This is not a visit but an attraction. Prepared for tourists so not really that interesting. They take you in a longboat (where kids arrive singing in floating boards and they make you dance before you get beaded bracelets and necklaces displayed for sale) and then in a motorboat. After aproximately 30 minutes you arrive to a beach where you... More

I visited the Nubian village on my last day. As sad as I was to leave I had a few hours to kill and rented a boat and went. I was not disappointed. It was a nice boat ride. The Nubian people are very hospitable with very colorful houses and beautiful handiwork. I bought a bunch of stuff which I... More

Loved it there, very welcoming families, lots to see and explore. Very different experience. The boat trip was very beautiful and calming and the family we visited were very friendly. We had henna drawing done and had traditional drink just be careful of the water ask for it to be made with bottled water. The Nunian little girls are beautiful... More

The Nubian museum is one of Egypt's best. Highly recommended. It is open mornings and after 4 pm. It is across the street from Cataract Hotel.

We visited a Nubian village with our tour guide from Your Egypt Tours and it was very interesting. We were allowed in someone's home and were served drinks as we were educated about the village and it's people.

It was very nice to visit the home of a local Nubian family who were extremely warm and hospitable. The Nubians evidently have a practice of keeping mummified crocs in their homes. Unfortunately this family keeps live ones. They collect crocodile eggs from Lake Nasser which has a large number of crocodiles. These eggs then hatch and we saw cute... More
