Tour Plan

Your tour-guide will pick you up from your hotel or cruise ship.

1st stop – Motor-boat ride:
Enjoy a picturesque 45-minute motorboat trip along the Nile, passing the so-called First Cataracts – shallow lengths of the river where the water’s surface is broken by numerous small stone, boulders, rocky islets.

2nd stop – The Nubian Village:
Spend a time strolling among the wonderfully colorful Nubian houses, more African than Egyptian in style. This fabulous tour lets you meet and interact with a Nubian family and learn about their simple lifestyle, culture and traditions.
Flanked by the Nile, the Nubian villages in Aswan are some of Egypt’s oldest and most treasured ancient ruins. Village residents are known to be extremely friendly and hospitable, adhering to their distinct Nubian customs and traditions, and speaking their unique language – Nuba, for generations. The latter is sacred to the community and therefore not taught to outsiders. In the time of the Pharaohs, these villages – a source of gold, were of great importance.

Finally, your tour-guide will return you to your hotel or cruise ship.
