What To Expect

Begin with pickup at your Cairo hotel, then travel to a Garden City dock to meet the riverboat. Leave the shore behind as your captain steers the boat into the Nile’s current.

Listen to Arabic melodies as belly dancers perform a pre-dinner show, then fill your plate from an unlimited, open buffet. Choose from hot and cold menu items that include rice, pasta, chicken, fish, beef, and salads, then choose sweet treats from a spread of desserts and fresh fruit.

Tanoura dancers, or dervishes, perform the second show of the evening, spinning continuously on stage to traditional Sufi music, an important part of the Egyptian religious tradition. After the show, climb onto the top deck of the ship for an open-air view of the passing shoreline, and enjoy a unique perspective on the bustling capital city. At the end of the cruise, return to shore for the trip back to your hotel, where this tour concludes.

This was an amazing experience. Our tour guide, Engy was exceptional, always nearby if we needed any assistance and well informed. A total pleasure to be with. Our drivers ability to wind his way successfully through an extremely hectic rushed Cairo to the Cruise boat and back was excellent. The highlight of the evening was the Tannoura - whirling dervish dancer - seeing is believing it was remarkable and highly recommended along with a beautiful Belly Dancer. Highly recommended!

Amazing night!
Ann_B, Mar 2024
We all loved this dinner cruise. There were 3 adults and a 3 year old I'm our group and it was amazing! My child's highlight if the whole trip to Egypt was the belly dancer! Food was delicious, entertainment was on point, and cruising down the Nile just added that extra wow! Would highly recommend this tour!
Beautiful boat and views
Devin_C, Mar 2024
Beautiful boat and great food. I did struggle with the high smell of fuel on the first level. Would do it again though.
An evening to remember
Vicki_D, Jan 2024
Wonderful cruise. Entertainment was exceptional. Food was tasty and plentiful. A relaxing and enjoyable evening.
Not worth this dinner cruise
Reaz_C, Jan 2024
Terrible food. They will way overcharge for drinks once they notice you are tourists. In addition nothing about site sewing. It’s all about sleazy show and pushing to sell pictures with entertainers. I don’t recommend anyone. It’s a waste of money and time!!
Good Cruise, Even Better Representative
Acacia_D, Dec 2023
The star of the show for us was our representative Fero who provided us with exceptional services during our hotel transfer to the cruise ☺️ We wish we came across Fero earlier in our trip to Egypt as he would have made an incredible tour guide. Fero spoke clear English and was able to answer questions and provide information easily. For English speakers, I would highly recommend requesting Fero when booking - I wish someone had of recommended Fero to us. As visitors from New Zealand 🇳🇿 we were just excited to have the experience of dining on the Nile River. Good entertainment.
One lovely evening

We enjoyed the amazing salad, but tbh the main meal served was well presented, delicious and the veg al dente. The sevice was super and very friendly and the entertainment was fascinating.
Not good
juliechand, Dec 2023
Not so organised. Food was not good. No reserved tables. Anyone is just sitting anywhere. Tour guide was ok and not ok…

Our guide alaa is most helpful and amazing guy 💕🌷 we are thankful for everything he done for us 💕🌷 احلى علاء وأحلى شادي 🌸🌸👍🏼🌸🌸
Not worth it.
Nedal_K, Dec 2023
The food was tasteless . The dress code was a joke. No one enforce it. The whole cruise was mediocre. Thee name should not state Belly Dancing. It is deceiving. The belly dancing was at the last 10 minutes of the cruise. The whole experience with Emo Tours is ridiculous and outrageous. Not worth a penny
MD_M, Dec 2023
The guide Dania is very friendly, she is very simple and cooperative. She always took care of us during the trip.
That was a nice time...

Night on the Nile
Stephanie_V, Oct 2023
We had an amazing night with Nour. He was very attentive to our needs and assisted us to the best spots possible to see the entertainment and the best views. Nour went above and beyond to take beautiful memorable pictures.
Excellent Tour
Sakshi_J, Oct 2023
Haitham is the best guide ever. Shared so much great information about Cairo and Nile. The whole experience was very smooth.
Spectacular Event
David_D, Jul 2023
The event was very enjoyable. The transportation and guide were SUPERB! The cruise with both traditional Tanoura dancing and Belly Dancing were very entertaining and with done with style and class. The service and food were also top-notch. This was truly one of the highlights of a vacation that included Italy, Greece and Malta. Egypt beat them all. Surprisingly, the highlight of the event was the ride back to the hotel. Our guide Mahmood Hero, who also played bongos on the Cruise boat provided us a concert of HIS OWN Egyptian Reggae Music. I could have listened to him all night. Truly spectacular. The greatest joys come when you least expect them.
Fun Nile evening cruise
John_R, Jul 2023
Fun evening on the Nile. Food was plentiful and very good. Fish was excellent. Fun experience that we enjoyed. I would recommend r
The food was not that...
ESTHER_L, Jun 2023
The food was not that great. The drinks are not included. There is smoking allowed indoors so be prepared for that. Everyone wants a tip or wants to sell you something even if they don’t service you. I wanted a nice dinner on the Nile—- not to be harassed. The tour guide was good.
