Egypt January 2011: Cruising the Nile

Our tour package included a ship for cruising the Nile named the Queen of Hansa. It provided a comfortable way, as you can see, for heading from the area of Aswan, Lake Nasser and the Egyptian Temples on the Island of Philae to the Temple at Luxor, about which more later.

A Felucca

Huge numbers of these sailboats, called Feluccas, cruise the Nile. You can charter one for more than a day but usually have to bring your own blanket and food.
