It's a normal little village from nubian people that live thank the tourists and make many different typical things to sell. But interesting))

The Nubian village is a bit touristy. Yep, I got to handle a small crocodile which was THE highlight of the trip. Otherwise it's just a tourist trap, more shops but these ones trying to hawk "genuine" Nubian artefacts. Sigh! The best part is the trip up the Nile and over the cataract on the way to visit it.

Had a chance to visit a Nubian village. We visited a home and the local school. At the school we got the chance to learn both Arabic and Nubian numbers. The highlight was my girls playing soccer with the village kids.

This wasy favourite excursion.Mainly due to the boat ride through the most stunning parts of the nile and actually getting to swim in it. Wasn't really a fan of how they keep 4 crocs in a tiny cage,suppose that was the only tiny let down

There is nothing better than a slow motor-boat/felucca ride south of Aswan to the Nubian village and especially if done as the sun is setting. Many wonderful, locally made souvenirs to bring back and very friendly local people to meet. There's also one of the few 'safe' Nile beaches just before you get there so you can actually make it...

If you have some spare time and if it's not too hot nice too see how they keep crocodiles in their houses as pets :)

great to arrive there just before sunset as the lights go on in the small houses and the whole world twinkles. Not much to do once you're there- can't really say we enjoy looking at crocs in people's houses- but there are a few vendors with the usual glasswork, scarves etc. Go by felucca- great experience!

The Nubian village portion of this trip is short and somewhat interesting. The shops are similar to others we would see in the city. The only difference is the more intimate setting of a functioning village. This may seem somewhat staged for visitors but there is no way you could visit a real village! The trip to the village was... More
