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

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

I think everyone should go and see for themselves. It doesn't take too much time of your day and it is a nice boat ride in the Nile.
