Dahabiya Nora: 4 Nights/5 Days Upriver Trip from Esna to Aswan

Discover the wonders of ancient Egypt through this magical Dahabiya Nora from Esna to Aswan for 4 Nights and 5 Days. Nora is a 19th-century Dahabiya replica that is as lovely as her name suggests — classically exquisite and inspired by the golden period of Nile exploration.

A large lounge and eating space may be found on the upper deck. The wooden sundeck is lit by antique lights and chandeliers, with elegantly embroidered cushions, deckchairs, a hammock, sofas, and loungers lining either side. On the shaded sundeck, it’s simple to unwind beneath her billowing white sails. As you sail down the Nile, you can’t help but notice the splendor. The boat has a big salon that is filled with natural light thanks to the large louvered windows. The saloon is divided into two sections, one with comfy chairs and sofas and the other with a dining table and a library filled with Egypt and Nile-related publications.

Four luxury cabins and two terrace suites, each with an en-suite bathroom and all the amenities, are available. Two magnificent apartments with private balconies viewing the Nile are located at the back of the Dahabiya. The next four cabins are equally as wonderful, with huge French windows framing breathtaking Nile views. The spacious ensuite bathrooms have antique tile flooring, a bathtub and shower, lots of towels, and Egyptian amenities.

4 luxurious cabins with stunning views from both inside and out

Cabins are individually and tastefully decorated, super-comfy, and provide a substantial amount of room for a pleasant stay while being romantically intimate. The four en-suite accommodations are spacious and comfortable. All are similarly lovely, with louvered French windows that provide wonderful views of the Nile. There are two twin beds or one king-sized bed in each cabin. In each, there’s also enough for an additional bed and a baby crib.
With exquisite antique furniture, Egyptian carpets, flowery wallpaper, and handcrafted tapestries, these cabins are classically Egyptian in every aspect.

2 Panoramic Suites with their own terraces and sleeping beauty

Two big suites are located at the end of the central hallway, each with French windows and private wide balconies with panoramic views of the river. Both feature antique four-post beds and are extremely charming. Every apartment is large enough to accommodate an extra bed if necessary.
There’s a lingering feeling of vintage charm and a homey environment. White walls, parquet flooring, antique furniture, vintage wallpapers, oil paintings, and handmade tapestries are used to keep the décor simple and stunning. Baths and showers are included in the ensuite bathrooms, which are lined with exquisite handmade Egyptian tiles. Old-fashioned Egyptian amenities, bathrobes, and hair dryers are given as a courtesy.

What People Say About Us

Thank you Egypt Fun Tours for a most memorable trip. I admit I didn’t do any of the planning (it was all done by my boyfriend) but as you can read in the reviews below Hani (the owner of Egypt Fun Tours) is superbly organized and accommodating with scheduling.

My boyfriend and I, and our dearest mutual friend, booked the 7Days-6Nights tour. In short time, we visited Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor sailing down the down the Nile, pit stopping to see key sites at these location – and so much more!!! We got to know the ancient and modern egypt in depth thanks to Hani’s impressive knowledge. He also enlightened us on the people and their beliefs and went as far as showing us what a typical life looks like. I cannot express the level of personalized service Hani offered us. He was flexible to adapt to our requirements and added sites to our schedule that was not part of the tour simply to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our experience in Egypt.

I went to Egypt practically blind-folded, not knowing what to expect, especially considering the time we had decided to go (December 2020 – we were the first group that Hani met with after months of having to put his tour agency on hold considering the pandemic) yet he managed to surpass all of our expectations. I felt so incredibly lucky for us to have stumbled on Hani. I would recommend Egypt Fun Tours to anyone and everyone. It was truly, HANDS DOWN, the best cultural experience I’ve ever had. You’ll be in the best of hands.

Nille cruise,Luxor and Aswan where amazing sites to see, specially when you have with you the best tour guide in Egypt .Hamada was absolutely fantastic, lots of information and some of them not spoken by others. This guy was not only a simple tour guide for us, he became a good friend also. Was a one in lifetime experience. Highly recommend Fun Tours. Really a great experience.

Hamada was incredible! So knowledgeable and kind. He had information about every item, street corner, and relic we looked at. Any questions we had, he had answers! He even made sure to give us tips while walking through the crowds so that’s we would feel more comfortable when being approached by vendors. Oh and the food?! He took us to the best places! Delicious food!! We tried Egyptian fried chicken, falafel for the first time, the best shawarma in the city (we love food). We even got to meet his beautiful wife and children and try some “French” Egyptian coffee in their home! Truly made friends for life!! We’ve promised to host him and the family when they travel to America for the first time! Such an incredible experience, and Hamada (and family) made it that much more memorable and amazing!

Excellent trip to historic sites with no one else around. We came to see Egypt while most places still had COVID19 fears. The staff at Egypt Fun Tours were professional, safe, and great to deal with. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I feel like I just got a a year of Egyptology in the last week and we had all the sites to ourselves due to COVID19. While people are shutting down and staying home you should feel safe to come explore with Egypt Fun Tours and have the place to yourself.
