The Nile is a beautiful and extremely long river. But the stretch of the river that winds through Cairo is very dirty. That being said, renting one of these boats for an hour "cruise" is a nice change of pace in such a crowded city. Other than riverfront hotels and casinos, there really is nothing extraordinary to see along the shore of the Nile in Cairo.
Sailboats and motorized boats can be hired across the street from the Nile Hilton. Negotiate the price. The boat owners will offer you $20 per hour for the sailboats and $30 per hour for the motorized boats, which will likely smell of gasoline. Walk away if they are stubborn on the price and they will more than likely take your offer.
