#Egypt #travel Egypt’s Nile, Alexandria, and Luxor

Check your local public television station for this Rick Steves’ Europe episode or watch it on Exploring the Nile Valley from north to south, we see the highlights of Egypt. In the fabled city of Alexandria, we venture through a market wonderland, smoke a shisha, and stroll a Mediterranean promenade. In Luxor, we explore the pharaohs’ tombs and temples before sailing on a timeless felucca. Then we kick back on a riverboat cruise, enjoying iconic views of palm trees, minarets, and rustic villages. Our finale: Ramesses II’s magnificent temple at Abu Simbel.

  1. Hi Rick, that was a wonderful share. I'd like to know what type of camera did you use on this video? I'd like to get one. very beautiful capture.

  2. I've wanted to go to Egypt since I read Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile, many years ago. Due to Covid-19, and ongoing lockdowns, we are not allowed to make overseas trips at present, but one day I'll get there.

  3. it is always so exciting to travel with him, physically and virtually. this time, he has done well stepping beyond europe. with same inputs involving history,culture, food and geography.

  4. Are there any podcast self guided tours by Rick to the various Egyptian tourist sites.
    Have used them in Europe. His tour of the Louvre and the Musee D'Orsay are second to none.
