Useful Informations About Privat Felucca Cruise

 

* What Is A Private Felucca Cruise?

-  The Nile River Is Famous As The World’s Longest River But Is Also Known For The History That Seems To Spring Up Along Its Egyptian Shores.If A Traveler Sailed From Cairo To Aswan, Affectively Traversing The Entire Length Of Modern Egypt,They Would Encounter More Than Five Thousand Years Of Temples , Monuments And Historical Sites.It Is This Fascinating History That Makes Egypt And Especially The Nile Valley Such A Popular Destination, And Many People Opt To Travel The Nile In Order ToExperience The Land In The Same Way As The Ancients. One Way To Ensure An Experience Similar To The Ancient Egyptians Is To Take A Cruise Or Sail In A Felucca, A Traditional Middle Eastern Boat. Today, Private Felucca Nile Cruises Are BecomingOne Of The Most Popular Methods Of Exploring The River And Its Fascinating Shores. But Be Warned, They Are Quite Expensive.


* Standard Routes And Itineraries

Private Felucca Nile Cruises Will Generally Follow The Same Paths And Routes As The Larger Cruise Ships – Meaning Points Of Departure At Luxor Or Aswan And Then Several Days Or Weeks Journeying Between The Two Points.

Even Though The Felucca Are Smaller, They Too Are Not Able To Make The Long Trip From Cairo And South To Luxor Or Beyond. This Is Due Primarily To The Locks And Cataracts That Make It Nearly Impossible For Larger Boats And Ships To Pass. This Does Not Mean, However, That A Visitor Is Going To Miss Out On Cairo As There Are Many Felucca Tours And Sailings In The Area Each Day.

Travelers Who Book Private Felucca Nile Cruises Will Be Able To Visit The Valley Of The Kings, And See The Tomb Of Tutankhamen Among Many Other Important Sites.

They Will Get A View Of The Temple At Philae, Visit Karnak Temple And May Also See The Fabulous Abu Simbel, Which Was Rescued From Oblivion During The Flooding Of Lake Nasser And The Construction Of The Aswan Dam.

 

* Keeping It Simple

One Of The Benefits In Choosing Private Felucca Nile Cruises Is The Small Size Of The Ship. Generally There Will Be From Six To Eight Passengers Aboard The Felucca Which Can Mean A Far More Attentive Experience As Well As A Bit More Time And Control Over Visits To Specific Sites.

For Example, Anyone On A Larger Nile Cruise Ship May Have To Visit Areas In Group Tours And Stick To Very Strict Schedules And Time Constraints. The Private Felucca Nile Cruises However Can Be A Great Deal More Flexible, And A Visitor Hoping For Some “Solo” Time At A Site Will Generally Be Able To Arrange For Such An Experience.
