        Amazing Egypt adventure
        We recently spent 8 nights split between Luxor, Aswan and Cairo with all our private tours and internal transfers handled by Hany at Luxor and Aswan travel. Both of the guides we had were amazing, with a special mention for Hassan who went out of his way to make our days with him interesting and special. We also really appreciated the help you organized at the airport for our internal flights which made things run smoothly. A special mention also for our drivers who navigated their way through the crazy traffic and always made us feel safe. We would love to return to Egypt in the future and would definitely use this company again.

        It completes our Egypt journey
        Good design of the trip which can see many great temples and monuments which complete our journey in Egypt. There are add-on items with different options at each stop, it is totally on our own discretion to sign up. We enjoyed a lot the time spent at the small village at Aswan, Abu Simbol Temple and hot air balloon trip in Luxor overlooking Valley of King's, sun rise, Nile river and Sahara desert. Do note the hidden visits at local shops although no obligation nor force selling, can ask to skip if not interested, though was fun to us given a first timer in Egypt. All in all, I think a very good arrangement by the agent, we were well taken care of from our hotel and send back after the trip. Their choice of tour guide (Omar has provided clear info, great at at photo taking, funny and helped us to sort out any issues during the trip, thanks a lot) , drivers, cars and cruise (staff and food are amazing, just room hygiene needs improvement) are great.

        We sailed on Concerto and had a very nice experience. I will especially mention our brilliant tour guide Ahmed Sliem who with great enthusiasm and knowledge gave us an unique insight into the ancient history. The tour and the guide are highly recommended.

        Memories for life
        We had an amazing trip on the Nile. Our guide Ahmed Silem was so dedicated to his job. He told us all we needed to know both about all the attractions and the citys. I highly recommend him as your guide.

        Truly exceptional experience
        This was our first Nile cruise (we were on the Steigenberger Minerva) and our expectations were far surpassed. The ship’s crew was exceptional, the tour schedule was the right amount and pace, and Luxor and Aswan Travel was responsive and provided top service. Our guide, Waleed Mourad, was outstanding. His deep expertise in Egyptology, along with his friendly and personable manner, made for a truly superior experience. Waleed and the ship’s crew made our trip safe, comfortable, and extremely rewarding.

        12 Day Private Egyptian Tour
        We had been planning a trip for years and finally decided to do a 12 day Egyptian tour with Luxor and Aswan Travel. Obviously there is a little bit of apprehension when the trip is controlled by a tour company but rest assurred the trip was handled with complete professionalism. We even requested some last minute alterations to inclue El Alamein and 'Hany' made the additions at a very reasonable price. From the reception at the airport to the drivers always having cold water available and the expertise of the tour guides (Roma and Hussan) made our trip magical. Additionally, everyone went out of their way to ensure the trip was conducted at our pace and any recommendations for additional tours and experiences were presented without any pressure. We highly recommend this tour company and will certainly be using them again. The trip was everything we hoped for and this was because of 'Hany' and the professional team at Luxor and Aswan travel.

        Good itinerary, but untrustworthy guides.
        This company gave me many options to choose from and came through with an amazing itinerary for my vacation. They had a man in a suit waiting for me at the airport, private driver's, and private tour guides. As well as nice hotels and a nile river cruise. The only reason I am giving it 3 stars is because of an incident that happened on the 2nd day of my trip. We had a tour guide, Waleed, who was knowledgeable. However, on our 2nd day, Waleed told me he needed me to transport a gold bracelet with me when I flew to Luxor the next day. According to him it was worth $6,000. When I asked why he couldn't ship it, he told me he can't. When I expressed my concern with this request saying I didn't want to get arrested, he assured me they wouldn't bother a tourist with an expensive braclet. The next day Muhammad, a guide that picked me up for the airport, gave me the braclet with a fake invoice to transport to Luxor. When I arrived to Luxor, the next person who greeted me took the braclet. This was a very scary thing to happen and had me and my wife scared we were committing a crime in a foreign country, but I felt obligated to do this out of fear the company would leave us stranded because I didn't know who was in on it. Our next guide Muhammad (different than the first one in Cairo) was amazing and was the best part of the trip. Make sure to request him if you use this company. I just wish they didn't use there guests as mules to transport items which I could only assume are illegal accross the country.

