Dig deeper on an Avalon river cruise through Egypt sailing down the meandering and mesmerising Nile. From the baffling construction of Giza’s pyramids to the enigmatic burial practices of the pharaohs, no land holds as many secrets as ancient Egypt. Stories of opulence and riches await as you make your way from the Great Sphinx to the even greater Valley of the Kings, all while sailing in state-of-the-art comfort aboard the elegant MS Farah.
See the impressive monuments of Luxor and Karnak – ancient cities whose combined populations once swelled to more than one million. Walk among the pillars of the colossal Temple of Amun Ra and along the Avenue of the Sphinxes.
Enjoy beautiful Kom Ombo for a short walk to its bluff-top twin temples. The right side is dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek-Ra, while the left side is dedicated to the falcon god Horus.
Board a felucca (traditional wooden sailing vessel) for panoramic views of the ancient city, before putting your bartering skills to the test in the vast treasure-filled labyrinth of Khan al Khali Souk bazaar.
