My fiancé and I booked the Glory of Nubia for a one night trip. It was a very scenic and relaxing ride, and one of the most memorable parts of our vacation in Egypt. Cruising the Nile at sunset on a sailboat with just the two of us was unforgettable - moreso because I also got down on one knee... More

My friends and I visited Aswan last March and we decided to take a one-night cruise on the Glory of Nubia. The boat is still in good condition. In fact it was renovated this year and it's still one of the best looking boats on the Nile. Oucha, the Captain, and his assistants were very helpful and extremely friendly during... More

I was on the boat with my family and it was excellent. It is something very different from being on a big cruise ship. This is a more environmentally friendly way to do it and also a much more authentic experience. Abdo, the boat manager organized everything very well. The boat crew was excellent, knew their job well and very... More

Our sailing day on the Glory of Nubia was an adventure that left a memorable mark in our hearts. Everything on that felucca was more than perfect. The oriental atmosphere, crew, WONDERFUL food, songs, dance etc etc etc... The Glory of Nubia is an adventure to be recommended, ABSOLUTELY. It was one of the best tours we had in Egypt.... More

Wow what a felucca . It is very difficult to add more comments about this Felucca you really have to experience it yourself. From the luxury, cold drinks on arrival. The cup of tea in the fine china with cake. Dinner on the roof top. The staff with happy smiling faces. We only did 2 day trips I could only... More

I did many felucca trips on the Glory of Nubia. It's one of the best feluccas I've ever seen in Upper Egypt. Extremely spacious, fabulous Nubian food including water and soft drinks, comfortable mattresses and winter blankets, professional crew, Australian-style camping toilet, solar energy system and more importantly a unique cozy mood in the evening with the brass lanterns and...

While I was in Aswan in March, I had the great good fortune to spend some time touring the Nile aboard the very glorious Glory of Nubia. Travelling the Nile right down on the river, vs up on a cruise boat, you get a whole different perspective of the river. It really is a liquid highway, and a vibrant community.... More

Glory of Nubia was an amazing way to spend a day on the Nile. Laying on plush pillows while sailing around the Nile was surreal. Getting on the boat was sort of like stepping into an Arabian nights setting. Definitely a major step up from the typical felucca tours that we saw. We spent the day on the felucca, rode... More
