The pick up was on time . Our driver was safe and good fun . We booked last minute and they accommodated us . We were the only people on the boat . Seen the sights , waved to other music and had fun with the music and our guide was great at taking photos of us .

My partner, from Greece and I, Tony, from England. Had a wonderful experience sailing on the River Nile in a Felucca, traditional Egyptian sail boat. Two hours of relaxing bliss, away from Cairo's heavy trafic and honking horns! Transport to-from our accommodation, the lovely Cairo hotel was included in the 81 Euro for 2 person price. . Our driver and, the captain of the Felucca, looked after us splendidly, assisting us on and off the boat. The ride could have been a little longer and, it would have been nice if hot drinks had been provided, but overall, a great romantic experience. Would recommend for anyone visiting Cairo.

O “capitão” do barco era um senhor de idade simpático, aparentemente tinha experiência em manobrar a Felucca mas não falava praticamente nada de inglês. O passeio de Felucca teria sido muito mais interessante se fosse mais interativo e dinâmico. Com informações à cerca das Feluccas e do rio Nilo etc. Contudo foi agradável e foi possível tirar umas bonitas fotos. E o senhor no final de exigiu directamente Tip (o que é muito comum no egipto) mas foi um tanto rude a fazê-lo e acho que poderiam ser bem mais simpáticos a pedir dinheiro extra por uma atividade que não sai nada barata e que já estava paga.
