Read an Excerpt

A trip to Egypt would be remiss without at least an hour’s meander on the Nile on an age-old felucca. Even if you are planning to go to Luxor or Aswan where feluccas are an essential ingredient of any visit, it’s still mesmerizing to have a night-time sail while in Cairo when the city is at its most beautiful.
