After a couple days touring Cairo, you'll want to escape and take in all of the scenic views down the Nile. Most cruises offer massage and your muscles will be screaming for this after a few days. 😁

Always nice to go back and have one of the cruises at night passing by all the nice places old and new along the way enjoying Cairo at night.
