The Dahabiya requires a gentle breeze to allow it to sail and generally this breeze travels in a southerly direction, Luxor to Aswan. When, commonly, there is no northerly breeze, a tugboat is brought in to pull the Dahabiya for stretches of the journey. If you would like to sail for the entire time, then we would advise you to take the Luxor to Aswan route.
