We booked the 5 day cruise on the Oberoi Philae at relatively short notice through Luxor & Aswan Travel. Their organisation was perfect and we were greeted at each point by both a private driver and guide, who in some cases saw us right up to the check-in desks at airports. The private driver and guide was absolutely invaluable when it came to seeing the many breathtaking sites along the itinerary and allowed us to take our time where we wanted to to get a real appreciation of what we were seeing and where we were. The Oberoi Philae only has 22 Cabins which are expertly appointed and much larger than normal river cruising cabins. The food and service on board the Oberoi Philae was excellent.

Holy cow these guys know what they’re doing and are completely exceptional at it. All we can say is WOW I can’t believe the excellent service and quality of the tourism we received. We went into this trip a little apprehensive we didn’t know how we would like Egypt and because I’ve never used Luxor and Aswan before and I didn’t know what to expect. The people they have working for them that we interacted with are above and beyond from the service standpoint. Specifically Mohamed in Cairo and Ahmed in Luxor/Aswan…These guys know their stuff and are excellent what they do. Honestly we went into this trip feeling a little unsure and many of our family was worried whether Egypt was safe. I can honestly tell you there was not a moment on our entire trip that we felt any hint of being unsure or unsafe we felt completely safe every moment. The hotels they chose for us to stay in we’re all 5+ stars with all the amenities that you would want. The cruise ship is big enough that they have awesome amenities yet small enough that you get to know everyone on the ship. The fact that your guide is on the ship with you is absolutely amazing… if you decide at the last minute you wanna go for a carriage ride around Luxor ( like we did) Ahmed was able to make it happen and we have an amazing time. The guides are amazing and are full of so much knowledge sure all the history and stories about the temples and sites but also a little things that make your trip even better. For our hot air balloon in the valley of kings our guide arranged it that we were the first balloon up so as we were in the air we watched the sun rise over the valley of kings. All of our tours were arrange such that we got there before the crowds and a lot of the temples we felt we had all to ourselves. We had an additional two nights in Cairo after our tour ended and both our guides contacted us at night (this is after our tour is over) just to make sure we didn’t need anything, that we didn’t need anything and were all set prior to our flights home. Honestly I’m looking for a tour for Egypt you cannot be in better hands than Luxor and Aswan.

We were hot and flustered on arrival in Luxor and met by our exceptional guide, Ahmed Megelly. We were swept into aircon, given icy water and from then on were pampered and cared for the entire 5 days. The organisation and administration of our agent, Hani is of the best my husband and I have experienced in our approx 45 years of travel. His attention to detail and willingness to take over the work of another agent of a different company's failed planning and sort out our itinerary within 4 hours. In so doing he saved our holiday. The trip on the Nile itself is of the highlights of our lives and will be cherished. The majestic temples, unique sights, care for our wellbeing and comfort on the Sun Godess can be recommended to all and sundry. Thanks to Ahmed we were always given opportunity to receive just enough information, kept in the shade, selecting the best views, spoiled with best drivers and he chose the best time of day for outings before we became weary. So, Hani, in our hearts and minds you were the hero of our travels in Egypt! Thank you

I found Luxor and Aswan travel when I was desperate to plan a last minute trip to Egypt and none of the usual high end travel companies could move that fast. It was Hany the manager who picked up my call in the middle of the night Egypt time and assured me he could make this dream trip happen and he could do it in less than 10 days. So we booked our tickets to Egypt and hoped that Hany and his team would be there to make it happen. From the people at the airport (who were there to ease our way through the visa process) to all the drivers, we were never disappointed. We spent a couple of days at our hotel to acclimate to the time difference and on our third day we met Shima. Shima became our everything. She is an excellent Egyptologist but also a fierce ally. She looked after us like a mother. My daughter got a cold, Shimma insisted on stopping to get her medicine. When merchants became over zealous with their sales tactics, Shimma warned them off. If I could have a tour guide like her in every country I would never stop traveling. Many other people on our cruise were traveling in groups of 12-18. We had Shimma all to ourselves. I cannot recommend Luxor and Aswan travel more. I hope other Americans can look beyond the usual big name luxury guided tours and take a chance on this local company. I know I will tell everyone I know!

My wife and I had the most amazing Nile Cruise in Egypt with Luxor and Aswan Travel and the Egyptologist Michael Farah. Our cruise on the Ms Farah started in Aswan and ended in Luxor. The temples and historic sites were breathtaking, but what made the trip so great were, first and foremost, Michael Farah, and then the care & attention provided by Hany at Aswan travel. We had so many questions before booking the trip and Hany was extremely patient with us, guided us through the process, and provided us with great advice. As mentioned above, it was our Egyptologist and guide Michael Farah who made the trip memorable. He was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the history behind everything we saw. It wasn’t simply the history of the historic sites, but he was so well versed in the mythology and stories behind the history. One may say that this is to be expected from an Egyptologist, but our Egyptologists before and after him paled in comparison to how he brought everything we saw to life before our eyes. Moreover, as we got to know each other and we expressed interest in something in particular, he would find something truly amazing to show us that was off the beaten path. Both Michael and Aswan tours were also instrumental in helping us to organize our hot air balloon trip, and then our subsequent tours in Cairo and Alexandria. My wife and I were not particularly impressed with Cairo or Alexandria (except for the Pyramids of course) but we really enjoyed our entire Nile Cruise with Aswan tours and Michael Farah, and highly recommend them. Definitely ask for Michael Farah!!!

This was a trip for the books! My husband and I had wanted to go to Egypt for many years and we finally decided this was the year.

