Captain Ziggy and his well spoken (English) and well informed crew were just wonderful during our 1 hour sunset felucca ride with a drop off at the Movenpick. Their hibiscus tea was delicious and we were well looked after. Ziggy also provided his contact details for assistance further along in our Egypt travels which was appreciated for 3 female adventurers.

We (two women and one ten years old ) sailed for three nights and three days with Captain Ziggy on his beautiful fellucca from Aswan to Edfu. That was an unforgettable experience. The Captain has the outstanding sailing skills, we were provided with fresh tasty food every day, and we went to the beautiful places and met amazing people. Even after we finished trip with him, he would still make sure we would find a reliable driver, and reach Luxor on time. Call captain Ziggy or leave a voice message on What'sapp (0020)1208562850.

This was one of my favorite experiences from my entire tour around Egypt. Thank you Ziggy and Abdullah for wonderful 5 days! Sailing on felucca is a special experience. It has its own peaceful tempo. I got an opportunity to witness daily life of fishermen and farmers living on riverbanks of Nile. I watched birds and farm animals inhabiting green islands. We camped at picturesque beaches. Sometimes during the evening we had fire and we watched stars and we drank beduin. It felt truly special and authentic. Ziggy and Abdullah were great hosts. Ziggy is also great cook. He makes sure there's plent of good and well prepared food. We sailed on mid-sized felucca of 'Paulette of the Nile'. There's no bathroom facilities, be prepared to pee in the bushes, and bring some repellent :) Mosquitoes can be quite annoying in the evening! Overall stellar trip and would recommend it. Very safe for solo travellers. If you feel like having a wonderful adventure call Ziggy +201208562850.

I highly recommend Captain Ziggy's Felucca to everyone visiting Aswan or interested in exploring the Nile by boat. Ziggy and his crew are really professional, accommodating and genuinely care about everyone on board. Ziggy can tailor the trip to your requirements and budget, whether you are looking to sail for a few hours or days. We started with a 3 hour sunset tour on the felucca and re-booked Ziggy again the next day for a full day. Ziggy organised absouletly everything such as food, beverages (alcoholic & non-alcoholic), snacks, desserts, shisha and stopped wherever we wanted for as long as we enjoyed being there. Ziggy will organise anything you ask him for with a smile on his face. His service was very price competitive and second to none. I have already recommended a few people to Ziggy's 5 stars service and will continue to do so. Hopefully we'll see you again for a longer Nile trip. Ziggy is easily reachable on WhatsApp messenger: +20 120 856 2850 and usually replies within minutes.
