Aswan Individual took care of all our transports/guides/excursions...during our 1 week trip in Egypt (Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Abu Simbel, Marsa Alam). Everthing was just perfect, nice people, very punctual, interesting guides, good value for money!!
I have used Aswan Individual twice, once for a two day felucca ride and a trip to Abu Simbel, and the other time was for a three day felucca ride.
It was sensational, the highlight of my family's trip to Egypt both times, you drift...More

Thank you so much for your amazing review. We hope to see you once again if you return to Egypt.
It is unfortunate that the Philae temple motorboat company wanted to charge you more than we recommended you pay. Unfortunately when you choose to...More
We had a great experience with Aswan individual. Everyone were very helpfull and made sure we had a good experience all the way! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and could interpret the different hieroglyphs in the temples.
I went to Egypt for the dead, and fell in love with the living.
Such warm hearted, gracious, helpful people everywhere that we really felt humbled and welcomed. Everything I read in this forum about getting hassled and hustled in Egypt turned out to be...More
I got Waleed & Rachel (Aswan Individual) name from other reviews on Trip Advisor for Egypt tours. My wife & I weren't disappointed.
They arranged our trip to Abu Simbel (from Aswan)- car, driver & guide. The Guide, Akhmed, knew his history; and our driver...More
Thank you so very much for the wonderful trips. When I found the web site, I asked a few questions by e-mail and Rachel answered right away. After a few e-mails back and forth, we found everything trustworthy, so we booked our trips in advance...More

When you contact Aswan Individual, you will likely be contacted by Petra, Waleed's right-hand person. The first time we used Aswan Individual (back in 2011), we had a tour guide for Luxor only. The only thing we did in Aswan, was Abu Simbel-- so our driver was also hired through Aswan Individual. I don't think that tour guides were allowed in Abu Simbel, so it wasn't necessary to have the same one.
Our most recent trip, we hired AI for transportation to Luxor, from Hurghada, and then our tour services within Luxor. Our driver was different from the driver/guide that we had in Luxor, but there wasn't any problem with that.
My husband handled the booking of our services back in 2011. For the trip this July, we automatically went with AI since we had such a great experience. Once I had the dates, I listed everything that we wanted to do while we were in Luxor. You will be quoted a price for the transportation-- and then you'll be informed of the entrance tickets. Petra and Waleed will kind of tell you how things will be grouped. We had a day for the west bank, 1/2 day for hot air balloon, with east bank in the afternoon, and we did Dendara and Abydos. We decided to book directly through the hot air balloon company, because otherwise you pay a 3rd party premium if that makes sense. They will give you the prices in Egyptian Pounds, but it's pretty simple to make the conversion.
