To a geographer the word meander means a bend in the river found in the middle course. Some great civilisations have settled up close to these bends and none more so than the likes of Luxor on the great River Nile which can be viewed from a cruising river ship. Highly knowledgeable Egyptologists such as Abdul-Wahab Mohamed bring these areas to life as you jump ship and visit the The Valley of the Kings and Queens, Karnak and Luxor Temple.
This area is suffering from lack of tourism due to the troubles of the last few years, they dearly need our visit and tourist dollar or these services will be lost to travellers. An ideal time to go is March or April as it is warm but not stiflingly so and it makes visiting temples and exploring Luxor easy.
