        Unforgettable!!! Amazing!!!
        What an experience!!! A perfect trip planned out by Luxor and Aswan Travel. I can recommend this to anyone and everyone. We did the Esmeralda cruise which was lovely in all aspects. Pool, food, staff, cleanliness and comfort. The part that made it a "private tour", our tour guide, Mo (Fetas Moha), was such a great tour guide, gentleman and now friend. Extremely knowledgeable about everything, not just the history of Egypt, but also current affairs. He helped us with photos, advice, always gave us all the options, negotiating with the locals, just going above and beyond. We were so lucky to have him as a guide and highly recommend that you ask for Mo! He easy going, fun, and a good sport. We really can't fault this trip, its one to remember. Pack your shorts, suncream and hat, and book this tour for an unforgettable experience. It exceeded our expectations.

        We had a great experience on this Nile Cruise, the places, history and landscapes are just amazing! Mahmoud is a great guide, very passionate and so knowledgeable, we really appreciated his company, the insights on ancient Egypt and the advises for enjoying at best your holiday. He was always keen on replying to all our questions and adapting the plan for guaranteeing us the best experience! We super recommend to book the cruise with Luxor & Aswan Travel ☺️

        Nile cruise
        We didbthis trip on the MV Amwaj. Very good service and excellent food. Our private guide Dr. Ashraf was an excellent guide. He showed us the tempels of Philea, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Karnak, Luxor and Hatsjepsoet. Very knowledgable about ancient Egyptian history and religion. Most important he is a very pleasent person and has a good hart.

        Highly recommended trip
        The trip was great! We visited every temple, which are breathtaking, and the guide was alright. I would have appreciated if the guide put a little bit more effort when explaining the paintings and the art in general. But other than that, it was fine. As for the Zeina Cruise, it was all very nice. The staff was absolutely amazing, specially the chefs and waiters. The food was way better than I expected and the rooms were spacious and clean. Definitely a trip to remember.

        Great tour!
        Highly recommend the cruise and the company. The boat was very accommodating, the food plentiful and diverse, staff very attentive. We were escorted by Mr. Hassan, a very experienced Egyptologist who patiently and professionally explained to us many details about Egypt's treasures and rich culture. And even gave us super helpful tips about what to see next on our itinerary.

        Great private tour guides!
        I was completely impressed with the tour guides, communication and overall planning. We’re spent several nights in Cairo before our Nile Cruise, and then relaxed in a beach resort in Hurghada. The Farah was a fabulous ship!

        Perfect Communication, Great Trip
        There are MANY boats and tours and tour companies offering this adventure, almost all of which offer virtually the same itinerary at many price points. Our boat (Sonesta Moon Goddess) was a step above what we expected, and arguably one of the better boats on the route. But what made Luxor and Aswan Travel stand out was their extremely responsive communication. All of my pre-trip contacts were answered rapidly, if not immediately. It's hard to believe Hany is only one person, but maybe he is. And if so he is the most amazing and responsive travel planner on earth. They arranged air (EgyptAir) from Cairo to Luxor and back to Cairo from Aswan, including transfers both ways in Cairo. We also did the Abu Simbel trek, which was a highlight of the trip for me. They arranged a private guide/Egyptologist (George) who was smart, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, helpful. I can't say enough good things about him. There were times when I might have liked the anonymity of a group, but we learned so much more having him to ourselves. I think we could have spent somewhat less $ with other arrangements, but the high level contact we got from Luxor and Aswan Travel was well rewarded. And, while I'm not certain, I believe they made extra effort to get us on a boat well above the class of service we expected and paid for. Thanks so much to Hany and his team for perfect arrangements.

        Luxury Dream Vacation
        It was a grand adventure!! Hany`s Organisation was perfekt, everything went flawless. Our guides had an encyclopedic knowledge and could bring ancient Egypt to life. The crew on the dahabyia treated us like royalty. We are really grateful for all the thoughtfulness, the excellent food and service that they gave. Special thanks to Hany, Fatma and Hassan for making this a Dream Vacation!

        Incredible day in Cairo with the family
        Just back from a recent day trip to the insane city of Cairo and what a trip it was, incredible from start to finish! We flew up from Hurghada (why anyone would brave a 6hr bus trip when a quick 45min flight is available for not that much extra is beyond me). As I was coming with 2 kids (11&13y.o.) and wanted to cram as much into the day as possible I didn’t want to bother with “winging” it, so employed the services of Luxor & Aswan Travel services to pick us up from the Airport, take us around the sites and then deliver us safely back to the Airport. We had a wonderful Guide lady by the name of Hoda, who was able to look at my itinerary, swap a few things around based on her extensive local knowledge to fit in as much as we could. We started off at the Cairo Citadel, absolutely breathtaking and well worth a visit with an incredible vista over Giza to the Pyramids in the distance, Hoda explained everything keeping the kids entertained and picked all the best spots to take photos of us all, you could easily spend a few hours in this place but we had a full day to cram and I have to admit we never once felt rushed or pushed to hurry up. Hoda took us to the best parts give us some historical background and then drop back to allow us to explore and wander about ourselves. Next up was the Cairo Museum and as we had the kids with us and they wouldn’t exactly be enamoured with walking around a dusty old museum for hours on end, Hoda once again came to the rescue taking us to see the best bits for the kids, i.e. King Tuts golden mask and the mummies explaining everything before leaving. No trip to Cairo is complete with seeing the incredible Pyramids, there was a huge queue to get inside the Pyramids so again Hoda to the rescue saying this was the ideal time to go enjoy lunch at Kufus whilst the queue reduces and lo and behld by the time we got back down we where able to walk straight in, next up she negotiated with the local Camel operators and myself and the kids took a ride down to the Sphinx with the wife accompanying Hoda in the car to await our arrival. After an incredible day we bid our farewell to Hoda and the driver took us back to the Airport, there was no stopping at Perfume shops etc, it was all professionally run and would thoroughly recommend using both the travel agent and asking for Hoda as a guide, they made our trip to Cairo completely stress free and feature packed, top service!

