You want decadence, luxury, no crowds, an experience like the Orient Express the ultimate cruising experience on the Nile. Get away from huge floating hotels and experience an intimate holiday on the Nile. This is the cruise Agatha Christie did. There are three types of boats dahabiyya (also spelt dahabiya and dahabeya) which hold 12 people in 6 double cabins all en-suite. Sandal which holds 8 in 4 double cabins with 2 bathrooms and the felucca for the backpacker at heart, wild camping and adventure.
I personally did a cruise on my 50th birthday on a sandal, there were four of us. The food was wonderful, the crew attentive but inconspicuous and the sites seem to open just for me. Contact us for more details or visit our website Sail the Nile
