Reviews for Nile felucca cruise for families


review 7 Jan 2019

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

We thoroughly enjoyed building a relationship with the people we met along the way.

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

Bring a sleeping bag, toilet paper, and snacks if you need more food. There was plenty on board, but if you are concerned at all, bring extra. Suncreen and a hat!

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

Most definitely! However, we did see that our trash was added to the big piles along the banks of the Nile. While this was the way it is done in that area of the world, it was sad that ours was dealt with that way. Eventually it would be in the Nile.

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

My family and I have only wonderful memories from our trip. Karim and his team took care of all five of us from my older parents to my 18 month old son. We were not sure what the trip would be like, and considered taking other boats down the Nile which may have had a cabin to sleep In. However, upon reaching the Nile and seeing the other boats we were all certain we had made the right choice. Camping on the boat was peaceful, Karim and his team were always looking out for my son and the day-trips to various places was enough for us. We got to go to some special places the larger boats canít get to. We were not interested in the crowds and token smiles from locals that we would have had with other boat trips. This trip was much more genuine. Our footprint was smaller as well and we could tell all the money went to the right people. The connections we made with the team as people we met along the way were authentic. If you are looking for a memorable trip that is responsible and respectful, this is the one. Cannot recommend it higher. Thanks for the memories!

Many thanks for your feedback .We are very glad you enjoyed your trip with the crew I would like to respond to your remark about environmental impact. When trash is piled up along the banks of the Nile , it is because they are picked up afterwards by special trash -boats and taken to waste disposal sites. In Egypt, unfortunatly, the recycling process is not well organized if at all yet and most of the waste is burnt or burried . We do feel very concerned about that issue and manage to avoid waste go to the Nile!
