Egypt travel guide

Ruins · Scuba & Snorkeling · Monuments
Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.

Nile River Valley travel guide

Ruins · Monuments · Cemeteries
Nile River Valley represents one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world, which supported human life as early as 5500 BCE. A tour of Nile River Valley includes visiting some of Egypt's best preserved ancient tombs, temples, and cities, as well as observing both the barren deserts and the fertile fields of corn, sugar cane, sesame, and alfalfa. Boats regularly cruise the waterway and visitors can choose between short trips to get a sense of the river's importance and magnitude, and weeklong excursions designed to provide a deeper insight into the country's history, topography, and cultural heritage.