        Very Good Experience Overall
        We booked with Luxor & Aswan after family members took a trip with L&A two years prior and loved it. We also very much enjoyed our experience. Hany was very responsive and responded quickly to all questions. Our guide in Cairo, Waleed, was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. We also appreciated that he had a bag of water bottles in the van for us each day. From Aswan to Luxor, our guide George taught us so much. I can’t imagine touring the temples without his expertise and storytelling flare. George even took us to some spots beyond the typical tours. All of our stops for food were excellent, and we also enjoyed the stops for shopping – there was never pressure to buy. L&A also organized drop off and pick up for a scuba diving liveaboard from Sharm-el-Sheik that we had booked separately. Hany still kept in touch with our boat to ensure easy handoffs to and from the boat. The only difficulty we experienced was traveling from Sharm-el-Sheik to Aqaba. Our diver dropped us off an hour before the terminal opened, with only outside in the heat as an option to wait. We saw another tourist van wait for the hour so people could remain in the air conditioning. The ferry ended up delayed by an hour, so it was two hours out in the heat. Hany was very attentive in messaging us and calling the ferry port to make sure everything was still okay – we just wish we had been able to wait in a van, as I nearly fainted from depletion. We think the driver may have misunderstood some instructions here. When we got to the other side, there had been some miscommunication on the part of the person who was supposed to meet us, and we waited outside of that terminal for another half-hour. It was kind of the company to buy us an additional meal as an apology, but that was a rough day. But, it was the only day we experienced any issues. We traveled for 2 weeks in Cairo, and from Aswan to Luxor with a visit to Abu Simble, to Sharm-el-Sheik, and on to a few days in Jordan with services booked and organized by L&A.

        Trip of a lifetime. Thank you Luxor and Aswan Travel!
        We did the 8 day tour of Egypt including the four night river cruise from Aswan to Luxor, 3 nights in Cairo and Alexandria day trip. Coming from Australia we were a little anxious leading up to the trip hearing about tensions rising in the Middle East, but we were assured the trip was secure and safe and we were so glad we went through with it. Throughout the entire trip we received perfect communication from Hany (tour organiser) and felt so safe and supported from our first airport transfer to our last. Our first Egyptologist guide Mohamed (Mo-Mo) met us in Aswan and was incredible! His knowledge and storytelling was so impressive and he was so friendly. Momo stayed with us along the whole 4 night cruise and also did the Abu Simbel added day trip with us. We could not speak more highly of him and his service. Highlights in this half of the trip: Abu Simbel temple is incredible- our favourite temple and definitely worth the additional cost; Edfu, Kom Ombo and Philae temples- all so impressive in their own right; Valley of the Kings, Luxor temple and Hatshepsut in Luxor were insane! We also added the hot air balloon flight in Luxor which was absolutely phenomenal (see photos). After flying back to Cairo on day 5 we were met by our next guide Shareen who was with us for Cairo and the Alexandria day trip. We were again so impressed by the knowledge and friendliness of Shareen, and also a special mention to our driver Khalid in this time who managed to make us feel so safe and welcome even without speaking English. Highlights on this trip were: the pyramids and sphinx- bucket list items which exceeded expectation. Catacombs in Alexandria were so impressive, and the Egyptian museum in Cairo was full of artefacts- could spend countless hours in there, especially with all the knowledge that Shareen had to give. Overall we could not speak more highly of our 8 day Egypt tour and would encourage anyone thinking of going to absolutely do it! We chose the ‘deluxe’ accommodation package and were so impressed with the hotels and the cruise. Food provided was delicious- huge gourmet buffet breakfasts at the hotel in Cairo, plus amazing buffet breakfasts, dinners and lunches on the cruise. The cruise staff were also lovely and worked very hard to make us welcome and comfortable. We ordered room service dinners at our Cairo hotel but there were multiple restaurants and bars in the hotel to choose from. Advice for the trip- make sure to have small amounts of EGP cash on you throughout the trip- you will need this to tip staff. Also if you only have bigger notes some places will not provide change but this isn’t a huge issue. As your guide will tell you- outside many of the tourist areas there are merchants trying to sell you anything and everything. They are vocal and persistent, but never were too in-our-face or aggressive. We were not used to this coming from Aus but it was no issue and certainly didn’t affect the trip at all. Also apologies for the photo quality- I am definitely no photographer. 10/10 trip of a lifetime. Thank you Luxor and Aswan Travel!

