Tour Description:

Zekrayaat or Memories, has the original features of a Nile boat from the 19th century. The beautiful open air upper deck with chairs and daybeds offers impressive panoramic views of the Nile, riverside villages and ancient sites. The charming cabins and suites below deck have an atmosphere of time gone by. At the front of the boat is the cosy salon with sofas, a large dining table and a small library. Dahabiya Zekrayaat is big enough to sail the Nile comfortably and small enough to drop anchor in less visited spots, picturesque and quiet, far away from the regularly crowded spots.
