This really made a difference to my experience , felucaa rides were one of the best ways to see the river nile and gives a good view of the banks , aswan city and villages on the banks. It also makes you see the local Nubian folks and their life.

Captain Nageh is the best and most experienced felucca captain between Aswan and Luxor in my experience and this is confirmed by the enthusiastic comments from guests. His boat may not be the biggest or the most flashy on the Nile but it is the most memorable. You cannot help liking his style. DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY. KEEP SMILING and... More

Trips in feluccas - the traditional Nile sailing boats - are easy to arrange, with any number of touts waiting for your custom along the Aswan Corniche. Prices start at about E£50 per hour for the boat with 'captain' and perhaps one crew. You can also arrange overnight trips, one or two nights, with food provided. Night sailing is not... More

Fantastic relaxing trip on the nile by felucca sail boat. Captain Safi speaks excellent English has a good knowledge of local history and the bird species. He is a good cook and also has extras on board if required like beer and cigarettes. He took us to a village on the west bank where we had a camel ride to... More

it is the time to relax from temples and from any stress you have.. really you will like it. I advise you to take a felucca for at least 2 hours. you have also to negotiate about the price.

I will assure to you that you will spend the most relaxing and enjoyable times at your life having this trip. Enjoy the sceneries on the Nile sides, the huge rocks on the way, the calm water and the great kind hospitality of Aswan people. One of the best experiences you can have in Egypt.

Sailing down the Nile River via felucca (sailboat) may be one of the most wonderful experiences you will have in your life. The foliage along the river, the archeological sites on the bank, the breeze of the cool air makes the trip to Aswan well worth it. There are many boat captains available. Make sure you ask someone you trust... More
