Luxor Boat Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 12. 6 Luxury Cabins. A Dahabiya cruise on the river Nile allows you to explore the ancient sites of Egypt in a traditional way. Our company owned and family run boat takes you on a Luxury Dahabiya cruise which combines historical and mystical sightseeing with the peace and tranquillity of a Nile cruise as you dreamt it should be. Enjoy delicious organic food prepared by our expert Egyptian chef, accompanied by your own Masters degree qualified Egyptologist. Rates are per person per night

Dahabiya ‘Dream’ is the name of our traditional Nile cruise boat and Explore travel and Cruises want you to have the holiday of a lifetime by experiencing the magic of Egypt in a special and memorable way. During the 19th Century, gentry visitors travelled the Nile on luxurious private yachts known as Dahabiyas. These boats are beautifully crafted wooden sailing ships and allow you to experience the Nile in a nostalgic way. To be called a genuine Dahabiya the boat must have no engine and so sailing on Dream is peaceful and vibration free and is truly a unique river cruise experience. Our company owned and family run Dahabiya ‘Dream’ has been hand crafted to create an authentic sail boat as used by travellers and explorers discovering the wonders and mysteries of the Nile. This Luxury Dahabiya Dream Nile cruise itinerary combines historical and mystical sightseeing with the peace and tranquillity of a Nile cruise as you dreamt it should be. You will visit all the famous sites including the Valley of Kings and Karnak Temple as well as others not on the main tourist map such as El Kab and some of the remote beautiful islands along the Nile. With all your meals and soft drinks, tea and coffee included we want you to relax and enjoy the experience as you make your own journey of discovery on this truly luxury Nile cruise.

Nile Tour

  • 5 of 5
This was a trip that was full of surprises from start to finish. The boat was exemplary - clean and luxurious in every way.
There were about the same number of crew as guests, about 11 so one was treated royally and with great friendship.
The trips to see the ancient Egyptians ruins was accompanied by someone who knew what he was talking about and had great insight. A number of us took the early morning balloon to see the Valley of the kings and Queens - brilliant and worth the extra cost.
The food was exquisite and an evening on the shore of the Nile for a BBQ and dancing under the stars was well organized and we all had great fun.
It is a great shame that Egypt has been in such turmoil but I can assure you that not once did politics ever come into the equation and spoiled our adventure.
I would highly recommend this vacation and Linda will be there to answer all of your questions as she did mine.

Elegant Egypt

  • 5 of 5
I don't normally do this - I don't do Facething, or Twit, or any other such. I don't like it. However, I am networking this wonderful trip on the Nile like crazy. The Dream is just that. A wonderful, elegant, dreamlike, sytlish saunter back into the 1930's...

The Dahibyia was spotless, my cabin was gorgeous and spacious, the food divine, the staff were there 24/7 but never, never obtrusive. In fact, they were intrinsic to the enjoyment of the whole trip. And our own personal guide for all the temples enroute.. and so much knowledge. It really was fantastic.

If you want luxury, tranquility and just plain sailing along like you something really special - then you have to this! You just have to.
