River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Cairo
    Sat, Feb 08, 2025

    It has been said of Egypt's exhilarating capital, "He who has not seen Cairo has not seen the world.” Certainly, the heart of the nation beats with an unbridled passion in this city made prosperous over millennia as a stopover for Sahara caravans on trade routes to Byzantium. Amid the stimulating strum, the insistent beauty of everyday life reigns here, with the serene Nile sliding through like an entrancing serpent. Cairo's very age mesmerizes; its monuments have stood here for more than 5,000 years.

  4. Day 4
    Luxor
    Tue, Feb 11, 2025

    Luxor is set on the east bank of the Nile River and once served as the capital of Egypt’s New Kingdom. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site lined with beautiful colonial hotels and some of the world’s most ancient and significant ruins. Many consider this city, watched over by graceful single-sailed feluccas plying the Nile, one of the world’s great open air museums. The sprawling Temples of Luxor and Karnak on the east bank are linked by the ancient Avenue of the Sphinxes. On the west bank, in the Valley of the Kings, lie the tombs of Egypt’s great pharaohs.

  5. Day 5
    Qena
    Wed, Feb 12, 2025

    Known in ancient Egypt as Caene, Qena’s situation on the banks of the Nile River has bolstered its prosperity over millennia. Merchants and travelers have long journeyed here from the Red Sea, through the valley, bringing goods from Persia and beyond. The Sheikh el-Qenawi Mosque on the main square serves as a monument to the city’s rich and all-embracing Islamic and Sufi past. Qena is mostly known as the gateway to the magnificent ruins of the Dendera Temple. Its stone gate and towering columns adorned with hieroglyphics are some of Egypt’s best-preserved structures.

  6. Day 6

  7. Day 7
    Esna
    Fri, Feb 14, 2025

    Ancient Egyptians knew Esna as Latopolis, named for the largest of the perch species that swam in the Nile’s sacred waters. Its ancient past lives on in the colorful street market overflowing with fabrics, carpets, brassware, mother-of-pearl keepsakes and more. Esna’s glorious Temple of Khnum is celebrated for its 1st-century Roman Hypostyle Hall, 24 columns topped with intricately carved floral capitals. Its walls are adorned with images of Roman emperors making offerings to Egyptian gods.

  8. Day 8
    Aswan
    Sat, Feb 15, 2025

    Aswan stands at what was once the northern border of ancient Nubia, a remarkable region that encompassed the land eastward from the Libyan Desert to the Red Sea and northward from central Sudan to southern Egypt. As a UNESCO Creative City of Crafts and Folk Art, present-day Aswan strives to preserve its rich heritage. Its efforts include the Aswan Folk Dance Troupe that performs internationally, the Nubian Museum showcasing Nubian daily life and craftwork, and the Aswan International Symposium of Sculpture encouraging the practice of ancient Egyptian granite stone carving.

Viking Mississippi very disappointed there were no swimming pool, just infinity plunger pool and no casino due small ship very good food served. Thrilled to meet Steve Azar, famous music like Elvis Presley.

Viking offers a quality trip, loved it!

Viking is always are go to company and also using Affordable Tour. Viking goes above and beyond on their services and making sure everything goes as smooth as possible. Our ship was changed to the Viking Hemming and it even had a pool.

Wished we could have experienced a stay at the Peabody hotel in Memphis. Was told this was not possible. Was not true. Needed more time at Graceland. All other aspects were great!

Viking is well organized, efficient and just pleasant. Their tour director is one of the best we’ve encountered.

The trip was everything we expected plus more because we also were fortunate to have perfect weather the entire time. The Viking staff is always exceptional. All tour guides on the excursions we selected were excellent, well informed and helpful. Our tour director, was a master of organization and attentiveness. We cannot come up with any complaints.

Super cruse. Only thing we had an issue with was the breakfast hours was to short forcing us to hurry or miss breakfast.

If you're into Egyptian History, this is a Wonderful trip experience.

We are big Viking fans having sailed with them 10 times. The Christmas market sailings are always magical. Knowing what I know now I would not book a last sailing before they lay the ships up for winter. It seems some maintenance was simply deferred for their upkeep period instead of being addressed. For example, one of the two coffee stations was out of order the entire time and the second failed near the end of the voyage, It also seemed they were not fully staffed which led to a lot of wait time for meal service.

Everything was great No complaints from me Service, food and people great

Viking had the best staff for attentiveness to every need. They supplied large umbrellas (rained every day) and gave out water for excursions. The guides for the excursions were local but English was easily understood and they were both knowledgeable and able to entertain. French balcony was perfect for fall trip.

Viking may cost a little more, but they offer a complete package that is worry free.

We had a great time seeing all the castles and cathedrals on our river cruise from Paris to Zurich.
