    My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.

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

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.

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.
