Come and join us on an unforgettable Nile cruise.

So who’s the team behind Luxor Sail the Nile? We are Captain Mohammed Morsy from Luxor and Johanna Marius from Munich, a German/Egyptian dream team with a shared love of the Nile and of sailing. We are passionate about introducing our discerning guests to the beauty of Upper Egypt. We love making dreams come true with our dahabeya journeys, gliding along the Nile in supreme style and comfort on this elegant, traditionally designed ship.

Abundant experiences

Enjoy delicious, healthy food, service, comfort, beauty of the country and the people, unforgettable tombs and temples.

Off the beaten track

Aboard our elegant dahabiya ABUNDANCE, we leave the beaten track and the crowds of tourists behind as we follow in the footsteps of earlier explorers and adventurers.

We listen to you and what you want. We don’t try to sell you a fixed program.
When the wind is right, we set the sails.

Magic Places

Get the feeling of sailing down the longest river in the world, where the Egyptian pharaohs lived and built their temples.
There is not a cloud to be seen in the clear blue sky. The shores are lined with mango trees and date palms.
En route we stop at temples and tombs of the Pharaonic era, all at an easy-going, calm pace, so you can tune into the spirituality of the ancient monuments.

Luxury Life

Glide down the Nile in comfort and tranquillity on an elegant ship in traditional design, with all the modern comforts you could ask for.
Watch the spectacular sunsets as you sip a drink on your private balcony. Enjoy delicious European and Egyptian cuisine accompanied by quality wines.
Some say life doesn’t get much better!

Sustainable Travel

We believe in protecting the environment. We try to keep our footprint very small. We are eco-conscious, try to avoid waste, recycle, reduce the use of plastic wherever possible, compost biodegradable matter in our home port.
Our activity is beneficial to the communities we pass through, as we use local materials and employ local men and women.

Travel with Family and Friends

Enjoy slow travel with family and friends. Since our dahabiya can accommodate only 10 guests, you can have the entire boat to yourself to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday. We will do everything to make your experience unforgettable.
