i sail by Felouka on the Nile twice with my all family in Cairo and once in Luxor with friends . Its amazing experience. Must do it in Egypt for sure. You can see all Cairo around by the Nile. Many others Felouka with many people also in the Nile. We had captain. We had our music. we dance. we brought our food from home and make river picnic. Its not so expencive not cost much. So romantic trip. ! hour is enough or 2. Day time or sun set time is magnificent.

Ahmed was our tour guide for the felouka ride, we choose a sunset ride. Ahmed met us on time at the hotel and he was an excellent guide for the evening - I really appreciate the ease where the private tours will pick you up at your hotel (although the boats were so close to where we were staying, the Intercontinental).

Our felouka captain was also named Ahmed and he was experienced in navigating the boat for a peaceful, serene sunset ride. The tour guide Ahmed kept us entertained with interesting personal and historical stories about Egypt.

What I liked: the peaceful nature, getting away from the hustle and bustle of Cairo, nice views of the city on the river.

What was so/so: our hotel actually had the same view of the Nile river where the boat went, and on the 2 hour ride you don't really go outside of a 1/2 mile radius on the water (trapped in by bridges that the sail obviously couldn't go under), so it's not really about seeing Cairo's buildings or historical monuments - just for relaxation and being on the river. Since we literally had the same view from our hotel, it wasn't that amazing, but if you don't have a Nile view it is awesome to soak up the sights.

Overall I would highly recommend this company and if you're looking for a relaxing way to spend 2 hours, take the sunset cruise! Oh, you might want to bring your own snacks (they provide drinks). I would recommend this over the dinner cruise, the dinner cruise seems really cheesy.
