While planning my next trip, I discovered I had not posted a review last time. This is probably because as a repeat visitor I do not need their services so much any more. I have used AI several times and always been happy. Their website is very helpful - it accurately shows some of the many interesting things to see around Aswan that for some reason the international tour companies do not visit. This is a shame in a way but if you do visit them yourself you will have a wonderful experience without the crowds. I really recommend more people to go to Aswan and venture out and about. You won't regret it.

Trip Advisor has never steered me wrong so when I was planning a trip to Egypt I immediately checked the forums to see what people were saying and to my delight I came across someone who talked about Aswan Individual. Well I checked into them and made contact with Petra who like the other reviews mentioned she contacted me back quickly and we began customizing our Egyptian adventure for the 4 of us

What I LOVED about Petra was her honest advice. She made sure to tell me where we didn't need a guide, gave me invaluable information on scams and things to avoid and always responded promptly to my millions of questions.

We flew into Abu Simbel to avoid the 3hr caravan ride down and our driver was there waiting for us at the airport and it turned out that when we pulled up to Abu Simbel we were the only ones there!!! He waited while we toured Abu Simbel then took us in the caravan on the 3hr drive up to Aswan. We were greeted in Aswan by Waleed who is phenomenal!!!!! He was so attentive and personable! He helped us check into our hotel and reviewed what our plans were for the next few days. He made sure we were happy and always checked to see if our driver or guide had taken us to any of those cheesy perfume, alabaster, papyrus shops. Nope, no unplanned pit stops, we were 100% overjoyed!

The next morning when we awoke, Waleed was there again to check on us and escorted us to our guide and driver. Said was our guide for the day and he is a gem!!!!!!!!!!! His passion is apparent, his knowledge exceptional and we had the best time with him. He even had the driver stop at a local market to buy water for 3EGP rather than the 15-20EGP at the sites which is a small gesture but it made us feel like he didn't look at us as "rich" tourists.

With Petras advice we were also able to book a 2 night last minute Nile cruise on a 5 star boat at a fraction of the normal price that turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip!!! Waleed even walked us to the boat to make sure we were happy with our rooms and the boat.

While on the Nile cruise Waleed provided us with Ehab who truly made our trip special!!! He was with us from Aswan to Luxor and was funny, insightful and told us things that weren't in the guidebooks. We even secretly asked both Said and Ehab the same questions to "fact check" as we call it and their stories and all their facts matched up. Sadly we couldn't use Petra in Cairo and our guide there had a different take on things that both Said and Ehab had told us. We checked google to see who was right and of course Said and Ehab were correct.

Anyway ALL the tours, drivers, and our entire experience is something we'll never forget!!!! Thank you Waleed and Petra for a magical and unforgettable time in Egypt!!!

I did several trips. It started with pickup in Luxor and then we went to see
Edfu, Gebel el Sil Sila, and Kom Ombo. The guide (Islam Mourad) was very good in fluent English en very enthusiastic with very much good information about the several sightseeings.
I also did trips to Philae Temple, High Dam, and Kalabsha temple also with this excellent tour guide. Then I did a trip to Abu Simbel on my own,but the driver was als from Aswan Individual and it was great service too. I ended with a trip from Aswan to Luxor with driver only and visited the Esna Temple. The only thing was that the driver was driver very fast and dangerous but it could not spoil all the great things I had seen.

A fantastic site - click in and they will find you anything!

Petra always answers quickly and proficiently and the guides are always well informed, on time and helpful! Waleed in Aswan very professional - knowledgable and suggests perfect trips.

Above all they run a 'non rip-off policy'! Essential....
Egypt needs the tourists back....everybody is suffering and the country has so much to offer.

For our trip to Egypt, my husband and I wanted to organize our time between visiting ancient sites, getting to know the people, and enjoying the unique and beautiful land. It was quite overwhelming to think about planning such a trip, especially since we wanted a more independent trip rather than an organized tour group. I accidently came across “Aswan Individual” while researching Nile cruises between Aswan and Luxor. I sent Petra a brief description of what we wanted to see and do and she responded immediately. Not only did she understand the type of trip we wanted, she added excellent suggestions based on her own personal experience. Petra really helped in getting an excellent itinerary organized that included much more than we had hoped for. Aswan Individual proved over and over again to be professional and organized, while maintaining a very personal touch. We appreciated the advice, the flexibility, and the overall concern for our trip (including safety). In short, Aswan Individual removed any anxiety and stress that we were feeling. Our many thanks go to Petra and Waleed, who are each very accomplished at their careers and also, to our guides, Eslam and Khaled, who were professional, full of knowledge, yet fun and enjoyable to be with. It was also a special treat to meet and sail with Sero and visit his family home for lunch. Petra truly understood that a huge part of traveling are the people one meets along the way. We very quickly came to love the people of Egypt and have Aswan Individual to thank for this.
