Can you take a boat on the Nile?

Most Nile cruises start in Luxor and visit the popular sites of Esna, Edfu, and Kom Ombo before disembarking in Aswan. Other itineraries fly directly to Aswan and work their way north down the Nile to the same sights. Most cruises will last at least four nights.

Is Nile river big enough for cruise boats?

There is a small ship cruise, a dahabiya or a felucca. You’ll usually spend your time on just one type of boat, though many small ship cruises offer the option to spend a day, or even a night on board a felucca.
