Amazing time in Aswan
The day trip to Abu Simble was great. We also added the option to visit a Nubian village in Aswan. The tour guide and driver were very pleasant and helped make the day enjoyable! Would book with them in the future

One tour you shouldn't miss in Egypt
Nov 2020
There is not much one can say about Abu Simbel Temples. They are so overwhelming that you search for words and find none.
The company is very flexible and client-oriented, so you can get a tour tailored just for you. Michael, the guide, is knowledgeable, friendly and the only good driver we have met during our trip to Egypt. Highly recommended.

Best trip ever!
I’m not exaggerating when I say touring with Michael was my favorite trip ever. He was able to rearrange things perfectly to accommodate some visiting dignitaries so I didn’t miss any of the sights. On top of that he is an incredibly knowledgeable guide and a great photographer too :) Thanks for everything and I hope to be back in Egypt soon!

Great experience with Michael

Mike is a very good guide with a rich knowledge of ancient egyptian culture. We went to the temple of isis and it was amazing! Avoiding crowd, private transportation and epic views. What else can you ask for?

You cannot beat the service of this agency. We booked the night before and got door to door service. Tiger was a great guide, as was Mona? The following day when I went to Philae. If you are on Aswan and need a trip, contact Michael. He won't let you down. Brilliant.

Abu Simbel is an absolute must see bucket list item!!!
This tour is not to be missed. While it is roughly a three hour drive to and from Aswan each way, it is well worth the journey. We chose exactly what time we wished to depart from Aswan and our guide, Big Mac, made it happen. Big Mac and two drivers arrived 10 minutes early. Two drivers were included to ensure safety, in case one became tired. This was a really nice touch! Once we arrived we were given all of the pertinent information and then proceeded to tour the Temples on our own as tour guides are not allowed in the Temples. We stumbled upon a bit of travel luck as we had the Temples completely to ourselves! We departed around 6:45 am, toured the Temples around 10 am and returned to Aswan around 3:00 pm. To say these Temples are awe-inspiring does not quite do it justice. You must visit!

We added on a trip to the Botanical Gardens via boat ride following our trip to Abu Simbel. If you have the time this is a fabulous stop. The entrance fee is only $20 Egyptian Pounds and the grounds are shaded and lovely. We were able to stroll around with Big Mac at a very relaxed, comfortable pace barley noticing another soul. The gardens smell of fragrant flowers from around the world and have beautiful views of the surrounding Nile river banks.

Lastly, we wanted to applaud Big Mac and the company for taking exceptional care of our fellow traveler. She was travelling alone. Our guide and the company made sure she felt safe and secure. Her cruise company moved the departure time to an earlier time while we were in mid tour. The cruise company threatened to leave without her, but Big Mac and the General Manager of the company made sure this did not happen. The driver's flew through the town of Aswan while Big Mac stayed on the phone with the cruise ship the entire time. Our fellow traveler safely reached her boat!

Great day!
Our tour was fantastic! It was very easy from pickup to drop off. Our van was very comfortable for the long drive. Big Mac was very fun and entertaining! He was knowledgeable, informative, and made the day a delight. The temple was a must see and definitely worth the drive.
