Is much more interesting than it looks. We took one to the botanical gardens, but to do over again - i would take on to the Cataract hotel. The topography around the hotel is amazing. Felucca ride give you a great sensation after being on the river boats. Very experienced sailors.

Felucca ride is amazing for nature lovers, Aswan has the best views of the river Nile so make sure you plan for this ride when you visit the city.

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.
