Built in the 1960s, the dam spans the Nile River, more than two miles across and incorporating 16 times the amount of material that went into the Great Pyramid at Giza. It provides irrigation and hydroelectric power to much of Egypt, and the reservoir that formed behind it, Lake Nasser, is 340 miles long.

    Luxury 10-day tour (Cairo and Nile cruise)
    We booked a 10-day luxury tour that started in Cairo and included a 4-night Nile cruise. “Expedition Egypt” arranged all of our accommodations, flights (Cairo-Luxor and Aswan-Cairo around the cruise), guides, and excursions, and we couldn’t have been happier. Osama communicated in a timely fashion and answered all of our questions beforehand. The entire trip was seamless.
    All of our “handlers” at the airport and hotels were on time, pleasant, and efficient. We stayed at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza in Cairo, and it was easily the nicest hotel we’ve stayed in; the customer service was outstanding. We had adjoining rooms with balconies overlooking the Nile and could even see the pyramids.
    Our guide in Cairo, Rania, is working on her PhD and was incredibly knowledgeable. We spent the first day at the Egyptian Museum, and she helped us understand everything we would be seeing in the coming days. Rania is very personable, and even our three teens were comfortable asking her questions about Egyptian history and modern culture. As a guide, she did a wonderful job asking what we were interested in and planning stops and places to eat. She also took us to the pyramids (you must ride the camels!), and on an optional tour of Islamic Cairo. We were blown away by all of it!
    Our guide on the river cruise, George, was so helpful and engaging. We loved his storytelling at each temple. He showed us the highlights and gave us free time to explore each place, too. We loved seeing Luxor at night! He answered our endless questions and taught us so much about the mythology. He clearly loves his job and the subject matter. We skipped the Nubian Village on the last day and instead opted for the Botanical Garden. George added a motorboat ride beforehand that took us into back channels, where we listened to birds and saw papyrus on the riverbank. It was exactly the nature break we needed.
    Our ship was the M/S Sunray, and we really enjoyed cruising the Nile. There were only two long stretches of cruising, but it was through beautiful countryside and was totally relaxing after three days in busy, loud Cairo. The rooms were decent size and well appointed. The only negative thing to say was that the carpet was a bit worn throughout the boat (more like 3- or 4 stars-worthy), but the food and service/staff were definitely 5 stars! We are mostly vegetarian and appreciated that the buffet always had a vegetable main. Our waiters were great and developed a rapport with the kids, too.
    I would unequivocally recommend “Journey to Egypt.” I normally prefer to make my own arrangements, but I would have spent an inordinate amount of time planning the logistics of this trip. It was so nice to have a car/driver always waiting for us, tickets pre-purchased, and someone who speaks Arabic to guide us. All we had to do was take pictures, eat tahini, relax, and take it all in.
