A fine visit to a private home, tea and descriptions of life in the village. Camel-rides are offered for those interested. The crocodiles in the house were a nice twist!

The descendants of the Ancients are the Nubian. They are talented crafts people still today and have many fine things to offer like beautiful bead work and baskets. The Nile is lovely here and the spices and henna plenty. Anyone who visit the Village is sure to come away with a wealth of knowledge from the est people in Egypt... More

A really great way to understand how these people's lives have not changed much through the centuries. We were able to be a guest in one of these homes and enjoyed the friendliness of our hosts. Tea was served and after a brief tour of the premises we were given the pleasure/shock of holding one of their pet crocodiles! What... More

The Nubian farm was great, saw crocodiles, goats, and camels - and were able to feed the camels. Also had a look at a Nubian house - and tried the local 'coffee' (not to my taste!)

At the end my guide did ask... More

Easy access by boat. Friendly folks. Hard to pull my wife away from the spice market. Lots of good stuff here albeit a little pricy. The home visit was very nice and we felt welcomed there. Not much to see but the crocodile holding was a nice surprise. Good cultural experience.
