Nile And The Red Sea Tour

On this Egyptian adventure we explore the Nile aboard traditional 'felucca' sailing boats. We enjoy local food as we sail down the river and sleep under the stars on the deck. We also visit ancient Egypt's most famous sites including the great Pyramids of Giza, the mysterious Sphinx, Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings.
