Lovely place to walk around and the food in the restaurant we visited was excellent. We went twice once on a trip organised by a travel agent but the second time went with a nubian man from a neighbouring village and the second visit was much more pleasurable

You take a 30 min boat ride to the island. Then, get on a camel and ride about 15-20 min to the villiage. That was very cool and kids loved it. The visit to the villiage was OK - small market, nice visit at a home cafe.

Had a lovely boat trip here from Aswan , colourful village with Nubian inhabitants. We visited a Nubian family in their home hated the crocodiles trapped in confined spaces just for tourist photos seemed very cruel . Didn't really see the village just one house, the boat trip was the best part as the wildlife was wonderful

Sailed from Aswan for a short day trip. Very relaxing day out. Bought some scarves and spices. Felt very sorry for those trapped growing crocodiles breed in tiny cages which are on display just for tourists' entertainment. There are tons of visitors daily and the crocodiles are constantly poked to get a reaction. If you do visit, leave them alone.... More

The Nubian village is very interesting and was well planned to show a good variety for the time. Our highlight was holding a baby crocodile at the 'Place of Rest' whilst enjoying their warm hospitality in the cool sheltered open house.

Get to the other side of the Aswan town, closer to the desert and you are in Nubian Village. We had a local guide and a local Nubian friend who took us for a walk around the village and we had an authentic Nubian dinner. 100% worth it.

We arrived by camel. That was quite an experience in itself. The camel ride took us along the shores of the Nile river. This village has opened itself to visitors. Several of the residents have opened up their traditional style Nubian homes for you to visit. We were invited in and offered homemade local bread (delicious), a local made cheece... More

You need to go to the Nubian village for shore. I did not like the Nile crocodile, but the artcraft, the buildings. A must in Aswan
