Cruising The Nile in Egypt Nile Egypt

Description

Journey with Birdview Travels to tour and cruise the famous River Nile. Start with a customary felucca ride on a private tour of the Nile River, central to Egypt's illustrious past and delight in an evening's entertainment as the Great Pyramid of Giza comes to life with lights and lasers under the night sky. With a small group and an expert guide hop in a comfortable vehicle for the 3-hour ride through desert terrain to the port city of Alexandria, Alexandria is one of the world's most impressive historical cities. Also you get to leave the shore behind as your captain steers the boat into the Nile’s current during Nile Dinner Cruise in Cairo with Belly Dancing: you’ll have roughly 2-hours on the water for dinner, shows, and sightseeing.  

Tour Schedule

Day 1

Arrive in the city. Settle into your hotel room and take some time to relax. No breakfast on arrival day. 

Day 2

Enjoy a customary felucca ride on a private tour of the Nile River, central to Egypt's illustrious past. Admire Cairo from its famous waterway in this enduringly popular mode of transport, idyllically passing a few hours while learning about the area's culture and history from your private guide. . Cruise along the majestic river, just as the Pharaohs did thousands of years ago, glimpsing historic sights on the banks. Learn more about the river's essential role in the growth and development of the Egyptian civilization.

Delight in an evening's entertainment as the Great Pyramid of Giza comes to life with lights and lasers under the night sky, take a trip out of the city center to the edge of the desert, where the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World lies intact after thousands of years, waiting to put on a fabulous spectacle of sight and sound. The 3 majestic pyramids are lit up in a multitude of colors and fashions, delivering a dramatic display against the jet-black night sky and the wind-swept desert.

Day 3

Meet up with your guide and hop in a comfortable vehicle for the 3-hour ride through desert terrain to the port city of Alexandria, founded by none other than Alexander the Great. Kick off your adventure at the catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, a sprawling underground Roman necropolis. Descend a spiral staircase to enter the 3-story labyrinth, a network of subterranean passages, tombs, and antechambers that were used as a burial ground for centuries. Admire sculpted pillars and statues, and step into a large banquet room, where relatives of the deceased hosted ceremonial memorial meals.

Day 4

You have most of the day to yourself but get ready by 6:30 pm for pickup at your  hotel, then travel to a Garden City dock to meet the river boat. Leave the shore behind as your captain steers the boat into the Nile’s current: you’ll have roughly 2-hours on the water for dinner, shows, and sightseeing. Listen to Arabic melodies as belly dancers perform a pre-dinner show, then fill your plate from an unlimited, open buffet. 

 Tanoura dancers, or dervishes, perform the second show of the evening, spinning continuously on stage to traditional Sufi music, an important part of the Egyptian religious tradition. After the show, climb onto the top deck of the ship for an open-air view of the passing shoreline, and enjoy a unique perspective on the bustling capital city.

Day 5

This day is set aside for you to rest, shop and visit places of your choice if there are.

Day 6

Departure! Hotel Pick up time is 3hours 5mins from flight departure time
