8-Day Nile Cruises

8 Day Nile Cruises

Egypt is a country which has been blessed with an almost infinite number of ancient monuments which date back thousands of years. No matter where about in the country you go, there is always something fascinating to see.

When people think of Egypt, they immediately think about the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx, all of which are located on the outskirts of Cairo. However, most of Egypt’s famous ancient attractions are to be found in the Nile River Valley, from Luxor to Aswan, and not too far from the banks of the Nile.

8-Day Cruise Down the Nile – An Experience of a Lifetime

Nearly all of our 8-day Nile cruises feature traditional Dahabiya sail boats, although we do also offer some luxury 8 day Nile cruises which feature a modern 5-Star river cruiser with the same sort of amenities you would expect to find at any good 5-Star hotel, including therapy rooms, a beauty salon, spa and massage services, and etc. In short, if you book a cruise on one of these vessels, you really will be traveling in the lap of luxury

However, when it comes to our 8-day Nile cruises; most people tend to opt for one of our Dahabiya Nile River Cruises instead. One of the main reasons for this is because Dahabiya boats only have a handful of cabins, and usually only one or two suites. This provides a greater sense of exclusivity because you are sharing the boat with only a few people.

Many people also prefer these cruises because they are seen as being more environmentally friendly due to the fact that they rely on wind power. Of course, because of their vastly smaller size, they don’t have the sort of amenities you will find on the large conventional cruises, but you will certainly still be surrounded by luxury and comfort.

All Inclusive 8-Day Nile River Cruises

As with all our cruises, our Dahabiya and luxury 8-day Nile cruises are all-inclusive. In other words, they include full board and lodging on board whichever vessel features in your chosen Nile cruise package (beverages are not included). The price of your cruise also includes any and all entrance fees when you visit the attractions mentioned in your chosen itinerary. If you have any concerns regarding what is and what is not included in your cruise, please feel free to contact our customer service department via email, phone, or Live Chat.
