After a couple days touring Cairo, you'll want to escape and take in all of the scenic views down the Nile. Most cruises offer massage and your muscles will be screaming for this after a few days. 😁

Always nice to go back and have one of the cruises at night passing by all the nice places old and new along the way enjoying Cairo at night.

It's the longest river in the world. Where do you even begin to rate is on a 1-5 scale? It's great and all, but it really depends on where you see it. I recommend a boat trip too.

Nothing special,from my point of view.A very wide river,there are some islands on it in Cairo,the water is rather dirty,from place to place you can see "islands" of wastes floating on its water.Not so many boats as I expected for such a big river.
