I traveled with friends to Aswan last year. We used Nile Voyage Services 2 times, one for a felucca ride on the Nile and the other for a day trip to Abu Simbel. Everything was well organized, was a pleasure to deal with them, very good customer services, excellent guides and clear cars. Thank you Nile Voyage Tours!


Alaa our guide from Nile Voyage Tours is very kind, honest and cheerful person, We had a pleasant felucca ride in Aswan with him with a visit to Kitchener’s island. It was relaxing and amazing. I strongly recommend!


Our Guide Doaa was very helpful, She took us on an epic sunset sailing boat which was very relaxing. The surrounding views are panoramic and picturesque. A photographers delight, and a nature lovers haven. Great experience!


This was by far an awesome way to enjoy the Nile river! You sail for 1 hour on a local felucca, stopping at botanical gardens along the way, watching the natural beauty of Aswan on and around the botanical garden and the tomb of the agha khan. You will love the view, its exhilarating, all of us loved the cool breeze.


It was amazing trip with our guide Doaa, She is very nice girl. We have fun with my kids and my husband. it was relaxing. It is an extremely smooth ride. Thanks Nile Voyage Egypt!


As an optional tour Nile Voyage Egypt Tours arranged for us a sunset felucca ride on the Nile at Aswan. Lovely tour and perfect day!


We booked a felucca boat ride in Aswan with Nile Voyage Tours, I think, this is the right way to experience the Nile. We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset on the Nile after visiting botanical gardens with our perfect guide Omar. I recommend this trip, beautiful scenery and good experience!!
