Nubian Museum and Village

  • Destination:
  • Duration: 1 day
  • Price: $45

First to visit the long- awaited Nubian Museum which was opened in 1997, This museum displays thousands of antiquities that would have been lost under the waters of Lake Nasser. Enjoy scenes of Nubian life depicted on life-sized displays.
Then, you will move to the Nubian Villages situated at the bottom of Elephantine Island Aswan. Take a trip down the Nile aboard a traditional wooden sailing boat and discover the simple and natural life of the Nubian people.
Nubians are friendly and hospitable. They often invite you to their homes for a cup of tea or “Karkade”, a drink made of hibiscus flowers. Many would happily show you their handicrafts. They sometimes invite you to taste their unique “Shamsi” bread which has a special baking technique. The bakers, usually the women of the village, let the dough rise in the sun before baking it. Some connoisseurs claim that the “Shamsi” bread is one of the best kinds of bread in the world.

After such hospitality, a reciprocal gesture of generosity is not necessary but would certainly be appreciated!

At the end of the tour will transfer you back to your hotel.
