What is a Dahabiya Nile Cruise ?

Dahabiya Nile Cruise is a 2 masted sailing ship that sails the Nile with wind power, it should have no engines except for a generator that makes electricity, dahabeya in Arabic has many different ways of writing, you can write it Dahabeya or Dahabiya or Dahabeeya or Dahabiyaa or… and the word Dahab itself means Gold, it means the Golden Boat! our Dahabeya Ships are very comfort , fully furnished cabins with private bathroom, Egyptian cotton linen  Shower , large window to watch the Nile during the sailing . The history of this kind of ship goes back to the Pharaonic times: there are inscriptions of very similar boats in the tombs of ancient Egyptian Kings and Nobles. The Famous Egyptian King Farouk used to have a dahabeya in the Nile and his follower President Sadat had one too. Our guests especially the repeater who came to Egypt before will enjoy the dahabeya very much as he will see and experience the Nile from different points of view. We stop during the sailing very close to the temples even we arrange special catered candlelight dinner in front of one of the temples, we stop at the villages, we visit the farmers, camel and animal markets even buy our fresh vegetable from the farmers while stopping there.
