What people are saying about Aswan

Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.

Our cruise was postponed a day due to a previous cruise being delayed with Covid but the company was very quick to provide options for us and organise our delayed trip with no additional expenses incurred by us. The boat was 5 star and our cabin was roomy and comfortable. The itinerary travelled could have been a bit more relaxed and some of the sights visited with more leisure time but it was none-the-less an interesting and relaxing trip all up. Our guide was a qualified Egyptologist and very knowledgeable. The food was very good and there were always plenty of options available.

Amazing experience. The ship and the guide were just great. High quality ship ‘Le Fayan’ offers beautiful and cosy rooms and quality food. The excursions included in the itinerary along the cruise were impressively wonderful. And the whole experience was even made better by our funny and wonderful guide, Mr. Ahmed, who has all the knowledge about ancient Egypt and he just goes beyond our expectations and offering us the best experience and service. Thanks!

Our guide Ramzy was very knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about Egyptian history with him. He was always there for us and made sure that we didn’t have any problems. I would totally recommend him to our family and friends. Just be aware that you have to do a lot of tipping, it seems is the way it works here. But apart from that the quality of the tour is excellent.

Very good experience. Zaher was a great tour guide with extensive knowledge and ability to answer any questions. The tour was well organized for the best sights and also has excellent staff and food on board. Would recommend.
