The Basics

A boat ride along the Nile is a quintessential Egypt experience and there are plenty of ways to get on the water. Admire Cairo's illuminated skyline on an evening dinner cruise, marvel at the ancient wonders of Luxor's East Bank and West Bank on a sunset cruise, or set sail aboard a traditional felucca for Elephantine Island or Soheil Island from Aswan.

Multi-day cruises also run up and down the Nile between Luxor and Aswan, affording spectacular views and stopping at sights such as Aswan High Dam and the temples of Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor, and Karnak.

1-Hour Private Felucca Cruise on the Nile River with traditional food
This is the only true way to experience the Nile River up close and personal. No motor, just you, the wind, and the water. Simply amazing! Our driver was simply amazing and our boat captain was well trained. We had an amazing time!

1-Hour Private Felucca Cruise on the Nile River with traditional food
Guide was very funny and also raced us. So far the best guide I’ve had in Egypt. Racing up and down the hill was more fun than roller coasters.

Nile Fel-Felucca trip

Book online Sailing Boat on the Nile River with Fel-Felucca
The Fel-Felucca trip in Nile was a very nice, relaxing and romantic experience. Because of Ramadan our trip moved later in the evening so we didn’t have the chance to enjoy the sunset as planned, but the night time was nice too. If you stay a few nights in Cairo is a nice way to spend your evening. The food however was very basic for the price of the trip.

2-Hour Felucca Ride on the River Nile from Cairo - Sunset or Sunrise Options
I booked it last minute on the day, Christine Gale Q from Viator was most helpful in finding something suitable for my family. Local tour group called me after waiting around for a bit but it was well worth it. The boat driver (controller) was amazing also took some wonderful scenic pics of my family. Hotel Pick Up and Drop off is a huge time saver once you get that sorted. River Nile cruise 8.5 out of 10 I am being realistic. Well worth it. Would be nice to have snacks on the boat but luckily we took our own.

2-Hour Nile River Night Dinner Cruise From Cairo
Friendly staff and great driver that picked us up from our hotel- The boat was unbelievable, the food was fantastic, the show was entertaining! Overall a great experience- The only downside was the wait staff on the cruise that we dealt with were inconsiderate. I had to ask multiple times for several different items (menu, drinks, change for the bill.) He kept walking past and avoiding eye contact- Other than that slight negative, highly recommend this experience!

Wildlife of the Nile

The vast riverbanks of the Nile River provide a habitat to a huge variety of wildlife. Most notorious is the Nile crocodile, which can reach lengths of up to 20 feet (6 meters), but more welcome sightings include African tigerfish, Vundu catfish, turtles, and tortoises. In more remote rural areas, hippopotamuses, wildebeests, rhinoceros, and mongoose flock to the Nile to drink, while the Nile Delta in the north is home to a sizable population of water birds, including little gulls and whiskered terns.
