Sailing boats are not cruise ships and if you are unfamiliar with the joys of sailing then you need to be aware of the pros and cons. When you are relying on wind power and the current then a rigidly timed schedule is not possible. So with flights and further connections to get and temples that must be visited how do we manage? Well we offer 2 options; sail only or sail and tug.
With sail only you are guaranteed an agreed number of nights aboard. We make sure that if you have not reached your final destination at the end of that time you are picked up by our driver in an air conditioned mini bus and taken by road.
With sail and tug, when the wind fails then we start up the engine on the tug and continue our journey. It is your choice; please let us know at time of booking. We find offering this choice enables different groups to enjoy the joys of cruising the Nile by sail boat. Bird watchers may prefer to drift slowly past mud banks observing the many birds of Egypt , whilst amateur Egyptologists don’t want to miss a temple. Which ever you choose you get to your destination on time.
