Our Nile journey from Sharm el Sheikh

I love our Nile cruise holiday with excursion to Cairo. Guide Sherif is so knowledgeable and at the same time funny. Tells about ancient Egyptian history with such love and passion. We loved every minute spent with his. Nile cruise trip is a real journey to the past, sites there are so beautiful, nature is amazing and people very friendly. We enjoyed on our boat every evening watching the beautiful landscapes passing by while we were sailing to Luxor.
