Eyaru Dahabiya: 7 nights, 8 days overnight cruise from Luxor to Aswan

Discover the wonders of ancient Egypt in Luxor and Aswan in luxury and style through the Eyaru Dahabiya for 7 Nights and 8 Days. The term “Eyaru” is an old heliographic name that represents the ancient Egyptians’ concept of heaven, the afterlife for ancient Egyptians who reside in the Eyaru fields.

When Eyaru was in the design process, it was inspired by the notion of Eyaru. Everything on Eyaru was inspired by and tailored to the “Eyaru” idea. It was created to demonstrate and fully enjoy the real Egyptian culture of the region. The Egyptian spirit is central to Eyaru. You will be immersed in Egyptian culture and will notice the Egyptian soul in everything around you. Everything on Eyaru is handcrafted, right down to the plates and carpets.

Every chamber has a different design inspired by the notion of Eyaru during the period of the Ancient Egyptians, so you’ll enjoy the Egyptian atmosphere in each one. You will be treated to the most exquisite hospitality while discovering new locations in Egypt via innovative routes. You will visit several spectacular sights along the Nile River between Luxor and Aswan, including El Hagz Island, Bashaw Village, and Gebel El-Silsila, which are exclusive to Dahabiyas and not available on major cruises.

You will not only be able to tour the wonderful sights between Luxor and Aswan, but you will also be able to experience true local life in each city and tour their marketplace. In Bashaw Village, you will stay at the home of a local and interact with him and his family. You will spend a day in the life of an Egyptian and witness how they live.

The Egyptian vibe will also pervade your meals on Eyaru. During your stay, all of your meals will be traditional Egyptian cuisine. You may also buy fresh ingredients for your supper that night or fish to cook on the sundeck on your travels to the local shops! You will get the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the Egyptian lifestyle. There is also the option of attending live cooking sessions for your supper and learning local dishes to attempt when you return home.

Due to Eyaru’s most prominent feature, its pergola, Eyaru may be enjoyed all year. A section of the sundeck is glassed off by the pergola. So there’s no need to stay indoors during the winter months and lose out on the Nile’s beautiful beauty. As a result, Eyaru is one of the few Dahabiyas that sail between Luxor and Aswan.

Eyaru has no motors and is towed by a tugboat from afar, so you won’t hear or feel anything throughout your journey. For the first time on the Nile, the Eyaru crew sleeps on board the tugboat at night, giving you full solitude.

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.
