Sitting on the banks of the River Nile at sunset looking out over the Valley of the Kings has to be one of the most humbling experiences you can have.

With traditional felucca’s silhouetted against the crimson sky and the call to prayer ringing out over the rooftops, it’s like being transported to a bygone era. If you are looking for history, culture and the chance to immerse yourself in an ancient civilization then you can’t beat Egypt.
