King Huni of the 3rd dynasty. The purpose of these pyramids, however, remains a mystery till date.

Luxor

Deemed as the best open-air museum in the world, Luxor is the resting place of many Kings, Queens, and noblemen of Egyptian society. The ruins of complexes - Karnak and Luxor, stand in harmony with the rest of the city. A perfect blend of the old and the new. Of great significance is The Valley of Kings, which houses more than 63 tombs and chambers. The temple of Queen Hatshepsut, marks one of the most peaceful rulings in Egyptian history. The mortuary was built in honour of the first female monarch – Queen Hatshepsut, daughter of Thutmose I.

We hope that we’ve painted a vivid picture in your mind about some of the best places to visit in Egypt. While you dream of the pyramids, palaces and pharaohs, we’ll handle the rest.
