An amazing pharaonic boat trip!
Cruising along the Nile with this beautiful wooden sailing boat makes you feel like a Pharaoh – or at least you think that it must have been this way in ancient times. The scenery is fantastic, from the wonderful blue Nile to the beautiful vegetation on the Nile banks and the looming desert dunes just behind the palm trees.
We were allowed to create our own itinerary travelling on our own pace. We had the opportunity and flexibility to stop at wonderful and exotic places, where big ships are not able to and to have our own “off the beaten track” trip. With our own private tour guide we did not only receive interesting information on ancient Egypt and history but also many insights on modern life in Egypt.
The service on board was excellent – the crew makes everything to make you feel comfortable, always discrete and friendly. Food on board was delicious – we also had the opportunity to try Egyptian food – our friendly Chef was happy to introduce us typical Egyptian delicacies.
Travelling on the royal house boat is an extraordinary experience – it was exactly what we needed to escape from our stressful everyday life.
I would love to return for another romantic Nile cruise!
