“Great service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Since the first contact with Petra you are in good hands. We truly truly enjoy our felucca day in the Nile, for both of us it was great, no hurry, no people bothering you it was just amazing. Then our day tour to Obelisk, Philae, etc, was so nice as well, the people I think they see you with a guide and they do not bother you as well. So if you go to Egypt and want to be relax, not bother by the people trying to get the most amount of money from you, then chose Aswas Individual for your trip.
thanks for those two amazing days.

“Waleed, Petra & Aswan Individual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Waleed and Petra arranged our boat trip for two nights from Luxor to Aswan. I had to transfer money to Waleed from the UK so that Waleed could secure the boat. I was very nervous transferring money to someone I hadn't met but the transaction went fine and Waleed had someone collect us from our hotel and deliver us to the boat. When I was making the bank transfer I couldn't find any reviews on transferring money to Aswan Individual, so I wanted to let anyone else know that it worked fine for me.

Petra was very helpful on email before our trip.
She let us know exactly what to expect on the boat trip and gave advice on other activities.

The trip went very well, Waleed was very honest, kind and friendly. He met us on the boat when we left and paid for our taxi fare back to our hotel. I would reccomend Waleed & Petra from Aswan Individual to anyone going to Aswan.

Egypt is unlike what you see on the news and read in the paper (especially Aswan). It is very relaxed, friendly & trouble free - but a great travelling experience.

“Excellent guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Visited Aswan on a one day trip from Luxor. We had a great trip with Waleeds company to High Dam, Kalabsha, Philae and Unfinished Obelisk. We had a very well educated guide who really made it worth the while, even trying to teach us hieroglyfs.....

“Excellent Service, highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We found Aswan Individual via tripadvisor and used them to book a trip to Abu Simbel from Aswan. Petra helped us plan and select the right tour and provided a very swift and timely responses.

Price they offered was much lower than other tour operators and provided excellent service for the price. We decided to do a trip with the morning convoy as we had a flight to catch from Aswan airport in afternoon. Waleed met us outside our hotel sharp on time and introduced us to our driver, vehicle used was a brand new minivan and was very comfortable. We informed the driver about our flight and he assured us there wont be any problem and he made sure we reached airport on time.

Some other tour operators had tried to scare us that we had a risk of missing the flight and tried to offer another packages or trips which we were not much interested in but Petra guided us correctly and didnt gave any incorrect info.

Abu Simbel in itself is a must see attraction and you should take out time to visit this on your trips to Egypt.

“Outstanding Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We used this service for airport pickup, a trip to Abu Simbel and a Felucca ride. Petra was great helping set it up and Waleed met us at the airport and made sure everything went well. Drivers were great. The Felucca trip turned into a motorboat trip up the First Cataract because of the lack of wind in the morning. Everything was on time and I have to admit the price was outstanding for our group of six. Can't imagine using anyone else in Aswan for these services.
