Felucca Ride in Aswan or Luxor

As the sun nears the horizon board a traditional wooden Felucca for a private sunset Nile Cruise. As your boat unfurls a huge white sail and quietly tacks its way across the river, and the setting sun nears the horizon, you will be able to sit back and admire the world’s longest river as the whole sky turns a brilliant orange. A felucca ride can be arranged in either Aswan or Luxor.
