Aswan and Luxor
Enchant your eyes with the charming Nile Cruise tours in Egypt during our 4-Days Nile River Cruise from Aswan to Luxor aboard the deluxe Steigenberger Minerva Nile cruise ship. Visit the most significant ancient sites and tours in Egypt, like the Valley of Kings during Luxor West Bank Tours of the Nile River, which is a great burial ground for the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt during the new kingdom of Egypt history. After about 1500 B.C. the Pharaohs were no longer interested in building great pyramids like those in the Giza necropolis in which to be buried. Instead, most of them decided to be buried in rock-cut tombs in the Valley of the Kings as the final place where they rest in peace away from the tomb thieves.
