Felucca Boat Trip

A taste of paradise… Feluccas are the traditional sailboats you see in huge numbers on the Nile, whether in Luxor, Cairo or Aswan. They have been used to sail the Nile since ancient times, when Pharaohs ruled this stretch of paradise that is Egypt today.

Sailing down the peaceful waters of the majestic Nile, while watching the imposing Luxor temple on the East Bank and the pink hills of the West Bank go by, is an inspiring and incredibly relaxing experience you’re not about to forget. The felucca will sail north of Luxor to an Island covered with banana plantations. The experienced boatman will berth the felucca off the island and your guide will then take you on a short tour of the island where you’ll be offered a refreshing cup of traditional Egyptian tea and some of the sweetest, most delicious bananas you’ve ever tasted.

Please note: Occasionally actual days of operation are subject to change. If this is the case we will endeavour to book a day as close as possible to your original preferred day. Should this not be acceptable a full refund will be made.

  • Sail along the Nile in the famous Felucca boats like they did during the time of the Pharaohs!
  • Enjoy a cup of traditional Egyptian tea and fresh Bananas on Banana Island
