Nile cruises

Anyone who has travelled along the Nile River, either on one of Egypt's modern floating hotels, or by other transport, usually feel as though they have stepped back in time.

Nile cruises, 19th century style

Along with modern cruisers on the Nile, one can also see upon the Nile ghosts from a bygone time when Victorian travellers first began to explore this ancient land as tourists.
