Haggling is absolutely not required.

Everything was perfect from our pick-up, tour guide, captain to drop off. We were provided drinks and snacks. We had the boat to ourselves which was an added bonus. I'd definitely do it again and again

Ok experience if you will not be crossing the Nile on other tours

My family and I took a felucca ride on the Nile river with Koshary for lunch. The van that picked us up was great, very clean and very comfortable. The felucca ride itself was pretty good (although, we found later in our trip that we frequently would ride feluccas to cross the Nile River in Luxor as part of larger tours that provided the same experience). Our tour guide (as compared to other tour guides we had during our trip) was average, not very knowledgeable and he did not engage us much during the ride to the Nile River or after leaving the Nile River. This was in stark contrast to just about every other tour guide we had in Giza, Luxor and Alexandria where we were engaged by the tour guides throughout the experience. If you will only be visiting Cairo and also not planning to attend a Nile River dinner cruise, then I would recommend a felucca ride on the Nile, but if you will be crossing the Nile River on other tours or taking a dinner cruise, this would be a hard pass.

Wonderful felucca tour

It was such a nice little trip. Mohsen The guide and Essam the driver picked me up at the hotel bought some nice lunch and drove me to the felucca. Catching the wind and eating a nice meal is a great combination. Just try it. Thanks to both guys from emo tours.

This was perfect! My guide was really knowledgeable and just a great person. He got me the most delicious sandwich for lunch, it was one of the best things I ate during my trip! I would definitely do this again, just the right amount of time on the Nile with gorgeous views of the city. Also, I would recommend going around sunset, it’s beautiful!

Beautiful relaxing trip by sunset. Smooth ride while enjoying the explanations given by our nice guide Mohamed Hamed. He took us in time from the hotel and brought us back. Trip booked on the same day very easy. Good value for money. Can only recommend.

Shocking!

Very unclear about lunch, gave the impression that it would be served on the boat but instead it was served in a narrow street cafe after what can be aptly described as a caricature of a Nile cruise. The boat sailed out turned twice and docked again. We weren't able to cross through bridges. Please avoid at all cost.

The felucca ride on the Nile was a very nice way to spend our first afternoon in Cairo. We were able to have our first experience on the Nile River and see some of the major sights downtown including the Cairo Tower. I would definitely recommend a felucca ride to everyone visiting Cairo and Egypt.
