Pick up from Cairo airport. After a Cairo start at the pyramids, a trip down the Nile from Aswan to Luxor is an experience of a lifetime. Taste the African life in Aswan, and then start your river trip to the heart of Egypt to meet with Egyptian history and culture. Final departure from Cairo airport.
It is quite logic that traveling on the Nile from north to south is expressed as "DOWN THE NILE". However, the truth is the opposite. The Nile runs the other way around, from south to north, and traveling down the Nile is to travel from south to north. The Nile is the longest river in the world with 6680 K.m and It runs in 10 countries.
