Stunning sailing on the Nile, escaping the crowds of the cities... The team sailing the boat and the cook on the boat too were just fantastic and made us feel very relaxed and looked after. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We are particularly careful to ensure that there are no negative ecological impacts.We use no fossil energy, the feluccas travel exclusively on wind power.As a consequence the banks of the Nile and its wildlife undergo no degradation caused by us in contrast to that inflicted by the larger cruise boats which produce serious damage and erosion due to the waves they create. Moreover the animal life and especially the birds are not frightened or disturbed by the noise of the engines and our guest can see them very close.
We undertake the organization of cleaning up not only after ourselves but of less scrupulous tourists or local people in the areas where we spend the night During the cruise, all the rubbish is kept and put in a proper place.
We create the opportunity to exchange ideas and mutual understanding about ecological behavioursi in a country where Ecology is not the first concern.

People

Our aim is to propose and promote individual vacations that are environmentally and socially respectful. We endeavour to provide our clients the opportunity to have a clear and precise insight into the characteristics of local life whilst minimizing the negative impact generally associated with mass tourism. We are particularly careful to ensure a fair distribution of the money generated by our activity so that the main beneficiaries are egyptian families.
The felucca owned by our company remains entirely at the disposition of the family of our egyptian associates at Luxor. Cruises departing from Aswan are aboard another felucca hired for the purpose so as not to interrupt the regular work schedule of the boat based at Luxor. All the people who organize the cruises and accompany visitors (captain, mousse, cook) are egyptian .All purchases relative to the vacations are made locally (food, transport, equipment)
Since the “Arab Spring” tourism has diminished substantially and is struggling to restart. With our initiative we wish to support local communities and to bring them a mean to restore confidence in their own future without relying too much on the only egyptian government.
