I had our guide book us an hour ride on the Nile at sunset so we could not only see the city but also see how it comes to life at night. At first, I thought we were sharing the boat as there were a lot of people there but found out that we had a private boat all to ourselves.

As our captain pulled us out of the dock, our guide noted several historic buildings and gave us some information regarding landmarks. It was incredible to see the sunset in the city of Cairo and then see how the city came alive at night. Well worth the cost of the boat rental.

The Felouka ride in front of the 4 Seasons Hotel Garden City is by all means the best spot to ride from and enjoy the view of this part of Cairo from the Nile be it during the day and even more beautiful after sun set. Actually watching the sun set while on the Felouka is also an added value and experience. Highly recommended.

Really nice trip with our knowledgeable guide Hazim and our courteous driver Wahid, who took us too and from the Nile from our hotel. The car had AC and they provided us some bottled water too.

No thrills, just a relaxing way to view Cairo from a different perspective!

We ended up on a motorboat instead of the traditional Felucca because it was too windy. I appreciate them keeping us safe. And we enjoyed the time on the Nile with our friends.

If it is very important to you to experience the traditional Felucca, make sure it's not too windy before they pick you up.

The felucca ride was wonderful as other comments have shown. In addition, I was heartened to see the prompt email and WhatsApp replies by the staff. They even went for the extra mile of agreeing to pick me up at my hotel located far away from the city (almost to the airport) at an attenuated price. Their love for their country and concern for their customers won my sincere gratitude and strong recommendation for all.

Taking a Felucca on the Nile is hands-down my favorite activity in Cairo. The wooden sailboats don't use motors and navigate by zig-zagging the width of the river. Getting on a felucca from Garden City just before sunset is a beautiful experience and the perfect way to wind down a day in the city. While living in Cairo, I made sure every visitor or guest had this experience during their visit. You can find feluccas on the river in Garden City or Maadi. No reservation is necessary; just bargain with the captains. Note that the price should be for the entire boat, not per person. The feluccas will leave anytime during the day, but not after sunset because they don't have lights.

i went to ride on the falucca they really ripped me off first wanting 800 pounds for 1 hour i told him no way im not a tourist i live here.i got him down to 350pounds which i had found out later was still double than i should have been charged my theiving cab driver mamed wootu was working against me because he too was planning to totally trie to cheat me.the falucca was to loud and gas smell was overpowering the fresh air.They sent a 14 yesr old boy to do the ride who didnt speak english so you would be aware of what you were seeing.loud music the whole experience caused me to have a migraine headache.and just began to annoy me.I went back 15 mins early cause i just wanted to get away from the noise and smell.just refuse to pay anymore than $8.00 us dollars.157.00 EGP.Everyone told me that this is the proper price.make sure its somewhat clean mine was old and disgusting .The material was wet and really really old .i hope everyone tries the ride paying a fair price and get a clean quiet .

There are many many people offering felucca rides. It's a lovely trip to see the sunset, but don't use Sayeed with his boat Sisi paradise. We were promised a felucca ride with mango juice or beer. We got a motorboat ride with a bottle of water. Very disappointing.

Experience was pleasant enough, but the boat was not a felucca (just an old motor boat) and the trip was less than one hour. Also very expensive for what it was - we rode one of these boats in Aswan for 5egp per person (rather than 313egp).

We have 2 days in Cairo, and I am not getting out of Egypt without a Felucca boat ride on the Nile. So on our second day, I looked for the Felucca Station and found one just across the Intercontinental Hotel. The boat owner offered me a motorized boat ride instead with many other passengers, I said a firm NO to him seeing there are 4 Felucca boats moored. The owner explained that the wind is not so good and we need a motorized boat to pull the Felucca to the center of the Nile before we can catch the wind, I said "Do it, I am getting on the sailboat not a motor boat. He charged me 600 EGP, I did not bargain so he was encouraged to let us on the Felucca. I saw the faces of those tourists leaving on a motorboat, they were all disappointed that they got a motorized boat ride instead of the silent running Felucca.

The boatman called himself Captain Robia , and he was an amiable 60 year old man who has a bad knee, and a smile on his face. I instantly liked him, and after being tugged to the middle of the Nile we caught wind, and started sailing the Nile for 1 hours. It's one of the most unforgettable pleasant experience in my life. Sailing the Felucca on the beautiful Nile river, surrounded by beautiful hotels along the banks. Silent running, just the wind on your face and the sound of the waves, and flap of the sail as it catches the wind. Captain Robia would sometimes let us steer the Felucca while he hassle with the ropes, it was an unforgettable experience.

No one should ever leave Cairo without going on a Felucca boat ride!
