Plan your Egypt holidays with a private Nile cruise

by Oriental Cruises Oriental Tours Egypt

Egypt always has a special identity when it comes to tourism and exploration. The country is a blend of ancient historical remains and modern wonders. The cities in Egypt still exhibit their ancient culture and they have successfully preserved their antiquity.  There is lot of see and experience and if you are planning for a short tour, there is a good chance that you would end up extending your flights back home.

Perhaps the most special part of an Egyptian holiday is to visit the popular pyramids and enjoying some colourful nights at one of the many oases that offer nothing but pure entertainment.  But if there is something else about Egypt that you cannot afford to miss, it is a visit to the most popular place, the legendary Nile Valley.  If you are in Egypt even for 3 days, then do not hesitate to book for a ride across the beautiful Nile river. A private Nile cruise is a heavenly experience and something that would definitely make you think about returning here every year.

A private Nile cruise sounds like an expensive affair but if you look around you can easily find several affordable options. Tourism is a big business for the locals of the Nile Valley and they have expertly developed a great market for the tourists who often spend extended holidays in and around the beautiful Nile Valley.  For a private Nile cruise, you can easily try and find a suitable small boat or a private yacht that can be rented for a week or two. There are small boats used by fishermen and private parties that are often rented by tourists.

If you need a private Nile cruise, there are several options to consider. It is more advisable if you make some inquiry in advance. Search online for Egypt tourism guides and agents. You can place a call to discuss your terms. The rates are often a bit high for holiday seasons but still there are many tourism companies that offer Nile cruise packages at attractive rates. You can also think about booking a cruise with a 5 star houseboat that can offer you a deluxe suite with all possible facilities.

Apart from motorboats and luxury yachts, tourists often take long rides on Feluccas, the small traditional boats made of sails. Although they are noiseless and beautiful, they can be uncomfortable for long trips. So, if you are planning a 4 to 5 days cruise, then it is better to book a small motorboat with a crew of 2 to 3 members. You can even share your private Nile cruise with one or two families. This is a great way to share your expense if you are planning a long cruise.
