Spend seven nights on board the small and luxurious Dahabeya, taking you back in time as it graciously sails on the Nile from Luxor to Cairo. This unique cruiser replicates the sailing vessels used during the elegant days of the monarchy between the 1920s and 1940s, when aristocrats and sophisticated travellers sailed the Nile in style. After the cruise, spend two nights in Cairo exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx before visiting the fascinating Egyptian Museum.
