2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2010

We had high hopes for this tour, but ended with a disappointing trip. The feluccas weren't sailing, because of the lack of wind, and our tour of the sights was limited. We did not see much of the ancient village, and the Aswan Museum on the island is not worth visiting. We had a "row" from the dock to the island and a "float" back to the shore...nothing to write home about. Being on the Nile was fun, but this could have been a much better trip.
