The journey is steeped in history, with highlights including Beni Hassan with its row of rock cut tombs adorned with paintings; Tel el Amarna, the short-lived capital of pharaoh Akhenaten; the Red and White Monasteries with their insight into Coptic Egypt as well as Abydos Temple, dedicated to Osiris the God of the Underworld. The longer cruise allows for time to relax and enjoy leisurely river cruising while soaking up the scenery and gaining a fascinating insight into local life alongside this majestic river.
