The Egypt Enchantment Nile Cruise
Join us for a journey of wonder.

Experience Overview

Join us as we sail in a deluxe River Boat on a journey designed for ultimate wonder and beauty. Where we enter Temples dedicated to pharaohs long ago, and perceive their journey to the other shores, carried on boats of faith and longing. 

Experience the matchless beauty of sunset on statues and heiroglyph-etched pillars. Join the quest to bridge time from then to now, from there to here. Find ourselves entranced with the dance of delight in life. 

Walk among the Great Pyramids and gaze on the Sphinx. Enter the ancient library site in Alexandria, where a state-of-the-art modern library now stands. Dare to experience Cleopatra territory! 

From horse-drawn carriage to deluxe coach, from mighty pyramids to mysterious sphinx, from water to sunrise, and exuberance to silence, this is a journey to be entered body and soul – and we will never be the same!
