Day 1:Monday - Esna

Esna, located some 33 miles south of Luxor, is where you will board your Dahabiya and meet the crew. Esna is best known as a thriving merchant town for the small ancient Temple of Khnum, which sits 9 meters below street level.

Your trip will begin with a brief walk to the temple and a stroll through streets filled with beautiful textiles and other exotic goods.

Night Stay on Dahabiya Bout

Day 2:Tuesday - El Kab & Edfu

El Kab, on the East bank of the Nile, was once the capital of Upper Egypt and is still home to the temple of Nekhbet, as well as a row of fascinating decorated tombs carved into the slope of the mountains. Upon docking, you will embark on a beautiful walk through a small fishing village to visit the necropolis.

In the afternoon, the boat will arrive at Edfu, home to the Greco-Roman temple dedicated to the god Horus. This is among the best preserved of all Egyptian temples.

Horse and carriage will take you to the temple through the busy city streets.

As dusk begins, there may be an opportunity to walk into the desert along a valley with boulders covered in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and stone-age inscriptions.

Solo travel can be daunting, but the Assouan Dahabiya Nile Cruise turned it into a magical adventure. From the moment I arrived, I was enveloped in a world of wonder and beauty.

The crew’s warmth and hospitality were exceptional. Our guide’s passion for Egypt’s history was infectious, and I left with a deep appreciation for this ancient civilization. Visiting temples like Karnak and Philae felt like stepping back in time.

The Dahabiya itself was a charming vessel, offering comfort and relaxation. Evenings spent stargazing on the deck were enchanting, and the food was a delightful mix of local flavors.

To any solo traveler considering this journey, don’t hesitate. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will leave you with cherished memories and a sense of awe for Egypt’s treasures.
