Explore a Nubian community at the edge of the Nile River on a 3-hour river trip from Aswan to Gharb Soheil that includes hotel pickup and drop-off, traditional drinks in a local home, and a guided tour of the village. Travel by motorboat for a comfortable trip on the Nile, passing Elephantine Island, the First Cataract of the Nile, and ancient landmarks on the East and West Banks of the river. This small-group tour is limited to 15 participants for a personalized experience.
  • 3-hour Nile River boat trip to a Nubian village
  • Travel by motorboat and see the sights from the water
  • Meet a local family in a riverside village
  • Guided tour of the community and market
  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
Select the departure time that suits your schedule, and start the tour with pickup at your hotel or cruise ship in Aswan. Transfer to the Nile River jetty, where you’ll boat a motorboat for the 1-hour trip to Gharb Soheil. Find a comfortable seat on the cushioned deck, and spot some of the landmarks at the edge of the Nile River, from the Tombs of the Nobles to the Aswan Botanical Garden and agricultural islands dotted with cows, camels, and fishing shacks.
Shortly after passing the First Cataract of the Nile, you’ll reach Gharb Soheil, a Nubian village on the West Bank of the river. You’ll meet a local family to learn about their history, culture, and traditions, sharing a welcome glass of tea, Egyptian coffee, or karkade, a bright pink tea brewed from hibiscus blossoms. Following your time with the family, you’ll have time to visit the village with your guide, taking in the brightly painted houses, and a market full of fresh spices, handmade cotton scarves, and local produce.
After an hour at Gharb Soheil, begin the return trip to Aswan. This 3-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your Aswan hotel.
