Uniworld's River Tosca: The romance of cruising the Nile

Have you sailed on River Tosca? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.

Snapshot

Cruise the Nile in a manner once reserved for queens and pharaohs. Experience Egypt and the Nile’s most wondrous sites in style and luxury when you set sail on an eight-day voyage aboard Uniworld's River Tosca.  A boutique ship, River Tosca is a safe, comfortable and exhilarating way to experience Egypt and the famous Nile River culture and scenery. Wander among the towering ruins of the Temple of Karnak, the world’s largest ancient religious complex, and the entrancing Temple of Luxor. Visit temples dedicated to Hathor, Horus, and other mythological figures, and pay homage to the country’s first female ruler at the Temple of Hatshepsut. Follow in the footsteps of renowned scholars and explorers as you venture forth into the Valley of the Kings, the ancient burial grounds of Egyptian royalty. Get acquainted with Nubian culture during a home visit with a local family, and enjoy an exhilarating ride in a felucca, a traditional Nile River sailboat.

Egypt can assault your senses; unlike many other river cruising destinations, the country is poor and in constant political flux, and vendors can be aggressive, which is why the River Tosca offers a secure, welcome respite from the chaos.

The captivating itinerary begins and ends in Cairo, where you’ll visit the famous Egyptian Museum and its stupendous and unrivaled collection of pharaonic artifacts, including treasures recovered from the tomb of King Tutankhamun. Journey to Giza to gaze upon the mighty ancient Pyramids and the timeworn, enigmatic Sphinx.
