Felucca Nile cruises are usually smaller than the majority of the Cruise up and down this historic river. Feluccas themselves can typically accommodate between 6 and 10 people, which makes them perfect for a small group who are traveling together.
A felucca ride is one of the most relaxing experiences you can escape to after feeling, hearing and seeing the exhilarating nature of the Egyptian capital. While comfortably seated on cushioned benches, take time to observe the felucca captain maneuvering his sail
A Felucca is not quite as comfortable as a luxury cruise ship but nothing can beat sailing in a quiet righ that was designed thousands of years ago, Each evening the boats are pulled up onto the shore, as it is dangerous to cruise in the dark without lights. There are no cabins, just a single deck covered with thick mattresses and shaded by an awning, which travelers relax and stretch out on by day and sleep under at night. Bringing along a sleeping bag is a good idea, for the pillows and blankets provided on the boat are not regularly washed, if at all.
Make sure you like and trust your felucca captain before you hop on board, it will really make a difference to your experience.
