It was a more than wonderful trip, and their appointments at all stations of the trip were set and they were always present before the time, and this made me very happy. All those I dealt with on my itinerary were wonderful and cooperative, whether they were drivers or tour guides. I do not forget to mention Sister Silvana, who was responsible for coordinating and following up the stages The course of my trip was professional, elegant and very cooperative, and also her response to my inquiries throughout the day was very fast and adequate, which made me feel safe in the way of her constant interest and classy dealings. I advise and from my experience to deal with them

We enjoyed this 5 days 4 nights Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. You can taste the Egyptian culture along the river cruise! Ramzy is a nice guide, he treated us drinks along our journey. Always cheerful and explain history of Egypt on spot of historical sites. An extra favour he helped, finding us an adapter for charging our phones! Really appreciate that! Tickets for the attractions are not included, the price of ticket is cheap, and tipping is required for some transportation. The basic ticket of the Valley of the Kings can visit 3 tombs, you can buy extra tickets for special ones. We know that when we exit, so check it out if you want to know more.

We took a 4 night cruise with Blue Shadow cruise boat from Luxor to Aswan. We were amazed by incredible sceenery seen from the boat and unique historical sites along the route. It is the best way to explore southern Egypt. Our guide Ahmed made sure we had an unforgettable experience. Visits to all sites were well organized by transport from the boat. We didn't wait anywhere in line to enter any site, which was a delight. All meals were included in this trip and food on the boat was very good with good variaty each day. We would highly recommend Nile cruise to anyone visiting Egypt.

We left the hotel at 4.10 in the morning, at 8 we already arrived in Abu Simbel, there were other tourists in the car, the guides took everything apart and went on individual excursions. I liked everything, except for the mini bus, I am 160cm tall, even I did not have enough legroom, my knees rested on the front seat, my neck was numb. There was no lunch, but there was a stop near the "shop".

Be prepared to be up before dawn for a 3 hour journey to Abu Simbel. Tariq made good time on the road. Mohammed was a good guide helping fill in some history and details of the interior. Two hours at the site is sufficient and then back on the road to Aswan. Enjoyable and no complaints. Definitely a good value for a hassle free excursion.
