What You Can Expect

Nile River Dinner Cruise in Cairo

Nile River Dinner Cruise in Cairo

Select your desired cruise departure and menu option when you book. Then, after pickup from your central Cairo or Giza hotel, travel to the departure jetty on the Nile River to board your cruise boat.

Your vessel for the evening is the Nile Maxim, an elegant cruiser that echoes the style of the pharaonic barges of ancient Egypt. Step aboard and admire the views of Cairo’s waterfront sights as your boat cruises on the river. Snap photos of the city lights illuminated against the darkness and reflected in the lapping Nile waters.

As you relax and take in the views, enjoy the mix of pop and Middle Eastern music played by the live house band. Then, feast on a scrumptious set menu or à la carte dinner. Although the dishes may vary, expect to enjoy specialities such as seafood and Lebanese and Chinese delights. See the Itinerary for sample menus.

Following your meal, sit back and enjoy the sparkling live entertainment. Be entertained by live folklore music and watch a colorful belly dancing and ‘tanoura’ show, the latter with wide-skirted, whirling dervish-style dancers spinning hypnotically across the floor.

After the show, step back ashore and end your dinner cruise experience with a drop-off back at your hotel.

What a fun experience! The entertainment was great! The food was okay. I didn't feel the need to have a guide on-board with us though. A simple pick up from the hotel and drop off outside the boarding area would have been sufficient. Overall, great experience!

Good service, food is your choice but people they do smoke in the cruise that's is the minus point

First experience of Egypt with some traditional cuisines and traditional floorshows. Truly a wonderful experiences that we will always remember having dinner and cruising on the famous Nile River. The tour company looked after us very well especially on our first experience of Egypt and also our visits to the Egyptian Museum and other places. I will highly recommend this Tour Company to my friends and colleagues who are planning future trips to Egypt and I look forward to booking this company again for my future travel back to Egypt to complete my sightseeing of the other historical places in Egypt.
