    Looks like a wonderful adventure!
    We never made it as far south as Abu Simbel but hope to return to Egypt in the future, your river boat tour has us intrigued ;-)

    Love boating up the Nile. Would do it again in a heartbeat and now sounds like a very good time.

    You are lucky to have been able to see things in a lot more authentic way – without all the tourist hordes!

    When you said, “Others felt discomforted by the visible signs of poverty. That’s not the Revolution, that’s just Egypt.” I nodded along. This is why travel is essential. We need to see how the rest of the world lives. Thanks for a great post!

    Glad I “stumbled upon” your site.

    I’m loving the lack of crowds here! Have been in Egypt two weeks now and have yet to wait in a queue or experience any kind of inconvenience. All in all, a great time to visit!

    I have done a nile cruise and visited Egypt a couple of other times too and i think its an astonishing place, incredible history, but more so the poeple are terrific… whether haggling over an allabaster jar or enjoying their service on the boats its all good…

    Everyone should visit, but to me the cruise was the best way

    Egypt’s a great place to visit when it is less busy. So envious of the Rameses experience. And wondering when Libya will be safe to visit…

    Four of us traveled to Egypt in 2009. Our trip was arranged by a local guide that was recommended by previous travelers. The arrangements were wonderful and we enjoyed it all including the trip up the Nile. Even in 2009 our boat was more than half empty. I have thought a lot about the wonderful people we met on that trip and how they are doing.
