Felucca Ride on the Nile River

Cairo Felucca Ride



Cruise the river Nile in a traditional Felucca and experience Cairo from the water, and enjoy relaxing experience, spending a day sailing down the same river Cleopatra did so many centuries ago. Watch the sunset over Egypt's capital and discover the amazing view of Cairo at night or enjoy the sunrise and the warm sun during the day. We can also arrange your birthday party while sailing across the Nile.




Luxor Felucca Ride

Going on a felucca ride is a must-do activity in Luxor, especially if you’re not arriving at Luxor on a Nile Cruise.

Feluccas are these traditional sailboats you’ll notice in huge numbers on the Nile, whether in Luxor, Cairo or Aswan. They have been used to sail the Nile since ancient times when pharaohs ruled this stretch of paradise that is Egypt today.
Sailing down the peaceful waters of the majestic Nile River, while watching the imposing Luxor Temple on the East Bank and the pink hills of the West Bank go by, is an inspiring and incredibly relaxing experience you’re not about to forget. Felucca touts can usually be found down at the “corniche”, in front of the Winter Palace hotel.
It is preferable to negotiate the duration, itinerary and price of your ride with your felucca “captain” prior to boarding. One of the most popular felucca rides in Luxor is the Banana Island excursion.

The felucca will sail north of Luxor to an Island covered with banana plantations; the boatman will berth the felucca off the island and take you on a short exploratory tour of the island where you’ll be offered a refreshing cup of traditional Egyptian tea and some of the sweetest, most delicious bananas you’ve ever tasted.

Aswan Felucca Ride


Take a relaxing ride on an Egyptian sailboat in Aswan and to enjoy the river breeze.
Start sailing the Nile by the felucca for about one Hour around Elephantine Island and to visit the Botanical Gardens, which is rich of its plants that were imported from all over the world In the year of 1899 Lord Kitchener used this Island to be a place where his campaign can rest, and call it the Lord's house. After his death, this Island belonged to the ministry of agriculture.
You can see also Agha Khan Mausoleum, situated on the top of a hill, commanding a magnificent view of Aswan area. On the West Bank, the desolate hillside is dotted with the Tombs of the Nobles which you should know its history.
