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 evening. The guide and driver were very friendly and careful with us. We took my friend's twelve-year-old son, and he had a blast. The food was really good, with enough choices to satisfy a child/picky eater. The dancing was spectacular, and the dancers were very friendly. We really enjoyed seeing Cairo at night from the river.

Maxim was AMAZING! A must do in Cairo. The guide, Mr Amr was also equally fantastic. He even went out of his way to get us something we needed from the pharmacy while we were on the boat. He was prompt upon pick up and helpful and waited for us at the gates when we returned. Highly recommended!
