Cities to Visit: Esna -Aswan
Sightseeing: Esna -Aswan
Tour Description:

The Orient is based on the design of an original Dahabiya from the late 18th and early 19th century and is built in colonial style. The heart of this traditional two-masted sailing boat is the half-shaded sundeck. It’s the perfect place to lie in a wooden deck chair and lazily watch the landscape gliding by. Down below is a nice living area, a salon, four cabins and one suite. The cosy salon has a small library with books about the Nile and Egypt. With its comfortable sofas, it’s the perfect setting to end the day. Swap stories, share experiences, read a book or play a game of backgammon while enjoying a Turkish coffee or a glass of Alexandrian wine.
