Nile River Cruise

My wife and I have Just come back from a week long break cruising on the river Nile, by far the best holiday We've ever had.
From Luxor to Aswan, taking in breath taking scenery and ancient temples as well as modern Egypt.

Our boat The Royal Viking.

Due to the recent troubles the tourism industry which makes up a huge part of the economy has collapsed on a large scale, our boat would hold I believe around 200 but only 30 of us was on board, which for us all was a good thing, as we all became very good friends by the end of the trip, the places we visited were almost empty so no hanging around. But the other side of the coin was sad as the Egyptian people are desperate with a lack of money and no help from the Government, Hopefully that will change in time.



This scene if I was listening to our tour guide correctly, depicts the joining of the upper and lower part of Egypt


View from our boat.


The SS Sudan was used in the 1978 film version of Death on the Nile.


Our tour guides Mohammed (L) Hussein (R) Two of the nicest people I have ever met, great ambassadors for their country.


Me and my better half, photo taken by our carriage driver Hassan.

If you are thinking of going, I can honestly say you won't be disappointed
