Tour description provided by Viator

Relax and enjoy the amazing views of the Nile and Cairo from your felucca during this 1-hour cruise. Felucca's, the traditional sailboats of Egypt's Nile, offer a calm and quiet ride. Sit back and enjoy a relaxing felucca ride, as they are perfect for catching the breeze on a hot summer night, for brisker sails the rest of the year and watching the sunset.
You will be picked-up at at your hotel and transported to the marina for an impromptu party after work, a romantic evening, small social gathering, or for soothing the kiddies on the weekends. Sunset tours are especially relaxing since they may not do much sailing at all, but simply sit in a quiet cove where everyone can enjoy the lights on the banks and the river traffic.The felucca rarely has any form of engine and relies entirely on the breeze which builds during the day and usually subsides at night, and the Nile River's current. Egypt is blessed with a predominant southerly wind that pushes sailboats upriver, while allowing them to return on its current downstream.Your guide will return you to your hotel when the cruise is complete.
