The visit to the Nubian Village is certainly interesting although something inside you will keep on whispering that it is not genuine, rather a lot is staged for the regular assault tourists. The boat ride on the river is very nice however and you will enjoy the fresh air as you sip a drink in the only, rather colourful, bar... More

It is certainly interesting but how much is genuine and how much is staged for the regular coachloads of tourists you can only guess at.

The village is on the side of a hill by the Nile. They house we went in had a couple of crocodiles as "pets" in a pen, they served us tea and we walked through the village - open air market. Not really worth the time - the ride on the Felluca was nice though.
