nice trip but service need to be improved

the Felucca ride is a nice break from Cairo's renowned crowded and noisy streets. The sunset on the Nile always offer beautiful colors and inspiring sceneries. However, the organisation was not very efficient. The pick up from the hotel was perfectly in time but arrived at the dock we had to wait 1 hour before sailing, losing the best moment of the sunset. The ride lasted less than two hours.

I would of rated this more but I really feel that for the duration light snacks and drinks would of made it perfect. It was so peaceful away from all the noise from the city chaos traffic. We went with our 6 & 9 year old they enjoyed it. Beautiful to see the sunset

Tour includes transportation to the pier from our hotel which was helpful. It was a very romantic evening but I wish we had brought snacks and drinks on the boat as the ride is a bit long. All in all a nice way to relax and wrap up our trip to Cairo.

Punctual pick-up. Views from Nile are spectacular at sunset. Two hour is too long when there is no wind, as they are not going far by rowing with the stick not a paddle. Anchored for a long time. Was relaxing but cold day so we returned early. BYOB or tea although not sure if allowed.
