You can go on a cruise on the Nile from Alexandria, Cairo or Luxor (the closest is in Hurghada), this means sailing against the Nile current, from North to South. There is also a “South-North” option, in this case, the cruise ship departs from Aswan, and all the sights and monuments are viewed by tourists in the reverse order. Most often, these cruises are offered as part of a General tour to Egypt – three or four days tourists sail on the Nile, the rest of the time they rest in hotels in Hurghada or Cairo. Our compatriots on the cruise ship are accompanied by a Russian-speaking guide.
