Meet a driver at your hotel in Aswan, then transfer to a Nile River boat launch to begin the tour. Enjoy views of the Nile River, Soheil Island, and the Aswan dam as you navigate along the Nile, and be sure to bring a camera, as traveling by boat offers some of the best, unobstructed views of the landscape. Head to shore on the West Bank, where a Nubian village overlooks the river.
Take a guided tour of the village, with time to meet a Nubian family to hear stories about their lifestyles, cultures, and traditions. The Nubian people have a deep history in Egypt, which they ruled during the 8th-century BCE, and have a fascinating culture that remains distinct even today. After visiting the village, make the return boat trip to Aswan, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
