Cruise on the Nile
This boat cruise between Aswan and Luxor, in Egypt, was the occasion to meet with the beauty of this country where the treasures of the past are at every corner: temples of Karnak, Luxor, Edfou and Esna. But Egypt is firmly facing the future, taking advantage of its touristic assets such as its ancestors inheritance and a generous weather.
Along the mighty Nile, we enjoyed this wonderful cruise and took photos capturing Egypt landscapes, scenes of everyday's life and of course temples.
This page welcomes you to a virtual tour of Egypt in three topics: landscapes, temples and egyptian people.

This category is dedicated to egyptian people
In Egypt landscapes are highly contrasted. We can define three categories:
- on the Nile, nautical landscapes including boats and traditional feloucas,
- on the banks, living landscapes with villages and cultivated lands,
- getting away from the Nile, landscapes get drier and drier which is where the desert begins
Best time to travel to Egypt
It is best to avoid summer because the temperatures are way too high. Apart from that you can travel to Egypt all year round.