        Fabulous Agent and Tour Guides!
        Luxor and Aswan Travel deserves 10 stars. The organization of our trip, the response time when communicating with the agent, the selection of the guides, and the coordination with the guides and drivers was seamless. We never had to think about anything. It was all taken care of for us. Our guide in Cairo (Mira) was such a joy to spend time with. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and encouraged our questions on the history and culture. While traveling on the Nile Cruise our guide Mohamed Salah was exceptional. We felt like we were traveling with a friend. His knowledge, as well as his skill as a storyteller, greatly enhanced our understanding of every place we visited and made this a truly memorable experience. It is a pleasure to recommend Luxor and Aswan Travel!

        Wonderful cruise with great guide
        Mahmoud was a terrific guide; he really knows his Egyptology and was kind enough to make changes in the tour to suit our needs. Luxor and Aswan tour company provided complete, timely and accurate information. No worries about anything! The MS Hamees was a comfortable ship with great food and ambiance. Highly recommended!

        Three nights trip with M/s Royal Princess Egypt
        Excellent and clean conditions inside the cruise rooms, well ventilated rooms, very friendly room staff and especially very nice food. Even though we are vegetarian, we got really nice food with desserts. Restaurant manager Mr Mohamed Al aafy was very supportive and made us lentils and vegetable rice specially for us whenever we asked for. Very memorable trip, recommended for families.

        Once in a Lifetime Trip with excellent Egyptologist Guide
        We had the most enjoyable 5d4n cruise with Luxor and Aswan Travel (LAT), which turned out to be the best part of our Egypt trip. Prior to the trip, communications with Hany were always seamless, and he responded extremely quickly and was very helpful even during the trip itself. As some reviewers here have noted, it can be a bit nerve-wrecking to pay the entire cost of the cruise upfront (especially given the not-so-ideal reputation of certain Egyptian individuals/establishments), but all went well and Hany and LAT turned out to be very reliable - Indeed, our optional Hot-Air Balloon ride had to be cancelled due to strong winds aloft, but Hany was prompt in refunding the amount to my card (even though there were some delays from the bank, but Hany managed to settle everything). As for the tour itself, we were fortunate to have Dr. Ashraf with us throughout our entire cruise. Dr. Ashraf is a certified Egyptologist who is extremely knowledgeable and seems to know ancient Egyptian history like the back of his hand, plus he is able to read Pharaonic (i.e. Hieroglyphs) fluently and explain every single inscription to us at each Temple or Tomb. From his interactions with other locals, we could tell that Dr. Ashraf is a very genuine and kind-hearted individual who takes pride in his work and his country. I won't go into too much detail on the sights themselves (since there's plenty of info online), but these were absolutely breath-taking and definitely worth seeing at least once in your lifetime (although it can be quite packed with tourists most of the time...) The cruise from Luxor to Aswan (or vice versa) is definitely one of the most time-efficient (and, most importantly, stress-free) ways to travel the Nile and visit some of the most quintessential ancient sites in Egypt if you are pressed for time. Would highly recommend LAT and Dr. Ashraf to anyone looking to visit Egypt!

        A Recommended Tour
        We loved the Nile River Cruise and excursions to the temples, the dams, the specialty markets. Our guide, Mahmoud Hassan, an expert Egyptologist, gave us a vivid picture of ancient sites and shared the highlights of temple preservation. The cruise along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan had beautiful scenery and sunsets, as well as comfort amenities.

        Excellent cruise, even better Egyptologist
        This was an incredible experience - the cruise ship had charming interiors, the crew were all very friendly and helpful, and there was nightly local entertainment on board the cruise. Most importantly, our Egyptologist Momo Salah was brilliant - he was really organised, gave us fascinating explanations about the Ancient Egyptians (weaving all that knowledge into concise stories), and allowed us the perfect amount of free time at each temple and site. I really recommend it!

      I tried to book a Nile Cruise but it was too late and no places available, Mr Hany prepared a wonderful alternative by car from Luxor to Aswan and day trip to Abu Simbel, that was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND UNFORGETTABLE, with a fantastic tour guide, Mr Yasser who helped us through all our adventure in perfect spanish, with remarkable punctuality, politeness, respect and professionalism. Hotel booking was excellent in both cities, all handled by Mr Hany from Luxor and Aswan Travel. I hope I can travel with them again. Beautiful country, beautiful people and the wonders you’ll see will be forever in your heart.

      Had a very well organized tour and were thrilled to have a brilliant guide and driver both called Mustafa with whom we spent 5 days touring Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbal.

      Mustafa is an ex school teacher with a wealth of knowledge about Egypt and we were grateful to learn so much from him.

      Would recommend to anyone!

      5 stars experience!!! I had the pleasure to visit the West Bank (Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Ramses III temple, Hatshepsut Temple) with a well prepared and passionate guide Ahmed Drwish. I would recommend the private tour with him, Ahmed is a very kind and honest guy, passionate about the history of his magnificent country and he was able to transfer me the same passion and appreciation.
