Late afternoon, Your Luxor Local tour guide will pick you up from your hotel (Lobby), and transfer to the Nile side, where your Egyptian traditional Felucca is waiting for you journey. Board your Felucca and relax on the soft cushions. Experience the peace and tranquility of the Nile water that has been the lifeblood of Egypt since Pharaonic times.
Enjoy the Felucca gently glide down the river, watch the real Egyptian life pass by and enjoy the fantastic scenes that have not changed in millennia, the children playing in the water, the camels and donkeys, the farmers going about their work in the same ways they have done for centuries, and admire the water buffalo and a wide variety of birds.
The felucca will sail to the Banana Island “an Island covered with banana plantations” the boat captain will berth the felucca off the island and then take your short exploratory tour of the island, where you’ll be offered a refreshing cup of traditional Egyptian tea and some of the sweetest, most delicious bananas you have ever tasted. Return sailing and watch the sun sets slowly over Luxor West Bank, take in the scenes of life around you as you sail along the Nile, back to the Nile side and then transfer to your hotel in Luxor.
