On one of our many Egypt Tours you will see the mysterious Nile River, the world's longest river.
It flows from Lake Victoria in East Africa to its mouth at the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt. It passes through rainforest, mountain, savanna, and swamp until, on the final leg of its journey, it winds its way through Egypt like a giant snake, passing through some of the driest desert on earth. With a name from a Greek word meaning "river valley," the Nile River played a crucial role in the founding of Egyptian civilization.
Mount Sinai is where Moses received the 10 Commandments from God and Abu Simbel, in the south of Egypt below Aswan, is home to the jaw-dropping Temple of Ramses II.

Not only is it the longest River in the world, it is also incredibly beautiful and a great way to relax and watch ancient Egypt unfold before your eyes.
