Traveler, are you dreaming of the Nile River too?
It certainly has been some time since we were dreaming about new destinations, and I think now is right about a great time to do so again. I recently attended a webinar on a Nile River cruise experience--it was spectacular! One of my favorite suppliers has put together a beautiful itinerary combining both land and river experiences, and here are just a few of my favorite takeaways--enjoy!
Basics- Cruises begin sailing in Fall 2021. The land/cruise package includes 4 nights on land and 7 nights on the river, on a beautiful reimagined ship (max 68 passengers).
Cairo- You'll start and end your journey at the Four Seasons in Cairo at the First Residence. You'll have a full day to visit the Egyptian Museum, home to King Tut's treasures. Have the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx been on your bucket list also? Great! Because you'll be visiting these on your trip, as well.
Onboard Experience- One of my favorite parts of river cruising--they incorporate the local culture. Not only will you be wine-ing and dining on local dishes, but you'll also be enchanted by the onboard entertainment: belly dancers, Galabeya Party, and Darawish Show.
Along the River- I straight up felt like I was going into an Indiana Jones movie listening to the itinerary of temples and tombs that would be visited. These include the Luxor Temple and the Temple of Horus, as well as a colorful stop to the Nubian Village, Aswan.
Exclusive Visits- No luxury river cruise is complete without a few exclusives including a picnic overlooking the pyramids, a tour of Abu Simbel (pre-book opportunity), a visit to the Tomb of Nefertari, and a private lunch and tour at the Abdeen Presidential Palace.
This is just a little taste of the experience--are you salivating like I was lol? My friend Jesse and I are looking to head onto one of these next October :) Interested in joining us? Please let me know and I'll be sure to send you more details.
