Tour Details

Sail down the Nile River, the longest river in the entire world. You'll glide down on a traditional wooden sailing boat, known as a felluca. Enjoy the gentle Egyptian breeze and visit Elephantine Island, where you'll see the temple of Khnum, the Island Museum, and the Nilometer.

The temple of Khnum was the dwelling place of Khnum. According to Egyptian mythology, he was the ram - headed god of the cataracts and controlled the waters of the Nile from caves beneath the island. The Island Museum offers fascinating exhibits full of artifacts from around the area as well as the mummified Ram of Khnum, a golden bust of Khnum, statues of Amenhotep III with goddesses, and many other notable pieces within the extensive collection. During your tour of Elephantine Island, you'll also visit the Nilometer, which was used to measure the Nile's clarity as well as to measure its water level during the annual flood season. These three historical places will make your Elephantine Island tour an informative and exciting experience. A private English - speaking Egyptologist will guide you on your Nile tour, so you are sure to get all of the fascinating historical details pertaining to each location.

On this tour, you'll feel like you've been taken out of your world and placed into a world of Pharoahs and deities. Explore and embrace the Egyptian culture as you sail the Nile on a felluca, just as ancient Egyptians did long ago.
