Egypt Transport - Cruising the Nile

Egypt Transport - Cruising the Nile Last updated on Friday 16th April 2010

This is a popular tourist activity, and so the quality and price of organised cruises can vary.

At the top of the range, cruises can be booked through most of the major hotels; others can be obtained more cheaply through numerous Cairo travel agencies, and can cover full-day excursions through to a four-day sightseeing trip.

The most common means of transport up and down the Nile is by the ancient sailing boats known as feluccas. A felucca ride can be arranged for a few hours and is a peaceful way of seeing the Nile traffic and scenery. Sunset is the recommended time to do this.
