Nile Cruise

Highly recommended
Floating down the Nile is one of the best ways to observe the close relationship between Egypt and its river. Every week almost 300 cruises set off between Luxor and Aswan, via Esna, Edfu, Kom Ombo; the large boats are kitted out with entertainment facilities for passengers. Those looking for authenticity can opt for a short trip on board a felucca - the traditional wooden sailing boats are less sophisticated but you will be closer to the Nile.
