I have never seen myself as a cruising person, rather as a middle-aged backpacker. However, my son dreams about a cruise on the Nile and I would like to know whether there are any options. Are there any "hop-on-hop-off"-kind of cruises? Less formal? More child-friendly?
My dream would be a less formal alternative with lots of freedom and flexibility. And then combine the cruise with some other adventures: Cairo, for sure, perhaps some beach-time and, if possible, a camel-safari.
And what about travelling alone, a blond eleven year old, with his single mother in Egypt?
We are both experienced travellers and have travelled together just the two of us on all different continents. And we like to be a bit off the beaten-track and hate too touristic places. Where should we go? And how?
