It was ok, but pretty much just another tourist trap. You can get there by boat directly or by boat and then a camel ride. Along the main road, there are many shops which pretty much sell the same types of stuff.

The "houses" are basically cafés where you can take a picture of little crocodile with band around it's mouth so it does not bite, and then put it back in the tiny cage. The "village" is like any other Egyptian city's outskirts with markets selling the same tourist kitch as everywhere else. Yeah, the boat ride is nice, but you... More

Our tour began with a visit to a family home and a description of the lifestyle and beliefs. Didn't seem as stilted and choreographed as some of these usually seem to be. Once you leave the areas where the people live you enter the typical market area. Some nice sights, especially of the piles of colorful spices. Lunch in the... More

The village itself is a little touristy, but getting there is a blast. It's easy to commission a small motor boat from the main strip in Aswan and the trip along the water and past the first cataract makes for a beautiful afternoon. We ended up getting a bit shortchanged on the price by our tour operator, but I expect... More

As part of my Nile cruise, a trip was arranged to visit a Nubian village by motorboat. The villege itself was very littered with rubbish and the market stalls selling their native wares were very overpriced. Our guide looked embarassed at having to take us round them. However the people themselves were very friendly and charming and welcomed us into... More
