Nile cruises are the most popular way to visit Egypt’s greatest archaeological treasures, and include guided excursions throughout their routes.
Being the most popular way of seeing the sites, the Nile does become very crowded and hectic. However, given the relative scarcity of good hotels in the region, a Nile cruise is still, for many people, the best way to see Upper Egypt.
