Great driver, below average guide

We drove from Aswan to Abu Simbel with a lovely driver (Adel?). He took us through a huge swathe of desert and to a lovely little rest stop in the middle of nowhere where we lounged and explored without any complaints from him. Once we arrived at Abu Simbel and met our guide, Abdul, things went a little south. He spoke English but was incredibly hard to understand, mostly because of his rushed and disinterested approach. He was unhappy with our tip, although I’m not sure any amount would have satisfied. We were thankful to spend most of the trip with the driver.

Dear Valued Guest , Thank you so much for taking the time to review our tours , For Abu simbel there are some facts in general like the guides explain the temple background and not allowed to enter the temples , so you have plenty of time to enter it alone then another free time to for the other temple and all tourists come back in same time which means there is no rush at all because you had all time till last min like all of the all groups and individuals there , As for Abdul , we never heard any complaint about his English before and no one asked you for any amount , it seems he was unhappy because of your English maybe , Kind Regards , Egypt Best Holidays Team

Abu Simbel private tour from Aswan
Jake K

Excellent and not to be missed tour from Aswan. To come to Egypt and not see the marvel that is Abu Simbel would be a crime! We were contacted well ahead of time by the tour operator Michael, he picked us up at our hotel on time in a comfortable private car. Our driver Mohammed was kind, attentive and very polite not to mention very skilfull with the vehicle and police checks which is a bit of an art form here. Our guide Suleyman, met us at Abu Simbel which he is a long time resident of. Imagine being guided by a man who's family traces its roots to the very place shrouded in thousands of years of history. There was nothing he didn't know or couldn't answer about Abu, his vivid descriptions and background stories incredibly rich in detail and colour added a whole new layer to a place we thought we already knew so much about from books and documentary films. Listening to him weave the stories with imagination and passion brought the ancients to life right in front of our amazed eyes. We arrived near noon and were stunned to be virtually alone and were able to linger at our leisure, taking it all in without any distractions. Suleiman encouraged us to sit in silence and let the spirit of the temple surround and inspire us. It was heartbreaking to have to leave this enchanted, magical place. Our return was just as smooth and the entire adventure is something we are sure never to forget. SHUKRAN Jazeelan to the entire team for an incredible day! Jakub and Ginna, Vancouver, Canada

Aswan Airport to Abu Simbel
Emilie L
, Nov 2019
We decided to do this day trip right off of our flight from Aswan and all in all this worked out extremely well for us. However, because we did it this way it meant we were on a tight schedule as you really don't want to be on the roads too late at night. FYI, we did have to haggle with the company to get them to pick us up from the airport (which, I don't totally understand because the airport is on the way and it was a private trip?). Haggling aside, the company ended up being fine with picking us up from the airport around 9:30am. This also worked in our favor as we ended up at Abu Simbel around noon, which is slightly after all the big tour groups, and meant we had the place to ourselves! Abu Simbel itself is absolutely spectacular and I would highly recommend going (though truly, don't bother spending too much time in Aswan if you can help it). Our driver was also very nice and accommodating and the trip included a short video about the UNESCO project to save Abu Simbel. Once at Abu Simbel, we had a tour guide but to be honest this was great but pretty minimal as tour guides aren't allowed in the temple. One bad thing was that we made one stop on the way (a pretty cool desert cafe place, though with basically 1 food option) and other than this there seriously was NO food to be found on the way or at Abu Simbel. There is a "cafe" at Abu Simbel but as far as I could tell it sold only chips and ice cream and no real lunch options. Pack a lunch if you can or you will be extremely hungry!

Dear Valued Guest ,,, Thank you for taking the time to review our tours .. We would like to clear that the airport is not exactly in the way to Abu Simbel but not far and it costs extra for the ( Entrance fee to Aswan airport for the guide and the car , Sign , Extra guidance fees to wait you like one hour at Aswan airport for pick up and service and taxes for this extra pick up ) , We think with all respect that you should be THANKFUL to us for making it as a COMPLEMENTARY ( specially it is not written in the itinerary ) instead of pretending it is one of your own rights on this tour and try to show that you understand about our own costs for our trips more than we do ,,,,,,, We really appreciate every word you have written and we will do our best to make our service meet our guests' desires ,, All the Best ,,Egypt Best Holidays Team
