Bales Worldwide Celebrates it's 65th year by announcing first 600 Mile Dahabiyya Cruise in 15 years
After 15 years of part-closure, the Egyptian Government has announced that they are opening up the great Nile from Cairo to Aswan. This iconic 600-mile journey was one of Bales Worldwide's most popular holidays prior to closure and the company is thrilled to announce plans recommencing this luxury voyage again, aboard its exclusive Dahabiyya sailboats, from this October. Some of only a handful of boats allowed to make this timeless journey; Dahabiyyas are fully inclusive and cater for just 12 passengers. Each sailing is accompanied by an Egyptologist, making it the ultimate way to discover Egypt's rich cultural heritage whilst passing through the breathtaking views, dreamy vistas and riverside towns.
During the journey guests can explore the lesser known sites of Middle Egypt, such as the rock-cut tombs of Beni Hasan, Tell el-Amarna and Abydos; a must for those who are fascinated by the history of Egypt. However the greatest highlight of all may just be rediscovering the River Nile aboard one of Bales Worldwide's luxurious and traditional Dahabiyyas sailboats.
Bales Worldwide has been arranging luxury tours to Egypt for over 50 years and will start these unique and exciting cruises in the cooler months of autumn after the new 600 mile itineraries have been finalised and to celebrate the company's 65th Anniversary. Whilst departure dates and new operational elements of this tour are being completed, Bales Worldwide is offering those interested in the opportunity to pre-register interest online and be one of the first to receive finalised dates and prices for this unique experience.
