|To experience this legendary river in conjunction with so many wonderful ancient ruins is a stirring and rewarding experience for most, making Luxor a recommended location to visit the Nile. However, due to a decrease in tourism, if you are not yourself part of a tour group you may find the attention on the ground a little overwhelming. The banks on either side of the river are densely lined with cruise liners from a seemingly passed touristic time, and donkey-drawn carts and rag-dressed locals are a common sight. This could be seen as charmingly authentic or just a little tragic. – Sarah|

|The cheapest way to sail on the Nile is probably to take the public ferry which runs back and forth from the West and East banks here. These ferries start early and run quite late.|
|Fishing trips and sunset tours are on offer here, should you wish to enjoy the river that way. It’s recommended to take the time to view the river at different points of the day as its colours change, along with the activities of the locals using it.|
