These "real world" tourist sites always get a bad review but would you want people coming through you home on a regular basis to see how you live. Take this site in context. Yes it is a tourist site but it is also a glimpse...More

The banana farm is fine, but they keep animals in horrendous conditions, as if they're an amateur zoo. I know it might be due to cultural differences, but it's not worth visiting this place to support their harmful practices. They had wolves pacing endlessly in...More

This place would be cool if it were only a working banana farm, but at the end you’ll come to several animals being kept in dirty, crowded cages. The animals are visibly stressed and are stuck in their own feces and trash. I couldn’t stomach...More

This was nothing more than a 20 minute boat ride on the Nile, a plate of bananas and 4 animals in cages. Don't bother with this, spend more time in the Luxor museum or one of the excellent temples.

Not worth the visit, better off spending you time on the boat relaxing on the Nile (which is worth it). Don't bother with pre-booking a trip or boat ride on the Nile. You can easily bargain with a local felucca boat driver for an hour...More

The boat ride was the best part of this trip. I didnt like the poor little crocodile being held in that prison, directly in the sunshine but other than that a day trip to do

Our boat ride stopped here for some reason. The island sports a variety of fruit trees, some caged animals, and a small cafe to enjoy tea or bananas. I would have rather the boat stayed on the water than spent time here.

There is nothing there just a couple of animals in a cage and lots of banana. You cannot visit the whole area, it is just a 2 minutes walk. Not worthy.
