Different combinations of cruises available

Many choices for the cruise are available according to our need and flexibility. I tried to cover as many as possible. Luxor-Aswan cruises-Cruising between Luxor and Aswan was very relaxing. I could visit many ancient temples along with enjoying the scenic beauty along the Nile. The Lake Nasser cruise was more relaxing providing a tranquil experience. I got to experience the monuments and ruins of ancient Nubia and temples at Abu Simbel.

I had the option of cruising in historic steamer and could have enjoyed luxury and leisure of the royalty. Option of sailing on a yacht is available too, which could have been more exclusive and luxurious, giving me full privacy. But I was quite happy and satisfied with my Nile tours to Egypt, enjoying the scenic beauty with the beautiful ancient ruins and temples and monuments along the Aswan- Luxor-Cairo stretch. The experience was fulfilling and I am yearning to go back again and enjoy the unexplored parts.

The Chessboard City of Alexander the Great

The second largest city of Egypt after Cairo is the city of Alexandria. Geographically, it is located on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt around 179 kms in the north of Cairo. It is unique city named after the name of its creator, The Alexander the Great in 333 BCE. On his way to Oracle temple of Amun at the Siwa Oasis, the Alexander stayed at the village of Re-qdt that lied between the Mediterranean Sea and the lake of Mariott and decided to build a great city on that location.

In 323 BC, Alexander died in Babylon without ever seeing the city that was after his name. However, Dinocratis planned the city very differently like a chessboard, where two main streets got interlaced both vertically and horizontally extending both east to west and north to south. It had five districts named after first five Greek alphabets – Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon. Among these, alpha was basically a royal district that homes royal palaces, temples, museum, libraries and gardens; Beta was the district of Greek aristocracy; Gamma was home to local greek people; Delta was home to foreign minorities like Syrians, Persian and Jews and lastly Epsilon was home to local Egyptians.

Qaitbay Citadel

In the Roman Era, the city was built afresh by Romans bearing the name Nicopolis which means the city of victory. However, most of this was damaged due to disturbances, wars, revolts; natural disasters etc.

Some of the important monuments of the city of Alexandria at present which dates back to Ptolemaic era are includes, Moustafa Kamel, El-Anfoushy, El-Shatby and El-Wardain.
