Nile River Cruises in Cairo

By Viator, January 2018

4.5 273 Reviews | Add your review

The Nile, the world's longest river at 4,258 miles (6,853 kilometers), has long been the lifeblood of Egypt, and a cruise along this famous waterway ranks as a highlight of a trip to the desert country. Here are some options for exploring the waters of the Nile River.

Sightseeing Cruises
You haven’t seen Cairo until you’ve seen it from the Nile, and a river cruise affords the perfect opportunity. One of the most popular—and traditional—ways to explore these iconic waters is aboard a traditional wooden Egyptian sailboat, known as a felucca. An evening sunset sail displays Cairo in a warm evening glow, as you bob in the water, cold drink in hand. See the Cairo skyline from the water—its skyscrapers, bridges, and waterfront promenades—and catch a glimpse of day-to-day life on the banks of this famous river, as traditional fishing boats and feluccas go about their business.

Dinner Cruises
If you’re looking for a special night out, Cairo-style, book a Nile River dinner cruise. Options  include an open buffet, set menu, or à la carte menu dinner, and some even feature belly dancing or tanoura (a folk dance similar to the whirling dervish) while you overlook the sparkling city lights of the Egyptian capital.
