Boating in Cairo

One of the most pleasant things to do on a warm day is to go out on a felucca, Egypt’s ancient broad-sail boat, with a supply of beer and a small picnic, just as sunset approaches. This is the best spot for hiring one because it’s near a wider spot in the river.

Subject to haggling, a boat and captain should cost between LE70 and LE100 per hour; your captain will appreciate additional baksheesh.