        Best of the best in luxor
        We have been extremely pleased by the guidance of Ashraf, the wonder of Luxor was as deep as his amazing knowledge of the history of his own country, ancient languages and populations. We do immensely recommend him as guide and to follow his suggestions. It has been an hamazing experience. Thanks Ashraf, you are the n. 1🥇

        Amazing Trip
        We had Ahmed S. as our guide every step of the way. We meet him at the airport and he stayed with us everywhere we went. He throughly explained historical sites, what to watch out for concerning safety. Being a woman he stayed very close to me as we entered pyramids, bazaars, souvenir shops. He explained many customs and questions that I had. I would use this company again and definitely ask for Ahmed S. I totally felt safe with him and my husband. His English was very good. We will miss you Ahmed II !

        Awesome Tour Guide for Nile Cruise - Ahmed sliem
        We just finished a four day three night cruise from Oswald to Luxor on the Le Fayan. Our tour guide was incredible. His name is Ahmed sliem. He was very patient and watched over us to ensure our safety during the entire trip. It was great to see all the history in Aswan and Luxor and the stops between.

      We booked a 5 day cruise from Luxor to Aswan, stopping at all of the main sites along the way. Hany from Luxor and Aswan travel was our point of communication and helped us to organize everything. We booked this tour very last minute, and he was able to find us an available cruise boat with only a few days before the departure date. Hany was very helpful and always quick to respond to any questions that we had. We were on the boat "Al Kahila," which was very nice with comfortable rooms, a good buffet for all of our meals, and very friendly staff. Booking through Luxor and Aswan Travel, the price also included all of the entrance fees for every site we visited, arrival and departure transportation, transportation from the boat to all of the sites, and our own private Egyptologist tour guide! It was so nice to have all of those things taken care of for us and to not have to worry about it ourselves. Our guide, Mr. Massoud, was amazing. He was so knowledgable about Egyptian history and all of the temples we visited, and we were so grateful to have him with us during this trip. Overall we are very happy with our tour and can definitely recommend using Luxor and Aswan Travel to book your Egyptian holiday.

      My experience with "Luxor & Aswan" was excellent from begging to end.

      Hany (the person I always talked with) is a perfect tour organizer. From our first communication I made it clear that I wanted to book with a specific cruise (Farah), and he made sure to get me a space on that cruise. He was always quick to respond to any questions I had. Also, during our 5 days tour, he was always sending me messages to check that everything was OK and that I didn't need anything.

      The total price paid included all the entrance and fees to all the activities.

      The Farah Cruise was excellent in every detail. The facilities, the rooms, the staff, the food, the activities, the night entertainment, etc..

      Also, the Egyptologist provided to us (Yasser) is an excellent Egyptologist and organizer. He had great knowledge about everything (there wasn't a question he didn't know the answer to). He also had so many years of experience doing this type of activities that he knew perfectly well how to organize all the tours in such a way that we were always almost alone (with no other tourist). We would always start our tours almost alone, and when we finished and enjoyed each tour, those places would be starting to jam-up with people.

      Also, the Abu Simbel tour was perfectly organized and we even enjoyed more hours in Abu Simbel than tourist with other agencies (I know this because we saw groups coming after us and leaving before us).

      I couldn't be happier with my experience with "Luxor & Aswan", the Farah Cruise and the Egyptlogist provided. I highly recommend this tourist and can wait to book with them again in the future.

      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

      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!

      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.

      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 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!!!

      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.

      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!

      We had an amazing time travelling from Luxor to Aswan on the MS Premium. The staff on board provided an outstanding level of service and the food in particular was beyond our expectations.

      We have recently finished our trip and are overwhelmed with some of the sites we have seen in a short 4/5 days. Our guide Mohammed Badawy was perfect from the very start, making us feel comfortable and catered for. He was a true expert in archaeology and blew us away with his knowledge at every site we visited.

      We would recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing the historical sites along this stretch of the Nile.
