We boarded the stunning new AmaDahlia ship on the river Nile in Luxor after having spent three luxurious nights in Cairo. With the focus of ancient Egypt, our small group had the most experienced knowledgeable Egyptologist to guide us and open the pages of history for us. Every day of the 12 day journey was exceptional. One of the many benefits to sailing on the AmaDahlia is there are a full seven nights sailing on the river Nile. This allowed us to experience more of ancient Egypt with the comfort of time. The luxurious comfort of the AmaDahlia, personalized service we received, exceptional local guides, and historical insights filled our days with moments of awe and intrigue. Special access to temples and tombs were included and we experienced exclusive behind the gates entrance to places such as the tomb of Queen Nefertari where we learned her importance during her lifetime. But to witness the inside of her tomb was a highlight. The colorful paintings inside are a step back to 1200 BC and our Egyptologist brought this experience fully together with telling us about the life of her and the society during her life. Very special care was planned for our comfort, safety and enjoyment. The timing of our visits to the ancient sights was also strategically planned to allow for less people, stunning sunsets and magic moments. I highly recommend the AmaDahlia ship with AmaWaterways Cairo and river Nile 7 night cruise.
