Cruises start in Cairo and head south towards the Aswan dam. With so many cruise lines available, your options for shore excursions become numerous. There are Nile cruises that stop at Edfu, the temple of Horus, where you can bear witness to the longevity of ancient architecture.
Others start you off at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, or spending a day climbing the pyramids on the Giza plateau before heading out. Still, the highlight of ever Nile cruise is Luxor, where the ancient site of Karnac lies resiliently within its modern confines.
There you may stroll the aisle of rams, walk among the pillars of Amun-Re, or have your picture taken beside the giant statue of Ramses.

Whichever your pleasure there is sure to be a Nile river cruise just for you.
