What You Can Expect

1-Hour Felucca Boat Ride on the Nile River from Cairo

Sailing trip on the Nile in Aswan

Meet your qualified Egyptologist guide at your hotel at your selected departure time. Then, hop inside your private, climate-controlled vehicle and travel to the river pier where your pretty felucca is waiting at the dock.

Step aboard the traditional wooden boat and settle into one of the comfortable seats, with your guide alongside you. Then, as the white sail flutters in the breeze, set off for your cruise along the calm Nile waters.

Sit back and drink in the panoramic views over Cairo’s bridges, riverbanks and towers, and listen as your guide points out landmarks and shares stories about the Egyptian capital's incredible history. Savor the gentle breezes and warm sunshine as you sail, and bask in the wonderful peace that comes from being out on the water — a stark contrast to the commotion of Cairo's streets and bazaars.

Capture photos of the sights and passing river vessels, stay refreshed with complimentary bottled water, and feel yourself relax into the soft rhythm of the river's lapping waters.

When the time comes, drift gently back to the dock and enjoy a return transfer to your hotel, where your experience ends.

Loved it! We did the trip after a long flight from SA and found it relaxing and calming. Just the right thing to do to get us going again for the rest of the Cairo sights. And the guide was on time, friendly and efficient. Next time, were doing a 2-hour trip because it was over way to soon.
