“Nice tour with friendly people.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We went on a day tour to visit the people and their homes. the village is nice and the nubian people dont hassle tourists. the tour was good, except i was disappointed that the crocs were in tanks and some didnt have water in the tanks. The boat ride to the village was really nice too.

“very charming and unique experience”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We took a felucca boat over to Elephantine Island to see the Nubian village. The local people were very friendly and charming. We were invited in for tea in one of the homes. While they try and sell you henna or handmade wares they were quite unique, we bought a few. Overall a very unique experience.

“Back to school”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The visit is a learning curve of the life of Nubians. We especially enjoyed the school visit where we had a lesson in Nubian alphabet and numbers. Plus we all wrote our names in nubian

“A pleasant afternoon boat ride. Nothing special.”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

A very nice gentle motor boat trip takes you to the Nubian Village about 45 minutes from Aswan. The trip itself was very pleasant, but the Nubian village is really another selling opportunity, but with less hassle than Cairo. You can also take a camel ride here as well as have the opportunity to hold a small crocodile.

The boat trip back was made even more pleasant when we picked up about 6 young Nubian women who sang and danced the whole way back to the dock in Aswan.
