Nile Dinner Cruise in Cairo with Belly Dancing and Hotel Transfer
From US$30.00
The Nile River flows through 11 countries, but it is most closely connected to Egypt, where it looms large in the history and culture of the region. See the world’s longest river during this entertaining cruise past the Cairo skyline. You’ll top off the tour with a hot dinner buffet and a traditional cultural performance with belly dancers and Sufi dervishes.
What to Expect
Get a front-row peek at Cairo’s spectacular skyline in an unforgettable cruise on one of the world’s most famous bodies of water.
After a front-door pickup from your Cairo hotel, board your riverboat at the dock and feel the rhythm of the water as the captain cruises into the Nile’s current. Get ready to take a ride on the river that has inspired countless poems, artwork, and songs throughout the centuries.
While Arabic music plays, belly dancers perform a predinner show, giving you a taste of traditional moves. Then, it’s time to hit the buffet: hot and cold dishes, including meats, salads, rice, and a tasty dessert spread.
During the next performance, whirling dervishes, known as Tanoura dancers, hit the stage to Sufi music, showcasing traditional Egyptian religious devotion. You’ll have time to head to the deck for a remarkable perspective on Egypt’s bustling capital city before returning to the shore.

Poor experience - but a nice night out for tour guides

Our tour guide and driver were on time. But we weren't sure why we needed a tour guide for this event. It was a 2 hour cruise and we were hoping to have a scenic, relatively romantic night out with each other. But instead, our...More

Very disappointing

There are two great things about this cruise - the sufi dervish show and the views from the top level (which is not where you get seated). Seated on the first level, you can’t see much while cruising. There is a lot of foreign (not...More

Nice and cheap. Very Loud music

Quiality price was quite good. Good food, good show, belly dance, the one of the skirt and man singing (last one boring). But very good. Complicated to find the place caz the location they sent wasnt accurate. MUSIC EXTREMELY LOUD. Little bit annoying

Boat ride.

We had a 4 nite 5 star cruise at River Nile. Boarding stations do not matter as it is more of a Boat Ride any where. Repetition of food , not too worthy shows in the curriculum. Would advice travelling to other places of interest...More
