Overview

Felucca are one of the traditional sailboats of Egypt Nile, all people love to join a relaxing felucca ride and enjoy the breeze on a hot summer night or sunny days in the winter. Escape far away from the city crowds in Cairo and relax for 2 hours on a quiet felucca (traditional Egyptian sail boat) on the Nile River near your hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed my Fellouca ride on the Nile. Spent about an hour on the boat after visiting the Egyptian Museum. We boarded the boat in front of the Four Seasons on the Nile. The weather and wind was perfect and it was was so peaceful
