Egypt day cruise information, tours, prices and online booking
Egypt day cruise is a real chance to discover the Nile. To get up close and personal with the Nile, take a felucca cruise in Cairo. Feluccas have several perks besides being a low-cost way to travel on the Nile. Their limited speed is a refreshing change of pace, you travel with a limited number of passengers, and you get to plan your itineraries. Note that women should dress modestly on a felucca. Enjoy your time by taking the lunch or the dinner in Cairo on Nile Crystal cruise, Nile Maxim Nile cruise or Nile Pharaoh cruise. The Nile at night is an experience in itself; combine it with Arabic music, a belly dance show, a rich dinner buffet, and renowned Marriott elegance; it is the Nile Maxim.
You’ll also get to see local folkloric shows, as you enjoy what is perhaps the Nile’s best dinner cruise. The Maxim sails once for lunch and twice a night, 7:30 and then again at 10:45, minimum charge applies. Operated by the Mena House Oberoi, the Nile Pharaoh cruise is a great way to spend a Cairo evening or enjoy a sumptuous lunch on the Nile. The cruise begins in Giza and traverses the Nile to the downtown area and then back, taking approximately two hours. Onboard you will be entertained by a belly dancer and an Egyptian singer, as well as a folkloric show. Western Music is also played.

Feluccas are these traditional sailboats you’ll notice in huge numbers on the Nile, whether in Luxor, Cairo or Aswan .
They have been used to sail the Nile since ancient times, when pharaohs ruled this stretch of paradise that is Egypt today. Sailing down the peaceful waters of the majestic Nile River, while watching the imposing Luxor temple on the East Bank and the pink hills of the West Bank go by, is an inspiring and incredibly relaxing experience you’re not about to forget. Felucca touts can usually be found down at the “corniche”, in front of the Winter Palace hotel.
