Nile River Valley represents one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world, which supported human life as early as 5500 BCE. A tour of Nile River Valley includes visiting some of Egypt's best preserved ancient tombs, temples, and cities, as well as observing both the barren deserts and the fertile fields of corn, sugar cane, sesame, and alfalfa. Boats regularly cruise the waterway and visitors can choose between short trips to get a sense of the river's importance and magnitude, and weeklong excursions designed to provide a deeper insight into the country's history, topography, and cultural heritage. Add Nile River Valley and other Egypt destinations to your travel plans using our Egypt travel planner.
