Aswan to Cairo Nile cruise holiday

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

The longest historical journey

5

While I have traveled to Egypt several times but I never go to the Nile . We have visited many beautiful temples learned a lot about histoy of Egypt, The contrast between the desert and the Egyptian counteryside is beautiful. Such journey one must make in life.
