          Abu Simbel Temple Complex
          Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
          See the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel on a vehicle tour from Aswan. With a qualified Egyptologist as your guide, you'll enjoy a personalized visit to Abu Simbel on this private tour. With its four rock-hewn pharaohs, you'll agree that the Great Temple is one of the most impressive sites in Egypt, and the highlight of any trip to Egypt. On the short walk to the temple entrances, your guide will explain the history of the site, including details of the UNESCO-led relocation of the entire cliff face to higher ground, and how the temples were discovered by accident in 1813. Due to the large number of visitors to Abu Simbel, guides are not permitted inside either the Great Temple of Ramses II or the smaller Temple of Hathor. However, by using photos and illustrations, your guide will explain to you the structures and their interior artworks. You will then have free time to enter the temples and explore them at your leisure. As one of the few ancient Egyptian sites which largely escaped damage by past invaders, the interiors of Abu Simbel's temples are astounding. The scale of the buildings and their detailed decoration leaves most visitors in awe. The temples' attraction is further enhanced by their scenic location on the edge of Lake Nasser in the orange sands of the desert. The drive is approximately three hours each way. Then back to Aswan upon arrival transfer to Train station to ahead to Luxor or Aswan Airport to reach Cairo.

          Incredible guide
          Mansour was the most incredible guide. We had a wonderful 2 day tour around luxor. We learnt so much. He was exceptional in his ability to be passionate about his role and share that with us. Our guide was kind, patient and full of knowledge. He knew all the answers to our 9 year olds questions and was able to bring the history to life. We loved our 2 days and really covered so much ground. We got lots of hints and tips to make the rest of our time in Luxor incredible too.

          Khaled, fantastic guide!
          Khaled is the best! You’ll have a choice of guides, and I really recommend Khaled. He’s extremely knowledgeable, speaks great English, shared a lot of information beyond guidebooks. He also has a lot of local information and experience and never rushed us. We got terrific photos and enjoyed our time with him so much, we booked several whole-day tours. They felt like day trips with a friend. Most highly recommended.

          Khaled is fantastic!
          Khaled was wonderful, we both highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledgeable, shared a lot of information I never found in a guidebook. He gave us time, we got stunning photos and really had the best experience. So much so that we booked several whole-day tours with him. You couldn’t do better than to go with Khaled.

          Nice, but Would Not Book this Company again
          Wanted 120 Euro extra to Go to Valley of Queens on the Second day - After bargaining the Guide accepted 50 Euro extra to take us there. He was nice, but this was a no-go!!!!!!!!! We booked two Days, First day two of our group of three went to Valley of Kings with ihm (I stayed in the hotel feeling sick). My Friends Came back to the Hotel around 3 pm. Next day he took us to Karnak-Tempel and wanted to Show us Luxor Tempel (that was right beside our hotel, so we have been there before). We all agreed better to go to Valley of Queens - so he wanted 120 Euro extra for taking us there. We refused, them the bargaining startet. He pretended to Talk to his Boss and that he convinced him to take „only“ 50 Euro. We accepted, because we didńt want to lose more time. But all three of us felt this was Not correct!

          Journey through time: an unforgettable adventure
          My journey through Egypt's rich ancient history was made unforgettable thanks to my guide, Khaled. From the moment I embarked on this adventure, Khaled's expertise and passion for Egyptian history shone through. His knowledge about the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Hatchepsut was extensive, bringing to life the stories and significance of these majestic sites. Khaled's approach was not just informative, but also incredibly engaging. He had a unique ability to connect the past with the present, making the history resonate with me on a personal level. What made the experience even more special was Khaled's consideration for my interests and pace as a solo traveler. He tailored the tour to suit my curiosity, allowing me to immerse myself fully in the experience without feeling rushed. His recommendations for local spots to explore and dine at were spot-on, adding an authentic flavor to my trip.

          Best tour operator.
          This is not a review of the tour itself but the tour operator. Our tour was scheduled at 11:00 am on December 30. Unfortunately my wife had food poisoning and could not make the tour. We contacted the tour operator at 7 am on that date, requesting a cancellation with refund, well outside the 24 hour cancellation window. The tour operator did not hesitate to grant the request. We greatly appreciate its generosity. Later we sought additional advice from him and got frank and honest suggestions. The operator put the interest of its customers above its own monetary interest. Best and most honest tour operator I had ever met. Highly recommend it without any reservations.

          George was a terrific guide to the magnificent sights at Luxor
          We booked a tour from Safaga Port for Luxor, and has the good fortune to get George as our guide. We found him very knowledgeable in “Egyptology,” not surprising since he studies more every off-season. George made excellent use of our time, avoiding crowds and long lineups in the sun. We would highly recommend George for anyone wishing to make the most of always limited time in such a fantastic, historical spot.

          My partner and I had a great experience with Khaled. He took us to have the best food we had in Luxor. He was very flexible and let us add things to our trip so we could get the full experience that we wanted.

        We visited Aswan during our days in Egypt. It was a very long day, but what an exciting day. Our guide Khaled and our driver Mohmound were with us all this day and for several days while we were in Luxor. They are extremely knowledgeable and accommodating our every wish to experience Egypt. I would highly recommend this team if you were thinking of visiting Egypt. The best part of having a guide is the fact that we can have photos taken of us together on our trip.
