Egypt and the Nile
Welcome to Egypt and the Nile
The purpose of this website is to act as a guide for those visiting Egypt and especially
the Nile valley area, whether it be cruising the Nile itself or taking a holiday
break staying in one of Luxor’s many hotels. The information on this site may help
you make up your mind as to whether you should take advantage of these options or
not. Organized tours in the area, especially if you are on a fixed schedule, such
as those followed by the cruise boats, condense a massive amount of sightseeing into
a very short period, so to get the most out of your visit, it pays to do your homework
if you wish to get the best out of your holiday. To help you, we have included information
on some of the sights that will be on your itinerary such as the mortuary temple
of Hatshepsut at Deir el-
Our intension is to add many more pages to the site, and to further develop the information on our existing pages. If for any reason you wish to contact us, please feel free to visit our contact page, we would be happy to hear from you, especially if you have any Tips and Tricks that you think might be useful to pass on to those thinking of choosing Egypt as a holiday destination.
The longest river in the world, the Nile runs in a northerly direction from the mountains of East Africa in the south, to the Mediterranean sea in the north. A Nile cruise is a very popular way to experience Egypt and what it has to offer the visitor. A good time to visit is between October to the middle of April, when the weather is a little cooler, although the majority of the cruise boats can be found operating throughout the year.
