When my fiancee and I were in Egypt, we had decided that we wanted to see southern Egypt but we didn't know the best way to get around. As we researched, we discovered that there was a ton to see, and we didn't wantto go it alone. After looking at some travel sites, we decided we would combine travel, accomodation, and a tour guide all in one package - a Nile River cruise! It turned out to be one of the best experiences on all my trips, and it was so worth it. It averaged about $100 a day, which included EVERYTHING except tips. I thought this was very reasonable. The cruise ship, which holds around 300 people, has state of the art rooms with amazing views, TV, a/c, etc. It also has a full buffet for every meal, 3 times a day. The views from the boat on the Nile are spectacular from the sun deck which has a bar, pool, and chairs for lounging. We docked at several ports along the way to check out the temples, monuments, etc. of ancient Egypt. Our tour guide (included in the price) told us all we needed to know about each temple and took us off the beaten path, showing us the culture of Egypt. It was truly a great experience that I will never forget.
