A Taste of Nubia

Aswan Day Tour

  • Pick up from your Aswan hotel.


  • Transfer to the banks of the Nile where you will board a traditional Egyptian sail boat, a felucca, to sail around the islands and first cataract of the River Nile.


  • Stopping at Kitchener's Island, you will visit the Botanical Gardens with its many types of subtropical, exotic and rare plants.  


  • Return to the felucca and continue sailing to Elephantine Island where you will visit a Nubian Village.  Walk through the colourful streets, see how the Nubians live and maybe even purchase some handicrafts or souvenirs.
