The people are delightful, and the farmers we visited so gracious and hospitable! We toured a farm and marvelled at how cool and comfortable their home was without the need for air conditioning (all due to construction materials and architecture), and saw how they farmed the land in the traditional way. We were allowed to feed the young camels alfalfa,... More

Had a felucca sailboat ride on the Nile to get to the Nubian Village. Wandered around the village before going into one of the colourful houses. The host was only too happy to show us his home (which was very modest) and to sit & talk with us and share a drink.

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...
