A nostalgic luxury cruise on the Nile aboard a traditional-style dahabiya sailing boat

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, private 'dahabiyas', beautifully crafted wooden sailing boats with between 4 and 10 cabins, were used by wealthy Egyptians to cruise on the Nile in exclusive comfort; they were hired for days or weeks at a time and were popular with those who wished to travel at a leisurely pace on the timeless river, enjoying the gentle breeze and the freedom to moor besides small islands and riverside villages. A new generation of dahabiyas, built in the early years of the 21st century, allows the modern traveller to recreate this wonderful mostalgic experience in luxury and style. The Movenpick Feddya, launched in 2012, is simply the best and most luxurious dahabiya on the Nile.


There are currently no set departures on the Feddya, but if you are interested in taking a cruise on this magnificent vessel, please let us know the dates you would like and we will get back to you with a proposed day-to-day itinerary and price.

As well as the traditional visitor sites that are included on a typical 7 night cruise between Luxor and Aswan, we can schedule stops at lesser known destinations such as el-Hegz Island, el-Kab (the ancient city of Nekheb), Ai Ramady Village, Silsilah and el-Sheikh Fadl Island.


Prices from £4000 to around £7000 per person, according to the time of year.  The price we quote you at the time of booking is guaranteed.
