Leisurely hour drifting on the Nile

This experience is very basic but we really enjoyed it for the slow pace and relaxation as a family. You are on the Nile in a local wooden sail boat called a felucca. Ours had a canopy with cushions to sit on and were given water bottles before we got onboard. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to our boat which in this case was across from the Four Seasons Hotel. You are not going to get far in an hour in a sailboat. We managed to get to the other side, down to the bridge and then back again. There's not too much to see but who cares! You are on a sailboat on the Nile just soaking everything up. Relax! Our guide was there if we had any questions. He occasionally would mention something of interest during our time but he was great as he did not talk just for the sake of it. Would definitely do it again.

Our guide was phenomenal! Esra came inside our hotel’s lobby to pick lead us to the air conditioned vehicle. She spoke great English and taught us a few words and phrases in Arabic. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Nile River, Cairo, Giza, and Egypt in general. The tour was relaxing, informative, and fun! The captain was very experienced and instructed us to switch our weight at various points during the ride so turn/navigate the vessel. It felt great to experience an eco-friendly ride on the I famous Nile. After the ride, she treated us to koshary (a local dish) with noodles and a tomato base. It was yummy. We would definitely book with this company again, and hopefully, we’d get Esra/Ezra (not sure which spelling is correct, sorry).
