      Select the departure time that suits your schedule, and start the tour. Transfer to the Nile River jetty, where you’ll boat a motorboat for the trip to Gharb Soheil. Find a comfortable seat on the cushioned deck, and spot some of the landmarks at the edge of the Nile River, from the Tombs of the Nobles to the Aswan Botanical Garden and agricultural islands dotted with cows, camels, and fishing shacks. Shortly after passing the First Cataract of the Nile, you’ll reach Gharb Soheil, a Nubian village on the West Bank of the river. You’ll meet a local family to learn about their history, culture, and traditions, sharing a welcome glass of tea, Egyptian coffee, or karkade, a bright pink tea brewed from hibiscus blossoms. Following your time with the family, you’ll have time to visit the village with your guide, taking in the brightly painted houses, and a market full of fresh spices, handmade cotton scarves, and local produce. Then return trip to Aswan.

      Amazing day trip from Luxor to Aswan
      This trip has been amazing. Thanks so much to Mr Bahaa and the fantastic driver Ali. I requested a trip from Luxor to Aswan with intermediate stops to Esna, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Philae Temples and the experience couldn't have been better. The booking process with online payment was very fast and smooth and I received support throughout. On the day of the trip, Ali welcomed me at the airport and he has always been very professional and kind. Despite the long trip and the numerous stops, he managed to take me to the last temple before the closing time. I really appreciated the effort and I definitely recommend Sunrise Tours. Thanks

      Good booking experience and enjoyable cruise
      We contacted a few tour companies in Luxor regarding a Nile cruise, in search of a competitive price and an itinerary tailored to suit our needs, and Sunrise Tours were very accommodating. We booked entirely through WhatsApp and paid as we boarded, which made everything very simple, and they were always happy to answer any questions we had. Really enjoyed the cruise they booked for us as well :)

      Great Museum, poor experience.
      The Nubian Museum is a wonderful collection, well displayed in a great building. Lots of explanation of Nubian history and culture. However, the chap in the ticket office was almost certainly trying to scam us. He insisted we paid by card and then took my card, put it in the hand held card machine and entered a figure which I couldn’t see and just asked for my pin. I made him start again in full view - he was very angry - I am convinced he would have over charged us and then taken cash from the next visitor…. The visit was almost ruined by a school party who had no interest in the museum and just wanted to hassle us (for money). Teachers had no control.

      Best day out
      An incredible day, the water was so clear and the bluest I have ever seen. So many gorgeous colourful fish and unreal how bouyant the water was. A very nice lunch was provided and our crew were all very friendly. Definitely a must do activity

      High price for low value
      It's too expensive (almost USD 50) for a tour to a place tha has little to offer. If you want to have a good experience go to Philae (Agilika Island) to visit the Temple of Isis. Just skip Elephantine Island and save your money and your time.

      Tailor made to suit us perfectly!
      We had a fantastic 2.5 days of tours and transfers from Hurghada to Luxor and then Luxor to Marsa Alam with Sunrise Tours. Sunrise Tours was also the most reasonably priced of the many tour companies I contacted and by far the most accommodating. The range in pricing between companies can be enormous. We visited in summer with a young child when afternoon temperatures were 45C. Bahaa who is the head of Sunrise Tours was so accommodating and let us split our day -- starting very early (sights open at 6am) in order to be able to avoid the scorching sun and to have a much-needed rest in the afternoon and then continuing in the late afternoon/early evening. Starting super early also meant that we had some sights to ourselves which was absolutely fantastic. He also made sure that we got to see what we wanted which was of utmost importance to us as we had done our homework and knew exactly which tombs and temples we wanted to see. The communication and booking of the tours with Bahaa over Whatsapp and email was also very smooth. Our driver Walid had a great sense of humour and by Egyptian standards drove very well. Egyptians really do sometimes drive on the wrong side of the road! We think it’s because some of the highways which are dual carriageway have the carriageways so far apart that you can’t see the oncoming side and because there aren’t a lot of junctions to enter the highway the Egyptians find it sometimes easier and faster to just take the nearest carriageway even though one is driving against the traffic! When it gets dark, many drivers don’t switch on their car headlights which is something we still can’t understand. Walid was also very patient waiting for us in the scorching sun while we were seeing the sights. He also helped us by buying things like refreshments and food for us so we wouldn’t have to pay tourist prices. The car we had was a very new (3 year old) seven seater Mitsubishi with individually controllable air conditioning at the front and middle rows. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient but left us alone too often. Other guides we saw at the sights tended to explain more, but everyone is different in their requirements and we have always wanted to see the sights and are super interested in Egyptology hence we were hungry for every bit of information. Bahaa texted us each day to ask us how things were and at the end he also told us that we could have had a different guide if we had just told him that we were not completely satisfied. Seeing the fantastic ancient sights of Luxor and Dendera has always been a dream and thanks to Sunrise Tours we got to see them in the fine detail we wanted, at our own pace and at a much more reasonable price than other tour companies!

      A must do - guaranteed fun!
      This is a must to do and highly recommend! It was a lot of fun having the quad bikes in the desert and the view was unreal! Mustafa, our guide, was really great and made sure the group enjoyed their time. The sunset ride was beautiful over the desert, valley and nearby mountains.

      A great and truly well-guided trip to Abu Simbel
      We had such a wonderful and carefree tour with our guides. They picked us at our river boat on-time with a comfortable ride to the airport. We were then met at the Abu Simbel airport and wisked away in a comfortable coach bus. We had a personal guide to show us around the two temples and most importantly get us through the shopping stalls and back to the bus. The Abu Simbel temple was of course, Just AMAZING, and well worth the trip. We were very pleased about the entire one-day trip.

      Abu Simbel and Sunrise Tours ... AMAZING!
      Sunrise Tours and their trip to Abu Simbel were amazing. Our private guide was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I must "see" while in Egypt!

      The perfect Nile Cruise
      It was an amazing experience packed with lots of historical visits. We visited 2 historical sites each day accompanied by a very knowledgeable local guide. The visits were private with a personal guide and private transport to each site so we could explore at our own pace and ask questions/discuss what we were being shown. The hot air balloon was also an amazing experience although this is not private, with up to 20 people per balloon. The basket on the balloon is huge so there is plenty of room even when sharing with so many people. The tour operator was always available via WhatsApp, providing regular updates on who the tour guide was each day and what time we would meet. They always met us on the boat but it is worth noting that you have a different guide at each stop so nobody on board with you. However direct contact via WhatsApp with the tour operator works well. The ship that we were on was the MS Mayfair and was perfect, comfortable clean cabin, great selection, quality and quality of food. The lounge and open top deck were also comfortable and well equipped.

      Everything was perfect. We had a good chat online. The manager of the travel agency was very responsible and prepared a surprise for me. He upgraded the cruise suite for me. The tour guide was one-on-one. I had a good time in Egypt

      The nature of the Nile :)
      For our trip to Egypt, a tour that help us know more about the biodiversity of the region was something that we really wanted to do! :) Birdwatching in Aswan was a very nice experience to know more about this Nile Bird Hotspot! Our tour guide Fatma was amazing and shared with us her great knowledge! :D she also brought very useful material (guides and binoculars was perfect). Doing this trip by boat around the small Nile island was also a highlight! :) This tour took 2h, but we believe that extende the activity a bit more (1h, for example) and go a little further on the river our try a inland observation spot with a monocular could be also very interesting! We really enjoyed this morning in nature was a great way to start a day of exploration! :D
