Felucca Cruise on the Nile from Cairo

Select Date and Travellers
(Price varies by group size)

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your centrally located Cairo hotel for the short trip to the Nile River. Experience a classic Egyptian tradition that’s as ancient as the pyramids: watch the captain set the high, angled sail then steer the felucca boat into the Nile River, where a bustling crowd of bright boats jostles in the current.

    This is the perfect time to snap unobstructed photos of the city—try to spot the iconic landmarks of the Cairo skyline, from slender, historic minarets to the blinking Cairo Tower. Pass section of river where the city is hidden behind swaying palms and lush vegetation, then wave to the children that play along the water’s edge. Watch for the birds that thrive on the Nile riverbanks, and enjoy an easy going break from the city streets on a boat that’s powered by the wind. Finish the Nile River felucca cruise with return transfer to your Cairo accommodations.
