Dahabiya..
Tailor-made Sailing Nile Cruise Itinerary

Tour Highlight

The “Dahabiya" will take you back in time to a gentler, more gracious era in cruises experience between Luxor and Aswan. A unique experience down the Nile by traditional small sailing vessel that was commonly used during those elegant days of the monarchy (1920s - 40s) when aristocrats and sophisticated travelers loved to cruise the Nile in style. We've revived those elegant days with modern comforts and conveniences. Dahabiya, in Arabic means ‘golden boat’ derived from the historical boats of the Pharaohs and nobility of ancient Egypt which were painted gold. Dahabiya Nile cruises accommodate up to 10-20 passengers. Accommodations are in separate double cabins, each with private w/c and shower. These boats are designed to entertain guests on the center of the upper deck. A spacious deck and a good size dining and lounging area and a comfortable cabin size are customary features. The sailing duration of the Dahabiya Nile cruises are also flexible, typically cruises are 3 nights or up to 7 nights programs. Since Dahabiya boats are privately chartered, the sailing schedule is totally flexible according to your personal holiday travel needs.
