On this incredible 6 Day Nile Dahabiya Tour, you will be able to sample delicious European and Egyptian cuisine. It’s a really charming ship in a very romantic environment. You will be able to reach down and touch the Nile as they sail in magnificent serene silence, seeing views that haven’t changed in a few thousand years – yet with all the modern conveniences that first class travel provides. The cruises stop at all the popular tourist destinations, including Esna, Edfu, and Kom Ombo, as well as some of the more unique tiny villages that the larger ships can’t visit, like the Selsila Temple. The cruises run between Luxor and Aswan.
You will explore the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut, the Memnon Colossi, and the Karnak Temple today. You will then be transfer to Esna and board the boat, where the crew will greet you and help you with your luggage. We’ll then embark on your trip to Aswan. You will have your overnight at El Hegz Island.
On this day, you will sail to Edfu in the morning, enjoy breakfast at your leisure, and then take a horse-drawn carriage tour to Egypt’s largest and best-preserved landmark, Edfu Temple. Two magnificent granite statues of Horus, the Falcon God, flank the entryway. After seeing the temple, either take a ride or stroll through the market, which is a sizable marketplace where you may haggle over trinkets, spices, and fragrances. After that, we will travel to our own private island, El Fouza, where we will disembark and have dinner brought to us right next to the Nile.
We’ll embark on a leisurely trek to Gebel el Silsila Temple, one of our less-frequented stops. As we moor by the Speos of Hormheb, you’ll be astounded. Dinner will ideally be served on the upper deck of the boat or in the lit temple grounds as guests take in the serene ambiance and mood-appropriate music.
Take your time eating breakfast as we continue sailing to Kom Ombo. Listen to the sounds of the river’s varied birdlife, the water buffalo wading in the shallow water alongside the Nile, the donkeys going about their daily activities. At Kom Ombo, we go to the Greco-Roman Temple. The entire temple complex is symmetrical, with two entrances, two halls, and two sanctuaries honoring the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Haroeris (Horus the Elder). As we make our way to a tiny island where we will anchor for the night and have supper in this romantic setting.
As we cruise to Aswan, the entrance to Nubia and the Sudan, take pleasure in the privilege and elegance of bygone eras. You will have plenty of time to tour some of the sights, including the Temple of Philae, the Souk, and the unfinished Obelisk, when we arrive about 10 a.m. You will have plenty of time to get ready for our Egyptian Evening of Fun, which will feature Arabic music and Egyptian food. Put on your customized Gallabeyah.
