Sitting in the hotel lobby 15 minutes before the event, then the tour guide came in with a card to pick up the car. The arranged car was very comfortable. In addition, the tour guide knew English and had chat and introduction throughout the whole process. I spent a very comfortable evening promotion on the Nile River. !

Excellent, relaxing, peaceful ride in Felucca on Nile

My partner, from Greece and I, Tony, from England. Had a wonderful experience sailing on the River Nile in a Felucca, traditional Egyptian sail boat. Two hours of relaxing bliss, away from Cairo's heavy trafic and honking horns! Transport to-from our accommodation, the lovely Cairo hotel was included in the 81 Euro for 2 person price. . Our driver and, the captain of the Felucca, looked after us splendidly, assisting us on and off the boat. The ride could have been a little longer and, it would have been nice if hot drinks had been provided, but overall, a great romantic experience. Would recommend for anyone visiting Cairo.

Very relaxing and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this to anyone. I was very happy to sail the Nile the old fashioned way while watching the sunset rather than being on one of the tacky party boats.
