The long cruise program is a new re-birth and re-unification to the Nile valley.

A Cruise for over 600 miles and approximately 870 KM across Egypt from South to North and vice versa, as we are looking forward to improving and reviving the tourism market along the Nile valley through this program as a part of our social responsibility towards our beloved country.

This iconic tour combines the pyramids, sphinx, and Egyptian Museum in Cairo with the newly
available Long Nile Cruise which sails between Cairo and Aswan.
Since the lower parts of the Nile between Cairo and Abydos have been closed for almost 15 years, this cruise tour offers you an exciting opportunity to be one of the first to sail this route which is now officially re-opened.

Movenpick MS Darakum – route

Mévenpick MS Darakum is one of the very few boats operating this program with guaranteed sailing dates.

The duration range from 10 to 15 days depending on the direction of the trip and the chosen point of departure (Cairo, Aswan, or Luxor).
Departures are at least once a month from each of the three departure cities, minimizing the flow and volume.

Personal in direct contact with clients is the same for the whole stay inclusive of the driver, guide and boat staff. It is similar to buying a new house with all facilities used for the first time over a period of almost 2 weeks. This gives a great deal of privacy and less contact and the need to move from and to different locations and different accommodation.
