Group Traveller

I can’t say enough good things about the Merit Dahabiya Nile Cruise. It was a dream come true. The small group size allowed for personalized attention, and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of Egypt. The cabins were comfortable, and the nightly entertainment was a lot of fun. This cruise exceeded all my expectations!
