The Basics

A boat ride along the Nile is a quintessential Egypt experience and there are plenty of ways to get on the water. Admire Cairo's illuminated skyline on an evening dinner cruise, marvel at the ancient wonders of Luxor's East Bank and West Bank on a sunset cruise, or set sail aboard a traditional felucca for Elephantine Island or Soheil Island from Aswan.

Multi-day cruises also run up and down the Nile between Luxor and Aswan, affording spectacular views and stopping at sights such as Aswan High Dam and the temples of Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor, and Karnak.

Andrea Memphis cruise dinner
we decided to book this one because of the low price and we were a little cautious about the food. finally everything was great, the tour guide was on his time and the driver was careful and the vehicle was clean. The food was various and fresh. An unexpected good experience!!!

2-Hour Nile River Night Dinner Cruise From Cairo
Great experience, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very attentive. Even surprise me with a birthday cake for my birthday. He made sure that he stayed around to see if we needed anything on the tour and make sure we weren’t bothered if we didn’t want to be bothered

We loved this boat ride on the Nile! Hazem was a great tour guide and answered all of our questions. He made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The food and the music was great as well. However, I wish we went up and down the Nile rather than from one side to the other.

Cairo dinner cruise In Nile River.
It was a fantastic night. For the price I was not expecting more than dinner and maybe a short performance. The food was buffet style and was the best I had my whole stay in Cairo. The guide was very attentive. He checked in with me from time to time to make sure I was doing well but left me to enjoy the night. There were several song and dance performances, all of which were very entertaining. This was something I booked last minute as a means to get a good dinner but turned into one of the highlights of my trip

Nile River Dinner Cruise in Cairo
Would have been nicer if we could have taken pictures with the entertainers after the show. Food was okay. Liquor was expensive. More explanation should have been given on time of dinner, time of entertainment, where exactly were we cruising to.

Wildlife of the Nile

The vast riverbanks of the Nile River provide a habitat to a huge variety of wildlife. Most notorious is the Nile crocodile, which can reach lengths of up to 20 feet (6 meters), but more welcome sightings include African tigerfish, Vundu catfish, turtles, and tortoises. In more remote rural areas, hippopotamuses, wildebeests, rhinoceros, and mongoose flock to the Nile to drink, while the Nile Delta in the north is home to a sizable population of water birds, including little gulls and whiskered terns.
