1-Hour Felucca Boat Ride on the Nile River from Cairo

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your qualified Egyptologist guide at your hotel at your selected departure time. Then, hop inside your private, climate-controlled vehicle and travel to the river pier where your pretty felucca is waiting at the dock.

    Step aboard the traditional wooden boat and settle into one of the comfortable seats, with your guide alongside you. Then, as the white sail flutters in the breeze, set off for your cruise along the calm Nile waters.

    Sit back and drink in the panoramic views over Cairo’s bridges, riverbanks and towers, and listen as your guide points out landmarks and shares stories about the Egyptian capital's incredible history. Savor the gentle breezes and warm sunshine as you sail, and bask in the wonderful peace that comes from being out on the water — a stark contrast to the commotion of Cairo's streets and bazaars.

    Capture photos of the sights and passing river vessels, stay refreshed with complimentary bottled water, and feel yourself relax into the soft rhythm of the river's lapping waters.

    When the time comes, drift gently back to the dock and enjoy a return transfer to your hotel, where your experience ends.

    this was included ( 10GBP ) in our Luxor trip through Ramashka tours a wonderful experience by powered felucca, in evening you can do the same but by sail at sunset which would be even better.