From the first email to Luxor and Aswan, right through the end of the trip every single detail was taken care of.

Everything far exceeded our expectations, from Airport pick up, helping us navigate immigration at the airport and transfer to different locations, everything ran smoothly.

Our guides knew their stuff. I learned so much more on this trip about Egypt than I ever learned in any history class. From Mohamed in Cairo to Ahmed in Luxor/Aswan, this trip would not have been the same without them. Both gentleman were kind, knowledgeable and we genuinely loved spending our time in Egypt with them!

Any concerns we had about traveling to Egypt were alleviated right away! Everyone we encountered on the Luxor and Aswan team provided exceptional service and kindness and we sincerely want to extend our heartfelt thanks to making this a trip of a life time.

If you are planning a trip to Egypt, do your research, educate yourself on the customs and attire in the county and go in with an open mind. I would highly recommend going with a reputable tour company such as Luxor and Aswan should you decide you want to travel here. They will take care of everything for you.

We loved the trip so much, that we plan on coming back in the next year and this time we will hopefully be brining our families with us.

Thank you for everything!

The tour was fine just wildly overpriced. The “luxury” cruise ship they booked for me, the MS Sarah II, is dated with poorly functioning AC units and broken appliances in many of the rooms. The food was solid (especially considering what’s on offer in Egypt) and the staff was friendly and attentive so it was a fine experience overall just not worth their huge markup. I met another tourist on the ship who was able to book three nights independently (basically the whole cruise) for $200 locally. The ticket prices and photo pass requirements have been relaxed considerably at most of the sites so the included tickets are not the value they were years ago. What you’re paying for is really the Egyptologist. My guide, Ahmed, was very personable and knowledgeable about ancient and contemporary Egypt and I appreciated speaking with him. I studied British Egypt for some time so it was interesting getting his insight as he is easily the most knowledgeable Egyptian I’ve met. I just don’t know if that experience was worth $750. The “four days” of touring really amounted to about 2-3 hours each day of visiting sites and then free time. We finished the fourth day at 11:30 and then they wanted to sell me an “optional” tour for more than 4x what i ended up paying a local company with a different Egyptologist. Even the high end Sofitel Cataract (who I used) hotel sells tours to Abu Simbel for less money than these guys. Had I known the tours were so short (which is by design), I’d have just booked everything locally and saved hundreds of dollars.

My wife and I did a 5 day Nile Cruise on a small dhabiya boat. The boat had just 8 cabins so the whole experience was very exclusive and tailored to our needs.

From our very first contact with Hany over a year before our holiday in Egypt (2 weeks in total) he gave us advice and guidance which helped to ensure every aspect of our travel needs were met.

We were travelling with friends, one of whom had a nut allergy and a number of other dietary needs. Our personal guide, Shimaa Esmail made sure the catering team on the boat were reminded of our needs before we embarked on this leg of the adventure.

The boat was comfortable (although the bed was a little hard) and quiet because we were towed by a tug boat some distance ahead of us when it was not possible to sail (very little wind) and the crew were friendly and attentive, particularly the chef. We were concerned about the food but it was excellent and all prepared fresh on the boat.

Shimaa was an excellent guide who made sure we arrived at the busy destinations on our tours at the optimum time and always made sure there were cold drinks available. She was very knowledgeable, particularly about the hieroglyphics and their religious and cultural significance and she answered all of our various questions.

As she was with us throughout our 2 week tour she also covered the most interesting points when they were most relevant.

I would highly recommend this cruise and using Luxor and Aswan travel to help plan your Egyptian Adventure.

Before reaching out to Hany via WhatsApp, I took time to read many of the reviews here and wondered where the negative ones were as they are all extremely positive. After communicating with Hany for a couple of days (he would answer promptly no matter what time of day/night), I felt comfortable believing that the service truly was top notch and decided to book our 9 day vacation with Luxor and Aswan Travel and was not disappointed.

I've travelled internationally several times but always booked a group tour. Due to COVID, we decided to try a private tour and it was the perfect fit for us as we were able to adjust our itinerary and maintain social distancing (no other people in the van or along on any of the sightseeing tours).

Hany scheduled everything we wanted to see and do perfectly and he continually checked in throughout our days in Egypt to make sure we were happy with our experiences. The drivers and tour guides were top notch and spent as much time answering our questions as we wanted (so much to learn!) so we never felt rushed.

The cruise ship (Sonesta St George) was gorgeous and the food was top notch! We were pleasantly surprised that L&A Travel provided us with a hotspot to use on the cruise ship so we had wifi access - what a wonderful perk!

When Hany says "All of our team is committed to your full comfort and joy", he really means it and follows through!

Thanks to Luxor & Aswan Travel for making our trip to Egypt absolutely amazing and unforgettable!

It was an absolutely amazing experience. Everything was so well organized and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The organizers were so responsive in the lead up to the trip, and made sure we were always in communication so that everything was clear and agreed upon. This made the entire trip so smooth and seemless. Then during the trip our tour guide Ahmed was simply the best. He was so organized and detail oriented, always making sure we had the best experience. His wealth of knowledge about Egyptian history and ability to answer any question immensely added to our experience. His personal warmth, friendliness and kindness also made the trip fun and personally gratifying. I can only highly recommend doing this trip and getting to know the incredible history of Ancient Egypt, the wonders of the Nile, and the friendliness of the Egyptian people.

Comfort and service on the boat was also excellent. The room felt comfortable/homey yet luxurious. The food was great and the service staff super helpful and professional. Everything was very clean, cozy, and taken care of.

Tip for other travelers: go during a cooler season for those who are not used to very hot temperatures.
