About Nile River Things to do

"Egypt is the gift of the Nile" It's an Egyptian quote that circulates as an expression of the Egyptian love for and pride for the Nile River. They have depended on the Nile River since the beginning of time. The Nile River is the main source of water, so the ancient Egyptians decided to settle next to it to build the ancient civilization and Nile River attractions that we visit today through Egypt tours on the banks of the Nile River.

If you are planning to visit Egypt, then you should consider adding the Egypt Nile cruise tours to your bucket list, as it is a very unique experience to discover the tourism in Egypt that is not comparable to any other attractions and things to do in Egypt.

Egypt Nile river attractions are one of the classic vacations in Egypt, and all travelers would like to cruise the Nile River to explore the temples that surround you from all directions in Aswan and Luxor excursions.

The Nile cruise sightseeing in Egypt usually takes place in Aswan and Luxor covering most tours in Luxor in addition to Aswan excursions. Because you can see the great temples while sailing through Egypt, these two cities have elevated Nile cruises to the top trending destination in Egypt. Nile cruises are meant to be Egypt's best tours for those who seek culture, history, and luxurious accommodation while sailing the Nile Valley.

On the long side of the Nile, the East and West banks of the Nile River are stuffed with archaeological sites, monuments, and temples. Huge pillars flanked the enormous temples with their great statues of the kings and pharaohs of ancient Egypt.

Luxor east bank

Luxor, without a doubt, is the richest place where you can find almost 1/3 of the world's monuments and a lot of things to do in Luxor, which makes it like an open-air museum. Luxor Temple is one of the most interesting temples that were built during the New Kingdom by King Amenhotep III, but many additions were added by King Ramses II and the golden King Tutankhamon.

The Karnak Temple, which is separated from the Temple of Luxor by means of a passage flanked by sphinxes and known as the Avenue of the Sphinxes, is as big as a small village. The Karnak Temple is seen from above while on a hot air balloon ride in Luxor. The balloon tour will let you see the Nile River sightseeing and the great view, which will be the highlight of your day tours in Egypt.

Not very far, on the other side of the Nile (West Bank), are the colossal statues of King Amenhotep III, known as the Colossi of Memnon, gigantic seated statues of the king that are not very well-preserved.

One of the stops that you shouldn’t miss during the exploration of the Nile River attractions is Hatshepsut Temple, or what’s known as the Temple of Deir El-Bahari of Queen Hatshepsut, at the foot of the mountain, which reflects how great and powerful this Queen Hatshepsut is, considering the time, 3480 years ago, a whole empire was ruled by a woman.

The Valley of the Kings is a substitute for the royal necropolis for the Kings of the New Kingdom other than the huge pyramids of Egypt that were built during the great Old Kingdom, like the great pyramid of King Khufu Cheops, considered the top of the wonders of the world, the great pyramids of King Khafra Chephren, and the smallest pyramid of the Giza Pyramids of King Menkaure Mycerinus in Giza Necropolis. Kings like Tutankhamen used very skilled workmanship and artisans to cut their burial tombs through the bottom of the mountain to avoid being robbed, and the area also had a city for the artisans who had lived and been buried at the place known as Deir El-Madina. The Valley of Kings may not attract you from the top of the earth, but once you enter the tomb, you will be surprised. It's one of the best Egypt luxury tours.

Aswan attractions

Despite Aswan being the address of peace due to its islands, it has unparalleled temples like the temple of Kom Ombo, which was dedicated to the local crocodile god Sobek.
