Late afternoon, Luxor Local tour Leader will pick you up from your hotel (Reception Area), and transfer to the Nile side, where your Felucca is waiting for your journey. Board your Felucca Nile Sailing and relax on the soft cushions.
Experience the peace and tranquility of the Nile water that has been the lifeblood of Egypt since Pharaonic times. Enjoy a cool drink as you gently glide down the river.
Watch the real Egyptian life pass by and enjoy the fantastic scenes that have not changed in millennia, the children playing in the water, the camels and donkeys, the farmers going about their work in the same ways they have done for centuries, and admire the water buffalo and a wide variety of birds.
The felucca will sail to the Banana Island “an Island covered with banana plantations” the boat captain will berth the felucca off the island and take you on a short exploratory 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 have ever tasted.
Continue sailing and watch the sunsets slowly over Luxor West Bank, take in the scenes of life around you as you sail along the Nile, back to the Nile side and then transfer to your hotel in Luxor.
