From your vantage point on the felucca you will see Agha Khan Mausoleum, situated on the top of a hill, commanding a magnificent view of Aswan area. On the West Bank the desolate hillside is dotted with the Tombs of the Nobles which your qualified Egyptologist guide will give a brief history of as you sail by.

Your felucca ride to Kitchener Island takes around 20 minutes, depending on wind speed and Nile currents, and on arrival your guide will accompany you to Aswan Botanic Gardens. Visit the small botanical museum before strolling through the tranquil gardens which are home to many exotic species of plants and trees imported from all around the world. The Aswan Botanic Gardens are a quiet and peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday Egyptian life, and young couples and families from Aswan often spend their day enjoying the island.

Returning to your felucca you will return to Aswan's East Bank, riding the currents and winds on a relaxing sail with the expertise and knowledge of your local felucca captain!

I really enjoyed this tour, it was great to be in a felucca on the Nile with nothing but the sound of the wind. The Nile really is most beautiful here and worth spending time sailing around to see the desert and city from the water. The gardens are really pretty and its a nice break away from the big number of people everywhere else in Upper Egypt.

Nice and relaxing, an oasis within a busy city. A good variety of plants and a great setting and our guide was really friendly. The felucca ride was the highlight though with the contrasting landscape in the background.
