Meet a driver at your hotel in Aswan, then transfer to a Nile River boat launch to begin the tour. Enjoy views of the Nile River, spotting birds on the way to Soheil Island, view the Aswan dam as you navigate along the Nile, and be sure to bring a camera, as traveling by boat offers some of the best, unobstructed views of the landscape.
