Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered

Select your desired cruise departure and menu option when you book. Then, after pickup from your central Cairo or Giza hotel, travel to the departure jetty on the Nile River to board your cruise boat.

Your vessel for the evening is the Nile Maxim, an elegant cruiser that echoes the style of the pharaonic barges of ancient Egypt. Step aboard and admire the views of Cairo’s waterfront sights as your boat cruises on the river. Snap photos of the city lights illuminated against the darkness and reflected in the lapping Nile waters.

As you relax and take in the views, enjoy the mix of pop and Middle Eastern music played by the live house band. Then, feast on a scrumptious set menu or à la carte dinner. Although the dishes may vary, expect to enjoy specialities such as seafood and Lebanese and Chinese delights. See the Itinerary for sample menus.

Following your meal, sit back and enjoy the sparkling live entertainment. Be entertained by live folklore music and watch a colorful belly dancing and ‘tanoura’ show, the latter with wide-skirted, whirling dervish-style dancers spinning hypnotically across the floor.

After the show, step back ashore and end your dinner cruise experience with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Good Cruise
, Sep 2019
Would have been nicer if we could have taken pictures with the entertainers after the show. Food was okay. Liquor was expensive. More explanation should have been given on time of dinner, time of entertainment, where exactly were we cruising to.
Poor compared to price paid

The program was OK while the food was not tasty.I paid 150$ for what worth 50$ which is unacceptable
Great Nile Cruise
, Jul 2019
My family and I attended this cruise. The ship was really nice and the atmosphere was perfect. They also had great entertainment. The only need for improvement is the food. We selected the buffet, but a salad bar was the only real choice. The rest of the meal was pre-selected. The driver was on time to pick us up, the transportation was great. I felt bad for the poor tour guide. He is made to stay on the cruise the entire time, I guess in case we need anything. That might be a bit much, just felt bad for him. But I definitely recommend and would go again.

The food was not good and even though I specified that I am deathly allergic to nuts and peanuts when I booked this tour they brought it out with almonds not once, but twice after I pointed out the fact after the first time. The entertainment was like sitting at a bad Las Vegas show. The Tanourah dance was really the best. The belly dancing was OK. The Nile was OK but my hotel is downtown and it was no different than when I walked to the highway or bridge and looked at it from there. My tour guide then demanded more money for his tip because what I gave him initially he raised his voice and said this was nothing. So I went to my hotel room, came back to the care with more money and even then he appeared to not be satisfied even though. He didn't really show me anything. The driver picked me up and he stayed on the cruise - that was it. Very bizarre. Don't recommend.

In general its good, but not great, it should be better, when i was in the cruise, they put me in a table in the middle not directly beside the window even there were too many empty tables beside the window, and when i asked them, they told me that the tables beside the window are reserved, but when i reserve this trip via viator i did not now that we can reserve a specific table!! if i knew that, i would reserve a table on the window !!! is this the fault of viator or of the organizer or the cruise responsible ???

What a fun evening. The guide and driver were very friendly and careful with us. We took my friend's twelve-year-old son, and he had a blast. The food was really good, with enough choices to satisfy a child/picky eater. The dancing was spectacular, and the dancers were very friendly. We really enjoyed seeing Cairo at night from the river.

Our tour guide waited at our hotel for us even though we were running late. As for the cruise experience it was ok. If you like loud music and decent food then I would recommend.

If you are first timer to Cairo this tour is a must. The tour leader picked me up at my hotel, delivered me to the ship and then was there to pick me up when I finished and brought me to my hotel. Soo easy. The dinner on the ship was delicious and the service was fantastic. The show was ok. Nothing too fabulous. The belly dancer was gorgeous. The singers / male dancers, well.....they couldn't compete. Excellent value for the price paid. Above all, its a boat ride on the Nile in Egypt. Holy cow! Amazing.

Cruise was fantastic. Had lots of Egyptian decorations and food was good. The belly dancer and Whirling Dervish were very entertaining. Best way to cruise the Nile!
