The people, the market, the painted houses, the oriental food, everything is just so beautiful in the village and so serene. It’s just a must visit destination.

I cannot recommend this enough!  It was absolutely lovely.  The colours, the culture, the warm people and the whole experience is only something a proper traveller will love.  I went at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic which may not be the best idea but the happiness and colours and just the moment I stepped off the boat was like another world.  You will be greeted by a lovely market or souk which had some good quality items and less of the tacky tourist souvenirs.  I bought spices and a nice painting.  Locals are friendly and many speak English.  It was a lot cleaner than I thought.  You can freely walk around, ride a camel, shop and have a bite to eat.  Don't just go to pose for social media photographs!  Yes, it makes a nice photograph but enjoy the experience.  There is a blue house at the top of the main market road where most people go.  The family allow you to come in and see the home.  It's made for the tourists but it was nice.  You can have a drink, dress up like the Nubian people, see the real life pet crocodiles and have henna done.  A lot of the guide books warn against the henna as they use a substance banned in most European countries that can cause severe reactions.  I was fine with it so was another girl doing it but be careful if you do decide to do it.  With the pandemic I should have been a bit more safer as the girl doing the henna was using the same tube to do it and not sanitising.  It was nicely done and cheap but let's hope I stay safe.  To get to the Nubian village, the journey takes around twenty five minutes by boat.  There were very few tourists and all had guides including us.  It wasn't cheap but to be honest we arranged it at the last minute and I am sure you can get there yourself cheaply.  The boat leaves and comes back to the same place near the Sofitel Old Cataract Hotel & Spa Aswan which is lovely for sun set drinks after.  The whole trip took us about two hours or slightly over.  The best place to go from is Aswan.  It will cost you a lot to go from Luxor.  Have a lot of small change if you want to buy things.  Most places as you can imagine won't take credit or debit cards there.

The place is very authentic and genuine. The kids enjoyed riding a camel and watching real crocodiles.Box braiding and tatto ( henna) were very appealing to my girl. The colours and ambience are breathtaking and not found anywhere else in the world!!

The city is beautiful and the people are very friendly and hospitable. The people receive guests in their homes at very reasonable tickets, in their houses you can enjoy the decorations and see some crocodiles. The village also features restaurants, cafes, very good spices shops, and souvenir boutiques.
