What people are saying about Aswan

Summary: Excellent Nile Cruise by Real professional people. My Review: I was a bit afraid at first to book this tour because of the bad reviews but everything was completely different! Since the beginning of the tour, the pick-up up was on time by the driver Mohamed. We caught the train on time and the train was on the VIP class with air conditioning. Seats in the train were comfortable not like what the other people said!! The hot air balloon in Luxor was UNFORGETTABLE and our room was AT THE TOP. Our guide in Luxor "Taghreed" she was really excellent guide with a big experience she was able to answer all my questions about the Egyptian history and this made me really pleased. Nothing to complain about. The tour from A to Z was perfectly organized. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Well organized, correct on-site service, available and friendly guide in French and Get your Guide assistance by Shorouk Efficient and always adapting to our requests to find solutions.
