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

Sail the Nile! Anywhere on the Nile is wonderful. Our favorite is Aswan. It’s a wonderful place to just kick back and enjoy the Nile at its most scenic. A must in Aswan is a felucca trip…or any small boat trip—on the Nile any time of the day or night, but especially at sunset. A trip to the gardens on... More

We took a 3 night felucca trip down the Nile from Aswan to Edfu. It was one of the highlights of our holiday and if you have the time I would highly reccommend it. Travelling by sail you have a real opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Nile and the variety of birds is amazing. The 2 man crew... More

The Felucca Sail was included as part of our cruise on the Nile. The boat is extremely stable and the captain very skilled as he sailed the boat along the river and around the islands. The views were lovely and the sail was very quiet and peaceful. The number of birds on this part of the Nile is amazing and... More
