About the tour

Come join me on a walk of the corniche that runs alongside the famous river Nile, as we walk along I will take you through the history of the Nile and the changes in the landscape. I will tell you all about the history of the buildings as we walk along and we will delve into the Egyptian culture and their way of life. The history of the corniche and then the Nile isn't just the temples of ancient Egypt but a mixture of ancient and modern cultures and colliding in one magnificent place.

Walking along the Nile with Lesley was awesome. I felt Walking along the Nike with Lesley was awesome. The views of the sunset were especially fantastic and Lesley made sure we captured every special moment. The history of the area was interesting too. Loved seeing the ruins at the Luxor museum and other notable sites along the way. The artwork of the college students on the walls of the promenade were fantastic. I would have loved to have been able to capture more postcards of them. And the surprise boat ride down the Nile at the end was a treat!I highly recommend this tour. Thank you Lesley.

Lesley is a very knowledgeable and efficient guide. Good sense of humour and deals very well with the public. Couple of times loss of signals but that is not her fault. Shame that there is always a lot of trite questions from some users but to be expected.
