Agatha Christie

The Agatha Christie is one of only a few Dahabiyas, the river sailboats once common in Egypt in the days of the monarchy, which are still in operation. The Agatha Christie has three identical sisters: the Om Kolthoum, Princess Grace and Dalida, all of which sail gracefully between Luxor and Aswan. Cruise back in time on these elegant and exclusive sailboats and discover the Nile's romance in an intimate and privileged style, just as the former Egyptian elites and aristocrats once did.



Discover a land alive with mysteries and secrets along the banks of the Nile. During the 1920s-1940s, the vessel Agatha Christie was used to cruise the Nile by wealthy travellers and aristocrats. On board this boat you will be able to recreate their journey by gliding down the Nile from Luxor all the way to the breathtaking Philae Templein Aswan, making your way from temple to temple and luxuriating in the river’s breeze. While enjoying the comfort and luxury of a five star hotel you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in this fascinating country.

There are shaded areas on the upper deck for your comfort as well as a Jacuzzi and a barbeque area. Guests will enjoy a delicious breakfast and lunch served buffet style daily. In the evenings waiters will serve you a la carte items and beverages of your choice.

The twelve crew members will ensure that you have a pleasant and memorable trip by taking care of your every need and offering a flexible travel and sightseeing itinerary.

To add even further to your comfort, the Nile does not produce waves so there is no need to fear seasickness.

This thrilling Nile cruise seeks to combine adventure with luxury.

Unforgettable experiences await you as you discover the mysteries of the Nile along with Egypt’s incredible sites.
