This tour was amazing. Michael is literally the best guide I've met so far in Egypt. He's knowledgeable, his English is perfect and his whole attitude makes you feel wonderful! Places we've covered were beautiful and interesting, and Michael did not hesitate to go the extra mile to make it possible for me to go up the Soviet-Egyptian monument for some truly superb views. I strongly recommend this tour when you're in Aswan, it was great!

My husband and I came to Egypt for a belated honeymoon, and by far this has been our favorite experience in Egypt! Michael our tour guide was superb - he was so knowledgeable, personable, spoke excellent English, and made some wonderful add-on recommendations throughout our tour that we were able to stop by, in addition to the High Dam, The Obelisk & Philae Temple by boat. Of the sites Philae was our favorite and stunning to see. Michael gave us a great history lesson on Aswan, as well as the Nubian culture, including their aromatherapy & essence, which lead us to a stop at Cleopatra Perfume Palace. It is family-owned, off the main path shop that specializes in essential oils & essence blends, all natural and organic. A must-see for sure, very hospitable and we walked out with a so many oils that we can't wait to take back home with us. Thank you Egypt Best Holidays and our guide Michael, we definitely will be back!

We did a full day guided tour to Aswan with Khaled Elsaady and had a great time. We started with Abu Simbel which was amazing and then continued to the high dam, the Philae Temple, and finished with a nile cruise to Nubian village. Khaled is so knowledgeable about Egyptian history and we were lucky to have him! Thank you, Khaled!

I was traveling solo to Egypt and happened up on this tour led by Bishoy. He was very knowledgeable and was able to provide great insight into all of the sites. I would definitely be looking to him again if (when) I visit again.

Mike speaks great English. I loved the fact that he asked me about what level of involvement I expected from him in the tour and didn’t try to push to stop in the oils factory. Very respectful!!!

Where to begin... Aida is by far one of the most kind, sweet and genuine tour guides/ new friend I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with while on vacation. She was very informative about each location we visited and Took the time to answer each and every questioned we had and went above and beyond for our group. She made sure we received great deals while shopping. She made us laugh and truly feel at home. I would recommend this tour to everyone. She truly have a beautiful spirt and a passion for what she does 🕌🇪🇬❤️🌍

Aida was knowledgeable at each location and made sure we were safe. She stopped to get us water before arriving at the Philae temple. She also arranged for us to have a boat ride to visit the Nubian Village ( my favorite) I would definitely recommend this tour to friends.
