    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.

    Our tour guide was Lovely and so was our captain. Didn’t know that it was a sail boat (no Motor) which made it even better. Suggest you carry your own snacks, drinks and music to make it even better. Nice views of Nile river and Cairo skyline

    I think that this is something that everyone should do if they are visiting Egypt! Why not take a ride on the Nile river :) I took my ride at night with a bunch of friends. Evening time is lovely to see the city, as well as all of the other Felucca boats light up on the river.

    Upon arriving in Cairo, the first thing we did was a Felucca ride on the Nile. Our tour guide, Omar, reached out to me prior to our boat ride to inform me of the pick up time from our hotel. He and the driver were prompt and very polite. They picked us up in an air conditioned
