Reviews for Nile felucca cruise in Egypt


review 29 Mar 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Waking up as the sun rose over the milky waters of the Nile was pretty incredible. Walking on the sandy banks and washing as the fishermen and farmers arrived for their work was truly magical.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring some mosquito repellent and a sheet or sleeping bag liner. The blankets provider are warm but you'd want something between you and them. Wake up for sunrise. Be prepared for plans to change slightly as wind and currents are your masters.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

You only need to watch the huge cruisers pass you by to realise how lucky you are to be sailing with no engine, no other tourists and local sailors/guides. Food is fresh and bought at markets as you travel. The money is going straight to the staff.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The felucca part of our Egypt trip was a definite highlight. I could have camped on the Nile for many more days, aimlessly drifting and relaxing.
