Nubian Village Day Tour Itinerary

Your journey begins as you are picked up by your friendly guide from your hotel lobby or the dock of your luxurious Nile cruise. After brief introductions, you board a comfortable vehicle and embark on your cultural expedition with a sense of eager anticipation and excitement to experience something truly unique.

As you arrive at the glistening banks of the River Nile, a traditional wooden motorboat awaits to ferry you across the mighty waters in utmost luxury and comfort. The gentle rhythm of the boat and cool breeze allows you to relax and take in the picturesque scenery of lush greenery and vibrant village life unfolding along the banks as you sail towards your destination.

Nestled harmoniously on the fertile Western shores is the charming Nubian village, located strategically near the magnificent man-made Aswan Dam and the scenic Soheil Island. This placement has ensured accessibility while retaining the authentic ambiance and cultural integrity the community is renowned for over centuries.

As you cruise past, the rocky outcrops and gushing waters of the scenic First Cataract dancing gracefully amid nature's beauty takes your breath away. You gaze in wonder at the picture-postcard vistas unfolding around you, instantly captivated by the natural splendor coupled with a touch of adventure.

With warmth comparable to the golden Egyptian sun, a gracious Nubian family welcomes you into their abode. Seeking to form a heartfelt connection, they happily take you under their wing and introduce you to their generous spirit and way of life through first-hand experiences and engaging conversations.

Your cultural expedition comes to an end all too soon, leaving you with memories to cherish for life. Laden with new insights and universal lessons of generosity, humility and living in harmony, you bid farewell to your gracious hosts hoping to cross paths again. As your boat navigates back with the sunset's glow, you reflect on this special experience that peeled layers beyond superficial sightseeing. The deep community bonding, glimpse of history through generations and reaffirmation of our shared dreams have enriched you beyond any tour. You have gained more than observers - true friends who will welcome you back as family in this oasis of cultural significance on the Nile.

Perfect trip Toda nuestra estancia en Egipto fue increíble gracias a Travel Joy. Se aseguraron de que mi mamá y yo pasáramos los mejores 12 días recorriendo Cairo, Aswan, Luxor y Hurghada. Kero y Emily estuvieron siempre pendientes de que todo saliera bien y que la coordinación del viaje fuera excelente! Además nos ayudaron con todas las reservas y con cada favor que les pedimos durante nuestra estadía. No podemos estar más felices de haber tenido a Mito y a Mohamed como nuestros guías. Hablan excelente español y contestaron todas nuestras preguntas acerca de los templos. Sin duda regresaremos a Egipto y volveremos a escoger a Travel Joy como nuestro host. Nos vamos muy contentas y sintiéndonos como si hubiéramos estado con amigos estos días.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.

Egypt 18 days itinerary !!! We were in Cairo for 20 days and Travel Joy made an 18-day itinerary for us visiting Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, Hurghada and Alexandria. Our entire tour was private, with guides in English and Spanish (they speak the perfect language). The manager, the guides, the drivers were very friendly, professionals and attentive to us at all times. They made our trip an unforgettable experience. We didn't have any problems, they were very punctual and professional. If you are thinking about traveling to Egypt Travel Joy I recommend that you do it with them, the private tours are totally worth it, the guides explain calmly, you can ask questions, take photos patiently, and enjoy each of the temples and places wonderful things that Egypt has! Thanks Travel Joy for making our trip unique! Don’t hesitate to contact them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Away from the crowds, you will step into the charming world of the Nubian people and gain profound insights through meaningful interactions with a welcoming local family. Over the course of this enriching expedition, marvel at stunning scenery along the Nile and uncover a heritage that withstood the test of time.

Departing in Style
Your guided tour commences with a stress-free pickup from your Aswan hotel or Nile cruise.

Along the way, learn about important sights in Aswan and what to expect for the rest of your culturally immersive day. Reach the lush banks energized and fully briefed for the adventures ahead!

A traditional wooden motorboat awaits to ferry you towards an intriguing destination. Settle comfortably as the sound of lapping waters soothe your senses. Gaze at vibrant villages scattered along the banks, observing daily life unfold beside fertile fields. Watching the idyllic scenery glide by induces a sense of serenity. Little do you know the boat will also pass landmarks like the dramatic First Cataract before docking at your destination.

Welcome to the Nubian Abode
Tucked away on the verdant Western shore is this picturesque hamlet where generations have peacefully co-existed with nature. Strategically located near attractions like the Aswan Dam and Soheil Island, the village charms visitors with its rustic spirit.

Participating in daily routines provides authentic insights beyond books, forging fond memories of bountiful generosity, humor and fellowship among tranquil date palms.

Unearthing a Rich Heritage
Music has always played an integral role among the Nubian people to reinforce cultural bonds. Listen to their vibrant tunes played on traditional fretless string instruments like the kuduro and tom tom. Marvel at dynamic dances that have withstood evolutions. Experience how pottery, woodwork and mats intricately weave vibrancy, utility and folklore into artefacts. Gain a nuanced understanding of their well-preserved cultural identity, adapting splendidly to modern times without compromising rich roots.

Savoring the Natural Beauty
As your eclectic experience in the village comes to an end, it’s time for a scenic boat ride back to civilization. Float past the idyllic First Cataract formed by granite boulders resisting the powerful Nile currents. Gaze in awe at the dramatic swirls of whitewater crashing between jagged rocks. Watch pelicans and kingfishers soar freely over the gushing water while your captain shares more history and folklores associated with this natural wonder. The picturesque locale uplifts spirits before docking in Aswan, invigorated by rural magic.

Return with Treasured Memories
