It’s a country over flowing with history, with monuments and relics, and a certain allure that cannot be denied. Being one of the most impressive ancient civilisations in the world, Egypt has always been an exciting and enticing adventure for travellers. Books and movies bursting with intrigue have been set here, so it should come as no surprise that Egypt is one of the top travel destinations of 2019. And, what is a visit to Egypt without a cruise down the famous Nile River?
