According to Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian, the Egyptian civilisation was ‘the gift of the Nile’ – perhaps never have so few words so clearly encapsulated the very basis of a whole culture and its empire. The Nile then, as now, is the lifeblood of Egypt and it’s extraordinary just how little has changed along its verdant banks over the millennia. Our five-star Nile cruise explores the mighty monuments, intriguing history and extraordinary artistic masterpieces from the oldest of all the ancient civilisations.
